Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* love will tear us apart again
* David Betancourt profiles John Romita, Jr.
Laura Hudson profiles Ed Brubaker and Velvet
. Melissa Jeltsen talks to Gabrielle Bell
. Andy Yates talks to Lauren Weinstein
* I'm still enough of a fan to enjoy this kind of thing
* johanna Draper Carlson mentions in passing
something I hadn't considered: that it's gross when the authorship of creative elements linked to a corporate-owned character are kind of asserted as instances of corporate authorship. That's not her main point, but it's the one that interests me.
* there's no better, more consistent writer about comics right now than Ryan Holmberg
, whose work is a thrill.
* Sean Kleefeld suggests
that maybe not as many people are making money from comics as used to. I think that's a fair question to ask. I couldn't tell you the answer. I could live off of CR
, but it'd be tough. And I realize I'm extremely lucky. I think a stronger, more ethical infrastructure is the
crusade for the next half-decade.
* I don't like comic shops that slide from messy into gross or scary, but I think there are definitely joys to be had
in just about every kind of comics shop, not just the 50-60 out there into which I'd send my Mom.
* that's a nice Adrian Tomine on The New Yorker
. Apologies if I've done that one already, I had a hard time double-checking.
* Rob Clough on various comics
. Andy Oliver on Moose Kid Comics
. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Uncanny X-Force: Final Execution Book Two
* finally, there will be some comics-related art of interest
at the George Lucas museum in Chicago.
