Heroes Con was lovely, as I finally got to interview some people in person:

Did an interview with Fraction’s artist, Barry Kitson, that should run later this week.

From the Independent Weekly:

 FANTASTIC FOUR 2: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER—This sequel to the 2005 superhero adaptation is like being trapped in a room with a bad comedian for an hour and a half—though the fact that the film is only 90 minutes is immensely appealing in this summer of nearly three-hour sequels. No opportunity for a lame quip, pun and/or sight gag is missed in this retelling of a classic 1960s Stan Lee/Jack Kirby comic book. The story pits the dysfunctional quartet against the titular surfer (Doug Jones from Pan’s Labyrinth with Laurence Fishburne’s voice), the alien herald for a planet-devouring entity called Galactus&mash;who’s reduced from the armored titan of the comics to an inane-looking death cloud. Along with corny humor and dull effects, the pace is slowed by subplots about wedding woes and power-swapping. While not as offensively dumb as the first Fantastic Four film, the lack of tension and cliched dialogue will have fans of the comic pining for the cosmic melodrama of the original story. Rated PG. —ZS

Writer Tom Sniegowski has a new children’s book series, BILLY HOOTEN: OWLBOY coming out in July.  It features illustrations by Eric Powell (THE GOON).
