Here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.
Newsarama spoke recently with Chip Zdarsky about the end for Marvel’s Invaders. When asked about his reaction to the title reaching its conclusion, Chip said: “Yeah, issue 12 is the end. Honestly, I’m super grateful we got a full two arcs to tell this story and I think the whole team really managed to stick the landing. Marvel’s been incredibly supportive of the book, so hopefully Invaders will return in the near future.”

Comic Book Resources interviewed Jeff Lemire about the upcoming Family Tree series. When asked why he decided to start the storyline on March 14, 1997, Jeff said: “The onset of technology, specifically cell phones, would make certain details and aspects of the story that I want to tell very difficult. I know that’s not a very specific answer, but I don’t want to spoil what’s coming. In general I find that cell phones and the internet don’t fit well into a lot of my stories. I’m not sure why that is, maybe I like how much more disconnected characters can feel without them.”
