Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* bundled extra: congratulations to the creators on the last issue of Giant Days.

image* Mark Newgarden talks to Drew Friedman. Sanvitti Sahdev talks to Leela Corman. Neil Steinberg profiles Gahan Wilson. Annie Mok talks to Kelsey Wroten.

* I don't really follow the television element of the various superhero "universes" very closely, nor its show-running major players, but the fact that someone can come full circle on the Green Lantern movie interests me a bit. I was sick that year and that film was so poorly received my brother jokingly suggest my body made itself sick so I wouldn't have to see it. It's also interesting to me how durable in a way these properties can be these days in terms of being used for media effort after other media efforts have done poorly, which isn't necessarily a resiliency that media properties used to have, except maybe in the low-stakes world of comics.

* Leonard Pierce on >Americana.

* finally: another day, another controversial Michael Leunig cartoon -- this one about the social media use of young mothers.
