Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Hervé St. Louis takes a brief look at Medium as a potential webomics platform.

image* Team Comics Alternative talks to Alec Longstreth. Carol Hills profiles Arnon Avni. Anshuman Iddamsetty talks to Emily Carroll. Mike Romeon profiles Meredith Gran.

* not comics: I am still completely baffled that the idea of spoilers has infiltrated into the act of writing about art. I've never run one, and never will. When I was ten years old, I knew that when I read a review in the New Yorker (the only place I knew where people wrote about a movie for that many words), that I'd be reading about the movie. I don't understand why that doesn't apply now. That doesn't mean I think you should run around being a jerk about art you've seen and someone else hasn't -- at that same age we used to hold our breath so as not to talk about a movie when we walked past the line to get into the next showing. Why is this hard?

* Sean Gaffney on Black Rose Alice Vol. 1 and Kokoro Connect Vol. 1. Brian Nicholson on The Wrenchies. Kate Polak on Deogratias. Johanna Draper Carlson on In Clothes Called Fat. Kelly Thompson on Hexed #1. J. Caleb Mozzocco on a bunch of different comics. Jerry Smith on The Trial Of The Flash. Robert Boyd on a bunch of different comics.

* finally, for some reason I had this five-years-ago post about Tintin originals in my bookmarks folder. Fun post, though.
