Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* the home of cartoonist and illustrator Syd Hoff has been designated a literary landmark.

image* Sean T. Collins on Prison Pit Vol. 4. Spittle on Hicksville. Ian McGillis on Susceptible. James Hunt on Secret Avengers #1.

* so here's a lengthy big-media hosted blog post on Yossarian.

* Ryan Lindsay recommends six largely-forgotten stories starring the character Daredevil. That's one of the rare lists where I don't think I've heard of any of them, except maybe the one with Joe Quesada art.

* next year's CR holiday gift guide is going to be one link: this Etsy store.

* another fine Hannah Means-Shannon event report.

* not comics: it would never happen, but Peter Dinklage could play a great Cyclops.

* did I tell you the Deconstructing Comics guys were talking about Bloom County? Because they are in this podcast. I like those guys.

* Michael Cavna profiles Kevin KAL Kallaugher. Nick Gazin talks to Gary Panter. John Rovnak talks to Mark Bodé. Kent Worcester talks to Lisa Lyons, and I have to say I'm not entirely familiar with her. Gary Groth talks to Megan Kelso back in 1999. Someone at the FCBD effort interviews Emmanuel Guibert and Marc Boutavant.

* not comics: nice Mercury cover. There was actually a lot of fun Valentine's Day stuff here and there around the comics Internet but I'm old and alone and I avoided most of it. Here's one I saw. I have to imagine that's the best one.

* not comics: I'm not sure how long I've had this in the bookmarks, but here's someone who has placed elements of Calvin & Hobbes art into photographs.

* congratulations to Wardell Brown on finishing up his black hero project.

* John Porcellino is moving.

* finally, a guide to kissing.
