Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* AJ Frost on Archie Meets The Ramones #1. Todd Klein on The Flash #5. Alex Hoffman on Hotel Rompo.

* a few of you have written in to note in a variety of ways narrowing down into one truth: with Duck Edwing's passing noted above, MAD has in 2016 lost key players representing 150 years of service to the publication. That's rough. What a year.

* as Zunar's situation deteriorates into standard, recurring harassment of all activities no matter how benign, those of us on the outside of that debacle looking in have to make strong, declarative demands in terms of the sweeping ugliness of what's going on. I've been watching this story for years and years and it just seems like a one-sided dick measuring contest at this point, with accelerated bullshit being the main result. It might get so much worse.

* I don't have the time during the holiday season to properly vet this comics-related contest, but I thought I'd bring it to your attention with that caveat.

* finally, James Kaplan picks some favorites. I'm not likely to catch the other posts here, so maybe bookmark according to the writer's name if you like this one.
