Weekend Reading: Spider-Man, Cyberforce, and Norm Breyfogle
This is the week where the comics industry slows down for a couple of days as everyone saves their big news for Comic Con International in San Diego. That gets going on Wednesday evening - Preview Night - and you can expect the announcements to start flying faster than anyone can cut and paste a press release, and everyone's abuzz with their favorite version of the four Spider-Man movies.
For now, though, the internets still have some things to read:
A weather-battered Beau Smith looks at Spider-Man.
Longbox Graveyard also has a look at Spider-Man, of the Steve Ditko era.
Hero Complex reports the return of Marc Silvestri’s Cyberforce, with the words “Kickstarter” and “free” as part of the launch equation.
Trash Mutant interviews one of my favorite comic book artists, Norm Breyfogle.
Steven Thompson (aka Booksteve) enjoys the heck out of American Newspaper Comics-An Encyclopedic Reference Guide by Allan Holtz.
Cartoonist Donna Barstow is taking on the internets, and also the people reporting that Donna Barstow is taking on the internets.
The Space 1970 blog looks at a forgotten DC comic, Star Hunters, that featured art by Don Newton.
You know who’s got a book out with a great title: Tom McLean and his Mutant Cinema. Tom blogs at Bags & Boards and always has interesting stuff to say!
And because I will always link to something about Monty Python, here’s a short comment from Michael Palin on the late Eric Sykes.
That's it for this week! Enjoy your internets responsibly!
