Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* I don't read a whole lot of Facebook list stuff because I don't really collected Facebook friend according to my intense interest in their taste in art of various kinds. I do know that Charles Vess might have a whole lot of interesting books to list given his reading on the subject matter of his art and comics. So I might start here and poke around.

* this article on potential fantasy series on television has news on some big-time comics efforts of the last half decade or so. That might not be news for some of you, but at least the comics listed here have some oomph behind them.

* not comics: I'm sure I'm not the only one that reads management articles and tries to figure out which superhero team they describe. I'm pretty sure you can do a great big-projects oriented article on the first Avengers movie, right down to the role that the Hulk smashing plays. This one was "Original X-Men," by the way, with the no-no being the new X-Men through about #150 when the teams stopped being compared all of the time.

* finally, here's a by request extra: count Colin Upton among those from the 1980s/1990s cartoonists that are experimenting with Patreons. I can't find him except for this automatic video from Facebook, although that kind of dissonance is common to older-cartoonist patreons.
