Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Joost Swarte explains his three blind mice to Francoise Mouly. If that was timed to go with MoCCA Festival, which I imagine it was, that's a great get for the festival.

image* one of the nice Gridlords people talks to Reid Psaltis. Kelton Sears profiles Team Intruder. Jonah Weiland talks to Evan Dorkin. Michael Cavna talks to Team Stripped. Paul Gravett profiles Knut Larsson. David Betancourt profiles Jon Goldwater.

* drawing as well as writing improves writing. This may be another reason why so many cartoonists are better at writing criticism than writers are.

* Gene Luen Yang's Boxers And Saints picks up another award, this time from the Commonwealth Club.

* always loved these kinds of panels when I was a kid.

* I was curious as to who in comics might have given money back during the Proposition 8 day -- for or against the ban on gay marriage. I came up with a few searching "comics." None of those four was for banning gay marriage, they all gave money against that ban. No one came up that I recognized on generic "artist" and "writer" searches; no one came up searching various companies.

* so I guess a Jim Woodring drawing of the Noah myth ended up in show related to the movie. Jim Woodring is the best.

* this list isn't very rigorous, but I'm not sure we want a rigorous list here.

* J. Caleb Mozzocco on The Glorkian Warrior Deliever A Pizza and Monsters & Titans: Battling Boy On Tour. Richard Bruton on Polina and Mulp. Colm Creamer on The Boxer. Patrick Hess on Captain America. Paul O'Brien on A+X #13-18. Johanna Draper Carlson on Angel And Faith Season 10 #1. Henry Chamberlain on How I Made The World #1. Tony Ez Esmond on Headspace #2.

* finally, David Brothers appreciates the small things.
