Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* this Gretchen Felker-Martin essay about the appeal of the Marvel movies coming from elements of their creation that are less than exemplary has received a great deal of attention and has something to say about that enormously successful series of films. They inform the perception of the comics, at the very least. It's interesting to read analysis tht makes a strong distinction about elements unique to the film because I think the comics have a completely different set of virtues.

* here's an excerpt from Daybreak, Brian Ralph's graphic novel that inspired a TV show of the same now. I don't know anyone that recognizes the comic in the TV show, but I know a lot of people that Ralph makes as much money as possible from the show.

* J. Caleb Mozzocco on War Bears. Eddie Campbell on Screwball! The Cartoonists Who Made The Funnies Funny. Leonard Pierce on This Is What Democracy Looks Like. Noah Berlatsky on Wonder Woman Volume One: The Just War.

* finally: Bill Leak's son Johnnes will fill the cartoonist position at The Australian.
