Tuesday Runaround – Funny Junked

SourceWatch: Fans of the Batman comic, look away now.

“The source material is irrelevant,” says Nolan. “The challenge with Batman is to find what is a believable character. You put your stamp on it.”

BeyondWatch: The Watchmen sequel that could be, by Michael Chabon and Dave Gibbons.

After some delays, this week ‘Beyond Watchmen’ is finally here, and we can judge for ourselves. While the implications for creators’ rights are important, I want to review the book, not the controversy.

The first thing to say is just how beautiful it looks. The 400 page graphic novel sits comfortably on the shelf next to the original. Indeed, because the black-on-yellow spine reads only ‘BEYOND’, it has to sit next to the original to spell out the full title.

DigiWatch: Roy Race, star of Roy Of The Rovers, is coming to a digital device near you, as Egmont put all the old strips from Tiger and Roy Of The Rovers online through Apple iBooks…

DigiWatch2: How HTML5 comics are looking...

DigiWatch3: FunnyJunk is threatening to sue Oatmeal for $20,000 for criticising the way FunnyJunk does business by posting Oatmeal copyright work without attribution or permission. And gets thoroughly pwned… raising almost $100,000 to rub in Funnyjunk’s face.

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.

Todd’s Blog » Blog Archive » DC Comics’ Production Dept., 1979 Part 1

A few weeks ago long-time ace DC artist José Luis Garcia López posted a number of photos he’d taken in the DC Comics production department in or around 1979. They were from a contact sheet, not the original negatives, so the quality is not the best, but I found them fascinating, bringing back a lot of memories about working there. José has graciously allowed me to use them and he sent me the entire contact sheet, so I’m going to post all the pictures here with comments.
