Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Maus via roundtable.

* J. Caleb Mozzocco on "Night Of The Monster Men." John Seven on Lake Jehovah. Rob Clough on comics from Leela Corman and Anya Davidson. Todd Klein on Green Lanterns #5.

I'm sure it's the constant noise and approximation of physical proximity that social media brings, but that doesn't make it any less restful. In my ideal world there are no shows in the bulk of December, January and February, light shows in late May into June. One show in July, one show or no shows in August, and a light month in November.

* on becoming a comics writer.

* finally, here's how to turn some of that comic art into sweet, sweet, money-making gallery work.
