Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* the Glyph Comics Awards submissions deadline is hurtling towards us
at light speed.
* Lauren Davis on Satan's Soldier
. Ales Kot on West Coast Blues
. Jeff Lester on Dreadstar Omnibus Vol. 1
. Rob Clough on Big Fat Little Lit
. Michael Buntag on Adventure Time With Fionna And Cake #1
* the writer Warren Ellis takes a walk
through some of his favorite covers from the Planetary
series. The last one he spotlights is a really, really good one. Speaking of covers, I also like this one
* go, stare/soak in: Zadie Smith and Chris Ware
* I never buy original comics art, but I bought a page from Jess Johnson's Etsy store sale of work from her mid-1990s Jeff Johnson period
. Johnson's pages from that period are really beautiful. I got one of the super-porno ones, in fact my favorite page of comics porno from the 1990s. Anyway, this stuff is super-cheap; consider this a "Comics By Request" extra as Johnson is currently unemployed.
* Sean Kleefeld talks about his comics-tribute map project
* I like this Steve Epting drawing of Doctor Strange
* some anonymous person talks to Chris Ryall
* finally, Alec Longstreth won't be going to Angouleme this year -- for the best reason imaginable
, but also for a slightly scary one, timing-wise. All best wishes to that couple moving forward.
