Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* I am probably the last person to catch up to that fun Wired
piece on Vertigo Comics, but in case that's not me but you, here you go
* Richard Bruton on "California, Part Three
." Noah Berlatsky on 7 Miles A Second
. Sean T. Collins on Haunter
* my apologies to Carlos Nine for aging him a year recently via a birthday announcement. The artist just turned 69.
's a report on a graphic novels panel presentation at SXSW moderated by Calvin Reid.
* Alex Dueben talks to James Vance
. Paul Constant profiles Eroyn Franklin
* I don't think this
is the first time I've encountered an article on the origins of Alfred E. Neuman, but this article looks as well-researched and as fun as any of them and I look forward to digging into it.
* David Brothers digs into
Garth Ennis' work a bit.
* the Harveys nomination ballot is now open
. This used to be one of the great chores of being in comics, and as a result there were some years a long time ago when it was rumored one or two ballots separated the last person to get on the final ballot from the first five runners-up. It's easier now, but I imagine it's still worth doing the nominations ballot both in terms of how much relative influence you can have on this venerable awards program, and just being a supportive industry person generally.
* I like this quote of the day
* Dylan Horrocks draws George Herriman
. Roger Langridge recently visited
the Horrocks household.
* I can't imagine a post more fun to read than a post with photos of Seth originals in it
* finally, someone wrote in to remind me that the Emerald City Comicon actually streamed a bunch of their programming, including that Image Comics panel that I talked about in my ECCC report
. That's great that they're able to do that now. I'm not sure I can always find the time to watch all
of the panels from any show, but there is always one or two I miss so if they start showing up after the shows in a place I can catch them, that's swell. More importantly, panels are definitely a resource I hope someone will eventually archive.
