Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Howard Chaykin responds to those responding to him on Alex Toth. I have a strong hope that he and Gary Groth will talk for print in the next few issues of the revived TCJ, kind of a "Sons Of Gil Kane" thing. Chaykin's career has continued to be one that can make for interesting discussion, too.

* what Mike Thompson reads.

* visions of '90s alt-comics: Speedy Ortiz is filmed at Quimby's last Sunday.

* Gary Tyrrell on Island Book.

* Great to hear that BN Duncan's papers have been processed by the good folks at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. Duncan made a lot of interesting art, wholly his own.

* DD Degg profiles Nathan Archer.

* finally: here's a group of classic comic strip artists appearing on one of the network TV game shows. I'm terrible at game show names, so don't ask me.
