Weekend Reading: Atlas, Dick Tracy and Cowboys & Aliens

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Interviews, Reviews, TokyoPop,

PhoenixIt’s the weekend and I have just one word for you: Winning!

Now let’s see what you’ve won:

Tie-In: I missed this: Apparently Scott Rosenberg’s Cowboys & Aliens has been reissued by It Books, a division of HarperCollins.

Plainclothes: If you’re a fan of Dick Tracy or Joe Staton, you might already know that there’s going to be a change in your newspaper on March 14. Mike Curtis and Staton will be the new team on Dick Tracy, and here’s a little profile of them, courtesy of their syndicate.

Atlas: If you remember the old Atlas/Seaboard comics of the 1970s or just love a good comic book retrospective, mark your digital calendar for March 11. Geppi’s Entertainment Museum is hosting “Atlas At Last,” which also ties in with the relaunch of the company’s characters from Ardden. Check it out!

Wulf: And speaking of the Atlas relaunch, here’s a review of one of the titles I’ve been waiting for: Wulf The Barbarian, written by Steve Niles.

Honey: Paul Bishop at Bish’s Beat offers up a peak at Honey West #3 from Moonstone Books, the start of a new storyline, written by my friend Elaine Lee and illustrated by Ronn Sutton.

Hogan: Over at Hogan’s Alley, my old pal Tom Heintjes interviews one of the best cartoonsists working today: Tom Tomorrow.

Plop: Will the last person to leave Tokyopop please turn out the lights and return the creators’ rights?

Together: John Zipperer at Weimar World Service follows Fangoria and notes how the new editor is finding ways to make his print magazine desirable in the age of the internet.

Awards: Jonathan Ross wins some kind of British award. The article mentions everything about him except his comic book work. Slackers.

RIF: You can’t get a new generation of comic book readers if reading programs lose their funding. Read what Gawker has to say on the subect and how easily you can help stop what’s about to happen.

And finally, fans of Monty Python, The Rutles and the Bonzo Dog Band might get a kick out of this short interview with Neil Innes. I did, despite the jerky camera work and the overbearing background music and hey, get off my lawn!

Now use your internets responsibly!
