Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Alexander Jones on The Once And Future Queen Vol. 1. Sean Gaffney on How A Realist Hero Rebuilt The Kingdom Vol 4. Andy Oliver on The Realm #1-2.

* congratulations to Heidi MacDonald on finding a new publisher for her The Beat, at Lion Forge through a newly-created division. CR was created in mind with our selling it as soon as we could and like many thing, everyone out there seemed to be more talented at finding a publisher or someone to take over entirely than we did.

* I'm not sure why anyone for a non-depressing reason would want to look at a comic where a character appears in theatrical blackface, but here you go. I suppose since most portrayals of a racist nature in early comics count on deformed figuration it might be worth noting the contrast or novelty.

* finally: for your awards consideration: Porky Pig Vs. Ryan North.
