Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Johanna Draper Carlson on Sam Zabel And The Magic Pen. Alec Berry on Crickets #4.

* not comics/by request special: Tom Fowler has a tabletop gaming art book in the crowd-funding stages I've missed until now. It will expire before the column returns, so please go pay attention to it now.

* hey, micropayments chapter 43.

* I guess one of the mainstream-oriented sites is picking favorite Captain America stories. I think with that long run whose uniting factor was the writer Ed Brubaker putting things over the top, there are a ton of pretty readable, fun Captain America comic books: the 1960s Kirby era, the 1970s super-spy stuff, the 1970s bonkers Kirby run, the Roger Stern/John Byrne stuff, and then the Brubakers all spring to mind as being pretty fun books. My favorite is the "Sleeper" story in Tales Of Suspense, I think issues #72-74.

* finally, Mike Lynch notes a Donald Trump's Head On Calvin's Body meme.
