A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD, THE COMICS EDITION

NEIL
Sandman comics creator Neil Gaiman sits down for a video interview (viderview? intervid?) with The London Times to talk about writing his kids book Coraline — in bed.

PETER
A guy in Chicago is going to the slammer for 7 years for passing off a bad cheque to purchase a 1963 Spider Man comic.

GREGORY
The Globe & Mail offers a mini-documentary about Canuck comics icon Seth. (We've got some Seth for you too.)

LUDWIG
In Geist, Robert Everett-Green offers up a review of an out-of-print Ludwig Bemelmans book about life in Europe after WWII, called The Best of Times. Interesting strategy, reviewing o.p. titles. Saves us the bother of going to the book store.

GUY
Jeet Heer looks at Guy Delisle's graphic novel Burma Chronicles in the LRC with a review gleefully titled "Distilling Mute Despair".

JAMES
The London Times' Owen Vaughan sends forth a piece about the real origins of Wolverine.

TOM & COLLIN
Fiona Gruber of The Australian gives us a story about the collaboration between playwright Tom Taylor and illustrator Collin Wilson to create their graphic novel The Example.

CLARK & DON
At Open Letters, Robert Latona muses about that "pair of losers" Superman and Don Quixote.

DOUG
The winners of the Doug Wright Awards for Canadian cartooning were announced last night. And the envelope please...
