Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* this weekend is the last one
for the Seattle Rep's run on the well-received stage adaptaiton of Kavalier and Clay
. I would have liked to have seen that, and assume I will get the chance to see someone's shot at it at some point.
* Todd Klein on Frankenstein Alive, Alive #3
. Sean T. Collins on How To Be Happy
. Zainab Akhtar on Vile Decay
* this is a stretch as a Danish Cartoons Hangover update, but I wanted to mention this story
anyway. The on-line recruitment elements of the Colleen LaRose case have been utilized in this more recent case having nothing to do with the cartoons as a comparative, which makes me think that law enforcement officials consider Internet activity of a social nature a potential seedbed for illegal activity. I mean, they probably always did, but seeing "Jihad Jane" brandished as some sort of historical precedent as opposed to this collection of very regrettable moments in a sad person's life really drove that home for me.
* Tim O'Shea talks to Chris Roberson
and Eleanor Davis
. Steve Sunu talks to Jeff Lemire
* nothing I don't love about there being a comics library in St. Petersburg
* not comics: Ted Rall is right
-- on the general principle of oppositional journalism, anyway.
* finally, somehow I missed that the recent Spongebob
annual had a Fletcher Hanks riff going on in one of its short stories
, courtesy of Paul Karasik and man-of-1000-styles R. Sikoryak. I blame sucking at my job.
