Through the Mail Slot


A couple of interview links, and some e-mail…
First, the interviews:
Scott Harris, longtime Avengers fan and newish blogger, has been doing some short industry interviews, and has done one with me:
The Vault: Seven Questions with Kurt Busiek
And Gail Simone, writer, raconteur and bon vivant, has launched a new Wonder Woman focused discussion board over at Comic Book Resources, where people are celebrating all aspects of the Amazing Amazon’s storied history. She’s lined up some terrific interviews, with the likes of Mindy Newell, George PĂ©rez, Trina Robbins and others, and I’m happy to be an “other”:
Five Wonder Questions with Kurt Busiek
And the mail…
From Scott Rowland:

Regarding the possibility of “Deluxe Editions” similar to those for Ex Machina and other series, I’d prefer to see the continuation of the hardcover format already in use. They look great, and the anal retentive comics fan in me would hate to see a different size being used for any future releases.
Just my two cents.
Oh, I wouldn’t think that any new-format editions of Astro City would replace the existing formats, Scott, whether they’re Deluxe editions or Absolutes or Omibuses or whatever the latest packaging sensations are. I think you can remain confident that you’ll continue to see hardcovers and trade paperbacks like those we’ve been doing all along, and any new format would be in addition to, not instead of the existing ones.
From Eric Sellers:

I’m glad to hear Astro City is going to be on a monthly schedule.
Also a follow up question to one I asked years ago in the letter column. Will we get a new steady trade dress/logo on the title now that it’s going monthly?
We’ll get a steady trade dress, Eric, but whether it’s new or uses one of the logos we’ve already got, I don’t know yet. I like the volume 2 logo a whole lot. Then again, I like some of the alternate logos J.G. has done, too…
If anyone out there has strong opinions, feel free to let us know.
