Comix Talk for Thursday, January 21, 2010

I think I’ve officially run out of stupid headlines for daily blog posts… thank you to everyone who gave me advice about webhosts and website software this week.

INTERVIEW: The New Yorker has an interview with comics writer Neil Gaiman. Congrats to Neil on his recent engagement.

REVIEWS:  El Santo reviews Lily of the Valley, a webcomic about a serial killer.  A mixed review – I noticed however, that the artwork reminded me a bit of Faith Erin Hick’s work.  There’s also a glowing review by The Trades of Kazu Kibuishi’s Copper book

THE PROBLEMS WITH DEAD TREES:  Comics Worth Reading writes about Disney’s decision to let the first volume of Jellaby go out of print.  The downsides to getting involved with multinational corporations…

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 BLOGS:  Drawn! blog links to Jake Parker, creator of Missile Mouse, writing about fixing inking mistakes old school style (i.e. without Photoshop).  I haven’t read it yet but both of my kids have read the new Missile Mouse graphic novel and loved it.
