Popgun Chao$! has a great interview with Mark Waid about Captain Marvel. Specifically, what makes him attractive, what differentiates him from other superheroes, why he’s such a difficult character to build a series around, and why he doesn’t have to be. To no surprise, Waid absolutely nails it.
Kill All Monsters!: The Blog
Remember to bookmark the Kill All Monsters! blog if you like your giant robots and monsters. It’s much more than updates about the webcomic. This week, for instance, I reviewed Skyline and linked to a couple of great, giant monster strips by David DeGrand and Katie Cook.
In this weeks What Are You Reading? column at Robot 6, I talked briefly about Eric Drooker’s lovely and heart-breaking Blood Song.
Food or Comics?
If I only had $15 to spend on comics this week, it would go to Alpha Flight and Salimba, Paul Chadwick’s comic about a pirate-fighting jungle girl. Hit that link to find out what I’d get with more money than that.
What Looks Good for January
This week’s Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs was a look at the cool, new adventure comics coming out in January. Lots of space pulp and Sherlock Holmes, among other awesome things.
You want to see the movie just to watch them outscowl each other.
The next three pages are up at Review2AKill! Things get worse for the humans and we get a peek at a couple of the pilots. Check it out!

I don’t have a real post tonight. Instead I’ve finally updated my Christmas Carol blog. I still haven’t hit on a workable, regular schedule for that, but I’m going to try occasionally skipping a day here to free up time for Dickens. It won’t be every week or anything, so I hope that’s okay.
