Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Andy Oliver on Dead Singers Society Vol. 2. Shawn Starr on Regarding Quicksand. Amy Estersohn on Ghosts. Heather Dickson on Out There Vol. 1. Sean Gaffney on A Certain Magical Index Vol. 8. Thomas Maluck on Naruto: The Seventh Hokage And The Scarlet Spring.

* the writer Matt Fraction wonders after the Nausicaa manga, and a specific formal choice made by Hayao Miyazaki.

* Daryl Cagle adds a couple of cartoonists to his extensive roster.

* go, read: Dave Press on why non-fiction writers can be good comics writers.

* go, look: Steve Ditko inked by Bernie Wrightson.

* Katy Faulkner writes about highlights from the Jay Kennedy Collection at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. I'm really glad that material found a home there, and knowing Jay a little bit I think he'll be glad for people being able to access comics from a period and sub-culture very dear to his heart.

* I guess John Ostrander is writing a Suicide Squad comic. The story to me is why John Ostrander isn't writing Suicide Squad comics all of the time. It's not like people have been killing it on that title in the various stabs at it since. It's not like he's an actor and has aged out of a role; he's a writer.

* finally, Bully speaks truth.
