Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Daryl Cagle welcomes jailed Palestinian cartoonist Mohammed Saba'aneh back to the not-jail world. That's actually the first confirmation that I've heard that the cartoonist was released -- the last thing I read was that he was about to be released. It's good to post things like that so that maybe the cartoonist would read them and know they were not forgotten while jailed.

* not comics: Michael Kupperman shelf porn.

* a cover theme game is a very good idea. I seem to remember either someone else doing this or the same people doing this a long time ago. Wait, I think it was Steven Grant in his old, long-running column. He did something like that.

* I don't recall longtime retailer and foundational comics blogger Mike Sterling doing a whole lot of just random commentary on new comics, but I'm happy to run a link to it when he does.

* Josie Campbell talks to Chris Roberson and Allison Baker.

* here's James Vance on the Comix Book project.

* very excited about Bully's Captain Tootsie month.

* J. Caleb Mozzocco writes about the tradition of killing off -- or "killing off," perhaps, too; I haven't read it -- characters in comic book "event" series in order to kick them off in style.

* finally, that very nice person Sonia Harris has a survey up about comics and its impact on relationships. If you have a few minutes and the topic interests you, that might be something you go and do.
