Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Johanna Draper Carlson looks over the Archie sales figures from 2013.

image* Anthony Meloro on Cosplayers. Shea Hennum on The Tulip Twins. Bart Croonenborghs on Banzai Battalion: Just Another Bug Hunt. Andy Oliver on Aranha. Tom Murphy on The Lizard Laughed. Frederik Hautain on Rai #1. Johanna Draper Carlson on Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: Donner Dinner Party and a bunch of manga. John Seven on Basewood. Lauren Davis on Titan.

* go, help: a Daniel Clowes Eightball original cover art mystery.

* Joshua Malbin and Alex Rothman talk to Josh Bayer. It's not really comics, but C. Edwards talks to Ralph Bakshi, and cartooning is discussed. Here's what Bakshi is working on. Steve Morris talks to Greg Pak.

* this looks interesting, if I'm understanding the article correctly. This sounds like a pair of retailers is trying a comic at a specific price point in their stores that is differen than the price it will bear in other stores. Makes sense, given the store-specific variant phenomenon.

* people sure seemed to like this Spider-Man costume infographic from several days ago.

* not comics: I would assume we're at the point with the director Bryan Singer where it will be hard to figure which cases brought against him are legitimate and which aren't, which is good because we shouldn't be doing that anyway.

* I have no idea why this Becky Cloonan digital comic link is in my bookmarks folder, but I imagine a lot of people would enjoy it at the price offered.

* finally, Will Brooker on the British Library exhibit.
