The Comic Queen

Zip ribbons and word balloons, Wednesday bliss and Previews dreams. If these phrases mean anything to you, then you're in the right place. But if they don't -- hey stick around anyway. You might just like what you see.

Comics in the News: Week of May 9-16

Here’s a roundup of comics news covered this week in mainstream outlets across the world.

Canadian Artist Turn Operas into Comic Books: Artist Lovern Kindzierski is developing a series of opera-based comic books with writer P. Craig Russell. The goal is to adapt the opera into comic book format in order to make the stories more accessible and reader friendly. Read the full story from CBC.

What's a Graphic Novel?: Writer Jane Henderson explores the phrase "graphic novel" and tries to define it. Read her interpretation on The Dominion.

Graphic Novel Primer: This article is sort of like "Graphic Novel for Dummies". It's kind of a How-to guide for reading the books. Check it out at the Harvard Independant.

Star Wars Obession: This article isn't directly about comic books. It's just so freaky that I had to share it. Eric Negron is a Star Wars Addict. He has tattoos, comic books, and loads and loads of other memorablia. This story is right out of the "At least I'm not this guy" file. Read about Eric at the New York Post Online.

    The article about Eric is no longer available, unless you pay a fee to get it from the NY Post Archives. I actually know Eric - we met once at a convention. The Post article was just hyperbole and fluff leading up to the release of Episode III. He's a nice guy with a cool hobby - collecting Star Wars stuff, getting Star Wars tattoos and making/wearing/selling Star Wars costumes and armor. Not your everyday guy, but no worse (and probably a lot better) than your average hard-core rennie! Plus he broke the loner-geek mold by marrying a cute wife who shares his passions - and that, my friends, is what it's really all about in the long run...
