COMICS

Artist Matthew Roberts illustrates the January issue of The Slate Book Review.

Writer Chris Sims at Comics Alliance penned a lot of words about Stan Lee’s actual legacy. 

Ed Brisson (‘Sheltered,’ ‘Comeback,’ lots more) is putting together new scripts for ‘Murder Book,’ which is awesome, and I wrote about it for PopMatters a while ago.

Anatomy of a cover: ‘Moon Knight’ (1983), artist Bill Sienkiewicz.

NYT talks to comics creator Vishwajyoti Ghosh. The Comics Journal chatted him up, too.

Critic Jared Gardner on four 2013 graphic novels/comics that he’ll “read, teach, & write about for years.” (via The Comics Journal)

BOOKS

Hemingway “made the fiction true, including the fiction of himself, and then struggled to keep up with it.” (London Review of Books).  I wrote about Ernest Hemingway’s days as a reporter a while back.

FILM/TV

Emily Nussbaum on the unfulfilled promise of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ adaptation. Great discussion, as usual, but I feel good about where Season Four is headed, if a little disturbed about my steadily strengthening tolerance for blood and gore.
