Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Lewis Trondheim in Les Petits Riens on turning 50. It's number 844.

image* Andrea Fiamma talks to Jeff Smith. Michael C. Lorah talks to Julia Wertz.

* an Alex Schubert top five.

* this is your every few days' reminder that it might be possible for you to draw comics on a boat as it does its business on the high seas.

* they're apparently doing a month of Phil Noto variant covers at Marvel. It's so difficult to use variants in a non-exploitative way, one that doesn't drag on the overall market, but one thing Marvel's done the last five years is focus on variants you can imagine people wanting to have for the sake for the art depicted, if that makes any sense.

* I will never get tired of looking at pictures of Dave Lasky teaching middle-aged Russians how to make comics.

* I don't know what's going on with DC Comics and their serial comics, but it doesn't seem healthy.

* finally, someone on a random Facebook commentary thread reminded me they reposted the "American Icons" on MAD. I can't find the repost, but here's that original.
