Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* it's sounds funny to say out loud, but a virtue of this list of top Monkeybrain books is that it doesn't include Bandette, which is so directly in the wheelhouse of most alt-comics fans it's been hard for some of them to process other choices. At least that's what I've been told 2-3 times.

* Todd Klein on Astro City #11. Johanna Draper Carlson on Lost And Found: An Amy Devlin Mystery. Ricardo Baptista on S.F.. Sean Gaffney on High School DxD Vol. 1. Nicholas Reid on Incomplete Works.

* Kelly Thompson expresses her disappointment in DC's "bombshell" cover promotion.

* very proud to be on this run-down of pro-Martian Manhunter comics professionals, even though mine was a joke tweet. Most of the superhero characters are super dumb, that's what fun about them.

* take a class with Shannon Wheeler.

* Dean Haspiel draws some Fantastic Four.

* the writer John Layman through Gene Ha makes the point that among the publishers that might engage with creator-driven, high-end, genre work, there are opportunities to work with a wider range of artists at Image than with the DC prestige lines.

* Colleen Frakes engages with the uniqe aspects of her childhood in a hybrid comics form.

* Lars Martinson suggests it may be cheaper to ink up an entire book than to use colored paper.

* a Ron Regé Jr. pin-up.

* this appreciation of Pete Morisi by Ken Parille over at The Comics Journal is a lot of fun. Pete Morisi in general is a lot of fun.

* finally, Guy Delisle on tattoos. Well, one tattoo.
