§ Laura Hudson previews the just out COMIC FOUNDRY #4 with The Quotable Comic Foundry:
“I didn’t so much become a Muslim as discover I already was one. There is a passage in the Koran that describes a very personal belief I held growing up, one I had never articulated to anyone, and there it was spelled out in this 1,400-year-old document. That, let me tell you, was like getting hit in the face with a shovel. Nothing was the same afterwards.”
-G. Willow Wilson
§ J.K. Parkin interviews Faith Erin Hicks on her just-released THE WAR AT ELLSMERE:
JK: When did you decide you wanted to make comics for a living?
Faith: I … uh, don’t yet make comics for a living. Maybe someday! That’s a question I ask any full-time cartoonist I happen to bump into: how do you make a living wage doing this? So far the answers have been varied. And the term “living wage” gets me laughed at a lot. Not many make a living wage.
§ Darcey McLaughlin at the Miramichi Leader looks at the top five Native American characters in comics:
In fact, there is a great book called Native Americans in Comic Books by Michael A. Sheyahshe that takes a critical look at the role of Natives in comics. Well worth the read.
Still, there are some great Native characters out there that many people may not know about. So today I thought we’d take a look at five of those characters.
