The Comics Journal #287 is the latest volley in our war for the liberation of good comics! This issue, Greg Stump talks to Clumsy author Jeffrey Brown about his rise as an art-comics star, his working methods, his forays into superhero and giant-robot comics, and much more. Also, novelist and comics writer Greg Rucka discusses his breakout hit Whiteout, his prose thrillers, working for DC Comics on such titles as Gotham Central and 52, and more with interviewer Andrew Farago. (Farago also checks in with Whiteout artist Steve Lieber.)
Elsewhere in the issue: Our comics section features over 40 pages spotlighting the pre-Krazy Kat comic strips of George Herriman; Tom Crippen examines the life and legacy of longtime Superman editor Mort Weisinger; Tim O’Neil ponders DC Comics’ new online-comics initiative, Zudacomics; Rich Kreiner looks at Picturebox’s Comics Comics; plus news, reviews and much more! Of course we’ve posted excerpts to the TCJ website, in a blatant attempt to whet your appetite for more: Here are selections from the Jeffrey Brown and the Rucka and Lieber interviews, and the first half of Tom Crippen’s Mort Weisinger essay.
