Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Julia Wertz folds some comics into one of her urban exploration posts; I think that's the first time she's done that. If it's not the first time, it's rare enough to be noticeable.

image* I know almost nothing about the cartoonist Nathan Fox and the Scholastic Editor Sheila Keenan except that Fox is an interesting artist and Keenan is a key player at Scholastic. They made a comic together, and my pal Gil Roth interviewed them when I was busy being super, super, super sick.

* not comics: comics people seem to be enjoying the forthcoming Captain America movie. It looks fun.

* some nice person with the Toucan blog talks to Cliff Chiang. Leo Johnson talks to Nathan Edmondson and Alison Sampson. David Betancourt talks to Mike Mignola.

* Astrid Lindgren is going to be the face of the 20-krona Swedish banknote.

* not sure how this Brahm Revel interview got into my bookmarks, but there you go.

* not comics: David Lasky has a print for sale featuring Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin.

* Jared Gardner on a bunch of different comics. Meagan Damore on Daredevil #1. Tyler Coates on the comics of Joan Cornella.

* I totally missed this post about some fun-looking Hellboy-related comics.

* finally, here's a nice, lengthy report about Professor William H. Foster III's recent presentation at the New York Comics Symposium on the subject of black underground cartoonists.
