Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* there's a really nice post here from Tim Hensley about a gig facilitating something close to the original Black Blizzard lettering.

image* here's a giant, permanent resource-style list of graphic novels with female protagonist being whipped together by an all-star line-up of Internet writer-about-comics regulars.

* today's loaded selection of birthday includes Alvin Buenaventura and Greg McElhatton. I can't do a birthday greeting post for Alvin because I have no idea how old he is and I can't do one for Greg because I can't figure out an icon/image to use. Happy birthday anyway, fellas.

* there's a three-part interview with Tokyopop's Stuart Levy at the comics business and news analysis site (1, 2, 3). Levy says the company is stable in the bookstores, stable in a different way in the comics shops, and bullish on digital. The most interesting stuff in there was a comparison of the British and German market. Well, to me, anyway.

* that Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World trailer is a really nice, effective trailer, and the film looks like a great deal of fun. What else is there to say?

* not comics: I would see all of these movies, sure. Why not?

* RC Harvey talks about the launch of Action Comics #1 and whether or not the publication was initially designed for children or adults.

* Darryl Cunningham and Roger Langridge talk UK Web And Mini-Comix Thing.

* finally, Lynda Barry speaking is like the greatest thing ever, don't you know.
