Thursday Runaround - Dan DiDio, Chainsaws And Cow Boys

WatchWatch: From coremech.

DCWatch: It looks as if DC didn’t like the idea of Joe Quesada taking the limelight at Kapow! in London. Bob Wayne came last year, but this year he’s to be joined by Dan DiDio and Will Dennis to promote Before Watchmen.

BeanoWatch: While previous British comic convention organiser, Kev Sutherland, continues to teach comics to the  youngest.

He said: “They want chain saws, zombies and violence – all the stuff they get in computer games. I want to see books for kids with violence – cathartic and well-reasoned violence. Kids don’t like soft stuff, by and large.

“When you see the stuff the kids have created for themselves, mostly it’s explosive gun-toting hamsters blowing up Jeremy Clarkson or Peppa Pig, and that’s where eight-year-old brains are at.

“I find some people are a bit disturbed by the violence in the stories. They should read Shakespeare or the Bible.”

CowWatch: Chris Eliopoulos gets press for his upcoming graphic novel with Nate Cosby from Archaia, Cow Boy.

“In the past, I’ve staged my comics on the thing I loved as a kid: comic strips,” said Eliopoulos, 44. “With this project, Nate pushed me to think more cinematic. So, I tried to make it look like you were reading an adaptation of a movie.

“I also muted the colors and added texture to the art to give it a rough, Old West feel to it. Any time I started to drift back to that comic strip look, Nate would subtly remind me to stay out of the medium shot. I feel like I went from an old silent picture world to an IMAX movie.”
