Perhaps Noah Van Sciver should stop at Step Two: The cartoonist shares his six (or seven-ish) part plan for the future (Via Flog)
Is this the cover of Bluewater’s next Fame celebiography comic?: No, no it’s not. It is Bill Murray as drawn by Daniel Clowes though. (Via Flog again…maybe you guys should ignore me and just go read Flog, since I’m totally biting all their content this morning)
This makes me sad: Has DC Comics canceled Billy Batson and The Magic of Shazam (just when it was getting good , too!) and Batman: The Brave and The Bold (Now what am I going to do with my pitch for an 18-page story where Batman and Dr. 13 track down Batsquatch?!), because the kid-friendly Johnny DC line is on the way out, and they’re getting out of the comics for kids business? I’m hoping it doesn’t; there’s a small industry trade show going down in California this week, and word of future plans might come out of it. I’m hoping they replace the monthly Batman: The Brave and the Bold with a monthly Batman: The Brave and the Bold 80-Page Giant. Fingers crossed!
You guys should probably just bookmark Bully’s blog: That way, if I forget to post something like, say, the next installment of his Thor-meanders-around-America-like-What’shissuperface, you won’t miss out on anything awesome.
“Unlike Catwoman, this bad-ass knows that the all-leather look is so yesterday, so she’s switched it up with some sleek cashmere pieces”: Is that true? Is the all-leather look so yesterday? Does Darwyn Cooke need to design another new Catwoman costume, out of cashmere?
“Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Finest Hour”: Is the National Post the first institution to use that fairly obvious but rather clever headline? If so, they’ve put it over a nice, thorough article on O’Malley, Scott Pilgrim, the final volume, the upcoming movie and the phenomena. Here’s another article, from the Winnipeg Free Press, and here’s one from USA Today.
I’m not sure I’d want to read any of as graphic novels: Paste suggests “Eight Literary Works That Deserve a Graphic-Novel Treatment.” The one I would have been most curios to see would have been The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, but all of Dark Horse’s Escapist comics have already answered the question of what Escapist stories from different eras might have looked like.
