Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Sean Gaffney on Attack On Titan Vol. 16. Todd Klein on BPRD: Hell On Earth Vol. 10. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Baba Yaga's Assistant. Johanna Draper Carlson on Hicksville. Doug Zawisza on Doctor Strange #1.

* that smart man Philip Nel writes about Children's Literature, and the act of reading it as an adult. I heartily concur, although I still worry about my friends and acquaintances that fail to engage with a wide variety of material including prose that most children wouldn't choose to read or likely wouldn't be able to process. I'm old that way.

* by request extra: Tony Breed and his husband still haven't reached their goal. I hope you'll consider helping.

* Steve Foxe talks to Chip Zdarsky. Hayley Campbell talks to Jonathan Chandler.

* that's interesting. I don't know how effective that kind of broad effort can be, but it's worth trying and there have been rumblings for this kind of group PR campaign for years now. The branding is sort of interesting in that I thought they'd try to do something with the phrase "BD," which I think has a lot of potential. Then again, this one may be bigger than just French-language comics.

* Rachel Pinnelas to Dynamite. It's always important when dealing with underrepresented hiring categories that members of them get second and third chances, not just first ones, so I'm happy for the move.
