Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* I'm saving this new Tommi Musturi interview
for a quarter-hour of uninterrupted office time. It looks really good.
* Peggy Burns lauds Highwater Books for the late comic company's sensitivity
. Over on his blog, the writer Kurt Busiek talks about encountering
that publisher's landmark Coober Skeber
#2, and even posts the pencils to Seth's cover.
* missed it: a profile of some of the best female cartoonists working right now
. The nice thing about an article such as that one is that it's a good thing
if you object, because that means there are more cartoonists than can easily fit on such a list. There's a part two coming up, but I barely found the part one and will probably miss it.
* Tucker Stone addresses the comics industry journalism question
* Daryl Cagle's advice for cartoonists.
* you can read some Melissa Mendes comics through this post
* I checked to see if Guy Delisle was going to comment, even just casually, on the naming of a North Korean leadership successor. He did
* I do a round-up every morning of things to go look at, so I know how hard it is to put together as impressive and cool-looking list of art links as Mike Baehr does here
, concentrating solely on Fantagraphics-related talent.
* I wish I had come up with the phrase "an excess of narrative concision
* everything's coming up Vanessa Davis
* Chris Sims picks the 10 oddest Jimmy Olsen moments
. The great thing about this subject is that you could randomly plug in one of about 100 different comics and come up with a great list every time. Quality and
quantity; that's our man Jim O.
* not comics: I hope this is performance art, because it's hard for me to imagine I share a planet with this big of an entitled douchebag
. My goodness.
* finally, this headline cracks me up
, but I can't imagine it's true. My eyeballs and anecdotal evidence actually suggests I am in the upper five percent of older people at comics shows, even in the comics-reading parts of that show, and I've got a few years to reach 65. Also, if this were true I'm pretty sure there would be an NCIS
comic by now.
