Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Sean Kleefeld reminds us that yesterday was Earth Day.

image* Mike Dawson talks to Tim Kreider. Frank Santoro profiles a bunch of younger cartoonists.

* Mark Frauenfelder writes about the great Jim Woodring's next project, Fran.

* Ryan Wickland was nice enough to march through this site's core "Comics Links" page and point out all the malware bombs sitting there waiting for bored people that might trust such an old resource more than maybe they should. As thanks, I direct you to his comics collectible e-bay alternative site. I lack the knowledge to tell you if that's the best site ever or the worst, but I figure it can't hurt to let you know about it, especially considering the favor Wickland just did this site.

* Pappy on Frazetta Funny Stuff. Prajna Desai on Bhimayana: Experiences of Untouchability. Tucker Stone on various comics. Rob Clough on new comics from Caitlin Cass. Henry Covert on Sorrow #2. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Princess Knight Vol. 1. Dean Kmiecik on 5 Is The Perfect Number.

* not comics: I was whining the other day about a lack of underground/alternative t-shirts so someone sent me this link to a bunch of new Jim Woodring t-shirts.

* Todd Allen on buying comics by browsing. Alan David Doane on Todd Allen on buying comics by browsing.

* I'm sort of impressed that Charlie Biro managed to work up this spring's most alarming cover image... 70 years ago. Yikes.

* finally, this strip is totally not butthole (thanks, Paul)
