"I made the same point about Beatty's art (although a bit less harshly). I don't think it stacks up against any of the prior artists, which is a shame."

The Stone King

The Stone KingKel McDonald, writer; Tyler Crook, artistComiXology Originals, 2019I have been paying attention to the ComiXology Originals, but had completely overlooked this one. As a fan of Tyler Crook's art on B.P.R.D. and Harrow County I had to check out this fantasy story about a city called Stoneport, which has a vaguely Medieval feel to it. The protagonist Ave is a…See More

Luis Olavo de Moura Dantas replied to Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod)'s discussion Swamp Thing: New Roots
"Good and doubtlessly influential as the reinvention / retcon by Alan Moore was, it led to a lot indeed of continuity baggage.  Restoring Swamp Thing to its basics is probably a wise move, both for novelty and for wide appeal at this point."

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.

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.
