Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* President Obama is like Reagan!

image* super-villain team-up: Julia Wertz and Johnny Ryan. Doing children's book parodies.

* Bob Temuka imagines the end of comics and finds himself not too sad over such an option, at least from a pretty rigorous creative standpoint. I think there's something to be gleaned from here about these companies over-publishing, for sure; except in one or two cases these aren't the greatest concept and it just doesn't make sense from a long-term resource management standpoint to have folks cranking out more adventures for the Teen Titans when they could be working on something else less tired.

* we're down to the last week of on-line voting for the Eisners. You should really go and vote if you haven't.

* go here to stare at a nice charity piece by Stan Sakai.

* if you start here and follow the links you'll see a bunch of artists doing scenes from movies. I think. (via)

* the writer and comics historian Mark Evanier responds to the folks that are rumbling about starting a creator-focused convention to run at the same time as Comic-Con International.

* finally, Robot 6 tracks a rumor that Paul Pope's Battling Boy may end up in on-line serialization. I think I remember a Paul Pope blog post where he pined for the days of print serialization while wrestling a bit with this project, so maybe that's related.
