Tuesdays with Mercury 

Drew Johnson, fresh off his very first Spiderman story, is ebaying again. You can see his auctions Here, here,and here.

At Ninth Art, Paul O'Brien has an interesting essay on how the mainstream audience reacts to "real" writers - writers who come to comics from other media. I'd like to see a critic follow up on this. Maybe a look at their comics as part of a larger body of work, or something comparing the approaches of various "real" writers from the same medium.

I'm always glad to see experienced writers work in comics, and I say that as both a reader and a cartoonist. The three most well-reviewed and well-received stories I've worked on (Whiteout,Me and Edith Head, and Family Reunion.) were all written by novelists making their comics debut. That could be a coincidence, but I don't think it is.

Also at Ninth Art, Greg McElhatton has his Things to come article up looking at the new Previews. Dave at Yet Another Comics Blog has a lot to say about it, too.
