Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* Henry Chamberlain on COPRA #4
. Johanna Draper Carlson on A Parent's Guide To The Best Kids Comics
's Glenn Walker on Marvel introducing elements of its 1980s "New Universe" into its various titles now. I thought it was inevitable that they do this, but I thought they might go sudden appearance rather than slow ramp-up.
* the day they forgot to print the comics
* Tom Bondurant writes about
Jerry Ordway's Internet posting last week about not getting new comics work. I've had some people e-mail me, because I've written in the past about the limited number of years that people in comics may work or may be expected to work. I think this one was different in that Ordway seems like one of those professionals that used to get work for a really long time
, much longer than if he's no longer to get new comics work of the mainstream variety as of now. It's also a sign that people don't really understand why DC editorial is making some of the decisions it's making, and second-guessing editorial decision is a big part of following those companies closely.
* hooray for Mario Hernandez
* you have only a couple of days to get in on this project
by Roman Muradov.
* not comics: go, Coach Todd
* Chris Mautner profiles
a local comic art collector.
* so I guess Disney has no plans
to move forward with 2D hand-drawn feature-length animation. I can't say as I'm crushed about this, but I'm not a fan of traditional animation. A lot of my peers see comics as an extension or as something that extends into that art form a lot more than I do.
* that time Colleen Doran worked on Lynn Johnston's art
* JP Fallavollita talks to Andy Diggle
. Andy Burns talks to Fred Van Lente
. Dylan Horrocks profiles Alan Moore
* Deb Aoki posted a great photo of Shigeru Mizuki
, in front of his picture morgue.
* not comics: here
's a short essay/rant from Sean T. Collins about the lyrical and unexplained in fantasy, using the 1980s fantasy films as a springboard because of their inability to get across the detail involved in Tolkien-style world building.
* finally, I can't remember if I linked to this review
of a recent John Cuneo show, but even if I did, it's worth mentioning again
