In a bit of synchronicity, this interview of Sprouse just appeared online. Disregard the typos. It's pretty good!
And Sprouse was set to do a Superman story, he says, but it was canceled.
My favorite quote: "It was very easy to break in: I simply mailed sample pages to DC Comics and they called me two weeks later! "

Artist Chris Sprouse has a very appealing style. Simple, clean and really elegant line work, expressive faces, terrific page design, smart sexy ladies, powerful men, scary villains — Sprouse does it all and makes it look easy.
He's currently working on a new series featuring Tom Strong, the character he co-created with Alan Moore.
I ganked the above image from his website which is well worth a visit.
Wouldn't it be great if Chris Sprouse regularly drew Superman? I sure think so.
Wayne Boring + Curt Swan + Kurt Schaffenberger = Chris Sprouse. That's how I figure it, anyway.

The great American artist and writer, S. Clay Wilson is recovering from profound brain injuries suffered during a fall, late last year. While still able to draw, he is illin' and chillin' at home under the care of his partner, the resolute and faithful Lorraine Chamberlain.
Wilson requires constant care and donations are needed. Yours would be nice.
If you ever read classic and wondrous S. Clay Wilson strips like the The Checkered Demon, Ruby The Dyke or my favorite, Captain Pissgums, please fork over some money right now. Click on the above image or right here to go to his site to donate a few bucks.
And if want to learn more about this American original, here's the straight poop. More here. (Photo below is Wilson and Lorraine.)

And Warren Ellis finished the script two years ago, so let's all chill!
In the meantime...
According to Ellis, Cassaday turned the art in to DC to publish!
You can order the final volume here.

I joked about it once too often, so Warren Ellis doesn't love me any more (if he ever did), but you can't blame him. He turned his script in a year and a half ago. Artist John Cassaday is said to be working on the final issue of one of the greatest series in comics, Planetary, so it may be out soon.
More clues: In the latest books from Wildstorm, DC's imprint that publishes the series, Editorial Director Jim Lee writes: "Finally, the project I'm most looking forward to in ’09 is the final issue of PLANETARY by Warren Ellis and John Cassaday. It's been a wild ride from beginning to end and I look forward to reading the whole series through one day, but you know what they say about all good things."
And the final hardcover collection is scheduled for July, so...

SEAGUY: THE SLAVES OF MICKEY EYE #1
Written by Grant Morrison
Art and cover by Cameron Stewart
In 2008 alone, superstar writer Grant Morrison killed Batman, put the entire DC Universe through its FINAL CRISIS and concluded the unanimously beloved ALL-STAR SUPERMAN. But what does a writer who’s written every significant Super Hero do when he can create any Super Hero he wants? The answer, of course, is SEAGUY! Morrison (THE INVISIBLES) rejoins original SEAGUY artist Cameron Stewart (SEVEN SOLDIERS) in an all-new adventure starring the cult-favorite character!
In Seaguy’s cartoon future world, everyone is a Super Hero and no one dies. It’s absolutely perfect...Or is it? In this follow-up to the cult 2004 miniseries, Seaguy resurfaces with a sinister new partner, a hatred of the sea and a rebel restlessness he can’t explain. Why are Doc Hero and his ex-archenemy Silvan Niltoid, the Alien from Planet Earth, whispering strange equations? Why is Death so useless? And can that really be the ghost of Chubby Da Choona mumbling uncanny warnings and dire prophecies of ultimate catastrophe?
When the grotesque powers lurking behind the corporation known as Mickey Eye and the Happy Group attempt to erase Seaguy’s entire existence, can he possibly get it together in time to save a world so far gone it can’t even imagine the horror lying in wait? Find out here in Morrison’s own personal reframing of the Super Hero concept for the 21st century.
