No regularly scheduled update of Grant Morrison's run on the JLA comic today. Instead, I present an interview with somebody who knows a lot more about the subject than I do. Geoff Klock, author of How To Read Superhero Comics And Why discusses the JLA along with the relationships between text and subtext, hair and baldness and J'onn (Martian Manhunter) J'onzz and David (Angel) Boreanaz.I forgot to mention in the interview that I found out about Morrison's Alan Moore-Manhattan Guardian connection because Morrison himself told my friend Brad Winderbaum (www.thefuturistmovie.com) when they met in LA. Actually many of my comics observations here are spun out of my weekly conversations with Brad, as was the suggestion to do a blog in the first place; blogs don't generally have an acknowledgements page, but if they did Brad would be at the top, as would Sara Reiss, my partner and website designer.
