Random Comics News Story Round-Up
is your semi-frequent reminder to vote for this year's Eisner Hall Of Fame class, if you're eligible.
* Joseph Remnant reviews the film Rocky
* I hadn't seen this months-old Dan Murphy goodbye video
in a while, but it still made me laugh.
* Rich Barrett would like to equip you
with everything you need to understand the X-Men comics now. I'm still a little confused.
* I want to say I've already linked to the Deconstructing Comics
podcast interviews with Dan Jurgens
and Zander Cannon
, but maybe I haven't.
* not comics: I don't follow news on every single film with a comics tie-in that comes out, so it was handy to read this article
about non-sequel, non-remake, fantastic-genre efforts, which included a bunch of comics-related films in development about which I knew nothing. If you're like me, maybe it will be useful in the same way.
* James Bacon reports
from the Bryan Talbot exhibition in London. Sarah McIntyre reports
from a book fair in Bologna.
* Seattle resident Rob Salkowtiz breaks down
the Emerald City Comic Con as a series of ideas and trends to process. I don't necessarily agree with the assertion that it's a show that does really well with the arts-comics contingent of the small press -- I don't think Fantagraphics would consider exhibiting if it weren't their home town show, and big chunks of that community skip the show altogether -- although there's definitely a presence there because of the show's admirable big-tent qualities and emphasis on individual creators.
* the wonderful wardrobe of Alan Moore
* finally, David Mack draws David Bowie
