Jim Lee

“I gather that ‘Jim Lee’ is something of a ‘man about town’ in the world of… drawing things, whatever their people call it.

Arts will be fine without Bulte

“As a resident of Parkdale-High Park, and one who toils in and for the arts, I can tell you quite emphatically that I, and many others, will not miss Sarmite Bulte. She was unresponsive to her (thankfully former) constituency and completely out of touch with the needs of those she was supposed to represent. Her ‘dedication’ to the arts was conveyed with a sense of noblesse oblige mixed with an autograph-seeker’s thirst for celebrity culture. The arts will do fine without her.” Dr. David Kinahan, in a letter to the Toronto Star

All-Star Superman

“No one has ever done Clark Kent to Superman; showing the difference between these two guys. And Frank can do it. He can do the body language in a way you’ve never seen it.

We’ve never seen it before in 70 years of Superman.” Grant Morrison, on All-Star Superman artist Frank Quietly
