GrantWatch: On fans;

There was one guy in the US who was ready to kill everyone in the office when I was working for Marvel. The FBI got involved and locked him up. It was about something in an X-Men comic. I didn’t write it but it drew on stuff I’d created and we’d done something to ruin the purity of his favourite childhood character. I wouldn’t want to tar all fans with that – you get all sorts, from people who write clever analysis to some real nutters.

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

Costume Designers Guild Local IA 892 | Articles Archive

The project has created quite a furor. When Warner Bros. initially approached Blackman, the pilot was shrouded in secrecy. Blackman began by combing Wonder Woman encyclopedias, researching how her costume developed through the decades. He also considered her mystique, examining what has kept fans enthralled with the heroine since the 1940s. Years of designing the “Star Trek” series prepared Blackman for working with classic imagery in which the public is deeply emotionally invested. It also gave him the unparalleled background in specialty costume fabrication he would need, since the timeframe from the beginning of prep to the first day of shooting was four weeks.

DC Women Kicking Ass – Is October Boobtober for DC this year?

If I had to pick the most obvious thing they do wrong is they let artists go crazy with the sexualized poses and ridiculous body shapes. Not all women have huge boobs. Most women do not stand so you can see both their ass and their boobs. No matter how great the writing is on a book, I still wince, as do many other readers both male and female, when they see that kind of art in a book.

Grant Morrison at Foyles – James reports | The Forbidden Planet International Blog Log

He spoke highly of Watchmen, describing it as beautiful. But I could sense that the realism and adult desire for explanation and sense that some authors aped was, for him, a dead end.  He made mention of the Kabala – the magicians’ path, which is embodied in a way in the book and was frank and tremendously objective when asked about his alien abduction incident while in Kathmandu.  I was very impressed with how he could describe the subjective experience and then with detachment explain how he himself has tried to rationalise, and find reason for the experience and also with objectivity attempt to dismiss it.
