Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Michael Cavna digs deeper into that issue of Action Comics #1 that sold on eBay. His specific focus is on the decision to use eBay rather than one of the established auction houses. The seller's hunch that eBay would be competitive on a book with that kind of pedigree seems sound to me.

Paul O'Brien on an unassuming Marvel crossover. Henry Chamberlain on Phantoms Of The Louvre. Johanna Draper Carlson on Now Matter How I Look At It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular Vol. 4.

* I love that Evan Dorkin is just randomly posting color work on his blog now. That's a treat.

* don't know that I've ever seen this Frank Quitely drawing of Daredevil. Kate Beaton draws Red Sonja.

* Ash Brown discusses Masaichi Makaide, whose work when translated into Star*Reach was the first of its kind, and of course is now a sizable part of the North American comics market. Brown notes that it's not the first manga translated for any American audience, just for the average comics reader, which is crucial all by itself.

* Qiana Whitted takes on issues posed by the comics grid.

* Sean Gaffney takes us for a walk through Crunchroll Manga. That is the manga-oriented digital comics service still in its relative infancy.

* finally, I'm not sure exactly what this is, but I'm fond of the Jiro Kuwata Batman comics and anything that works that same general visual territory.
