Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Sean Gaffney on UQ Holder! Vol. 12.

* not comics: saw the latest Star Wars movie over the between-holidays break. It was a Star Wars movie. My only comics note is that they seem to be setting up a generational-shift theme, and it might behoove writers and critics to look at what Jack Kirby did with the Fourth World material in terms of that same kind of thing.

* assembled extra: congratulations to Dr. Michael Vassallo on his 50th column, this one featuring a Christmas story by the great Joe Maneely.

* a near-perfect John Byrne tweet for quickly touching all the John Byrne bases.

* not comics: Gil Roth sent along this piece on a teacher's experience with students forced to learn to read things they might not ideally want to read, and I think there's a lot here that informs the value that difficult comics may have.

* finally: Esther Inglis-Arkelly makes a list of comics that she felt were good but under the radar.
