Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* if there's one person right now not a comics creator with whom you should acquaint yourself, it's Katie Lane.

image* Todd Klein on Walt Kelly's Fairy Tales. Paul O'Brien on Extraordinary X-Men #6-7. John Kane on a bunch of different comics. Johanna Draper Carlson on Kiss Him! Not Me! Vol. 3. Zainab Akhtar on See You Next Tuesday.

* this Anders Nilsen post about Alvin Buenaventura is as powerful as any that were done.

* not comics: everyone should look at this amazing Marc Bell print and more than a few people in a subset of that first group of people should maybe consider buying one.

* I bet a lot of musicians worked at some point in a comic book store.

* Greg McElhatton points out an all-time highlight moment for comics industry journalism.

* Hillary Brown talks to Josh Cotter. Carolyn Cox talks to Sophie Campbell.

* not comics: veteran comics writer Peter David engages with fan sentiment that an Asian actor might be cast as Iron Fist in the forthcoming TV version of the character's story. I imagine there is is significant pushback. I'm a bit at a loss in terms of the assertion that the character is white, and I think if you analyze the top 200 characters at the mainstream companies only about two or three have caucasian-ness as an integral component of their primary narratives.

* hard to disagree with this statement.

* finally, I'm glad Charles Vess got an answer to his Spider-Man collection question, but it's still pretty weird.
