Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rob Clough on In-Between Days.

* not comics: this profile of Mitchell Hooks is fine but man, that first graph would be terrible and near-pointless even if it didn't get the decade wrong on Mad Men. Sean Edgar talks to Amber Benson and Sarah Kuhn. Hillary Brown talks to Mimi Pond.

* here's Ryan Holmberg on Yokoyama Yuichi and Audiovisual Abstraction in Comics. I cut and pasted that.

* staffers and prominent freelancers talk/write about the end of the print run for the Village Voice. Tom Tomorrow is in there. One thing I hadn't hear is they were about to experience a ramp up in union pressure.

* Heidi MacDonald picks at a financial report for the Wizard World convention business, which provides backstory to their recent moves into video and print. I think as long as the upside remains arguable and the losses remain negotiable, we could see Wizard in some form until someone rams a stake into its heart.

* finally: team Sequential Heart talks to Ben Hatke.
