I remember seeing "When myy kid went Punk" or whatever it's called on ABC afterschool. I think he played a violin.

Excellent stuff!

But who the hell is TOF?

Finally got around to reading this, this is great stuff. Best piece of art criticism I've read this year, I'd say... although I really don't keep up with Film Quarterly any more, but they were never particularly hilarious anyhow.

I don't know if you guys are reading "Spider-Man: Fever," but if not, you are missing some amazing artwork. It KNOWS it's crazy, which I suppose distinguishes it from what you're talking about here (Road Warrior excepted,) but there's one page in issue 2 that burns my head every bit as much as "The Sun" by Edward Munch... which is a really lot.

didn't adam hughes break his drawing hand or something like that?

anyways, awesome funny conversation. i agree with a ton of it.

Still haven't read the whole thing yet, but what I've gotten to is thoroughly entertaining and thoughtful. Kudos guys.

"Dr. Fate is floating in the air at a little girl's funeral. Who fucking does that? That really struck me as rude."

I think it's because he's so far in the back. Especially with the helmet, it's probably really hard to see. He doesn't want to miss the action, so he floats a little bit. It seems like a reasonable decision. Supes would do the same if he were a second string property and had to stay all the way in the back like that.

"there's nothing in life that I can learn about myself or humanity from a super-hero comic. "

I don't know; I felt like I learned things from Watchmen, from Animal Man, from that weird Spider-Man comic with the Bruce Lee rip off which talked about pacifism, probably from other stuff too. For whatever that's worth.

Marvel Team-Up # 144?


A bit late to rejoin the party, but I just red Rise 2, and since Roy's stump was infected when cut... That yellow stuff is probably supposed to be pus.
