Neil Gaiman on Moebius

Gaiman’s full eulogy on Moebius can be found at his journal post Remembering Moebius.

He drew different stories in different styles, and the only thing they seemed to have in common was that they were beautiful. -Neil Gaiman

That Extended Cut of the AVENGERS Trailer Most of You Have Already Seen is Here, Worth Talking About Again

Official Synopsis

Nick Fury and the international agency S.H.I.E.L.D. bring together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki & his various membered army.

What We Learned: Nick Fury believes in Harvey Dent heroes. Loki doesn’t seem to be bound to a scientists mortal form anymore. Tony Stark has iron balls to talk smack to, what for all intents and purposes, is a god. Of course, he’s probably drunk during that meeting. HULK SMASH PUNY FUTURE JET!

Why We’ll Watch: We’ll watch because of all the snark we mentioned above and then some. Seeing Marvel finally step into the light of making entertaining movies from their characters has been a joy for this Marvel zombie. Sure there have been a few mis-steps but with the House of Ideas running their own movie studio it became easier for them to keep their continuity in line. Although, it did get in their way a few other times. The loss of Jon Favreau and Ed Norton will be felt. But the machine, as always, lurches on.

Now if only Marvel studios could get back the rights to Spider-Man, The X-Men and the Fantastic Four. We could get a good sized mega-movie by throwing them back into movie continuity.

Watch the trailer below the cut.

When’s it coming? May 4, 2012

Giant-Sized Geek and Giant-Sized Marvel, Comics Blog for Comics Addicts

What Is It?: Two blogs submitted for your approval. Both dedicated to the curiosities and artful epicness of comics. A favorite from Giant-Size Marvel is Bruce Timm drawing the Women of Marvel(seen above). While Giant-Size Geek has been flooding our brains with Jack Kirby Fourth World Galleries and 1970s Conan portfolios.

Back to the Timm drawing, we always thought Marvel animation’s biggest failing was not having a consistent style in the beginning. The elegant simplicity of his work always drew us into the DCAU* in the ’90s.

Moment of Who: “What would I have seen you in?”

Twitterer @timbentinck says this is an old actors joke. Despite our knowledge of entertainment and thespians, the particular joke in question escapes us. The main thrust of the punchline doesn’t.

Tumblr Watch: Dwain Smith’s Googly Eyes X-Men Comic Covers Makes Mutant Angst Fun Again

What is it: File this under: yet another simple idea so awesome that we should have thought of it first. Dwain Smith‘s pasting of googly eyes on X-Men covers is nerd comedy we can get behind. We don’t understand why but the more serious the X-Men cover, the better the eye googlies makes it. He’ll never run out of usable material from the Dork Age.
