The Masters

It’s Friday, which means it’s Tucker Stone day. This week, Abhay Khosla takes on Grant Morrison, Tucker Stone takes on Grant Morrison (and David Hine taking on Morrison), and Michel Fiffe takes on the portrayal of Cubans in Garth Ennis’s Nick Fury series.

—Video of the panels from this year’s SPX are already showing up on YouTube. So far we’ve got the Frank Santoro-moderated Jaime Hernandez panel:

And the Dan Clowes panel, featuring Ken Parille and Alvin Buenaventura:

—Various artists, including Clowes and Adrian Tomine, discuss what inspires them with the New York Times. (And surprise—in both cases, it’s neither Hemingway nor even Fitzgerald!)

—Speaking of inspiration, Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez appeared on NPR’s Alt.Latino and talked at length about their favorite music.

—Drew Friedman draws and discusses Bernie Krigstein.

—Paul Constant interviews Ellen Forney on the occasion of her winning the Seattle Stranger‘s “Genius” award.

—Joe McCulloch has some words for Milo Manara.

—As part of Boing Boing’s series on “great graphic novels”, Douglas Wolk talks up Lynd Ward’s God’s Man, and Jim Woodring touts Steve Lafler.

—Old Marvel coloring lore.

Get the look. (Sammy Harkham.)

    Wow, Drew Friedman is doing a “series of portraits of “legends of comic books”. That will make for a beautiful Fantagraphics book one day.

    I’d like a print of “A Real Work of Literature”.
