And Jason 1.0

Saw some original art from this issue online and realisd I'd always meant to share the issue. It's a minor story in many ways, Doug Moench writing the first of a sort of two part story which isn't major or "important", but to share Don Newton pencils with Alfredo Alcala inks and Adrienne Roy colours, is always a pleasure.

One of the things I wanted to originally go for with this series was to create a kind of “myth from the future”—a science-fiction quest based on the classical Argonauts/Prometheus model. One of the cornerstones of that was the idea that some meaningful number would venture forth and one less would come back. Someone pays the price for stealing fire from Heaven, and there’s no shortage of likely candidates… -- Al Ewing

Lucky Luke is a humorous European comic series which serves as both a parody and an homage to the Westerns. Created by Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere ("Morris", 1923-2001) in 1946, it was published as serials in several magazines (Spirou, Tintin, Pilóte, etc). When René Goscinny of Asterix fame took over co-writing duties, it raised the magazine's overall quality of text and made it a hit.

In the stories, cowboy Lucky Luke usually acts as a bodyguard to someone who will serve as the conductive thread of the narrative. The gags and mishaps will follow on until the objective is fulfilled at the end of the story.

It also used plenty of historical figures in its stories, such as Hanging Judge Roy Bean in the following book.



11 pages out of 48, below )

Don Rosa also featured Judge Bean in a story of his own, "The Prisoner of White Agony Creek".

Mod Post: Off-Topic Tuesday

[personal profile] icon_uk posting in [community profile] scans_daily
In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Another devastating Category 5 hurricane, this time "Maria", has caused massive damage to Dominica, and is heading towards Guadalupe.

In what is either a bizarrely surreal end-of-season plot twist or, more worryingly, a normalisation of appalling behaviour, former White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer made an appearance at the Emmy's and was smooched by celebrities who would have been excoriating him a couple of months ago. Words fail.

Toys'R'Us in the US has filed for bankruptcy protection, which does not bode well for the huge chain of stores in America (Those stores abroad, like the ones in the UK and Australia are not directly affected as yet)

Sort of on-topic, Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men's latest episode is an interesting discussion of the intersection of politics and comics as it applies to the X-Men, perhaps mainstream comics most consistently politically active (if not always successfully) comic. Definitely worth a listen.

Aung San Suu Kyi is facing criticism for not speaking out against the apparent ethnic cleaning of Royhinga Muslims going on in northern Rhakine state of Myanmar.. The situation is complicated by the military being a distinct from the Government, and the balance of power being uneven, but it seems disappointing at best, that Ms Suu Kyi has not spoken against it.

The unholy offspring of political backstabbing and circle-jerking otherwise known as "the UK Brexit strategy" continues with Ministers contradicting each other, re-hashing old and outdated lies and an PM who can't sack the worst offenders because A) She can't risk the backlash, and B) It leaves her no one else to blame when the shit hits the fan come 2019.

The latest, and probably last, wave of Lego Dimensions figures came out, including Beetlejuice, Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans Go. The existing LEGO Batman Movie Robin and DCU Cyborg figures assume their cartoon appearances when in the Adventure World, which is cute, and there is even one final use of the TARDIS docking port where we briefly see a Nightwing minifigure I'd really like, but will never. I think the lack of a unifying storyline, as they had in Year One, has not done the title any favours (nor has the ongoing cost of the assorted packs, despite it still being a fun licence-crossing game). And it does mean that the long rumoured Lord Vorton figure might never see the light of day.

And I'm a little behind on the news of the upcoming Miraculous Ladybug Season 2, including the number of new Miraculous holders we will see, such as Le Papillon/Hawkmoth's boss named... well that would be telling. :)

This video has serious spoilers about the identities of a number of new heroes, as well as a couple of new abilities for Ladybug and Chat Noir/Cat Noir, so be warned.

A late addition, but one worth mentioning (though I regret it has to be) is that the GOP are attempting yet again, to defund the ACA. Just in case those of you in the US want to let those who represent you know your opinions on the matter.

Meme: 10 favorite characters

branchandroot: oak against sky (Default)
[personal profile] branchandroot
Okay, this one sounds fun. Favorite characters in 10 different fandoms.

1. Fullmetal Alchemist. Roy. I mean, Ed is huge fun to write, and so is Al when he gets his snark on, but Roy is my most reliable fic-fodder character, plotting creature that he is.

2. Prince of Tennis. Probably Yukimura, with Rikkai as a whole coming close second. They’re just so much fun to write about as a team; tasty dynamics everywhere, especially with the angst-lever to crack it all open.

3. Bleach. Hm. This one is actually a little difficult. I mean, in absolute terms, Rukia, but, again, mostly Rukia in relation to Ichigo and Orihime and Renji. Close second place is split by Byakyua and Hirako Shinji, despite the second’s late appearance.

4. Kuroko no Basuke. Kuroko, hands down, often in relation to Kagami, but also in relation to the other Miracle-idiots. No one can lay the straight-faced smackdown like Kuroko.

5. Angel Sanctuary. Mad Hatter, with Kira following close behind. I have a soft spot for complex motivation, in case that wasn’t obvious.

6. Naruto. Kakashi, closely followed by Sakura, albeit usually in the key of “omfg, move over and let me drive” given that canon gives them both a pretty raw deal, character-development-wise.

7. 07-Ghost. Frau. I also have a /huge/ soft spot for Teito and Ouka, and everything they might make of their world, but Frau is the most fun to play with.

8. Katekyou Hitman Reborn. Gokudera is entertainingly highstrung, but the more I dug into it, the more Squalo showed up with a bagful of plot and emotional porn. 

9. GetBackers. Kazuki, especially in relation to Saizou, Toshiki, Sakura, and Juubei. Also with the emotional porn and fix-it urges.

10. Nirvana in Fire. Lin Shu/Mei Changsu, yes, all the way. A type, I can haz it, and it’s called Magnificent Bastards.

In conclusion, I clearly like the ones who smile politely all the while they’re getting a nice, iron grip on everything around them. Though also the ones whose central motivation is devotion. 

Consider yourself tagged, if you’d like!

In the posts for MS. MARVEL #21, I commented how teen superheroes get their own "Flash Thompson." But each creative team tries to make that "Flash Thompson" more than just "Flash Thompson."

[personal profile] arilou_skiff said "The weird thing is that well... Flash Thompson has been more than Flash Thompson for ages. Ever since before he went to Vietnam."
