Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* Alex Hoffman on Book Of Void
* Ben Towle looks at a certain kind of comics page
that's familiar but a bit more difficult to describe than most. I missed this post, and it's been a while since its publication, but I liked it at a second glance for sure.
* I agree with a lot of this Brian Hibbs essay
on the recent problems experienced by Marvel Comics, which reached a recent low particularly in terms of number of regular titles with a decent audience. It's one of the better cases I've ever seen against
loading in the tie-ins and stacking titles within specific characters or concepts. I think it's been this way for a while and it's just gotten worse and worse. There might be some mitigation against the poor effects of some of these moves if the work itself was great, but most Marvel work i read is mediocre in a way that just kills prolonged attention, let alone prolonged attention + hoops to jumps through.
* Jason would like you to know he likes Thor: The Dark World
better than you do.
* finally, I'm not sure why I didn't hear about this comic
's first part, but from what I've seen it's pretty amusing. I just can't stay in 2016 anymore to be able to read it.
