Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* interviews with IDW's Ted Adams (1, 2, 3) are usually pretty good ones because his company is in exactly the right position to feel the ways the market is moving without being beholden to any existing narrative about that market.

image* Matt Seneca on Thor #160. Dash Shaw on Jeffrey Brown's cat comics. Tucker Stone and company on the comics and news of the day. Doug Zawisza on X-Men: Legacy #266. Rob Clough on Glamazonia. Todd Klein on Legion Of Super-Heroes #7 and Green Lantern: New Guardians #7. Sean Gaffney on The Flowers Of Evil Vol. 1. Johanna Draper Carlson on Young Miss Holmes Casebook Vols. 1-2. J. Caleb Mozzocco on The Lake Erie Monster #1.

* D+Q publishing brags on the retail arm of the company.

* Brian Hibbs dissects Free Comic Book Day.

* John Williams talks to Alison Bechdel. Peter Terzian talks to Alison Bechdel. Kiel Phegley talks to Axel Alonso. A sentient television program talks to Jay Faerber.

* I bet a few writers out there are going to see this movie release and cross an idea off of their to-do list.

* finally, Tim Hodler has the makings of a superior link-blogger. For instance, he gets at this Andrei Molotiu article on a 1965 Susan Sontag piece about comics, and I'm not sure a lot of us would have thought to make the time for that one, even though it's good.
