Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* it's been a while since I've seen any columnist take the "these gol-durn comics cost too much" approach.

image* the cartoonist Dave Lapp sent along this nice photo of Chester Brown having received an advance copy of his forthcoming, much-anticipated Paying For It. Thanks, Dave.

* not comics: Chris Cilla offers up an audio mix, I guess in support of The Heavy Hand.

* as part of an ongoing attempt to try and get a handle on a vast pile of unused, bookmarked links, let me post a link to this interview with Eric Reynolds from December about various digital initiatives at Fantagraphics. The TCJ questions have since answered themselves, but it looked to me then and still does now that the alt-publisher are a long way off from doing anything in the digital realm.

* here's another one: a no-doubt occurring near Angouleme Festival-generated article about Quai d'Orsay.

* heck, let's do a few more. Here's a link-post to a bunch of videos from the Society Of Illustrators. Some really promising-sounding stuff in there. I have still bookmarked both Garry Wills fine essay on Garry Trudeau and Dan Nadel's piece on Wally Wood. I forgot to post Tom Batiuk's response to a satirical site that was commenting on his work, which is interesting in and of itself and interesting just in terms of on-line humorous material. Finally, this store didn't seem so bad to me, but that may be because I'm happy to shop in a lot worse that do me the favor of simply existing in this part of the country. Granted, there could be something I'm not getting.

* not comics, exactly: is Barry Eisler's decision to self-publish his next book a big deal or not?

* sign up for comics class.

* finally, I've never rushed off from something happening right in front of me to go blog about it, but I think I might if the super-provocation were goofy enough.
