Thursday Runaround - Before Everything

BeforeWatch: Heidi MacDonald takes on Before Watchmen.

M&G were so on board with the idea that a DC film crew went and interviewed them for HOURS about Watchmen. These interviews were edited down into an hour long version which lopped continuously at the DC booth at San Diego in 2000. I was working for DC at the time, and every time I was in the booth that film would be playing. Miracles could happen, everyone thought. There was talk of new back matter.

It was like the ping pong team going to China. It was a tiny crack, but for the first time, it looked like maybe there was a way for Moore and DC to get along.

LoveWatch: Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales got together over comic books, it seems.

MovieWatch: How to superhero movies affect superhero comic book sales? Comic stores sound out.

Over the last few years, Joss Whedon has written several stories that exist now only as comics, including additional “seasons” of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Having even a fraction of his considerable fan following come to the comics medium has been fantastic.”

OregonWatch: Sarah Mirk has created a history of Oregon in ten graphic novel volumes.

The little history comics — each about 4-by-5 inches, totaling 400 pages — are making big changes in Mirk’s life. In March, she hosted a standing-room-only release party at Powell’s City of Books. She’s on a three-month leave from her job as a reporter for the alt-weekly Portland Mercury, to research a second book about non-traditional relationships.

OsloWatch: Oslo Comics Expo 2012 will feature comic book creators, Chris Ware, Joost Swarte and Seth, as well as Marc Bell, Pascal Girard, Jillian Tamaki and Tom Devlin of Drawn and Quarterly, as part of a themed convention forcusing on the work of Canadians.

This is Computo the Comic Link Conqueror speaking. I come for your women. But for now I merely collate comic-related bits and pieces online. One day I will rule. Until that day, read on.

They say I am a work in progress. The fools.

Stan Lee On The Jack Kirby ‘Avengers’ Credit Controversy (UPDATE)

UPDATE: After attending a NY press screening, Moviefone can confirm that Jack Kirby’s name is listed in the end credits as a co-creator. Previously, we referred to Kirby’s omission from promotional materials of the upcoming film. Original story appears below.

Love the new conversations and debates about who is a creator, what makes a creator and what rights that creator has or has given up knowingly or otherwise.
Well, not the most original thought on it, but I was inspired to try this…. for the longest time, I thought it was a Kirby face anyway…
