I picked up Brief Interviews With Hideous Men at my local library based on the title alone, and thus began a long appreciation of Wallace's work. Sad news.

“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

Straight to the reviews: Nova #7: Top to bottom, I think this is probably the strongest issue of the series so far. And I've thought the series was pretty good up until now. The writing is sharp and the art looks great.
