Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Gene Phillips proposes to go through every Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four comic. That sounds like that would be fun to do. I think those are the best superhero comics.

* Blake Bell and Dr. Michael Vassallo are in the midst of creating a series of 10 short videos in support of their new book about the secret history of Marvel Comics.

* I wanted to point out this series of blog posts -- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9; general category here -- featuring "tips" for APE before we got so close to APE that the people that could use them were already on site and away from their computers. I've never done that show -- I was always too broke back in the Seattle days and these days it is for some odd reason extra-difficult to travel to San Francisco from where I am. I'll get there soon.

* so I'm sorting my comics right now and I'm just beginning to wrap my mind around how many comics come out right now. Holy crap. And then today the new Jim Woodring showed up, and a sequel to that Scott C. book and like ten mini-comics, five or which look particularly interesting. We're all doomed. Well, I am, anyway. All apologies for not being as on top of reviews as I should be.

* finally, the Wall Street Journal covers this week's New York Comic Con, although I'm not a subscriber and can't see the article. Looks like one of those "it's nearly as big as Comic-Con International" stories. I would imagine that one of these cons is going to pass Comic-Con International at some point because Comic-Con International is limited by the facility to a certain number of people. It does make me wonder how many Comic-Con could claim right now if there were no limitations on tickets.
