Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* that is an amazing number of books no matter how many volumes the One Piece series has run. Holy crud.

image* Benjamin Bailey on André The Giant. Alan Gardner on WuMo. Todd Klein on Green Lantern New Guardians Annual #2, Dark Horse Presents #27-28 and The Flash Annual #3. Rob Clough on various minis. Sean Gaffney on Soul Eater Vol. 20, Phantom Thief Jeanne Vol. 2 and Takasugi-San's Obento Vol. 2. Sean Rogers on three different comics. Rob McMonigal on Small Drawings.

* summer lists for comics in Los Angeles and New York. I think the New York one is a better list, by a not-insignificant margin.

* Sean Kleefeld muses on comics for the blind.

* Jordan Gray profiles Todd Clark (via). Jaye Watson profiles Jack Elrod (via). Vaneta Rogers talks to Charles Soule.

* it's a glorious world where Jim Woodring patches are available for purchase.

* I am very much taken with the Alex Toth Conan image used here.

* I have to imagine that a blog about a summer comics class from that most enthusiastic of comics educators Charles Hatfield will be fun, and I hope that future entries are as fully engaged as this first one. I have no idea what the hell I would teach anyone about comics, but I come from a psychological mindset that never proselytized on behalf of the medium other than writing about it in the places I feel appropriate writing about it.

* Bob Temuka writes about abusive Internet culture and what he thinks should be the general response strategy. Bonus points for the phrase "fools and fuckwits."

* Matt Emery profiles at length the comics shop Mark One on the occasion of its 25th anniversary. It looks like a solid, full-service shop of the kind one wishes were everywhere.

* finally, what do you charge for art?
