Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* there's a custom hardbound Darwyn Cooke volume of some sort on sale here; the seller will turn the money made over to the Hero Initiative in the name of the late cartoonist.

image* Alexander Jones on Black Panther #2 and the chances it captures the imagination of a certain kind of comics fan more generally. It should be interesting how that series does sales-wise as it progresses. Beth on Classic Comic Postcards. Rob McMonigal on Satellite Falling #1. Paul Gravett on Asian Comics.

* Farel Dalrymple draws characters created by Brandon Graham.

* here's why Philip Pullman loves comics.

* Chris Arrant talks to Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp about their forthcoming work on Wonder Woman. That headline sounds like a exploitation-era movie poster tagline. Angela Boyle profiles Tillie Walden.

* hey, it's Alan Moore's Unearthing.

* the writer Chris Sims breaks down the Batman Family into its prime components. That's an interesting historical note that Grant Morrison saw Batman's sometimes huge-seeming network of pals and allies as a primary element of the character. Also, yes, that Gordon vs. Flass scene is an all-timer.

* never knew about this underbelly plotline in Marvel's Civil War series from several years back. It's pretty silly.

* election years are the worst. I don't even know what the hell is going on with the First Lady's penis there.

* finally: I'm not sure exactly why I bookmarked Erik Larsen's occasional comics-teaching posts on Facebook, but here you go.
