Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rob Clough on a bunch of comics by Reilly Hadden. Todd Klein on Green Lantern #3. Andy Oliver on Chlorine Gardens. Johanna Draper Carlson on Is Kichijoji The Only Place To Live? Volume Five.

* Heidi MacDonald calls attention to a recent Hannah Berry article about Berry's financial situation over a three-year stretch, and the saving grace of a partner making wages to live on. I think this is the new mission that now that the literary value and cultural impact of comics is no longer in question: return as much money and support to the creative class as possible. That doesn't automatically mean the problem is solved; my guess is that no matter how many cartoonists see a return that allows their work to be supported there will be three others that wish it to be so. But as many cross that threshold, the better; and to push at the limits of sustainable return better lets us know what's possible.

* finally: DT Max profiles Nick Drnaso.
