Creators are fans too
By and large comics aren’t the best-paying gig around for writers and artists, so people who make a living telling comic book stories are primarily doing it for the love of the medium. There’s far less of a dividing line between fan and pro than there is in other entertainment media — in comics it’s always been more of a continuum.
And thus we have some nifty posts by professionals talking about the comics they love.
Colleen Doran discusses the new Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon and, erm, a missing element. Becky Cloonan talks about her love/hate relationship with an old X-Men story as a way of reminding us that "Comics is a teeny TEEENY tiny industry. Anything you say (especially on the Internet) will get back to you." And Chris Weston presents his sugestions of five artists whom he thinks would be perfect for Judge Dredd, and illustrates why.
