The Comics Journal #285 is the latest volley in our ongoing attempt to tear down the stupid portions of the art form and industry and replace them with something finer. This time out, Superman Confidential creator Darwyn Cooke confides in us about his early career in animation, collaborating on Catwoman, re-pioneering DC's superhero mythology in The New Frontier, and providing his current takes on Batman, The Spirit and Superman. Ernie Colón, the artist for the best-selling The 9/11 Report: a Graphic Adaptation, talks about representing one of the defining traumas of our age, as well as working on Casper the Friendly Ghost; Magnus, Robot Fighter; Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld; and his current weekly comic strip SpyCat. The trilogy of interviews in this issue is rounded out with The K Chronicles creator Keith Knight. Purchasing a copy will provide you with many more delights, including the comics section (three hard-boiled, pre-Code John Buscema stories from the bizarre 1950s crime/horror series Wanted), R.C. Harvey on the life and career of Roger Armstrong, Bill Randall on the manga of Kazu Yuzuki, Tim O'Neil on Bryan Talbot's Alice in Sunderland, Simon Abrams on Arvid Nelson's Rex Mundi, Noah Berlatsky on Fumi Yoshinaga's Antique Bakery and much more!

" extraordinary interview with animator/cartoonist Darwyn Cooke. It's one of those long, detailed chats the Journal does so well that makes you want to go re-read everything the subject has ever created... one of the most important, enlightening and entertaining interviews in the magazine this year (or any other)." – Alan David Doane
