Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rob Clough on the comics of Roman Muradov. Luke Silva on How To Survive In The North. Matthias Wivel on Soft City.

* talking Cable. I didn't like the X-Men comics and was long gone when the future dudes with guns started showing up. I liked the Casey/Ladronn version that came a little later but still never warmed up to the character.

* I just sort of like this post.

* this discussion of plot implications and character-development plans coming out of the Marvel event series of the immediate past is probably closer to the comics than I can hope to understand, but it does underline that you can't really count on the aptness of whatever metaphor you're using to drive a superhero comic's success.

* it won't stop people from trying, though.

* finally, Dan Berry has some advice for those that wish to participate in the traditional February 1 Hourly Comics Day event.
