Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* J. Caleb Mozzocco on a bunch of recent mainstream comic books. Todd Klein on The Royals #5. Sean Gaffney on Soul Eater Vol. 21 and Umineko: When They Cry Vol. 7.

* not comics: I did not know that Charles Schulz and now his estate sponsored/sponsors a hockey tournament. That's sort of fascinating.

* Alana Marie Burke profiles Antonio F. Branco. Brian Heater talks to Peter Kuper. Randi Belisomo profiles Roz Chast.

* this SDCC manga license round-up is worth reading to the point I'm happy to link of it removed from the context of con linkage.

* finally, Sean Kleefeld made a good catch here: he finds and discusses a Rob Salkowitz article on some event survey work from right before Comic-Con. There's a bunch of stuff in there, and I bet the stuff about gender parity gets pulled if it hasn't been already. I think the thing I find fascinating there is idea of how money is spent and how and why.
