Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Alex Hoffman on Minor Leagues #4.

* here's another short and impossibly broad article comparing the two superhero-driven companies' approach to line relaunches. It does seem like DC is doing a better job with the latest refashioning, although Marvel's next one has yet to hit. My problem with these more general articles is that we're talking relative minor differences in the context of all entertainment measurements, which leaves open the possibility that grand strategies have less to do with it than comic-to-comic execution.

* that's an interesting take on the last decade or so of major publishing events and their influence on the shape of comics right now. I think I agree with about half of it: one full agreement, two half-agreement, one full disagreement.

* finally: Greg Hunter talks to Whit Taylor.
