Links! Tom Spurgeon and Jeet Heer Talk About Things

*I've mentioned Tom Spurgeon's now completed Holiday Interview Series a couple of times on this blog already.  Here's where you can find links to all of the interviews in the series.

*Jeet Heer made some smart comments recently about DC Comics announcement to reprint Sheldon Mayer's Sugar and Spike comics in their controversial "archives" format, comments to which Spurgeon responded, prompting a follow-up post from Heer.  Here's a link to that second post by Heer, where you can also find links to the earlier parts of the discussion.  As someone who is attempting a re-read of the Stan Lee/Jack Kirby Fantastic Four run, I've been thinking a lot about the Big Two's approach to their archival projects and will likely be posting more on this topic in the near future. 

*With all of the great comics currently available, it's astonishing how many unexplored corners still exist.  Just one of the reasons I really enjoy Jeet Heer's "Pay Attention" posts at Comics Comics, like this one discussing the cartoonists of National Lampoon.  Lots of good comments in that post, too, including some from....Tom Spurgeon!
