Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Zainab Akhtar Nathan Wilson on Graphic Ink. That is one odd cover-image choice. Chris Sims on Station 38. Abhay Khosla on a big pile of old comics. Tom Bondurant on Superman #32. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Super Secret Crisis War #1. Jordan Speer on QCHQ. Rob Clough on War Of Streets And Houses. Sean T. Collins on Sorry Kid. John Seven on Truth Is Fragmentary.

* on physics-related comics.

* a bunch of not comics: 1) Here's the case for Irma Vep as a superhero movie. Maybe people should just not do this. 3) I'm not a fan of these cartoons or of nostalgic commercials using minor pop culture elements (yes, that's enough of a thing I can have an opinion on it), but if you're going to do it, go all in. 4) Dan Nadel talks to Brian Chippendale about his music.

* hail to the King.

* I'm nerdy enough to have owned all of the original X-Men comics, but I never thought of Magneto's face reveal as a big moment.

* Albert Ching talks to Gerard Way. Matt O'Keefe talks to Jim Zub.

* finally, here's a short piece on the role of bullying in geek subcultures. I'm not sure there's a lot of clarity in that piece -- it was hard for me to sort out its main points -- and that precede full engagement with their content, but it's always healthy to be negotiating that material. Comics is responsible for an industry, a fan and an event culture, which is a lot.
