Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

“The comic industry in 2015 is a very, very different place and a big part of that is thanks to Image Comics’s tireless efforts to show retailers and readers the strength of new ideas and new stories.”

This dive into the economics of creator-owned comics, and how they’ve changed over the years and are impacting the market, is fascinating (and it has charts for the stats nerds among us!)

“It’s just been a blast,” Wilson says. “We really got no directives besides ‘Pick your team and go nuts.'”

G. Willow Wilson talks A-Force and Ms Marvel with NPR, and while we don’t get a lot more information about A-Force, it’s still an interesting read.

“Though he was previously on the fence about his mutant future, actor Hugh Jackman seems to have healed from his aversion to playing Wolverine.”

My love for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is well-documented in poetry, so I’m glad it looks like he’s in for more movies. At some point, I could dig Hugh as Old Man Logan.
