Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* this comic
featuring Bill Watterson's words drawn in a close approximation of his style is making its way through the image-driven social networking world like a bag of White Castle. I enjoyed it, though, and it's interesting advice -- the material at the bottom is fairly complete if you're looking to know more about the comic and its other creator.
* Kelly Thompson on Uncanny X-Men #10
. Johanna Draper Carlson on Autobiographical Conversations
. J. Caleb Mozzocco on various comic books
. Grant Goggans on more of those Legion Of Super-Heroes comics
. Asher J. Klassen on Collider #1
. James Romberger on a bunch of different comics
* disposable is not a dirty word
. Did someone say it is?
* Mary Beth Quirk talks to Lisa Hanawalt
. David Betancourt talks to Jeff Lemire and Geoff Johns
* I don't stop by the Library Of American Comics blog as much as I should: right now there's a correction from a recent Superman volume
-- cool strip -- and a couple of pieces of good-looking Alex Toth animation art
* one occasional writer-about-comics' comics feed
* Mike Sterling writes about comic books
whose back-issue price, at one point high, became not very high at all. The first comic book I can remember this happening to was Howard The Duck
, although I was young enough that it probably didn't drop a lot. Still, it was remarkable to me as a kid because I had been trained to think that comics would always go up in price forever
* Josh Kopin on an aspect of Gilbert Hernandez's work
* I love looking at these comics starring Krypto The Super-Dog
. It would be nice if in a matter-of-fact way the comic book marketplace allowed for stuff like this, and not in a "tee-hee, look at us making kids comics!" way.
* totally missed this Bill Holman material
* finally, Chris Marshall presents
a 30-day comics-related challenge that seems like something just about anyone could do.
