Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Todd Klein on Dark Horse Presents #35. Zainab Akhtar on CBSP Fairytales For Bad Bitches. Marjorie Ingall on Above The Dreamless Dead.

* what sounds like the collapse of a disorganized con leads to some better business bureau advice. If you don't know the people with whom you're working, you're always at risk. You're probably at risk anyway, no matter what.

* this is Ryan Holmberg's first foray into manga history of 2015, and I look forward to reading it.

* Mark Evanier declares his intention to finish his more prose-driven Jack Kirby biography this year.

* the ComicsAlliance best-of list is always much anticipated because of all the humorous categories. I think one reason I liked numbered best-of lists is that I'd be more interested in an essay that made the case that Arsene Schrauwen was the book of the year than I am that it's another book worth your consideration, but that's just me.

* here's a profile of a new pay-as-you-go sketchbook from Natalie Nourigat.

* finally, I'm sad to see that Galerija Elektrika Pancevo has closed. That's one of the great places in the world for comics, and one of the great places for creative foment that leads to great comics.
