We kicked off this week with an interview with the brains behind Citizen Press and the upcoming Johnny Repeat graphic novel, Jason and Elizabeth James.

Lisa Fortuner joined us this week with her new weekly feature, Amateur Art Appreciation, and several other posts, including a recent podcast interview with Gail Simone and the difference between comic book Storm and movie Storm.
Graeme highlighted the similarities in Marvel’s comic plots to what happens in their movies, a recent exchange between Comic Reporter Tom and Marvel’s Aubrey Sitterson, Tom Breevort’s thoughts on continuity, leaked info on a New Frontier animated DVD and Michael Netzer’s new website.

Kevin also brought us news on the biggest comic book movie opening of the summer, comic numbers for May and the latest on the McFarlane/Tony Twist legal battle.
