* Cecilia D'Anastasio provides an update on the once white-hot issue of scanlation, talking to scanlators trying to go legit and taking a snapshot of how that specific act dances in and out of the health of that market segment more generally.

* Christopher Borrelli profiles Jill Thompson.

* Augie De Blieck Jr. does close readings of certain comics pages and here takes on work from the Mark Waid/Mike Wieringo partnership on Fantastic Four, a well-remembered series run. Wieringo will have been dead 10 years this mid-August.
