Gilbert Hernandez, Master of The Universe: Fantagraphics’ Flog blog links to a link featuring Hernandez MOTU art, which the blog saw linked to at another site’s blog. Which I am now linking to. Not the original, but the link to the link and the link to the other link to the link. Journalism! Anyway, it’s an awesome piece of awesome art. Even if it makes me realize I am either so old my long-term memory is rotting away, or my knowledge of MOTU characters has been replaced by other, more relevant facts over the decades—Who’s the lizard guy? Whiplash? A Snake Man? And there was a girl Orko? What the hell? I have no memory of this!
And speaking of Fantagraphics: I confess that my first reaction to seeing this 3D rendering of what the publisher’s upcoming Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Vol. 1: Race To Death Valley was to utter a swear word, preceded by the adjective “holy” and followed by an exclamation point.
You know what a a live-action Inhumans movie means, right?: Live-action Lockjaw!
Maybe if DC would have promoted the return of Super-Hip, Doom Patrol wouldn’t have been canceled: Johnny Bacardi proclaims his excitement over the inclusion of obscure DC character Super-Hip in an upcoming issue of Doom Patrol. (How obscure is Super-Hip? He appeared in DC’s Bob Hope comics, which I’d love to see get Showcased some day, and an old Doom Patrol comic, which Bacardi shares. He also teamed up with Batman and Brother Power, The Geek to fight the Mad Mod in the first few pages of an issues of Batman: The Brave and The Bold, the only comic book in which Batman could team up with Brother Power, The Geek and Super-Hip to fight The Mad Mod). Bacardi also talks up Keith Giffen’s Doom Patrol in general. Have any of you guys been reading it? (It’s looming cancellation indicates that too few people were). Is it that good? I tried the first few issues, and dropped it during the Blackest Night crossover—I didn’t much care for the art.
The downside of part of the Comics Comics crew taking over The Comics Journal‘s website?: No more comics Comics Comics.
