Gene Kannenberg's got his book "500 Essential Graphic Novels: The Ultimate Guide" out - he didn't write or pick all of the entries as the publisher had a strong voice in this - but I'm sure there's plenty to pick a fight with him about it it anyway.
Similarly, Paul Gravett's The Mammoth Book of Best Crime Comics appeared in my comics store today. There's a long interview with Paul on the Forbidden Planet blog.
Buy them both - you won't be sorry.

Posy Simmonds is one of my favorite cartoonists who should be better known in the States (along with Raymond Briggs). My friend Paul Gravett has an excellent interview with her in the new Comics Journal.
Buy it today, and then order Gemma Bovary and preorder Tamara Drewe.
