Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Sean Gaffney on Haganai: I Don't Have Many Friends Vol. 7.

* not comics: Charles CW Cooke at National Review takes on geek culture and the geek cultural archetype. I can't imagine there's a lot in there I'd find interesting or useful, but there is is if you want to buy it.

* not comics: some of my high school friends are passing this article around on Facebook. I think art matters, and I think it matters in these ways and I think it matters in negative ways, too.

* finally, educator Charles Hatfield posts information about his forthcoming comics course. There's a lot that's interesting there, including the syllabus and Hatfield's suggestion to work with a local comics store to obtain the books; they'll provide a discount. I don't know what buying books is like now, but I liked buying books on campus because it was easiest to have one bill at the end of the year. I have to imagine the Internet has nuked that system, though.
