Weekend Reading: Alex Toth, Nick Fury and Doug Wildey
Greetings and welcome to the weekend. Let's read!
Toth: Animator Michael Sporn showcases a lot of great Alex Toth art from Dell Comics. Bonus: includes side-by-side comparisons of Toth’s b&w pages with the much lower-quality printed copies. Nice.
Bunn: Chris Arrant at Collecting Comic Books has a nifty interview with Cullen Bunn, writer of the upcoming Fear Itself: The Deep.
Cap: Novelist James Reasoner reviews The Trial of Captain America: “Under Brubaker’s guidance, Captain America continues to be one of the best comics out there today.”
Cartoons: Cartoonist Dan Rosandich gets himself a shout out from the Los Angeles Times Pressmens 20 Year Club.
Comics: We all knew that Nick Fury was a Sergeant and an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Did you know he was a fan of the comics? Mike Sterling reveals all.
Pie: British comic, The Dandy, takes a look at the world’s least favorite pie.
Doug: Scoop takes a quick look at the legendary Doug Wildey (Rio; Jonny Quest).
And finally, John Scalzi (Fuzzy Nation) writes about how he’s incorporated lessons learned from movies into his novels. File it away under “Valuable Writerly Advice.”
Now use your internets responsibly!
