Wednesday Links... On Thursday!

I am totally behind on comic news, thanks to a really wonky schedule this week, so I apologize if you've already seen these links a dozen times already.
  • Nicky Brown, granddaughter of Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson, has written up a pair of blog posts on what she's been up to: mainly doing some more digging into her grandfather's past. Part 1, Part 2.
  • TwoMorrows has a free preview available of their upcoming book, Marvel Comics in the 1970s.
  • Botgirl Questi has apparently been busy modifying more comic book art for "nymwars" since I checked in last week. You can see all of the pieces here.
  • Scott Wegener breaks down his drawing process for Atomic Robo.

I bought Marvel in the 60s, but won't be buying this. It's mostly Comtois doing reviews of his favorite comics of the time. Full of personal opinion, which is fine, but without backing it up with research, which makes it look unscientific.

Comtois is, however, a rare case, as in the first he book he constantly praises Steve Ditko evolution as a plotter and artist, especially in Dr. Strange, but is highly critical of Jack Kirby's plot breakdowns.
