ComicMix Quick Picks – May 3, 2009
A weekend window-closing wrap-up:
- The hardest core Wolverine fan you’ve ever seen… unless someone’s actually gotten their skeleton laced with adamantium.
- The Seven Stages of the Comics Critic – comiXology
- Interview: Heroes artist Tim Sale on the true colour of Batman and Spider-Man
- The Comics Reporter: More staffers leaving Wizard?
- Warren Ellis on the genesis of Global Frequency:
I defined GLOBAL FREQUENCY from the start as Rescue Fiction. if not
explicitly Post-9/11 Rescue Fiction. Because Thunderbirds is the
anti-Superman. Now, I just woke up, so it’s okay if that doesn’t make
sense. But immediately after 9/11 I found people on message boards
ACTUALLY SAYING OUT LOUD that they wished Superman were real because he
would have saved the WTC. And that is an anti-evolutionary wish. What
you say is, I wish the dozen or so people who knew this was going to
happen could have informed someone who’d actually listen and that we
had had the sense/madness to engineer a mechanical response to someone
attacking NYC with flying death tubes.
- Hooray, hooray, the first of May. And you know what that means– it’s time for The Wicker Man: May Day Mayhem Onscreen!
- If Destroyed, Still True: Remarkable coincidence alert!: Jonathan Maberry writes a Wolverine story and gets caught creating sockpuppets defending it. I tell people they’ll get caught if they write something under a different name, or if they hire someone to write under their name, but do they listen? Noooo…
Anything else? Consider this an open thread.
