Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Andy Oliver on Livestock. Charles Hatfield on From Lone Mountain, which I am in the midst of reading and enjoying greatly.

* this is an interesting news story I don't think will be a major one: the Chicago Tribune bought some twitter followers for their cartoonist Scott Stantis as a way -- one would imagine -- of speeding up the build of Stantis' social media presence. The problem is that this kind of move violates the paper's ethics policy. I'm almost tempted to say that I'm more delighted by any media organization having an ethics policy than I'm discouraged by anything that brought it to our attention.

* festivals extra: here's a show that's offering up a master class series from Tom Richmond; that looks like a nice opportunity for some budding caricaturists out there.

* finally: look at this fun Walter Simonson art, apparently the first time he drew the Jane Foster Thor or that great Mangog design.
