Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rob Clough on Lowriders In Space. Jim Johnson on Batman #45. Robert Tutton on I Hate Fairyland. Jason Wilkins on Paper Girls #1. Eleanor Davis on Futchi Perf. Emilia Packard on The Story Of My Tits.

* I thought this was a wonderful facebook post to just stumble across. Kudos to Mr. Berger and every best wish to him in dealing with his health issues.

* so I guess there's a new Wolverine -- the Laura Kinney character created by Craig Kyle and Chris Yost. I remember making jokes on twitter about the old Wolverine dying, so I guess that was an actual thing that took place in that narrative. I don't really have a dog in the fight of characters taking over for other characters; it reminds me of when I was a kid and there'd be a new Ronald McDonald and it'd be freaky for a couple of months and then that would be the new Ronald McDonald. I'm happy for more diverse character line-ups, but it's pretty far away from a kind of storytelling and creativity I find worth digging into.

* not comics: imagine staffing to fit the journalistic mission!

* Katherine Dacey does a solid link round-up for manga news from NYCC 2015. I was unable to piece together as good of one on my own, that's for sure.

* when I worked at Fantagraphics in the 1990s, I had one of these except it was Gary Groth yelling at me.

* Heidi MacDonald reports for PW on the conference at NYCC on sales and the like.

* Sean Michael Hurley writes an obit for Dennis Eichhorn. His peers remember him at Tom Van Deusen writes that site's formal obit.
