Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* I suppose this is the occasion for one of those lengthy, image-filled post about the history of the Bazooka Joe comics, and I might have time to do one of those soon, but for now let's just note his demise. I think that's a good run for an advertising campaign/element like that.

image* Dan Berry talks to Tom Harley. Some nice person at the Stumptown Coffee Roasters site profiles Tim Root. Nate Ballard talks to James Kochalka. Kiel Phegley talks to Robert Venditti. Alex Dueben talks to Dan Vado. Daniel Glendening talks to Scott Allie. Kiel Phegley (him again) talks to Axel Alonso. JK Parkin talks to Kurt Busiek. Jeff Tompkins talks to KAL.

* Jeff Trexler writes it's possible that Alan Moore could attempt to legally obtain the copyright on Watchmen; it all depends on the contract.

* not comics: congratulations to comics industry veteran/survivor Laura Hudson on her new gig.

* what's it like to take a comics class from Jim Medway? Now you know.

* not comics: here's an article from The Atlantic about an author starting an independent bookstore when her town didn't have one anymore.

* Rob Clough on Hotwire 2. Todd Klein on The Judas Coin. Don MacPherson on Masks #1. Sean Gaffney on The Hentai Prince And The Stony Cat Vol. 1. Johanna Draper Carlson on The Heart Of Thomas. J. Caleb Mozzocco on various comics.

* finally, this news story involving a homicide and a collectible was brought to my attention on Friday night. It's awful, and only tangentially comics, although the places where it's potentially about comics somehow make it much worse.
