Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Grady Hendrix wrote in to say he's published longer interviews with Tom Richmond and John Ficarra than was needed for a recent Film Comment article about film parodies at MAD. You can find all of that here.

* not comics: is this the best comics t-shirt of the last 10 years? Is this the best comics t-shirt not the King-Cat t-shirt ever?

* Chris Arrant previews Youth In Decline.

* Hannah Means-Shannon talks to Matt Kindt.

* this is an odd question. The classic indie/mainstream dichotomy is completely beside the point with a lot of emerging creators and readers and becoming increasingly irrelevant to a not-inconsiderable number of the older ones -- I'm about as old as they come, and it didn't occur to me until I read that article to think of the Eisner nominations in that way and I'd been looking at the nominations sheet for about 24 hours with the express purpose of analyzing it.

* not comics: a future for immersive content?

* this development is completely weird to me, and I'm not sure why. Hopefully I can find a better angle by tomorrow's digital comics column, which is where this site covers on-line press.

* Naomi Fry talks to Geneviève Castrée. Michael Cavna talks to Ben Katchor. Kiel Phegley talks to Eric Stephenson.

* not comics: do they really need urging? Also, for what it's worth, Neil Gaiman and I agreed for years on leather jackets.

* finally, there's a fun article here from Charles Hatfield talking about the Eisner nominations process. It's pretty much what I've heard from other judges in the past, but not a lot of people have written about it.
