Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum has announced Ladies First an exhibit about innovative, top-notch comics making from women artists. Their initial line-up sounds great, and Rachel Miller and Caitlin McGurk are super-smart comics people with fine taste. I cant wait to see what they come up with, and a broad survey-style reckoning like this one in that area of comics-making is overdue.

* go, look: Barry Blitt on the recent Democratic Presidential candidate debates.

* Brian Hibbs talks to Sarah Graley. Fulya Ozerkan profiles Musa Kart.

* assembled extra: I can't imagine this is anything other than a relaunch of the on-line archives, but that's a nice indication of how much that cartoon is missed. And stranger things have happened.

* not comics: another cautionary tale of an author assuming a lucrative career was underway because of early success and it just didn't work out that way. You should read one such article once a year.

* finally: Chris Gavaller on Rat Time. Christine Ro on Wage Slaves. Mateo Estling on Mr. Fish: Comics From The Deep End.
