Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* SLG is seeking out former SLG-aligned creators for a special benefit book.

image* Bill Baker talks to Tom Kaczynski. Wendi Freeman talks to Evan Dorkin. Ed Piskor and Jim Rugg and Jasen Lex talk to Gary Groth.

* not comics: I'm not sure I knew that there was a documentary being made about Bill Watterson, so I'm grateful Greg Kelly sent in this heads-up. Kind of like with all these superhero and genre films about which there seems to be endless pre-release discussion I'm not as interested in the existence of these films as much as I am in seeing a good one, so I can usually wait to hear about them until they come out. A good film about Watterson? That would be nice. Let's hope.

* Martin Filler on Batman: Death By Design. Johanna Draper Carlson on Horror Comics In Black and White.

* Rob Clough presents a call for anthology entries.

image* I always like it when Todd Klein digs into the history of one of the long-running mainstream comic book logos, and his latest foray up the rainbow bridge and to all logos Thor-related is a welcome addition to his series of articles. There are three parts -- 1, 2, 3 -- and at least a couple of them provide links to some outside reading.

* GK Chesterton, cartoonist.

* I think at the age of 12 I would have had 50 heart attacks if I got to see Phil Noto making Marvel superhero pin-up art every few days.

* finally, Michael Oeming enthuses over Alex Toth.
