Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* this is your semi-frequent reminder to vote for this year's Eisner Hall Of Fame class, if you're eligible.

image* Johanna Draper Carlson on It's Only A Game and The Double Life Of Miranda Turner #3. Richard Bruton on The Bojeffries Saga. Zainab Akhtar on a bunch of different comics.

* I would imagine that the Homestuck creator does very well at comics shows in terms of attention.

* Patti Smith profiles Bruce Worden. Steve Morris talks to Jules Rivera. Milton Griepp talks to Jon Goldwater. Suzette Smith talks to Ezra Butt.

* Frank Santoro visited the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum in the course of a professional trip involving a pair of lectures last week before the place got all Watterson/Thompson crazy. He writes about what he experienced, saw and studied here. It's fun to read Santoro communicate the joy of getting his hands on that older material.

* not sure that I ever passed this nice summation of what happened to a banned Ultraman comic: there was a problematic reference to Allah.

* Brandon Graham suggests a future project for some enterprising publisher out there.

* someone sent me a link to this image, which is evocative. I'm not sure what I'm to do with it other than re-link it here.

* finally, Jillian Steinhauer takes one last look at the Art Spiegelman exhibit at the Jewish Museum.
