Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* I am always a bit wary of PR efforts being reported as news, but I would imagine that a tumblr devoted to a Marvel series with the profile that comes with their latest attempt at a Ms. Marvel character bears noting and watching. I'd love to see both superhero comics companies have more hits up and down their character rosters -- those comics are important to a lot of people.

* it's goblin week.

* graphic novel is dead.

* Tim O'Shea talks to Brendan McCarthy. Sarah Currin profiles T. Edward Bak. Team Comics Alternative talks to Isabel Greenberg.

* Bob Temuka writes about the idea of becoming "too old" for comics.

* Drew Moss draws Nick and Nora Charles (and Asta).

* there is very little in comics that's better than hearing about 'zine culture from 30 to 50 years ago. God bless people involved with comics in that specific and wonderful way.

* Jessica Lee on J.1137. Marykate Jasper on SHOOT First #4.

* on Saul Steinberg's hen.

* finally, here's a reasonably compelling and broadly-conceived list of anticipated books for 2014. It should be an interesting year, if only for the lack of generation one alternative-comics heavy hitters.
