Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Alex Hoffman on Poppies Of Iraq. Roy Thomas on Fantastic Four #1.

* in a holiday mini-episode of his fine podcast Virtual Memories, Gil Roth brings sad news that the brilliant translator Anthea Bell isn't doing well.

* B. Clay Moore writes on one of the many "supers being normals" scenes that helped endear the X-Men to a generation of comics-reading fans. I'd like to write extensively on those comics at some point, what they did well and their limitations, but I'm still very fond of them not exactly in a nostalgic way.

* these are beautiful.

* finally: I, too, love the post office and think it's a marvel. It also has value within the community because of the repetitive nature of its service. We should make a point of teaching people how to use it.
