Here’s some of the current news about Canadian comic book creators and supporters.
The Hollywood Reporter published an article about Mariko Tamiko taking over the writing duties for the twice-monthly Wonder Woman series starting with issue #759 in June. When asked about her new gig, Mariko said: “Writing for comics is pretty much a dream job full stop. It’s pretty fricking cool. Wonder Woman was the hero I grew up with, she was my little-kid-living-room cosplay. I have always wanted a golden lasso and an invisible jet and I feel like now, writing Wonder Woman, I’m one step closer.”

SyFy Wire interviewed Ed Brisson about his writing duties on New Mutants. When asked about what mutant is his favourite to write, Ed said: “At present, I’m having a ton of fun writing Boom-Boom. I think she often has her own agenda and doesn’t have as much patience as the rest of the team and so is harder to predict. She’s an incredibly cathartic character to write, so I’ll usually save her dialogue for when I’m feeling a little punchy and just go to town.”

Newsarama spoke with Jeff Lemire about his latest series that expands the ‘Black Hammer’ universe. The four-issue mini-series entitled Colonel Weird: Cosmagog starts in April. When asked why he returned to this character, Jeff said: “Weird immediately became my favorite character to write in Black Hammer, and he also seemed to be a real fan favorite as well. And the nature of the character allows for a very expansive story. Weird’s connection to the Parazone allows him to traverse time and space and it seemed like the potential for him is almost infinite. So early on I knew that I would have many more stories to tell with the Colonel.”

SyFy Wire spoke with Jim Zub about his new book Wizards & Spells. Along with writers Stacey King and Andrew Wheeler, Jim continues guiding Dungeons & Dragons fans with a guidebook of magic available March 10. When asked about his favourite spellcasters and their abilities, Jim said: “I think Wild Magic Sorcerers are a ton of fun for both players and Dungeon Masters. The chaotic and unexpected nature of wild magic always provides surprises and livens up a game session. Prestidigitation is a wonderful trip with tons and tons of uses for inventive players. It’s pure magic that can be used in countless role-playing encounters.”
