  1. I’m not sure, was Josh evoking Lindelof’s name in defense of the ambiguous ending as example of someone who know how to do it well?

  2. I have been saying it for years, for books in a shared universe or a line of multiple titles an editor needs to be a type of creator.
    If you simply are a liaison that makes the trains run on time there is a fair chance that book won’t be all it can be creatively.
    When we look at some of the best runs historically there are of course talented writers and artists collaborating, but not to be understimated in that creative process is a talented editor.

  3. Top show as ever.

    What I really liked on the Batman: The Detective art front was that inker Sandra Hope joined the series – Andy Kubert’s work is much better when inked by someone else.

  4. Chris Schwiezer (The Six Sidekicks) is an amazing artist. I love following him on Instagram – his watercolors are … unreal.

  5. Do you think that GoDaddy misses you?

    Do they txt sometimes in the middle of the night?
