Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Shawn Starr on Late Bloomer. Mike Sterling on that Killing Joke cartoon.

* Mike Lynch gives us a look at the studio of the late Richard Thompson. A lot of folks were in the DC area over the weekend in order to attend a memorial service.

* after several years in a variety of jobs with the company, Janice Headley is apparently no longer working at Fantagraphics. I wish her the best with whatever she does next.

* not comics: Bully is running board game art, a cul-de-sac of pop culture for which I have a great deal of fondness.

* a few CR readers have sent along this lengthy Faith Erin Hicks post about emotion and pacing in comics. You can argue that shifts in approach to those two things are the big change brought to North American comics more generally by the under-40 generation's adoption of more world-comics approaches, particularly manga.

* Paul Gravett talks to Marcel Ruijters.

* Warren Ellis on rejection. This is a lot more practical than the advice that I give on rejection, which is to accept it but learn nothing.

* finally, Nina Bunjevac remembers her father.
