Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rob Clough talks to Whit Taylor. Angela Boyle profiles Laura Martin. Rob Clough on Credo. Todd Klein on Green Lantern #7.

* I never understand traitor plot lines the way they do superhero comic books right now. 1. It's hard to convince that the plot point won't just be reversed when convenient. 2. There's not enough time spent with most of these characters for these to have dramatic impact. 3. It seems like most of these characters would be better utilized as heroic characters given the needs of the line. That may just be me, though.

* I endorse the notion of unfortunately-timed strips.

* Bundled extra: LOAC gets close on Dick Tracy. I'm really glad they're trying to get to the last volumes, which are rarely collected but frequently awesome to behold.

* finally: I enjoy these strip-ending analyses by Gary Tyrrell.
