Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Kevin Melrose caught a report on a Manhattan Beach comic book shop that was burgled. You have to admire someone making a FCBD joke right after being robbed.

image* Greg Steele has posted a 2013 SPX jam comic. It has bears.

* Alex Dueben talks to Mimi Pond. David Betancourt talks to Brian Bendis. Michael Cavna profiles the great Ralph Steadman. Tim Young talks to Ted Rall. Chris Arrant talks to Marcos Martin. Albert Ching talks to Axel Alonso.

* my current desktop screen. Hail to the King.

* Rob McMonigal on Shaky Kane's Monster Truck. James Kaplan on Lumberjanes #1, The Bunker and Southern Bastards #1. Josh Kopin on various comics. Todd Klein on Green Lantern: New Guardians #29. Tom Bondurant on Batman Eternal. The Page 45 folks on a lot of different books. Paul Gravett on Sally Heathcote Suffragette.

* I'm coming pretty late to this column about the scroll function by Frank Santoro. Santoro looks how that way of looking at comics onscreen works and its potential effect on the act of reading comics. He stays positive. Like Santoro, I enjoy reading comics digitally, although I'm not very tied into the overt use of the various possiblities available to readers as much as I just like the convenience and lack of storage hassles.

* missed it: Kevin Huizenga posted a Frank King cartoon about conservation.

* finally, Chris Schweizer draws the Star Wars characters no one likes. One more here. I suppose someone likes those likes characters; every character is liked by someone.
