“By refusing to exclude rape from his depictions of violence and power in action in my view Moore is fulfilling an important function. While ninety nine percent of popular fictions are happy to present us with a picture of violence that excludes most of the troubling bits, a violence that is fundamentally fun and entertaining, Moore is prepared to go to much more uncomfortable places and thank God.”

I feel like animated characters always have longer calves than they have thighs.  They have these tiny little thighs and these big, wonderful calves and then these big hips, and this tiny little waist. I feel like it’d be hard to keep your balance, but it looks good. Plus I loved this script, and I loved the character.  Who wouldn’t love to be Supergirl?  So I had a great time.

In fact, that sure does look a lot like the mysterious Hobgoblin in this brand new trailer

I think the barrier between all these different forms of writing is much more porous nowadays, which is a very exciting turn.
