Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* new Al Columbia site.

image* Laura Sneddon talks to Peter Hogan.

* Chris Sims on The Long Journey. Dominic Umile on The March. Bob Temuka on Grendel. Sean Gaffney on The Twin Knights. Sarah Horrocks on Anita Live Vol. 1. Rob Clough on Little Fish. Todd Klein on Astro City #1, Swamp Thing #21, Green Lantern: New Guardians #20, Green Lantern #21 and BPRD: 1947.

* hard not to like this Batman visual.

* Sean Collins talks about one of the odder comics-entry points of the 1980s and 1990s, trading cards, and then walks us through a hero history for Wolverine. The latter is fun to see if only that what I remember as incremental builds in his character over several years is done by like slide #3.

* very excited for the Billy Ireland people moving their library to their new digs this summer, and I'm loving the occasional photos.

* not comics: this Lightning Bolt song is actually tuneful and catchy.

image* Carl Barks profiled, with plenty of art.

* wow, look at this pretty little stack of "Golden Age" comic books. I think those are beautiful objects, and I never used to think that.

* Don Simpson talks about doing studies of Frank Santoro's work, without knowing it was Frank Santoro's work.

* here's a finished piece and its pencil-art rough from Sarah McIntyre.

* finally, Mike Lynch underlines the irony of a cartoon about exploited creators being exploited and notes a Jeffrey Koterba process post.
