Class of the Titans

Just received word of this interesting post by Eisner winner Mark Waid (whose current Daredevil run is one of the only interesting things happening at Marvel these days).  He and a number of other comics pros, including Brian K. Vaughan, Scott Snyder, Matt Fraction, Brian Bendis and Gail Simone) are participating in an online course called “Gender Through Comic Books.'” It’s available on Canvas as a free course, and features interactive interviews taking questions via Twitter.

I’m in. Sounds like quite a bit of fun. And it also sounds like a decent follow-up to Lynne M. Thomas and Sigrid Ellis’ Chicks Dig Comics anthology, which is also well worth a read.

Paradise Lost III

As I posted the other day, Viable Paradise is now accepting applications for the fall. In addition, Paradise Lost III still has a few openings left for graduates of Viable Paradise and Taos Toolbox. I’ll be there!  And I’m looking forward to meeting and learning from Mary Robinette Kowal, Lynne M. Thomas and Stina Leicht. Anyone else heading to San Antonio this April?
