Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* the esteemed art comics publisher Drawn and Quarterly celebrated their 20th anniversary with a big ol' party and brings you some pictures as proof.

* here's a (kind of loud) video I'm told is shot at the recent NCS annual convention. I haven't had the chance to watch it all the way through yet.

* the writer and critic Don MacPherson writes about the Comic-Con International sell-out and wonders if that's actually such a great thing. I hadn't noticed, but I guess there are film- and TV-related things going on at the convention now?

* the blogger and cartoonist Daryl Cagle responds to Keith Knight's suggestions for the NCS annual convention. Read it for the Jim Davis Plate anecdote.

* Where In The World Was Craig Thompson?

* finally, I can't imagine a better-written article previewing a signing than this one by Ben Schwartz on Seth and Adrian Tomine's forthcoming appearance at Quimby's. It's almost too good, but anyone that complains gets punched in the throat.
