Jeff Trexler, interim executive director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, pitched to us an essay on strategies for rebuilding an ethical environment at the beleaguered organization. We agreed, so long as its points could be discussed in a follow-up interview. Here is that essay, and that interview.
You have to find a reason when your feet hit the floor, and it would probably be a better one if you didn’t come from the web. But that’s where you are, and you’re about to meet a friend: Clark, who has all the comics news, reviews and points of view from the past week that you could need. Your petty resentments can come with you. They always have before!
Every week, the comics news attempts to defeat Clark Burscough. “There’s no way he can blurb us all”, they say.

It’s time to curl up with the spiciest collection of links this side of a pepper factory explosion where you have to say goodbye to your entire family: it’s comics linking time, with Clark as captain, and the last week of the internet’s comics news, reviews and interviews as your ocean. Get yourself to the oars, which are the links you must click!
