Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* congratulations to Steven Scott on being named Director Of Publicity And Marketing at Archie. That position came open when Alex Segura returned to DC Comics.

image* Cory Doctorow on Spacehawk. Timothy Callahan on a bunch of different comics. Zainab on The Cavalier Mr. Thompson. Rob Clough on a pair of Juliacks comics. Craig Fischer on a variety of comics and ideas swirling around comics. Shannon Smith on The Invisibles Vol. 1 #13. Paul O'Brien on a bunch of different comics. Bart Croonenborghs on Rork. Johanna Draper Carlon on Polterguys Vol. 1 and New York Drawings. Rob Clough on Fantasy Classics. Ng Suat Tong on The Crackle Of The Frost. Sean Gaffney reviews the rare manga I've actually heard of. Sean Kleefeld on Sam's Strip. Grant Goggans on Barbara.

* not comics: here are all of Thom Zahler's illustrations for Cleveland Scene.

* it's always fun to spend some time with Jog, Chris Mautner, Matt Seneca and Tucker Stone as they talk about comics and related matters. I don't really have a way of spotlighting individual episodes of more general comics podcasts on this site, so please if you like something subscribe/bookmark/whatever.

* the Deconstructing Comics program deconstructs John Porcellino. Jason P. Woodbury talks to Nat Gertler. Alex Fitch talks to Aline and Robert Crumb. Tim O'Shea talks to Jeff Parker. Bob Temuka profiles Richard Corben.

* go, look: an Ellen Forney comic in Glamour.

* David Brothers is thinking about gutters.

* this is a nice set of photos over at PictureBox, from various November events.

* not comics: it should be fun to watch as reviewers take a second look at the howling vortex of weirdness that was last summer's Batman movie.

* Sean T. Collins would like you to look at all of his 2012 comics. Collins withdrew from working on writing-about-comics for one of the major group blogs, but it hasn't stopped him from getting out there with work of his own. He has an interesting set of collaborators, too. The Hottest Chick In The Game was probably the one that was most widely-read, I'm guessing.

* finally, Henry loves grilled cheese and Joe Keatinge loves Henry.
