Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* the Orphan Works Bill is back.

image* a few nice personal reminiscences of the late artist Dave Simons have popped up on-line since Simons' passing: James H. Burns, Clifford Meth and Gerry Alanguilan.

* this is a great story about Gene Deitch and John Lee Hooker.

* Drew Friedman draws Will Farrell.

* apparently, Ralph Steadman hates the iPhone.

* finally, the great Carlton Hargro offers up some 2009-specific reasons why attending this year's Heroes Con will be a good idea, including the fact that Jeff Smith will be there. Getting a chance to chat with Hargro, one of the few working journalists who also covers comics, might be an 11th reason.
