Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* I've heard nothing but nice things about the recently-concluded ECCC, although I'll keep my ears open and will cover anything newsworthy as a stand-alone. We're right in the middle of con season now, and it won't stop to even breathe for a couple of weeks until mid-May. Congrats to the organizers.

* speaking of con season, what better way to kick off MoCCA Festival week than with an anticipatory post by the usually reflective folks at Secret Acres. It's been a long winter.

image* Mina Keneko and Francoise Mouly on Ant Colony. Mike Sterling on Airlock #2-3. The Page 45 folks on a bunch of different comics. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Wolverine And The X-Men Vol. 6. Chris Sims on Andre The Giant: Life And Legend. Sean Gaffney on Soul Eater Vol. 19.

* love this Eddie Campbell drawing.

* I'm not certain why I have a set of ALA posters featuring the Avengers in my bookmarks folder, but here you go.

* Joshua Malbin and Alex Rothman talk to Tom Hart.

* look at this neat Saul Steinberg book cover.

* here's a crew of talented young people.

* this photo of Wally Wood is amazing both for itself and the fact that Wood was only 49 when it was taken.

* finally, there's a story here about a discovery of "sexy artwork" from the great Osamu Tezuka. Tezuka worked in a variety of styles and released a bunch of sexually-charged material as an actual maker of comics, and this article is really old-fashioned in its view of such work, but it's always nice to see more art from a master.
