Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* not comics: this Ta-Nehisi Coates piece is going to get around a lot because of its focus on Kanye West, but the undercurrent of it being about localized fame and the role that mystery has in fame should be interesting to a lot of comics folk.

* Rob Clough interviews John Porcellino.

* not comics: The Ringer engages with the best superhero movies. It's a pretty standard list. Two things worth noting: not a lot of surprises, and a methodology that includes box office and general critical reception. I think a lot more lists will try to use formulas that way, including comics-focused ones.

* finally: I like this cover's insistence on the alter-ego being the co-star. When I was a kid many of the other kids referred to comic book characters from Marvel by their alter-ego names. I don't know if that's significant or not. Probably not.
