January 10, 2013 12:36 am This series (as well as Powers), were the gateway drugs that re-introduced me to world of comics. I fall in the camp that this project is better served via the 13 episode, cable television route a la Walking Dead. However, this cat (whom I do not know) seems to be a quality candidate. Portal: No Escape (Directed by Dan Trachtenberg) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4drucg1A6Xk Things this circa 6 min short showed me. Interesting camera angles Nice use of visuals without dialogue to convey emotions Character empathy (on my part) Looking forward to the next set of news on this project.
December 17, 2012 6:04 pm A la the 3rd Matrix. Which up to this point is still my favourite Superman v Supervillians fight sequence. If you want a Grant Morrison esque take on Superman look to that movie
December 17, 2012 6:01 pm Based off your comment, I still have no clue what you would be looking for. The portion of Superman flying off into the sky was Boss enough for me.
November 14, 2012 11:47 pm I do not know where to begin. PAST Like the Academy awards, does the POTW change what YOUR POTW meant to you? No. So ... ok then PRESENT Have you seen what this book looks like? How the panels are divided up on a page, the colouring that sets a mood and writing that all transports you to a time when Simonson ruled Asgard, but with modern sensibilities? And maybe that's it. That is not the Thor for you (No particular You.. any You). I can respect that. But this #1, in my opinion, just knocked Saga #1 as THE new book of 2012. It is what defines to me an Epic comicbook. A story, whose art is a visual poem, narrating the deeds, adventures and as yet untold consequences of a legendary God. While Saga might eventually lead to that (and what is GREAT ride it is), it does not start as an Epic story, just hints at it for now. FUTURE I am a DC man through and through. Born, raised and bred. Though a year later into New 52, I am struggling with Superman. And though I will always keep the faith. Remender (now defunct XForce); Hickman (defunct Fantastic Four), Fraction (Hawkeye); and THIS GUY - Double A-r-o-n, is making mine Marvel. (Now if Nicolas Refin could direct this first arc...)
October 23, 2012 3:37 am Zero...Zero....zero interest - Pre Trailer. Now. Excitement lifted, and interest piqued - I am there. Is that Guy Pearce's voice on the second half of the narration?

October 22, 2012 11:37 am 'The Death of Captain Marvel' made a 9 year old version of me cry. There was something indeed special about this format and these books. I was an attempting launching point for some series and for others it was just a way for AMAZING creators to do a story without disturbing the flow of a series The Amazing Bill Mantlo; John Byrne; J. M. DeMatteis; Chris Claremont; Frank Miller; Walt Simonson; Michael Moorcock; P. Craig Russell; Charles Vess; Bernie Wrightson; John Buscema; Bill Sienkiewicz Now don't get me wrong. For every 'Amazing Spider-Man: Hooky' there was a 'WolfPack'. Which I remember as essentially a Michael Mann / Outsiders / Warriors take off. The series quickly failed, and while the Graphic Novel most likely does NOT stand up, my love for it will not be deminished. Conversely; The New Mutants made its start with this format. However, the influence of these GN can been see everywhere. Emperor Doom has been tapped in the Purple Man episode of the beloved, and Frankenstein resurrected Avengers cartoon. Personal Favs: The Death of Captain Marvel; Elric: The Dreaming City; Dreadstar, The New Mutants; XMen: God Loves, Man Kills, Star Slammers; Daredevil: Love and War; Alien Legion; Emperor Doom; The Incredible Hulk and the Thing: The Big Change; Cloak and Dagger: Predator and Prey PS - I stll can not allow myself to see the faults that I hear are present in Dune.... any version. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Graphic_Novel
October 17, 2012 11:03 am It is like downloading decades of information on characters that is always on the fringe of my desire to know more. Another excellent job on the article sir
October 16, 2012 4:32 am I saw the Hex in the future storyline as a sign of the times of the 80s. Mad Max, Boy and his Dog, Cherry 2000... whatever I digress. The point is, like DC following the Monkeys fad in the 70s, that time was forgettable and forgivable... if we never mention it again in storytelling. Maybe this is a choice for the right reason. But telling me what this new 52 universe is like in the future is asking for more trouble than staying in the past is worth. Maybe @triplneck is correct and this is just a story arc. Cause Jonah Hex should not go back to the future. Someone please get Huey Lewis out of my head
