Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* I'm playing catch on a couple of things concerning DC's revamped royalty system before I make an engaged comment, but I wanted to note that the story rolled out from standard sources two days ago. Key elements as announced were stacking various formats in terms of levels required to trigger, standardizing payment across formats and folding in color-artists/colorists into the process.

image* Greg Hunter on Sex Criminals Vol. 1. Todd Klein on Echo: The Complete Edition. J. Caleb Mozzocco on various comics. Richard Bruton on The Bad Doctor and Largo Winch Vols. 13-14. Joe Gordon on Velvet Vol. 1. Jim Johnson on Batman #32.

* a couple of you sent along this link, about a cartoonist that worked on a local strip that's run for over 110 years. There is not a ton of local/regional flavor in strip comics, but that is certainly not case here.

* Rich Goldstein talks to Tim Seeley and Tom King. JK Parkin talks to Jim Zub and Steven Cummings.

* not comics: Barnes & Noble splits its businesses. There has to be some sort of applicable giant robot joke in terms of the Nook never quite getting over, but if there is, it escapes me.

* finally, English-language sites are less about the announced interruptions in service than the unannounced not showing up for work for a while.
