HateWatch: Dwight MacPherson on the Graphic Novel/Film Pitch cource..and hate.

Sure, there are some "big-name" freelancers who see a considerable amount of income from comic sales, but the majority of us haven't seen one thin dime from the books we create after the exorbitant printing fees, "use of publisher's logo fees," office fees, and yada yada fees

KevinSmithWatch: How Neil Gaiman helped Kevin Smith…

"My favorite moment of the night was Kevin explaining how Neil & Dave McKean's BLACK ORCHID helped him impress a girl named Amy. Kevin created business cards with the Bat symbol on it during the BATMAN film hype in 1989. He got the idea from the BLACK ORCHID mini-series. Kevin left the card on Amy's card with the message, "Look up." When Amy found the card and looked up, she saw Kevin on top of her work positioned himself in front of the moon, wearing a flowing leather coat, and striking a superhero pose. While it impressed her, Kevin had no way to get down. The entire building erupted in laughter."

The recording of that night can be found here.

"Christmas With The Joker" | Batman: The Animated Series

It's the same thing with Batman:  the Batman I love doesn't necessarily come from any single issue of Batman or any single media portrayal. It's a character I more or less developed in my mind based on the appealing aspects of all the media portrayals I've ever seen. Most people do this, and the Batman I love may be vastly different from the Batman you love, while both of them may be at odds with any Batman that's ever actually appeared in comics, movies, TV, and so on.

Shakespeare Superheroes Suffer Slings and Arrows in Comic Book

Although the 12-volume series is a hit, some scholars wonder whether 'tis nobler for vital characters like Hamlet, Richard III and Othello to suffer the slings and arrows of an outrageous concept or simply not reach a modern audience unfamiliar with or unwilling to learn the basics of iambic pentameter.

Batwoman begins (again)

At first, I thought it would be a bad idea. I figured he'll just make me look bad, since his art is so good. Really! I thought, "I'm just asking for trouble." But then I keep saying, "I love a challenge." I want to do more with my art, and this is the way to do it.

Signalnoise 'Green Lantern' poster – Signalnoise.com

I honestly believe the Green Lantern logo in terms of design is ranked at third across the entire DC Universe trumped only by Superman and Batman, and the ring is by far the most iconic element of this hero. Which is why I was baffled when this poster was released and the ring is nowhere to be found. Say what?
