Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Sean Gaffney on One Piece Vol. 83. Tod Klein on Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye #10. Sarah Chihaya on Boundless. Hillary Brown on Palooka-Ville #23.

* there's always something to learn about the comics. One thing I learned this year is part of the Rawhide Kid concept is that he's wee.

* I somehow missed there was a new Charlie Hebdo controversy, this time on a cover-featured hurricane gag. Joe Raiola responds. That's an odd joke, and not much of a substantial one -- it's not too far away from shouting "Trump!" or "Fake News" as a gag-ender. Making jokes in close proximity to human suffering tends to be beyond any working satirist save for those touched by greatness, and I'm not sure that Hebdo has anyone on staff right now or in their current freelancer pool that's close to being able to pull something like that off.

* Robert Boyd read a bunch of things this summer, including comics.

* finally, another reminder I failed in life by not developing a correspondence relationship with Jason.
