Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Jakob Free talks to Daniel Warren Johnson.

* Todd Klein on Cave Carson #3. Andy Oliver on The Palace Of Champions from the great Henriette Valium. Never in my life have I laughed more than a couple of hours I spent in an SPX hotel room (the Holiday Inn) with a half-dozen people listening to Henriette Valium say things.

* Sean Kleefeld gets into the sometimes-inexplicable world of pre-1980 comic strip marketing, via that all-time inexplicably comic strip character, Andy Capp.

* Paste makes a list out of comics sex scenes. I might be alone in this, but "sex scenes" personally hits me as a weird construct outside of my movies-on-tape collection from 1982, so it's interesting to read about scenes isolated on this basis. There don't seem to be a lot of them in the course of standard genre narratives, that's for sure.

* finally, Mark Peters ties Ed Brubaker's Archie homage into the new TV series.
