Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Pamela Thomas will replace Rich Watson with the Glyph Awards, the program done every year in conjunction with the East Coast Black Age Of Comics Convention.

image* Chris Bennett on Hawkeye #3. Brian Nicholson on Leviathan and the latest from Ruppert and Mulot. Sean Gaffney on Bunny Drop Vol. 7. Sean Kleefeld on Comic-Con And The Business Of Pop Culture. Grant Goggans on more of those classic Legion Of Super-Heroes comics. J. Caleb Mozzocco on a bunch of different comics. Don MacPherson on Mankind: The Story Of All Of Us Vol. 1. Sterg Botzakis on The Country Nurse. Andy Hunsaker on Saga #7.

* a brief back-and-forth I was able to facilitate between Howard Cruse and Dean Mullaney had me re-reading this essay about Cruse's correspondences with professional cartoonists.

* Josh Ryan wrote in with this link to Al Columbia Big Numbers-related lettering. Thanks, Josh.

* not comics: I don't think I've ever seen this newspaper article on George Reeves until now. I like how forthright it is about the career difficulties the actor had, and where playing Superman fit into that. Also interesting in that he had a residuals deal, which I know wasn't always guaranteed even through the 1960s.

* Rob Clough profiles Paul Hornschemeier.

* here's a treat of the not-comics variety: the cartoonist Dylan Horrocks reviews the D&D history Playing At The World.

* finally, Charles Yoakum believes that Mort Weisinger cannot be redeemed.
