Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Steve Bissette has an interesting note up about Mike Baron's latest prose novel, Whack Job. Scott Cederlund on Stockholm Is Sauceome.

* there's not enough of it to justify pulling out a panel in order to drive traffic there, but I'm always interested in what Art Spiegelman chooses to do.

* how Lynda Barry met Marlys. Great cartoonist, great character: now and forever.

* Team We Should Be Friends talks to Cathy G. Johnson. Adam Fluck talks to Caitlin McGurk.

* not comics: Neil Gaiman on how to mend a broken heart. Any advice involving scar tissue is great advice.

* here's industry-watching vet Augie De Blieck Jr. on the death of big-site comics-industry journalism. Journalism isn't a natural market player. It has survived for years providing services that aren't journalism. When those things are available elsewhere, journalism suffers a bit as a bigger-media exercise. Rinse. Repeat.

* here's a chance to get a hold of a digital copy of a comics-focused issue of Graphis, which is not only about the history of the art form but its assemblage of opinions and works part of that history. Here's another such buy, which means I likely picked up the links in the same place -- sorry to whomever that is.

* finally, congratulations to Sophie Yanow on her faculty gig with Center For Cartoon Studies.
