Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Todd Klein on Green Lanterns #27.

* Hannah Means Shannon asks after comics' lack of politeness. I'm not sure I agree with the general premise that comics is uniquely non-polite, not sure I'd go so far as to identify where most of these impolite moments are taking place between whom, not sure I follow the human effect argument -- but I say so with all courtesy.

* bundled extra: here are the comic tie-ins for this year's The Incredibles sequel.

* well-resepectd veteran cartoonist Clay Bennett wins the Thomas Nast Award from the Overseas Press Club. I am so way behind on awards to shame a more conscientious reporter into retirement. Let me try to catchup soon. Congrats to Mr. Bennett in the meantime.

* this article doesn't seem like it has a lot to say to wider audience or a lot to suggest about the hidden motivations of an existing one. When Marvel made comics this person liked, they were bought. When Marvel didn't do as much of that, fewer comics were bought.

* finally: Jim Carrey, political cartoonist.
