Coming Onion issue on comics

This week's Onion, still in the free green boxes for two days, has three articles on the Simpsons. I hear that this coming week's issue is a special comics issue, and that means more than when the New Yorker does one. The issue out late on Weds (I think) should have interviews with Joss Whedon, James Kochalka, Brian Michael Bendis, and Chris Onstad, a story on memorable comic strip deaths, and a short DVD article on Frank Miller's 300 and Tex Avery's Droopy. So be sure to take a copy or five.

BTW, the Books-a-Million chain, of which there's stores in Shirlington and Dupont Circle at least, have a free newspaper, Book Pages, which has a cover story on Naruto anime.

I loved the Bendis story about how he started working at the comic shop in OH!
