Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* egad, what a conference line-up.

image* there's nothing quite like 1960s-era interviews with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

* call me nuts, but those Shia LaBeouf comics look kind of unaffected, ridiculous and potentially cool. Comics culture can't even process a newcomer with $15K in the bank and a history of dating that goes back more than 18 months, so there's going to be a bunch of weird rhetoric out there about the film actor's recent efforts in the words and pictures arena -- on both sides -- but I say god bless him.

* this is barely comics and barely human.

* vintage Richard Sala.

* not comics: here's some comics people hanging out with Will Smith.

* Doug Dorr talks to Aaron Duran. Sean T. Collins talks to Shia LaBeouf. Somebody named Jon talks to Steve Purcell. Laura Akers talks to Erika Moen.

* I don't usually focus on deals here, but hey: cheaper-than-expected Stan Sakai.

* Dave Kellett has a free book for you.

* aw, look at this nice Edward Gorey cover.

* Chris Eckert looks at an old Frank Miller speech and its statements about the comic-book hearings of the 1950s.

* Philip Shropshire on Prophet #22. Brian Hibbs on various comics. Kristy Valenti on Astro City. Sean Gaffney on Cross Game Vol. 7. Grant Goggans on Vworp Vworp #2. Rob Clough on The Wolf. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Green Lantern #7. Johanna Draper Carlson on Archie Archives Vol. 5. Mickhael Salim on Hey Skinny!. Todd Klein on Green Lantern Corps #6, Memorial #1-2, Memorial #3-4 and Chase. Sarah Jaffe on Gonzo.

* finally, Mort Weisinger remembered. With a shovel.
