Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Paul Gravett provides a mini-survey of current cartoonists in the Middle East.

image* Sean T. Collins talks to Julia Gfrörer. Rob Clough on Rob Jackson. Ross Simonini talks to Jim Woodring. Gary Richards profiles Howard Cruse. Steve Sunu talks to Paul Tobin. Chris Arrant talks to Adam Hughes.

* for some reason, a post on the Internet about a comic book on a TV show takes me all the way back to 1994.

* Mike Sterling on re-evaluating comics series.

* Graeme McMillan giddily predicts the possible return of the Malibu Ultraverse.

* speaking of McMillan, his endorsement of David Brothers' essay on comics piracy takes a different tack than my post on the same piece yesterday. McMillan suggests that Brothers needs to be engaged not in terms of that post being a suitable response to the piracy issue but for the potency of the writer's take on the general, continuing viability of comics given that they're losing out to the tidal wave of other media out there.

* this isn't comics, but I love the headline.

* writer Ivan Brandon notes that Jack Kirby was one intense-looking baby.

* also not comics: still one of the best fight pairings. I wonder if the Avengers Vs. X-Men series Marvel is doing will come through on the physical choreography end. That's such an underrated thing with comics like those.

* Greg McElhatton on Blue. Jordan Hurder on Kramers Ergot Vol. 8. Josh Kopin on Prophet #21. Ben Morse identifies 30 comics he likes. JasonClyma on Bulletproof Coffin: Disinterred #1. George Marston on Secret Avengers #21.1. Richard Bruton on Yakari Vol. 9.

* finally, these are all the Jim Lee Batman comics.
