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.
Rick Keene has long been the unsung hero of DC's archives program. I'm proud of being the guy who brought him back to the fold. Many Golden (and some Silver) Age Archives would never have seen the light of day without Rick's vision and sense of detail. As I often said when I worked with him "No comic books died" to create those books.
Bring back the columnists.
I second that emotion!
