* you know it's going to be at least a pretty good summer when the first thing you click on rolling out of bed the day after Memorial Day is a lengthy interview with the great Eddie Campbell. Rushmore-level modern comics-maker, Hall Of Fame modern comics talker.
* Sean T. Collins and J. Caleb Mozzocco talk about the WSJ piece on the Avengers movie and creators rights issues. Both talk about the insult lobbed at writer J. Michael Straczynski. I agree with Collins almost word for word how the shot was unfair, although given what I believe to be a lack of generosity Straczynski has shown Moore in some of the public statements he's made about Before Watchmen, I'm having a harder time than usual accessing the indignation necessary to be angry about it.
* there's a Kickstarter page up for an enhanced edition of Dave Sim's High Society. That's the 26th through 50th segments of the 300-segment Cerebus saga and probably the component book for which the comics fans I know have the most affection. I think Sim will have no problem raising the cash for a project like this -- looking again just now (12:30 AM ET), it's already met its goal. The intriguing thing to me is that I don't know that I'm interested at all in any the enhancements or inducements but I could probably use a nice edition of that particular book.
