Top 10 lives! I haven't read any official announcement for "Top 10 season 2" but artist Gene Ha states, "I've started work on writer [and layout artist] Zander Cannon's new Top 10 series. My run will be at least four issues." Letterer Todd Klein confirms that it's been in the works since 2006 on his blog. This is exciting stuff- I'm glad to hear that the original team is back working on the book (sans Alan Moore, of course).
I never read it but the Top 10 mini-series without the original creative team always seemed a bit sacrilegious to me.
Update 09.21.08- Thanks to Gene Ha for directing me to the DC comics page for Top 10 season 2! Can't wait for October 1st! I'm still stunned that a bigger deal hasn't been made yet...

Mitchell Hooks remembers his art direction for the first James Bond movie poster.
"Yeah, it's actually kind of funny: I don't think they had any idea at the time just what a valuable property they had. They actually said to me, 'Don't worry too much about likenesses on this one -- this just has a couple of unknown actors [Sean Connery and Ursula Andress] from England in it' !"More from Mitch at Today's Inspiration- a blog that really lives up to its name.
This series was the first time I've read comics that felt like instant classics, not as a result of some gimmick or stunt, but based on the power of the storytelling alone.
Thanks, Grant. Thanks, Frank.

Chris Bachalo website! But...is it official? "Yes, it's a website with my name on it, authorized by me, owned by me (I think) and hosted by me," Bachalo assures. The fan favorite X-men artist launched the site at the end of July.
