Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* John Seroff talks to Gabrielle Bell.

* Sarah McIntyre drags us behind the scenes of The Legend Of Kevin.

* here's another story of an artist being robbed while at a convention. It feels like there have been a lot of recent reports. It makes sense to me that there would be an increasing number of thefts. Economic times are tough in terms of people making enough money to get by in the fashion to which they believe they are entitled. We also have more cultural approval of self-determination that includes financial gain, which many use to justify exploitation or outright thievery. I bet every one of these robberies comes with a justification as to why they were done. Anyway, be careful out there. Also remember that a lot of venues are taped, and get on asking for that tape before it's erased.

* I can't remember if I linked to this article on Forbidden Planet or only tweeted it. That's what happens when you get old, kids.

* Michael Dooley profiles Anthony Bourdain's efforts in comics, which were ongoing right up until the time of his passing. I liked Bourdain as a prose writer post his initial bro-soaked works, and he had really good taste as a comics reader, so I'm confused by his comics output. There's not a single page reprinted in that article that doesn't bore me a bit.

* finally: there is a French-language version of Sir Alfred No. 3, and it is beautiful.
