Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Gina Gagliano shares a Sara Varon recipe for Sugared Flowers.

* the always-interesting artist Ladronn draws the Incredible Hulk.

* if you have several minutes of free time today, like a coffee break, and you haven't tried Ryan Holmberg's manga column at TCJ yet, this installment is a fine entry point for its discussion of the industry's reaction to this year's major earthquake in Japan.

* Ty Templeton wishes R. Crumb a happy birthday.
