The bad news is that local author G. Willow Wilson's Vertigo comic, Air, is coming to a close with issue #24. Wilson says that she'll be able to end the series in the way she intended, it will just be shorter than she originally intended (earlier interviews have suggested that Wilson wanted Air to run for roughly four years or so).

I wasn't so crazy about the artwork in Air, but I appreciated that it wasn't your standard Vertigo Comic—by which I mean it wasn't a Sandman knockoff. It's a powerful, Pynchonesque conspiracy book about air travel, forgotten countries, and Amelia Earhart, and while it's taken a while for the book to really get its footing, there's nothing else quite like it on the stands. This is a shame.

The good news is that Wilson's (prose) memoir about converting to Islam, The Butterfly Mosque, will be released from Grove on June 8. I'm excited to read it.
