Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* never understood the appeal of the Deathstroke character, but they keep putting him atop that flagpole, looking for salutes.

* Dan Taylor profiles Stephan Pastis. Rouwen Lin profiles Sam Hepburn. Doug Moe profiles Rodney Lambright.

* missed that the artist that slipped some political imagery into the backgrounds -- very sparse backgrounds, probably one of the reasons it was noticeable -- of yet another relaunched X-Men comic was let go by the company. I think that's the right decision. I'm no fan of assembly line comics but if you're going to stuff five people into a room (of sorts) they have to be able to trust one another. I get along with co-workers just fine on those occasions I have co-workers, but I doubt it would work as well if I decided to do something that had them scrambling to make a public apology and disavow my joke.

* finally: yeah, that's very amusing.
