Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* the great Frank Santoro is taking applications for his next correspondence course, to begin in January.

image* Andrew Weiss remembers Void Indigo. That is famously a repurposed Hawkman concept, and I always wondered if it was the first repurposed such concept to find life as an independent comics project. Probably not, but I still wonder.

* I guess those three ghosts finally visited Gary Groth.

* Seth Peagler on Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Adventure Time Vol. 1. Grant Goggans on Princess Knight Vol. 1. Sean Gaffney on Shoulder-A-Coffin Kuro, Vol. 3. Rob Clough on Little Things. Todd Klein on different sets of various DC comics.

* an entire podcast devoted to railing on people for typos is both my kind of podcast and the podcast I fear most.

* I'm pretty sure I put a more generic entry regarding the annual CCS funding drive into the gift guide, so it's here that you'll get a link for their new capital campaign comic, featuring the cartooning of Dakota McFadzean as inspired by the work of Jeff Kinney.

* while my primary interest in the latest wave of variant covers is the over-reliance on them by mainstream publishers in a way that might do damage to retailers, I am sort of generally interested in the audience for efforts like this one. Are they just completists?

* nice to hear that things are returning to (near) normal for Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer.

* finally, Johanna Draper Carlson runs a preview for Upside Down: A Vampire Tale.
