  • An old signed Jack Kirby badge from San Diego Comic-Con is up for auction. The description claims it's from 1970, but Michael Hamersky points out that it wasn't called "San Diego Comic-Con" until 1973.
  • Marc Tyler Nobleman posted a previously unpublished three-part interview he conducted with Jerry Robinson from 2006. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
  • Ken Quattro addresses the historical question: What was Archer St. John's relationship to Harry Chesler and how did he figure in St. John's entry into comic book publishing? I haven't actually read it myself yet, but Quattro always provides fascinating and incredibly well-researched pieces.
  • If you're close enough to attend classes at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, I might suggest signing up for their newest course this summer, The History of American Comic Books and Graphic Fiction. Although, be forewarned: "Students will be required to read as many as 30 comic books." (Sarcastic emphasis mine.)
  • OK, I know you've read plenty of reviews of Man of Steel, including Mark Waid's, but Mark D. White's thoughts about it are worth a read at too.
  • The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum is looking for a few good docents. Great opportunity if you're in the Columbus area!
