[Here's the raw feed of my mindmeld with concept artist Jonathon Keats, whose yeast-based art cloning of Barack Obama and Lady Gaga is making cats mad at Wired. Check out the director's cut of that article here at Morphizm.]
(NOTE: This is Friday night’s final draft, written after the horror in Colorado, which followed the death of a friend Thursday in California. It was an emotional process, so I wanted to post it here for posterity. My streamlined Bat philosophy appears on Wired.)
Anyone who knows anything about Batman knows that his parents were gunned [...]
There are few things I love more than comics and social justice. One is the scoop, and another is a scoop about comics and social justice, starring one of the most insightful minds of this century and last. In the latter department, I recently posted an article at Wired on Alan Moore’s addition to Halo-8′s [...]
It’s hard to believe that My Bloody Valentine’s epochal Loveless debuted 20 years ago today. It’s an unhappy birthday, however. Let’s be honest: There hasn’t been a single album released since Loveless that has been as singular, riveting or identifiable. Disagree? Bring it. Please.
Kevin Shields’ obsessive ingenuity has mythically grown ever since, as those influenced [...]
Billions of dollars change hands in the comics game, which now stretches from last century’s pamphlets and graphic novels to today’s immersive videogames and popcorn blockbusters. The venerable DC Comics changed that game last month with a sprawling reboot of its legendary hero and villain roster. But did its revolutionary relatability upgrade explore any undiscovered [...]
Hollywood is turning into a serious culture vulture scavenging off of existing properties, whose box-office is logically positioned better than films with no previous franchises. It’s a double-edged sword. For every successful Lord of the Rings crossover, there are probably five or more films like Real Steel, which is based on “Steel,” one of the [...]
Lately, I’ve been following the sharp constructions popping out of Paul Cornell’s comics brain. He’s a scribe for the Doctor Who multiverse, but he’s also the mind behind recently invigorating releases like Superman: The Black Ring.
Most importantly, he’s manned two series from DC Comics’ much-hyped but unambitious New 52 reboots: Demon Knights and Stormwatch, both [...]
Frank Quitely’s portrait of Alan Moore is majestically haunting. Thank the Big Bang comics writer C.B. Cebulski took a picture of it.
What can I say? If you don’t know who Alan Moore is, you need to fucking visit Wikipedia, post-haste. Or look at the faces of the fed-up youth of Anonymous wearing Guy Fawkes masks, [...]
For those who don’t live in America, the Fourth of July is our annual celebration of pwning the British, and taking most of North America’s bountiful national resources for our own. We waves flags, set shit on fire and throw down for three straight days at beaches, pools, parties and malls.
And praise our national heroes, [...]
Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns transformed comics into graphic novels, and Batman into pop culture’s most popular superhero. But Miller himself, at right playing a perverted priest in the cinematic adaptation of his postmodern pulp noir Sin City, was so transformed by 9/11′s shock and awe that he wanted to draft The Dark Knight [...]
