Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* missed it: USA Today stole Scott Bateman's map and was called on it; USA Today apologized.

image* Rob McMonigal on Battling Boy. Rob Clough on Black Is The Color. Adrielle Mitchell on Daytripper. Henry Chamberlain on The James Bond Omnibus Vol. 5. Johanna Draper Carlson on Takasugi-San's Obento Book Vol. 1.

* I missed celebrating Peter Arno's birthday, which is only okay if you're in a bar somewhere in a tuxedo.

* not comics: there is never a bad time to look at a Noel Sickles illustration or two.

* I run that one panel of Wolverine popping his claws in the sewers beneath the Hellfire Club that a few people have asked after other, similarly iconic 1970s and 1980s panel. This Miracleman slaughter spread is one that comes to mind, as is the page where Animal Man sees the reader and the one where Cerebus cries on his sword after Jaka has returned it to him.

* Sean Kleefeld on diversity in comics.

* don't know that I've ever seen this Robert Crumb illustration of Marilyn Monroe.

* check out this lovely Tezuka-drawn action page.

* finally, at first I thought these were convention table arrangements, but they're really panels-on-page. At least now I know why I like staring at convention table arrangements.
