    May 12, 2021 11:53 am Nice discussion. I found this show somewhat entertaining, but it felt a bit to teenager target show, especially the characters. It was a good adaptation, I just feel the source material isn’t that strong. Nowadays we have so many deconstructions of the generic superhero story with was probably started by Watchmen, but Invincible was the less interesting comic, The Boys is well done probably the best adaptation, Jupiter’s Legacy is probably my favorite comic in that style, but the show was bad. Also the animation was, ok, I always look back to 90’s Japanese tv shows, and they all are somehow superior, they were able to make miracles with the tools available, just look at Cowboy Bebop,Trigun, Escaflowne, Berserk, Evangelion, Memories. They all became classics. There are some gems that pop now and then, Love Death + Robots has some beautiful episodes, second season will air Friday, you could do a show about the episodes, that would be super interesting. An amazing 2021 for everyone
    April 27, 2020 6:18 am @Invincipal in the las JL book Vol.2 number 05 from 2017 it says “End of Book Two - Jupiter’s Requiem begins – 2019” I remember reding in the letters Millar saying something like he learner he’s lesson and that he only releases books when they are almost finished, so I assume his waiting for Quitely to finish most of the art. @saxman69 I got most of the Mangas from amazon some years ago, they are all published by Dark Horse in the west, in Europe it’s that or comiXology, I think
    April 26, 2020 11:49 am Thank you for your podcasts, always good to hear your ideas. Interesting show, two aspects caught my attention, one was your analyses of an old comic comparing it with present interpretation and expectations, that would actually be an interesting show on its own. The other aspect is something I’ve been thinking a lot for some years now, the comics done in America, that I most enjoy are all somehow abandoned, Jupiter’s Legacy, Southern Basterds, Goddamned, Nowhere Men, Saga and more that I don’t remember, this very sad and it seems only the Batmans and Spider Mans comics tend to survive. You mention Rick Remender, and I’ve read a lot of he’s books, but I don’t think he’s stories are at the same level as the ones I’m referring. At the same time, I’m discovering very unique Manga, “Eden - It’s An Endless World!” And “All-Rounder Meguru” by Endo Hiroki what a discovery I highly recommend. Also “I am a Hero” by Kengo Hanazawa super interesting manga, I dropped Walking Dead comic because it felt to me like a very constrained project, for many reasons, Kengo Hanazawa went all the way. Stay safe, and please don’t inject disinfectant haha
    December 17, 2019 1:16 pm Nice show as always, I haven’t listened to it all, only the media I consumed, I will be listening to the rest during the week. Where is Watchmen? You have Yellowstone and not Watchmen the hell, just kidding I assume you are waiting for the final episode. Cheers and happy new year I just have to say I loved Fall; or, Dodge in Hell book, it took me like a week or two to finish, and unlike you spoiler – spoiler - spoiler - spoiler – spoiler - spoiler I loved the matrix part, and found somewhat boring the real world part, it was really interesting the contrast between real and virtual, the way they were using technology to render the virtual reality was very cool, the scheming from the enterprise guy to became god in the new world was very well done. I love the firmament moment, things dissolving into chaos It had its contradictions, like they were only artificial copys, not real people, that concept is avoided by the writer. On the other hand, The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.: book was the most boring book I actually finished in my entire life, it took me 1 year to finish, I was always thinking I’m going to stop reading this, but I had a feeling something inventive was going to happen, an extraordinary idea, but nope just pure uninteresting ideas, I felt when I was in collage and had to study for a law exam, it was that bad.
    December 19, 2017 5:33 pm Hehe always fun to hear your podcasts, I just want to share some thoughts. The first trilogy had a slow passing and wide angles with full body shots, probably influenced by Japanese director Kurusawa, and that worked well for sceneries, characters and physical models, almost as Lucas was giving you time to “appreciate” the crafting in all this reality. For me, the original Star Wars was a story about place not character. And in terms of film history is an important achievement in special effects. Force awakens has nothing of the above, the editing is so JJ style, super fast, someone is always turning a corner and something explodes in his face, a lot of face shot – face shot - face shot…….. the movie feels artificial. JJ is a great technician but he is no artist, he can play great piano pieces but he cannot compose The last Jedi was a strange and sometimes boring, with a lot of irrelevant characters, but it had some interesting experiments, the Jedi fights were awesome. To be honest I was attached to spaceship models and Jedi fights, never really cared about who is father and who is son.
    July 7, 2017 5:33 pm Nice show as always I just watched Netflix´s Castlevania, written by warren Ellis and others. Since you guys do podcasts on some shows and movies, please please do a show on Castlevania it's small (4 ep ~80 min), it has good art, story is compelling, only good reasons for you to watch and make an awesome show keep the good work on the best sequential-art podcast
    June 26, 2017 10:13 pm Ill check that doc, I remember seeing the use of fish eye on Vermeer’s work, he used lens and other tools, he was truly ahead of its time. Some even claim painters used a sort of projection in the renascence, Caravaggio probably used it. But as you said, this causes a “stiffness”. An aspect present in most classical painting An artist like Frank Quitely is one of the best representing motion, and it really enhances the storytelling
    June 26, 2017 10:41 am It’s a fact Simon, drawing software, such as Manga studio, Sketchbook, etc, have built in characters for posing https://3.bp.blogspot.com/_7JtT6zTDkEU/TO_GUZlQKqI/AAAAAAAACOE/zhnO7t8hSwQ/s1600/poser_poses_superheroes_super_hero_download_anime_action_manga_studio_illuststudio_model_dead_poses__.png And yes the images you posted use 3d. usually you can see the direct use of 3d reference in cars, buildings, objects in general There is the direct photobashing Tony Harris style And you have the Frank Quitely work, a very stylized drawing that seems to come 99% from his head, complete free hand no use of rulers (not in the final art, but they were there for guidance)
    February 28, 2016 2:06 pm Great show has always, Goddamned is the best comic right now (and Nowhere men), I read the first comic 3 times, Jason Aaron dialogues are awesome dark/funny “ you didn’t have no scars. What kinda man don`t have no scars? Even babies got scars.” Guéra art has evolved so much since Scalped, this team is total brutalist. When I open this week`s comic and saw the Adam and Eve scene I thought this seems to biblical boring, but then you read the dialogues and you see the mastery of it.
    February 5, 2016 7:48 am Great talk has ever, bitter comments but true. I`m just sad to see the downgrade on animation quality in the last 15 years, Short Peace from Katsuhiro Otomo was the most impressive in recent years. A lot of it has to do with the use of 3d animation, facilitating a lot of things but giving that standard look to everything, in Short Peace there is an experimental combination between 3d modeling and 2d paintings and that is amazing. There was a great era for animation in the 80`s 90`s the beginning of 2000, from Akira to Ghost in the Shell. When I was really young I remembering seeing ninja scroll and thinking in 20 years animation will be overwhelming, but no…… just a lot of dc movies and very mediocre anime shows. If you know some good recent animation movies or shows please tell me
