Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Rachel Gould talks to Jessica Campbell. Paul Tumey talks to Michael Tisserand. Abraham Riesman profiles Steve Ditko.

* TV's Penguin for the win.

* not comics: so apparently Twitter has new anti-harassment tools. I'm rarely harassed on-line, nor am I a likely target for harassment, so it's hard for me to even posit a guess as to whether this suite of policies will be enough. I'm guessing not. According to my experience, the culture that is the immediate context for harassment-style abuse has to make stopping it a value for any tool or tools to work, and I'm not sure we're there yet, either. No one should be harassed on-line, and the people more likely to be harassed have every reason to be angry with Twitter for its start-and-stop attitude towards this. We all should be. I wish I had the confidence necessary to believe this will eventually be done no matter what; without that, we must continue to pay attention at every step.

* Marc Bernardin writes about the baseline treatment of one's fans and potential fans.

* Cory Doctorow on Ghosts.

* finally, I can't recall seeing Jim Blanchard's drawing of Larry David before now.
