Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* there are a few more days for you to participate in the Society Of Illustrators annual program for comics.

image* Chris Randle talks to Anne Ishii.

* for people just five years younger than me, this is what the X-Men looked like.

* here's an audio version of the play King Kirby, about Jack Kirby, written by Crystal Skillman and Fred Van Lente. That went up around Christmas and I totally missed it.

* John Romita Sr. draws the Count Of Monte Cristo. Jack Kirby draws Captain America and Dave Stevens inks him.

* the fine Seattle location Comics Dungeon has a list up of its top 100 comics for 2014. That's really interesting to see what sells at a single-store level. The caveat here would be that they don't seem to have any sort of client base for alt-/art trades. That's not a criticism, just something to keep in mind when you look at the chart. All stores are different.

* finally, Matthew Nolan walks us through a higher-end kickstarter effort and track downs where the money went. That's a great service.
