Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* this is the first serious profile of the Indian comics industry I can remember seeing, especially in terms of the estimates involved.

image* Evan Dorkin draws and writes about the design work on the Marvel super-villain Ultron 5, a character I believe was created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema.

* my apologies if I double-up on some links this week, but I"m working from some link-lists I made when I wasn't able to access the site. At any rate, here's a piece on Ted White. John Siuntres talks to John Romita Jr. Victor Maas profiles Ben Katchor.

* not comics: Charles Vess draws Hope Mirrlees. Jim Blanchard draws in close-up. Chris Samnee draws The Penguin.

* not comics: let's see Kupperman do this.

* love for Chris Claremont and the impact his focus on female characters during his long run on the various X-Men books was eye-opening and even somewhat industry-changing within that specific realm for comics.

* not comics: these images are fun; sounds like a fun show.

* not comics: I'm not sure if there's a direct relationship to comics, but Donald Richie passed away and his story will be familiar to a lot of North American comics fans that fell in love with another culture in part because of its art.

* finally, a podcast review of So Buttons.
