Our cover this issue spotlights Paul Gravett's extensive and fascinating conversation with one of Britain's national treasures, Gemma Bovary author Posy Simmonds. It's a career-spanning discussion ranging from Simmonds' early days as a compulsive comicker to her career at The Guardian, her children's books, all the way to her forthcoming graphic novel Tamara Drewe. (Click here to read a lengthy series of excerpts from the interview.)

Join Shaenon Garrity for a chat with one of the finest writers currently working in genre comics, Wonder Woman scribe Gail Simone. The two discuss Simone's controversial "Women in Refrigerators" investigation, her unlikely entry into the comics world, her early work for Bongo and Marvel, and her fan-favorite run on such DC Comics titles as Birds of Prey, Action Comics and Welcome to Tranquility. (Excerpts? But of course! Click here to get the inside scoop on the Women in Refrigerators phenomenon!)

Our comics section this issue offers a generous collection of episodes from Otto Soglow's rarely seen, hilariously absurd newspaper strip The Ambassador. (Click here to read part of Jared Gardner's informative introduction to the comics.)

Also: R. Fiore on DC Comics' recent attempts to revitalize such classic characters as Captain Marvel and The Spirit, R.C. Harvey on the impact of legacy strips in the newspaper comics page, and much more. Don't forget to pick up a copy of the best magazine about comics this fine nation has to offer, The Comics Journal!
