Weekend Reading: Reboots, Disney, Superman and Cheech Wizard
With all the talk of DC’s big reboot, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at something Grant Morrison, Mark Waid, Mark Millar, and Tom Peyer put together for DC back in 1998: Superman 2000. And it was. I would totally read these comics.
Now let's see what else can be read:
Euro: I always get a kick out of it when someone reads their first graphic novel. Karen at the Euro Crime blog (a terrific blog for crime fiction) read a Doctor Who graphic novel. Her verdict: “looks beautiful but doesn't take long to read!”
Halloween: It’s never too early to talk about The Halloween Legion, a new project from Martin Powell.
Bambi: It wasn’t always a classic of children’s literature as some might suspect. The Storyboard blog at the Walt Disney Family Museum breaks it down. Bonus: rabbit death.
Bode: Greg Theakston is blogging his life story, and one of his most excellent posts is about how he attended the funeral of his friend Vaughn Bode. Bonus: Appearance by the late Jeffrey Catherine Jones.
Jones: Artist George Pratt remembers Jeffrey Catherine Jones.
Fantasy: Author Jonathan Stroud has a graphic novel adaptation of his fantasy novel The Amulet of Samarkand. Stroud adapted the story with Andrew Donkin, with art by Lee Sullivan. I like the way it looks.
And finally, Stephen Fry will voice a talking bench and it's not a new Pixar cartoon.
Now use your internets responsibly!
