- Professor Armando Maggi from the University of Chicago talks about how the classic myths no longer resonate with contemporary audiences, and how he feels that we need new mythologies to take their place. Ironically, he can't offer any suggestions himself despite the University of Chicago's just hosting a big conference on comic books last month.
- Marc Nobleman has found Athena Finger, Bill Finger's sole heir, and the two of them are interviewed by Tamerlane about her grandfather. Nobleman's biography of Finger will be out next month.
- Dylan Todd designs a new cover system for Marvel's Essentials line. I like the cleanliness of the designs, and they speak well to black and white nature of the reprints, but there's something about them that doesn't quite sit well for me and I can't quite put my finger on it.
- Scott Wilson interviews Will Brooker. Mostly about several aspects of Batman (which goes into more depth, particularly with regard to race, than some of Brooker's recent pieces for the Huffington Post) but also touches on his upcoming webcomic called My So-Called Secret Identity.
- Rick Burchett talks with filmmaker Zak Zych about webcomics in general and Lady Sabre & The Pirates of the Ineffable Aether in particular. There's also a nice sped-up sequence of Burchett taking a page from pencils to completed colors and letters.
