Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* the kind folks at Fantagraphics could use your Nancy-related help.

image* Matt Derman digs into Batman: Year One by contrasting and comparing it with the immediate follow-up Batman: Year Two. Paul O'Brien on Uncanny X-Men #17. Richard Bruton on Numbercruncher and a pair of mini-comics from Poland. Kelly Thompson on New Warriors #1. Alec Berry on Ms. Marvel #1.

* Sean Kleefeld notes how it can be really easy to make rash assumptions based on one's knowledge of and comfort with comics history.

* J. Caleb Mozzocco delves into one of those "list specials," this time about important fictional characters. If I'm reading him correctly, four comics characters made the list: Superman, Batman and Charlie Brown/Lucy Van Pelt as a couple.

* not comics: Henry Chamberlain endorses a crowd-funder for a movie about Bill Finger.

* I'm glad to see people testifying as to the contributions of Bhob Stewart. I've been talking to people about Bhob and one thing that keeps coming up is how familliar his range of interests and even array of things he did related to comics are familiar to right now, and how odd they might have been back in the '60s and '70s.

* David Brothers talks to Jay Potts.

* not comics: nice gig for Tom Neely doing album art for Green Day.

* finally, Robert Hunter writes about the potential of comics as civil rights effort bibles.
