Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* John Seven on The Interview. Todd Klein on Hal Jordan And The GL Corps #12. Alex Hoffman on The Fever Closing. Henry Chamberlain on Not My Small Diary #9. Ginnis Tonik on What Parsifal Saw. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Injustice 2 #1.

* Sean Edgar talks to Tom King and Mitch Gerads. Kim Jooha talks to Chris Butcher.

* here's a nicely-conceived article on women working in mainstream comics to great effect stretching back to the 1950s. This is a needed corrective to a floated notion that comics was woman-free until relatively recently, instead of women just being vastly underrepresented.

* North American editorial cartoonists tend to take Memorial Day as seriously as they do any major holiday not Christmas. Traditionally that's been because of the chance to do something non-partisan, but I think it's more generally just a chance to do a cartoon on something about which people feel strongly. Here's the growing Cagle directory of affiliated cartoons for this year on the holiday, and it's always interesting to see how much or how little cartoonists do with a single subject.

* finally, Bob Temuka shares his state of comics 2017.
