Trouble with Comics, TWC News with ADD [011011]: "For Old Time's Sake, or something."

TWC News with ADD [011011]: “For Old Time’s Sake, or something.”

* Tom Spurgeon’s Holiday Interview Series kicks it up a notch with an informative chat with cartoonist Dan Clowes.

* Mark Evanier reflects on Saturday’s terrorist attack in Arizona and notes that a liberal commentator has apologized for his strident rhetoric. I have a feeling a similar apology will not be forthcoming today when the Hate Radio gang (Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, etc.) take to the airwaves. In fact, I’d bet you twenty devalued American dollars (oh, why didn’t I invest with Goldline years ago?!?) that those assholes will find some way to be the injured parties in the wake of an event that left six dead, including a 9-year-old girl. Oh, and Bryan Lambert hits a little closer to my own personal feelings about this shooting rampage.

* Christopher Butcher explains the wacky, weird and wonderful work of Evan Dorkin. And since it’s the 21st century and all, here’s a related YouTube video, Welcome to Eltingville (I am still waiting for the collected edition of the comics that inspired the animated pilot).

* Top Shelf announces its 2011 lineup of graphic novel releases.
