Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Sean Gaffney on She And Her Cat. Rob Clough on Pope Hats #5.

* here's comics-interested author Glen David Gold on his experience reading Jack Kirby's The Demon as a kid. I wonder if that one wasn't even racked in my Indiana grocery stores, because I knew nothing about that character when he reappeared in Swamp Thing in the 1980s. I was a Mister Miracle fiend, too.

* Abraham Riesman picks eight comics to read in September. These aren't the best ones in my particular mind, although four of these books would make my version of that kind of list. This is more catholic, and dives into multiple comics expressions. I still have a hard time caring about the latest Evil Batmen storyline at DC, although I urge DC to call it an Evil Batmen storyline rather than a "dark multiverse" storyline.

* finally, Sam Dunnington at BillyPenn notes the passing of South Philly Comics and digs into the sometimes hazardous infrastructure from which comics must finds its way. It's a monopoly in all but a legal finding that would allow people to sue away the monopoly. At this point I'm not sure what a Diamond competitor would even look like, although I think it might have the greatest effect merely causing more shared risk at that level.
