Beetlebum

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011


Zeit für einen neuen Comic-Post: Beetlebum ist einer der schnellsten Comiczeichner ever seen. Und: Er ist gut. Sehr gut. Witzig, geistreich und kann gut zeichnen. Mehr noch: Er ist ein netter Typ. Was kann man mehr verlangen? Sein Comic-Blog wuchert zur Graphic Novel. Was kann dem Medium besseres passieren?

Why nerds love superheroes

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Warum Nerds so auf Superhelden stehen? Weil das beginnende 21. Jahrhundert nur aus Krisen aufeinander folgend besteht. Und weil der Supermensch in einer postheroischen Welt ein Fremdkörper geworden ist – außerweltlich oder sonstwie überoptimiert aber in Maschinen- und digitalen Welten recht nutzlos. Darin sei er nicht ganz unähnlich seinem kleinen Fan und dessen Facebook- und sonstigen Parallelidentitäten, … sagt jedenfalls die SZ. Für eine einsame Sonntagnacht ist diese Abhandlung anhand des letzten Captain America Movies durchaus reviewing-wert. Tipp: Danach im Spiegel betrachten und die eigene Existenz passieren lassen.

This Woman Loves a Great Asshole

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Diese Frau liebt einen Mann, der richtig nerven kann: Asterios Polyp ist Architekt, berühmt und hat noch nie ein Haus gebaut. Macht nix, denn weil er alles am besten weiß, steht er eh immer im Mittelpunkt.

Autor und Zeichner David Mazzucchelli schuf einen der formal und inhaltlich schönsten Comic-Romane der letzten Jahre. Wunderwunderbar!

Tipp: Schnell kaufen, denn sonst ist er nicht mehr da.

Meet Corn Stone, the God of 70´s Pulp & Comics

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Nobody´s such an expert about 70s Marvel and other comics and pulp as Corn Stone. Meet him and his Black, White & Read CrewEvery week he posts piles of originals, scribbles, full pages or details of pencilling and inking geniuses such as Big John Buscema, Gene Colan, Val Mayerik, Alfredo Alcala, Frank Miller, Mort Drucker, Charles M. Schulz, Barry Windsor-Smith and many others. But the best about Corn Stone is his unmastered expertise about every artist, their methods and styles, the backgrounds and special circumstances. Corn Stone really knows a lot! (When does he do Neal Adams?)
