Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* James Lileks on Chris Ware and Building Stories. Johanna Draper Carlson on various comics.

* so I guess Marvel blew up Perth and Regina. I was never sure why they did things like that, but I have a brother who only reads comic books with certain characters in it (Black Bolt, The Badger, Namor) and he was taken with that Sub-Mariner mini-series from a few years back that started off with the destruction of a small town. So maybe if you're not immersed in this stuff that can be an affecting thing.

* it's the holiday season and the cartoonists are eating together.

* Gil Roth talks to Scott Hoffman. Dan Casey talks to Brian Wood.

* not comics: this Matt Fraction post on John Lennon has been linked-to in a number of places; it's a fun post.

* finally, and speaking of people eating together, this reminiscence of a 30th Anniversary Dinner for the Spider-Man character is basically a ratatouille of sweet, sad and slightly corny comics-culture things. I liked reading it.
