Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Mike Dawson talks to Sarah Glidden about Joe Sacco's mighty Footnotes In Gaza.

* Andy Oliver on Single Black Glove. John Kane on various comics. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Benson's Cuckoos. Sarah Horrocks on Mazeworld. Don MacPherson on Chicacabra and DC's latest shot at the Forever People.

* hooray for blowjobs.

* Gerry Giovinco found a fresh angle in disparaging the incoherence of the conservative critique of comics offered up by writer Chuck Dixon and designer/artist Paul Rivoche in promoting a new book: both men got at least a part of their start in 1980s independent comics, where making work in defiance of the Comics Code was an ingrained part of that culture. It's sort of interesting that we've spent any time on these thoughts given how poorly conceived they are; then again, it apes a significant and also largely muddy national debate in some ways, so that could be part of it.

* finally, I could be bribed like this, but with Wonder Tot.
