Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* Michael Cavna notes that somebody had to catch the Jerry Holbert watermelon toothpaste cartoon for the change to have been made and thus noticeable: it was Reed Jackson, and kudos to him for having the baseline cultural awareness that the potential offense was obvious to him.

image* Henry Chamberlain on Gotham Academy #1. Rob Clough on The System and a pair of activist comics. Todd Klein on The Graveyard Book Vol. 1. Sean Gaffney on I Am Alice: Body Swap In Wonderland Vol. 1. Paul O'Brien on Uncanny Avengers Vol. 5. Kelly Thompson on The Walking Dead #132. J. Caleb Mozzocco on the Godhead storyline in a bunch of Green Lantern-related comics. Patrick Hess on some of the Valiant comics. Man, I know nothing about those comics. Alex Hoffman (I think) on Cat Dad: King Of The Goblins.

* this may be the most George Perez of the early George Perez pages I've seen.

* damages caused by Calvin. Hobbes is imaginary.

* this is a pretty good joke.

* I liked this rearrangement of "important" narrative moments in the history of Marvel Comics arranged in chronological order. The story of a fictional universe is not how I engage with comics, even superhero comics, but I'm open to the idea that the interconnected narratives post-1960 are a significant contribution to modern pop culture.

* Paddy Johnston talks to Ken Parille. Richard Bruton on Megahex.

* finally, it looks like Gabrielle Bell is offering up another round of diary pages.
