Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Christiana Salah talks to RJ Casey.

* saw this picture of Bob Fingerman and Eric Reynolds on the front porch of Fantagraphics and enjoyed it. I believe Fingerman is out West now, orienting towards opportunities like MAD and more broadly as a writer. As far as the photo goes, I think those chairs have been out there since 1994. There are probably a lot fewer cigarette butts just out of frame than might have existed back in the day.

* editorial cartoonists address the subject of Trump's Wall.

* not comics: it's been fun watching various Seattle comics personalities say goodbye to the Viaduct, an oddly charming but decidedly anachronistic visual gateway to one of comics' great cities. Comics has a big heart when it comes to those kinds of things.

* festivals extra: tomorrow is I believe the last day for the latest Call For Papers from the CSSC. That's a June conference, I think.

* Rob Clough on books by Aaron Cockle. Matt Seneca and Joe McCulloch discuss Parallel Lives. John Seven on Kingdom.

* finally: Marylou Tousignant profiles Robert Ripley.
