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

Newsarama interviewed Jed MacKay about the Black Cat / Spider-Man wedding slated for Black Cat Annual #1. When asked about what it’s like to write for Black Cat, Jed said: “Black Cat has been a blast to write; it’s the kind of book where I get to do the things I love – lots of gags, lots of action, lots of shenanigans, all wrapping up a real heart. Felicia is an amazing character to write, given the space she occupies in the Marvel Universe, and building up her corner of the world and her supporting characters has been a real treat.”

Marvel announced a new project entitled Amazing Spider-Man: Full Circle described as something that will “give Spider-Fans a kind of story that threw out the rules and was born out of a storytelling experiment amongst a team of seven of Marvel’s finest writers. When asked about the issue, Chip Zdarsky said: “Honestly, this was one of the greatest honors of my professional life. To be able to participate in such a project with the industry’s top writers, who I count as my friends, was an absolute thrill. It truly does blow my mind that I’m a small part of such a rarified group of talented creators and I can’t wait for everyone to see the results.”
