Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* the good folks at World War 3 Illustrated have put Magdy L Shaffee's first comic for the publication work up at their tumblr.

image* Sean Gaffney on Unico. Robert Kirby on some different comics. Sean Gaffney on Bunny Drop Vol. 8. Rob Clough on Windy Corner 2. Todd Klein on Resident Alien Vol. 1.

* I'm not exactly sure what this is, but I think it's a way to put in for a free comic book. You have to have a Goodreads account.

* I don't know that I've ever seen a Reid Fleming page up for sale on eBay.

* Drawn and Quarterly has some nice photos up from a recent Tom Gauld signing. Gauld is a really fun cartoonist, and I'm glad he's going to do San Diego this year. Or at least he's scheduled to do that one. I really liked the book.

* Regina-area media reacts to the "news" that they were done blown up in some Avengers comic.

* the comments at this Robot 6 post about the departure of the ComicsAlliance site are an interesting read. I was dismayed by a number of tweets that went right to the personal relationship one had with the site rather than the people involved -- I mean, I get it, but in many cases I thought professional peers would have a greater degree of sympathy than a snap-appraisal of the site's utility. I bet that was half of the people that get to write about comics for a full-time living.

* K. Sturgess talks to Darryl Cunningham. Steve Sunu talks to Sam Humphries. A bunch of people at C2E2 talk to Patton Oswalt.

* finally, we take Ben Katchor for granted.
