Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* I'm coming late to this basically non-story about a clown wandering the streets that Alan Moore calls home, but the whole thing amused me. That's a hell of a headline. That's also a scary picture there at the bottom, or at least I found it so.

image* Sean Gaffney on Dorohedoro Vol. 10. Johanna Draper Carlson on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Vols. 1-2. Andy Oliver on The Megatherium Club Volume One: The Great Ape and And Then Emily Was Gone. Rob Clough on some autobiographical minis. Sean Gaffney on Attack On Titan Vol. 7. Jonah Lang on Superior Spider-Man #18. Evan Henry on Kiss Me, Satan #1.

* J. Caleb Mozzocco talks to Chris Duffy. Will Scott profiles Meredith Gran.

* not comics: I'll take your jeans commercial and raise you two focusing on booze.

* Tom Bondurant walks through recent DC editorial moves by casting them in terms of the company's character-development responsibilities. I think this is worth noting, although in the specific of the Batwoman character it seems like everyone is cognizant of what DC might be doing in setting a specific creative edict away from having the character marry, they just don't agree with it. I think that creative team had done enough with that minor character that favoring some sort of editorial plan over anything they want to do seems silly. Then again, I don't run a comic book company except over coffee, in my head.

* finally, next.
