Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Reuben Willmott walks us through some old UKCAC booklets. This kind of thing is how I'll spend my mornings in heaven.

* Megan Purdy on Nightlights.

* there's a nice write-up here on the number of professionals denied professional registration at NYCC this year. What I don't see is an explanation as to why this specific group of pros would be subject to this specific glitch. In fact, the system they describe sounds like it has a manual element that would kind of preclude systemic glitches, although maybe they're saying that got switched off. I'm also thinking this seems to happen year after year. Oh, who the hell knows. At least some respected comics pros that want to do business or just go to the show should have that chance now. If I had to run a system like that my head would explode. My favorite shows are free to everyone but those selling at the show, and I hope in the next couple of years to make one of them free to exhibitors, too.

* here's an art-driven appreciation of Metal Hurlant.

* yeah, I can't tell what the hell is going on here, either. Hopefully it's been updated since I wrote this and now.

* finally: that time Steve Ditko responded to a bootleg Michael DeForge Spider-Man comic.
