Dark Horse Editor in Chief Scott Allie speaking with The Mary Sue about women in comics. Lots more at the link. (via themarysue)
Just part of my fantastic in-depth interview with Dark Horse about women in comics. More to come tomorrow!
Batman A-Go-Go, by Mike Allred, from 2000’s Comicology #2.
Comics Editor Carol thinks about fun, charm and nostalgia while reading The Thrilling Adventure Hour graphic novel:
The Thrilling Adventure Hour is a beacon in a grittily realistic, grimdark pop culture landscape, one guiding lost souls to fun, charm and adventure. And I’m glad to see The Thrilling Adventure Hour adapted from podcast radio play into graphic novel because I like what it portends for fun stories in the future and because charm is something I can use more of in my entertainment and my life.
The Cultural Gutter turned ten in May, 2013 and we didn’t make much of a fuss about it. But ten years ago this week, Jim Munroe posted the manifesto that’s guided The Cultural Gutter, even as each subsequent editor has joined the Gutter and added their take on our mission. We thought this would be a good time to celebrate our mission and republish it. (And congratulations to our friends at the…
Interview with Denys Cowan
“Legendary comic book artist and Milestone Media co-founder Denys Cowan joined CBR executive…
I’m really tired of this general trend I’ve been seeing over the past few months, where people are behaving as though it’s something shameful and terrible to have started reading Marvel comics because they saw the movies.

Romance Editor Chris writes about friendship in stories:
We move through out lives making connections at work, at home, at play. Not all of those relationships are the kind to see you head off a cliff together rather than be parted, but they’re real nonetheless. I’m pretty sure Richard Florida has written at least one book about this. But we don’t need statistics to know it’s true. Lifetime or situational; professional or personal: we live in an ever-changing network of ties ranging from adamantine to momentary.
In short, we have friends.

Comics Editor Carol shares ten comics she liked (and hasn’t written about yet*) in 2013:
t’s an amazing time in comics right now. There are too many good ones for me to even read them all. Comics are like a hydra, but without the decapitation or even really the fighting. (So maybe not all that much like a hydra except I find one comic and then there are 3-6 more I become interested in).
Here are ten comics I haven’t written about. They include the following things: Weird Westerns, the undead, women who bring death, a dog who loves pizza, bros, the Nineties, Jordie Bellaire, Kieron Gillen, queer representation, non-human apes, Sparta, legendary heroes, robots, barbarians, swords, spears, dancing aliens, and many, many ladies.
