Comics in the News

Two comics-related stories in the L.A. Times today:

-- Former Superman writer (and politician) Elliot S. Maggin writes an op-ed piece comparing Al Gore to Jor-El. (Parenthetically, I was briefly corresponding with Maggin via e-mail in the early '90's, when we were both on the CompuServe Comics forum.)

-- Eight days after comics artist Alex Toth died, the Times has printed a nice obituary discussing the often-cranky creator and his place in pop culture history.
