Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Greg Hunter on A Western World.'

* Samanta Helou profiles Red Planet Books & Comics, an all-indigenous comics store.

* here is a big and broad profile of current graphic novel production from which many gems of interest may be sifted. Peggy Burns is among those interviewed in a sidebar.

* Diamond has created a pop-up program around spinner racks. That's one of those ideas that seems like a really good idea and yet I have no idea if it will work a tiny bit, a lot or not at all. I always bet on the house.

* finally, it's worth noting when Robert Kirkman signs a major outside-of-comics media deal because he and Mark Millar are the idealized creators in terms of shape and scope of their careers right now. Deals like these weaken the grip that the idea of a career in mainstream comics and the adoption of its best goals for creators has on the best genre-interested talent.
