Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Sean Gaffney on Takane & Hana Vol. 1. Chris Ware on Philip Guston's Poor Richard cartoons.

* the only thing I shower with nostalgic envy more than my actual convention experiences before the age of 16 are the convention experiences that I never had because I wasn't quite old enough. Give me the Tardis and every adventure for an entire series is at a 1970s comics convention.

* I bet these Christian Ward prints are awfully nice.

* for some reason I decided I wanted to read Noah Van Sciver's comic about time-traveling to 1990s Seattle and see if I could figure out which day he visited the way some people did figuring out what day Ice Cube was rapping about in Today Was A Good Day. My hunch is June 24-25, 1993.

* Kylie Orba Lobell talks to Miriam Libicki.

* finally: there are some early CCI hotel rooms opened up for those with a badge already. Those tend to be hotel room outside the downtown core, but I've stayed in plenty of those and had a good time. I will water taxi to that show before I die.
