- Dan Hipp has a few more artworks up, including this one on September 11:
- The Wall Street Journal has an interview With Michael Chabon about his forthcoming Children’s Book “The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man”. Here’s the cover and an excerpt:
How did you come up with the idea for Awesome Man, who has amazing physical strength but gets tired and cranky sometimes?
This was a story that I wanted to write for him. He’s at the age when, boys in particular, you get into kindergarten and it becomes much more important that you know how to control your body and strength, to restrain yourself and hold yourself back. He was working through a lot of that stuff and occasionally struggling with it. Part of the recipe of a four or five-year-old boy is superheroes and fascination with superheroes. They want to wear costumes all the time. They’ll wear their costumes to school. Part of what makes a superhero a superhero is the ability to use his body and have this incredible power and strength. It seemed like the superhero was a perfect figure to create a little story about someone who needs to control his power and recognize the limits of his power.
- Terry Moore reports his new art book, ‘Hot Girls, Cold Feet’ will be out in time for Christmas. Here’s the cover:
- Warren Ellis reports that SKV (by Warren Ellis & D’Israeli) has been reprinted. He’s also getting got friends to do three Panel comics each day this week. here’s one from PJ Holden:
- Jeff Lemire was interviewed by USA Today about Frankenstein: Agent of Shade. Here’s an Excerpt:
Lemire's plan for the book is to have three- or four-issue story lines with one-off Frankenstein solo adventures in between that show him at different points in the 20th century. The writer has him going to Vietnam in one, and facing off with Al Capone in another.
"We discover that he was actually history's hidden hero, where he's been around and active — and S.H.A.D.E. has, as well — for the entire 20th century but no one really knew," he says.
"As we do that, I also want to get deeper into his origin and see what makes this monster basically want to protect humanity. We probably would fear him if we knew he existed."
- JH Williams III has been counting down to the release of Batwoman with a new artwork every day. Here’s Mondays:
