Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* here's a post from Kathleen David about how friends and fans concerned with her husband Peter David's stroke can lend a hand.

image* Jeffrey O. Gustafson picks the best comics of the year just past. Don MacPherson continues his own look at 2012, grouping by grouping. John Kane on 2012.

* not comics: I enjoyed this drawing post of different cartoon plant strategies.

* animation and industry veteran Scott Shaw! criticizes the Adventure Time books as a publishing endeavor.

* I did not know this.

* fake drawing is acceptable.

* Rob Clough on a couple of comics-journalism projects. Sean Gaffney on Dengeki Daisy Vol. 11. Sean Kleefeld on Venus Daedalus One. Grant Goggans on a bunch of Legion Of Super-Heroes comics. Sean T. Collins on My Friend Dahmer. J. Caleb Mozzocco on various comic books.

* hey, Best Jokes is back.

* a site acting as a PR clearinghouse for crowd-funded projects sounds like a good idea, but it's all in the execution.

* not comics: the cartoonist and illustrator Laura Park has a picture-book out.

* finally, a Superman-related event has Joe Shuster sketches of a model from which he assembled the basic look of Superman, or at least parts of that look. I like that there's still stuff to learn about Superman, even if this is something that might have been out there but simply forgot (I honestly can't remember).
