Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* good gravy, check out the explosion of comics coverage at the Guardian.

image* while I know about the Jewish elements of Superman's creation, I never stopped to consider that efforts since in comics and in the movies could be seen as anti-Semitic whitewashing of those elements.

* fact: checked.

* Denny Riccelli on Daddy Lightning. Doug Zawisza on Superman: Unchained #3.

* here's a think-piece on the future of British comics now that Clint has come and gone. Here is what the magazine looked like. Here is a breakdown of the content and a description of the basic approach. I think all models are worth trying, and I hope that people are honest about the efforts involved when doing their postmortem analyses.

* doesn't everybody do this? I guess not.... why not?

* The Comics Grid is seeking papers on Krazy Kat.

* Laura Sneddon talks to Grant Morrison. Daniel Glendening talks to Scott Allie and Michael Avon Oeming.

* this site has a tumblr attached to it, but it's not a very active or engaged one.

* not comics: Ande Parks suggests perspective.

* finally, David Lasky passed along this link where a public health dialogue-type project is doing comics about health care. I can't really understand what's going on there, and it doesn't look like it pays anything, but some of you might want to participate given the importance of the subject matter.
