Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Alex Hoffman has a few thoughts about Tom Gauld.

* Disney acquired a major portion of Fox in a $52 to $66 billion deal. It should be interesting from a media story perspective how that deal falls into place -- I would assume that most of what's left off is stuff where the companies duplicate themselves or some media endeavors that just don't fit Disney culture. This does mean that the X-Men and Fantastic Four properties will be available to the Marvel movie machine, which should extend the possibility of their long run at the box office. How much effect that has on the comic book side of things, I don't know. Despite claims to the contrary, both of those elements of the Marvel publishing line have been de-emphasized in significant ways over the last several years.

* finally: I am enjoying the "doofus" line of drawings at Jason's place.
