Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* The Comics Journal has trimmings from a Carmine Infantino interview they did while I was there in the mid-1990s, that he asked be held until after his passing. They also have a Greg Stump news story featuring the late Silver Age icon. One of the cool things about doing a TCJ interview is that it made it easy for a while to work with figures we just interviewed on news stories.

image* Kelly Thompson on Birds Of Prey #18. Jeffrey O. Gustafson on Pluto Vol. 4, Julio's Day and Indestructible Hulk #6. Chris Mautner looks at a bunch of comics.

* not comics: for some reason, this news of Adam Ant launching a tour in close proximity to Comic-Con International cracks me up. I would imagine, though, that you'll see a lot of similar attempts to draft behind comics-related events given how well they've been doing.

* Nat Gertler suggests that I could be totally wrong in asserting yesterday that the Foglios could have avoided a recent loss of rights to a bunch of prose books through a publisher's bankruptcy through better contract-making. I could definitely wrong -- I honestly don't know -- which makes this kind of thing even more disturbing although less that kind of disturbing where you can point at someone or a situation and vent some rage. I'll put it on the list of things I'll look into at some point, but let's assume for the moment that I screwed that one up until I know more.

* Bill Baker talks to Nimue Brown and Tom Brown. Tim O'Shea talks to Michael Kaluta.

* finally, just to give this random news offering a little symmetry, I enjoyed this post from Mark Evanier on Carmine Infantino.
