A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.
My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.
So does Bruce Timm show up when all WB showrunners are doubting themselves? Only to dissapear until he’s needed again?
All kidding aside, GL was one of the best series on air last year. It was taken before it’s time but as per usual, everything that comes after is better for it having been there :) Great work to all the crew.
The audience is ahead of us, in comics. It’s more ethnically diverse and gender diverse than the books we are publishing. I think anyone who has been to a con in the last five years can see that.
Yet, many recent attempts at diverse comics, even with great creative teams, have…
I think the question is more could these kinds of titles ever garner more mainstream appeal? The whole point of these books is that they do push the boundaries, they give us what the Batmans and the Walking Deads and the Spidermans cannot, therefore placing them well outside established genre conventions which the mainstream picks up and follows.
I don’t know, it’s my feeling that we already have more of these books being published and I damn well hope this doesn’t stop. I’m personally happiest when I can collection a run in two or three trades especially when each set is different stories with a pile of different experiences on offer, but this is just my personal opinion. And we’ve got more of these books available atm, not as many as I would like from DC and Marvel and other publishers but this can alwaysbe improved.
No, I think the problem lies much closer to home. Distribution and Discovery. We’ve had the market grow with digital but every second week you hear about something terrible going on at a comic book shop. And while the net does well for those that are connected, comic book shops are one of the best methods for finding these new titles.
If we can solve these two for the mass market (and hell, each and everyone of us can assist with this already) I feel that more excellentweird different and diverse books can find further ongoing success.
How we approach what success is and if success for mainstream is the same kind of success that diverse books need is a discussion for another time.
Ever wonder what happened to Brain in Inspector Gadget. Turns out that in the french version of Gadget and the Gadgetinis the closing credits reveal that he’s retired to the side of a river and no longer has Inspector Gadget causing him harm.
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008. It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there. It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them. A larger work gets talked about from time to time. It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories. Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
Kate’s best work IMO, read it read it read it
So many people on my tumblr are reblogging this with good reason. I’m reminded of some of Leah’s stories up north after this.
so lately more people have been wondering about my creator-owned comic book timeline. it CAN be a bit confusing, I grant you. in the spirit of conveying my own vision of my comic serieses, i’ve created this infographic centered around my main graphic novel series, Sharknife. hopefully it’s an illuminating look to my overall battle plan for those that are interested!
this infographic doesn’t account for:
- freelance professional gigs i’ve done like Avatar: The Last Airbender, X-Men: Nation X, Strange Tales
- NEW non-sharknife related comics that I plan on doing in the very near future
i’ll be uploading the short comic “RUFYO" soon for all to see for free!
Sharknife, now built in with 110% more reboot. However after the glory of Sharknife Z I already have my money ready regardless of outcome.
