Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Bob Temuka on The Adventures Of Captain Sunshine. Jeffrey O. Gustafson on Ark and Pluto. Rob Kirby on a bunch of new comics. Gabe Roth on Omega The Unknown. Rob Clough on Graphic Classics: Mark Twain. Sean T. Collins on Ant Comic. Sean Gaffney on Welcome To The Erotic Bookstore Vol. 1. J. Caleb Mozzocco on various picture-books. Henry Chamberlain on The Activity. Johanna Draper Carlson on 21st Century Boys Vol. 2. Colm Creamer on Wolverine And Jubilee.

* here's a much linked-to article on the digital comics reading habits of young people, and why they're not exactly up to speed with what was imagined for that market at one point.

* Andy Burns talks to Joe Keatinge. Bill Baker talks to Eric R. Gignac. Chris Mautner talks to Rina Ayuyang.

* not comics: Glen Weldon reviews a recent staging of the Superman musical. I'm sort of obsessed with 1960s musicals, because there were so damn many of them, and I have to say that I never thought much of this one. Then again, neither did Weldon until he saw it on its feet.

* Eduardo Risso draws a Blade Runner-related commission.

* not sure I was totally aware that Columbia scored the Harvey Pekar scripts. That's an interesting thing to have in academia's hands.

* I had totally forgotten that Matt Groening scored a Spin cover before having done The Simpsons -- at least as its own TV show.

* finally, Lisa Hanawalt explains her process.
