"Good review, Mark.  This is one of those series, I'm still not sure if I like it or not. There have definitely been some interesting issues, and it has held my interest enough to keep reading. I'm just not sure about it though."

"I've met him, and have to say that he seems more soft-spoken writer than tough guy. But at the same time, key elements in this story come right out of his family history, so I don't know. His true self is probably somewhere in between. If…"

"Yes, Vertigo started retaining some rights on the creator-owned stuff, mainly licensing to other media. As I understand it for new projects creators were cut out of negotiations for film and TV rights. So that's not really ownership, is it?…"

Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod) replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Significant Comics Serials or Concepts since 2000
"If you're looking for broad trends, I'd point to the rise of creator-owned projects and imprints. Vertigo began in 1993--but by 2000 it was almost entirely dominated by creator-owned series (as opposed to revamps--including Y:The Last Man…"

Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod) replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'The Orville' Season 2
"Yes, that is a strong bit of continuity. It was also impressive that Bortus actually learned something from the rescue experience, giving some resonance to the partially failed rescue."

Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod) replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'The Orville' Season 2
"I was surprised that it was only a partial rescue, too. My wife and I both thought that the porn addiction story line was a bit heavy-handed. Made us wonder if there wasn't some personal history among the writing staff."

Heroes Convention 2009

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 11:26pm 2 Comments

After a late start, spent almost seven hours at the convention. I attended one panel discussion: "The New Power Generation of Comics" with Brian Michael Bendis, Ivan Brandon, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman, and Matt Fraction. Matt Brady of Newsarama attempted to moderate, with limited success (at one point Fraction turned a question around and basically interviewed Brady instead of the other way around). These writers all know each other, and had a good time tossing the questions around,… Continue

Thanks, Mark. Just clearing up a question a friend made of me about the review of Don Quixote (I'm NOT that Rob Davis). This looks like a fun place, though I doubt I'll have much time to visit often.
