Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Greg Hunter on Clue: Candlestick #1. Sean Witzke on Thumbs #1.

* Ryan Place visits the MSU comic book archives and checks in with Randy Scott.

* DD Degg takes an informed walk through various reactions to the Times' decision to rid all editions of editorial cartoonists because of blowback from a freelancer's cartoon that made it into their paper in a way that brought with it some expressed regret. I firmly believe in comics as a powerful journalistic tool, I just wish there were more rigorous, exciting examples to toss out there. There also some statements that seem to want to re-argue Hebdo, or at least nod in the direction of its aftermath's affront to comics' received wisdom, if only from a no-respect angle. This, of course, is a terrible idea.

* finally: wow. That Patrick Dean is making art like this despite his recent ALS-related physical decline is awesome and inspiring. I hope it got a fine bid.
