Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* John Seven on the latest from Retrofit.

* go, watch: Christian Adams makes a cartoon.

* Christopher Borrelli profiles Geof Darrow. I like this one: Darrow comes across as articulate, good-humored and down to earth.

* the Algerian man involved with a group of Philadelphia-area people in targeting artist Lars Wilks for death because of his post-Danish cartoons Muhammed-as-dog stunt has come to Philadelphia.

* a bit of not comics: there were a lot of fun feature articles about Comic-Con this year as more and more truly pop savvy writers come of age at various publications. This article about the first Star Wars panel at the show way back in the '70s was one of best of this year's crop.

* things come full circle for Singaporean officials and multiple Eisner winner Sonny Liew.

* remembering Naji al-Ali 30 years later.

* finally: Mark Waid and Chris Samnee on a Captain America comic sounds good to me. Waid's had a pretty good couple of run with that character and Samnee is at the top of his game.
