Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* what a lovely new on-line comics publication: Darling Sleeper. I look forward to linking to every single feature on there.

* I can't get the link I was sent to work but it looks like Victor Dandridge has brokered a deal with the Wizard folks to do his classes at a number of their shows. I'm glad if that's what I'm reading: I've seen Dandridge speak; he's an impressive, persuasive speaker and I have to think that what he does would be well-suited to kids-day programming. His site is here.

* Jesse Lucas talks to Box Brown. Brett White and Albert Ching talk to Tom Brevoort and Axel Alonso. Philippe LeBlanc talks to Kelly Tindall. Brett White talks to Cullen Bunn. Georgia Webber talks to Aisha Franz. Ashley Victoria Robinson talks to Megan Levens. Liv Siddall talks to Joe Dator. Bart Croonenborghs talks to Roman Muradov.

* turns out the late Don Harron was a cartoonist at one point, which is only interesting to me. I track that kind of thing because I think we're getting at a point where over the next 20 years we're going to see another wave of general entertainment figures who at one point were comics-makers.

* I totally missed that a Ganzeer exhibit opened on the 16th.

* Brian Heater picks five graphic novels that even comics haters will like. I don't know, I think I would just get them something else. Good list, though.

* finally, I haven't found a place to put this report on homelessness and mental illness in comics and illustrated-essay form by Dan Archer, but I hate to sit on it any longer.
