"In The Comics Journal #286, comics critic and historian Paul Gravett interviews British cartoonist Posy Simmonds. Best known for her weekly strips for The Guardian (such as ""The Silent Three of St. Botolph's"") and her reworking of Madame Bovary and Far from the Madding Crowd (Gemma Bovary and Tamara Drewe, respectively), the pair also discuss other aspects of her wide-ranging career, such as her children’s books and her strip ""Literary Life."" Also in this issue: a career-spanning interview with Gail Simone, who recently left her long and well-received run on the super heroine-team book Birds of Prey to tackle the newly revamped Wonder Woman title. She will also talk about her work on series such as Villains United, Superman, and Killer Princesses, and her “women in refrigerators” website. Also in this issue are insightful comics reviews and columns, and a comics section featuring Otto Soglow’s The Ambassador."
