Friday, time to share some links. Some i do comment, some not. Some lead to german internet presences.
# Could Jack Kirby’s Fourth World Make DC Comics’ Biggest Ever Omnibus, In Time For Christmas?
# New ‘Devilman’ Anime To Stream On Netflix (Japan) In 2018
# S.H.Figuarts Qui-Gon JInn Revealed
Yes! Wait, what is the second faceplate meant to emote?
# Whoa: ‘The Matrix’ Reboot Taking Shape at Warner Bros. Without the Wachowskis
This could work. Perhaps not with the people currently attached, but there are so many angles you could look at this story, even now.
# Anime Godzilla Movie Coming to Netflix Later This Year!
With Gen Urobuchi on writing made me more interested in this version of the king of monsters. His Kamen Rider series, Gaim, gave the franchise a needed new perspective.
# Six Years Ago Today
A comparison of the fukushima incident and Shin Godzilla.
# Tiny crack in steel seen through an electron microscope
# Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Begins Production, Laughs in the Face of God
# That New Star Wars Title Will Be A Darth Vader Ongoing By Charles Soule And Giuseppe Camuncoli
I hope Mr. Soule is in the same form as when he wrote the Lando miniseries because i liked that but wasn’t as much of a fan of his recent Marvel work.
# ‘Steven Universe’ WIll Be Coming To Consoles As An RPG
# James Cameron Confirms ‘Avatar 2’ Won’t Arrive in 2018, Make Your Fake Surprised Face Now
With the Tom King train on full speed, i decided to check out Omega Men, which i ignored during it’s publication in single issues.
That title left me devastated, like any other King title, but the path to that final punch in the nuts is a fascinating one. The lines that are usuaally drawn in heavily pigmented black ink isn’t clearly defined, and in the middle of the fog of war is Kyle Raynor; trying to navigate the grey zone as well as possible.
The artwork further drives the point across that no one in this comic is acting out of true altruism. Everything seems to have taken a short bath in a black wash that won’t come off.
Seems like i lived under a rock for the last three weeks. Tom Scioli, one of my favourite artists/writers in comics started a new webcomic.
It’s to early to make a statement avout the nature of the story, but Scioli’s artwork combines the style he adopted during his work on Satan’s Soldier through Transformers vs G.I. Joe with cleaner linework.
You can find his new work, Princess, here.
Unpacked it this morning.
Here are two panels that caught my eye while having a quick look through it.
Great idea: twelve different artists/writer teams write an installment each month, leaving the cliffhanger to be solved by the next team. In the next issue the team from the preceding issue will write their idea of the conclusion for their cliffhanger in the letters section.
I don’t buy the paragraph about DC not being able to settle on a team for an ongoing.
That aside, i dug the issue. Picks up a lot from the classic first issue, Giffen and Eaglesham are doing their best to honor the King while retaining their styles while the story moves at a rather fast pce for our decompressed age.
