Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* not comics: Forrest Ackerman probably isn't someone who registers with younger comics fans for reasons of categorical sorting. When comics was considered part of Nostalgia Culture, there was a lot more overlap between comics fans and fans of science fiction movie and old-timey radio shows. He died in 2008 and is not remembered fondly by some people speaking up.

* not comics: I find TV critic Alan Sepinwall almost ruthlessly devoid of specific insight, but I like the broad subject of how older material relates to newer material presented here, particularly at a point in comics where the great comics of this moment don't seem markedly better than the comics of 15, 20, 25 years ago as those comics seemed to the bulk of what was being produced 15-25 years before than that.

* finally: this is an absolutely bad thing, all of it.
