Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Tegan O'Neil is the author of today's Bernie Wrightson memorial column. That's a new column generally for O'Neil.

* everything stays on-line forever.

* The Beat digs through Rian Sygh's twitter thread on his comics-related finances. I'm grateful for Sygh to post that information, and I think as it's rare for cartoonists to do that. All information is appreciated. I don't know that I'm 100 percent convinced you need a ton of information to avoid making bad choices -- I think you can tell a job is a good one or not from the amount you're paid, not necessarily the amount you're paid in relation to someone else. It can help you not be exploited, though. If writers and artists continue to do lots of jobs that obviously don't pay the bills, we need to identify why and serve whatever mindset that indicates so as to keep them from self-harm over a large period of time.

* Patricia Benoit profiles John Russell Cross.

* finally, I really like this Tarzan drawing by Jeff Smith. I haven't seen it since around the time they were commissioned.
