Con Country

Today on the site:

Chris Mautner interviews the prolific writer George O’Connor. Says Chris:

To my mind one of the most interesting people working in the all-ages field right now is George O’Connor. For one thing, while he’s always been a fan of the medium, he came into the industry sideways, via a series of children’s books, starting off with the best-selling Kapow!

From there, he hooked up with Mark Siegel at First Second and produced Journey Into Mohawk Country, an adaptation of a centuries-old look at Iroquois life that’s perhaps most notable for the way O’Connor attempts to bring a modern sensibility to the story without corrupting the source text.


Apparently there is an enormous comic book convention taking place nearby, but reports are unconfirmed.

-In conjunction with said potential convention, the Jack Kirby Museum is doing some fun stuff, including a big rock show at Maxwell’s on Saturday night. Also, the museum is mounting “Kirby Enthusiasm”, which’ll open at 5 pm at Maxwell’s and features over 50 artists. Full run down on its site.

-Let’s see… I enjoyed these “lost” John Buscema drawings… and we roll into the weekend.
