Here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.

Artsy published an excerpt from illustrator Kagan McLeod’s new book Draw People Everyday. One selection from the book reads: “As you draw from life, take each part of a figure as it comes and adjust your intentions for your pictures accordingly. Many students make the mistake of going on autopilot after beginning a drawing and end up with a generic mannequin-like figure. Real people aren’t stiff, symmetrical, or flat.”

Marvel interviewed Jed MacKay in time for the first issue of his new series Black Cat. When asked about how he feels being on this book, Jed replied: “I love writing Felicia in her own book for the same reason we love all stories about ingenious thieves and daring scoundrels—Felicia Hardy isn’t a hero or a villain, but a freewheeling adventuress who lives by no laws but her nature, and calls master none but her desires.”
