Death of USNWR lets Spurgeon dig up Richard Thompson's comics history

Tom Spurgeon looks at the end of US News & World Report through a peculiarly comics lens - he gets Richard Thompson to comment on his time working for them -

USN&WR Ending Its Print Iteration.
Comics Reporter (November 8 2010).

If you're not reading The Comics Reporter, you should be. It's one of three comics blogs I read every day.

OT: Spurgeon's Batton Lash interview

I always enjoy the new Supernatural Law comic and Batton is one of the nicest guys you'd want to meet at a con. I usually try to buy anything new he's got at SPX, and this year got a guidebook to Supernatural Law while my daughter got some of the Archie comics he's writing. Here's a new interview with him by Tom Spurgeon:

Beaty on Hajdu's 10-Cents

Bart Beaty's written the first of three responses to David Hajdu's 10-Cent Plague. Bart did much of his research for his book on Wertham at the Library of Congress while living off Dupont Circle one summer, and I was able to provide him one article on Psychology of Comics that he hadn't previously seen.

Richmond's Chris Pitzer interviewed

Chris runs Adhouse Books in Richmond and has published some lovely stuff recently including books on Paul Pope and James Jean. Chris is a regular at SPX which is where I got to know him better this year, especially at the underattended Matt Wagner signing at Big Planet comics. He publishes absolutely gorgeous books. Check out Tom Spurgeon's "CR Holiday Interview #8: Chris Pitzer," Comics Reporter (January 4 2008).
Then go buy those two books in particular.

Tom Spurgeon memorializes SPX

Tom's posting links for what he calls "Collective Memory," a nice term. Since it's a local event, I'll just link to his Memory.

Boy, that "link to his Memory" sounded depressing, didn't it? It's not. As an archivist (professionally) and comics bibliographer (dilettante), it's very interesting to see how information sharing is evolving.
