Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Frank Santoro is selling pages from Kramers Ergot Vol. 8.

image* via a bunch of you comes word that Hans Rickheit's blog has re-launched.

* I would imagine it would be fairly intimidating to get your portfolio reviewed by Gary Groth.

* not comics: I'm in on anything Dave Cooper is doing.

* Graeme McMillan talks about Mark Waid talking about one basic appeal of digital comics: that print comics has priced itself/worried away any expectation of profits from any reasonable expectation of doing one without taking a severe financial hit. Waid's contributions to discussions of the growing reality of digital comics has been invaluable thus far, even if some of the rhetoric -- like the insistence Waid somehow has it in for print comics -- has been distressing.

* I'm always interested in reading descriptions of comics shop positives that depend on things in which I have no interest. I find them interesting shopping experience rather than avatars of community. I never went to a comics shop looking for pals and fellow travelers; I went looking for comics.

image* Carol Kino profiles Dan Clowes. Albert Ching talks to Ed Brubaker.

* this may be the last time Moebius drew.

* what are we going to do with all of these comics?

* Martyn Pedler on Interiorae. Phil Guie on Athos In America. James Bacon on Soulless. Richard Bruton on D'Accord, 14 Nights and The Adventures Of Leeroy And Popo. Rob Clough on Mineshaft #27 and comics by Tom Galambos. Greg McElhatton on Shark King. Sean T. Collins on Esperanza. Tucker Stone on My Friend Dahmer. J. Caleb Mozzocco on American Barbarian. Kelly Thompson on Avengers Vs. X-Men #1. Todd Klein on Gone To Amerikay.

* go, look: a Simon Gane Godzilla spread.

* Eltingville manga?

* Brigid Alverson has a new dream job.

* finally, new books in the Domino Books store.
