Weekend Window-Closing Wrapup
It’s been a good election, you all deserve a reward:
And with that, let’s close some windows:
* Robert Grandt, a librarian at Brooklyn Technical High School, was fined $500 for violating ethics codes by recommending his daughter Eve’s Shakespeare’s Macbeth — The Manga Edition as the book of the month.
* This one’s for Amy: Seth Green talks about comics, movies, Robot Chicken, and The Freshmen. And amazingly, he doesn’t want to direct.
* And speaking of Freshmen: Freshman for Life brings us the 24-hour comic, Blotchmen.
* Fundamentalists shaken by election losses have taken to writing science fiction.
* Wendy Everett, inspiration for Daredevil.
* I complain when I have to retouch a few dozen pages for reprints. Rich Keene has done almost 12,000.
* A bit late on this one, but ComicMix alumni Rick Marshall interviews various comics writers about who their characters would vote for. Oddly, none of them voted for Stephen Colbert.
* And finally, there’s nothing more surreal than reading a blog and finding out you’ve been laid off from a company you co-own.
