Quick News Bits: Nancy Drew, TCAF, Morrison Book

Papercutz, the publisher of the Nancy Drew graphic novels, is hosting an online contest tied into the movie.

One year, I really hope to visit the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, held August 18 and 19, 2007. It won’t be this year, though, because my passport has expired, and I doubt I could get a new one in time.

Sequart.org has announced its first book, Grant Morrison: The Early Years. Timothy Callahan, the author, states that “Morrison is arguably the greatest comic book writer in history”, the kind of hyperbole that makes me itch.

Although it suggests an interesting discussion thread: Who would you give that title?

    The passport requirement appears to have been waved until next year or the following year as the governmental office in charge of passports is so far behind. Imagine that.

    Well, at this point while you don’t need a passport, if you’re traveling by air you need to show that you applied for a passport. Which, of course, she could certainly do in time.

    –Nat (who just applied for his first passport. I’m sadly undertraveled.)

    Speaking of Nancy Drew, I just caught up with the movies they played last week on TCM. What a real hoot a couple of those were.

    Though I found myself kind of uncomfortable with her testing a gun theory with her and Ted waving and pointing a gun out by themselves.

    I’d say the “greatest comics writer” is probably Alan Moore given the variety of genres he covered. Morrison is really great, but I just don’t think he’s had as much an impact.

    Of course I wouldn’t say either of them are the best writers comics have had though.
