Comix Talk for Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Sean Collins has an "aha" moment reading a recent interview with Meredith Gran, creator of Octopus Pie.  Yeah, webcomics has its own center of gravity and there's a whole generation of creators and readers who've grown up in that gravity well.

CONVENTION: Brigid Alverson files a report on the recent annual American Library Association meeting — lots of graphic novels in the mix.

INTERVIEW: The Avoid the Future blog (great name for a blog!) interviews Box Brown on the release of his third Everything Dies book. (h/t Journalista!)

REVIEWS: El Santo covers Wendy Pini's Masque of the Red Death and Lauren Davis reviews The Meek.

HYPE: Justin Madson just released the fifth book in his self-published Breathers series – it's available at his website. Below is a short trailer for the series (dramatizing a scene from the first book) which has shots of the comic interspersed in the live action.
