Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* there's a new place to buy books and read about books and complain about the way people read and buy books. Here's the page that comes up on a graphic novel search. That's certainly an odd window into the comics medium.

image* RO Blechman remembers Maurice Sendak. Zainab talks to Sonny Liew.

* Jen Vaughn makes a good point that a created by designation would be nice, and you probably have room for one if you can list Alex Ross twice.

* Rob Clough on a bunch of minis. Sean Gaffney on Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Vol. 9. Grant Goggans on more of those Legion Of Super-Heroes comics. Colin Panetta on The Badger #25.

* it's difficult for a link-blog like this one to link to a column that takes on multiple subjects, so I don't expect I'll do a lot of linking to the "Crossing Borders" column, but I thought this one featuring Bastien Vives and Jeroen Janssen worth braving the clumsiness of presenting it here.

* a personal message from Spider-Man.

* Sean Kleefeld on indie comics marketing and broader racial issues.

* J. Caleb Mozzocco takes a costumed-focused look at a new videogame-related comic. I'm glad he did that, because I got that comic book in the mail and I had no idea what the hell was going on.

* Shannon Smith would like you to remember that it's just comics.

* this is pretty fascinating: Krista McCracken found some comics in a missionary publications called Indian Record.

* finally, Joost Swarte sings the blues.
