Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Anna Fitzpatrick talks to Mimi Pond.

* Paul Schott profiles Bob Rich, a long-time newspaper cartoonist looking for a gig like so many others post 2008 and eventually finding one at a financial firm.

* it's always weird for me to look at fantasy illustration form 1960 to 1985 because for me comics were partly an extension of my ongoing childhood fantasy wallow. So looking at something like this Corben illustration has for me the same general feeling that looking at old comics might have, only I was creating the entire narrative in my head. It probably says something about the comics of the time that this confluence was even possible.

* finally: Happy Birthday, Julie.
