Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Patrick Hess on The Dark Knight Returns. Richard Bruton on Home Is Where The Internet Is. Rob Clough on various mini-comics. Sean Gaffney on Ranma 1/2 Vols. 3-4. Kelly Thompson on All-New X-Men #27. Grant Goggans on Indigo Prime: Perfect Day. J. Caleb Mozzocco on a bunch of different comics available on New Comics Day. Joshuaon on This One Summer. Jason Sacks and Keith Silva on both iterations of Omega The Unknown. Eric Palicki on C.O.W.L. #1.

* not comics: I don't have much to say on this site about reaction within the comics industry about the murders in Santa Barbara over the weekend, but there was some compelling writing on the matter from people like Jess Fink and Kate Leth.

* here's a bunch of Virgil Partch material that didn't make it into the recent Fantagraphics' efforts. Speaking of older cartoons, I love the color on these.

* Carl Antonowicz talks to Katherine Roy. Team Inkstuds talks to Ron Rege Jr. Grace Bello profiles Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki. Paul Montgomery talks to Jordie Bellaire. Matt Nestor profiles Box Brown.

* Big Fun got up to nine volumes?

* Kelly Thompson on the Art Of Silencing.

* Paul Morton writes about the use of Holocaust imagery and narratives in the X-Men comic books. It's an idiosyncratic take on the subject matter, and maybe its greatest virtue is how it doesn't conform to any conventional wisdom of which I'm aware.

* Marc Bernardin writes about how to process certain kinds of editing and revisions.

* Roman Muradov writes about a recent freelance assignment.

* one of the fun things about the social media age if you're interested in an art form like comics is to better enjoy the makers of that art as people; I quite liked this post from the writer James Vance on a milestone in his family.

* here's a report on Line Hoven at the British Library. I like Paul Gravett's outfit.

* finally, what a great picture. Cartoonists hanging around together was not invented at SPX.
