Random Comics News Story Round-Up
* Newsarama profiles the troubles
facing comic book legend Russ Heath.
* Alex Deuben does the great work
of introducing Richard Thompson and his mighty Cul De Sac
to Comic Book Resources
readers who might never have seen those comics before.
* the critic Matt Seneca writes a long piece about comics on-line
and what that means from a variety of perspectives.
* the High Five
anthology is available here
in PDF form.
* the Fantastic Four were once his neighbors
* Bob Temuka writes about the appeal and occasional disappointment of licensed comics
. Speaking of which, Dynamite picks up the licensing rights to the Voltron franchise
. The main thing I remember about Voltron
is that it seemed to be one of those shows that you got mad at for not being a better show. I'm certain it was someone's favorite, though. I'll repeat my offer to anyone out there: I'll write your QED
comic book for free. Also I think someone should license SCTV
or something related and do an anthology with all the humor cartoonists.
* the hardest working man in the writing about comics business, Jeet Heer, writes on racism in old comics
as a stylistic choice.
* if you're a fan of newspapers, make a mental not where you were when you read the claim made in this post
* the writer J.M. DeMatteis muses on his first published comics story
, recently re-published on-line.
* Kelly Sue DeConnick and ChrisCross on Supergirl
, for a time.
* finally, you can sort of read a battle between TCJ
1.0 vs. TCJ
; I'm not certain if anyone won but I feel like I lost. Speaking of which, that post led me to this tribute from Andrei Molotiu
about the now-defunct message board. I still don't miss it.
