Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* really good blogging from Gary Tyrrell here about how webcomics-related Kickstarter campaigns act atypically in terms of trends regarding Kickstarter campaigns more generally.

image* I totally missed a transcribed conversation between Sean Witzke and Matt Seneca about the issue of Solo that featured Paul Pope.

* Jim Rugg and Jasen Lex talk to Benjamin Marra.

* not comics: Robert Boyd goes to Marfa. This why I like blogging.

* two good ones from Mark Evanier: one on Harry Harrison; one that lets us know that Roz Kirby didn't ink the "inked by Roz Kirby" stuff; not really.

* hey, it's a Nick Mullins post on text-image pairings.

* these Mike Wieringo Spider-Man drawings are pretty great.

* I missed the 15th birthday of Transmetropolitan. Yeah, we'll all be dead soon.

* I'm not sure why any of us bother when the greatest comics-related story of them all was written years ago.

* Abhay Khosla pulls out an interesting Kyle Baker quote on inking. This works for a lot of different kinds of writing, too. Speaking of Baker, here's a review of a Damage Control comic he did with the late Dwayne McDuffie.

* Martin Wisse makes a good point about having to cross a certain threshold in order to start buying comics on-line through certain avenues, and that this keeps people from doing it. I know it's kept me in the past from buying stuff.

* Sonia Harris looks at why we read, basically looking at the question based around the idea of following artists and writers as opposed to the idea of following characters.

* finally, is that really the cover to the Popeye comic book that came out this week? That's really attractive. Hooray for that.
