Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* there are two more lengthy posts on Before Watchmen out there worth reading: one by David Brothers; one by Heidi MacDonald. Or you can go stare at this really cool-looking Mean Bitch Thrills cover by Spain Rodriguez.

image* Steven Heller talks to Daniel Clowes. Domingos Isabelinho profiles John Porcellino. Christopher Irving talks to Larry Hama.

* customs screwed us.

* not comics: hey, it's Comic Strip Tees, one of those sites that sells shirts in a seemingly bunch of weird and arbitrary ways that are probably pretty much a part of every t-shirt site now.

* John Kane on various comics. Andrew Shuping on Abe Sapien Vol. 2. Greg McElhatton on Popeye #1. J. Caleb Mozzocco on various comics. Bart Croonenborghs on The Making Of. Kim Deitch on Harvey Pekar's Cleveland.

* fun with costumes. I kid, but it's actually a good sign if people are drawing a new-ish costume like that.

* an adaptation of Duel? Okay. They should do that one with William Shatner riding motorcycles in Mexico next.

* Daryl Cagle notes that a cartoon is leading a well-received front-page feature at the Sioux City Journal. I have no idea why front-page illustrations and cartoons aren't more of a thing.

* finally, Mike Sterling tells a harrowing tale of slabbed comics and recently hot series no longer that way.
