Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Josh Kopin on Inhumanity #1. Sean Gaffney on Takasugi-san's Obento Vol. 1. Grant Goggans on Chiggers. J. Caleb Mozzocco on a bunch of different comics. Henry Chamberlain on "Justin M. Damiano." Johanna Draper Carlson on Midnight Secretary Vol. 2-3. Richard Bruton on Hitsville UK #2 and Long John Silver #4.

* I did not know that R. Crumb once drew Frank Zappa, although I'm also wondering if maybe I should have known that.

* Bully catches that Mark Twain and Albert Einstein had a pre-Kupperman adventure with Captain America and Team America because comics is the greatest art form on any planet, ever.

* not comics: occasional comics critics Sean Witzke and Tucker Stone write about the year in good films. I have a hard time believing that #1 isn't like a really strong #9, but the only people who see fewer movies than I do these days are parents of newborns.

* Blutch, Blutch, Blutch.

* my Mom once told me that she bought every single comic book she saw as a kid that featured a wedding on the cover.

* Bob Temuka remembers a good birthday.

* Paul Gravett profiles Leo Baxendale. Kevin Cortez talks to Ed Piskor.

* this cartoon and these reactions are sort of amazing.

* finally, this is some real without-a-net work from RC Harvey.
