"I mean, the broader point of 'Planetary' was very much asking people to look at the roots the genre sprang from and understanding the primal quality of the 20th Century myths we wrote. So when this [story] hit me – and I'm pretty sure I was standing in my garden at three in the morning with a glass of whisky, smoking furiously and swearing at the sky, reduced to waiting for the thunderbolt to hit – it spoke to me not only of the reasons why someone might put on a helmet and find justice their own way, but also why we read these myths of social justice ourselves. Where would you draw the line?" - Warren Ellis

Since it's the Fourth of July Weekend, I thought that I'd post this and give my commentary on it.

As I was reading some old Manhuas (Tales of the Blood Sword and Iron Marshal), I saw something that will complete your list of WTF moments in graphic history. Today I give you Kung Fu vs. Dracula!!!

Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting! )

"It's super-dark. You have to imagine someone like Red Skull, who is such an evil force, is so manipulative, and I've always been a believer that once you start to look for the darkness you realize it was all around you all the time. The story is very much a Heart of Darkness sort of story about how you keep going deeper and deeper into this thing and in the process of doing that, the journey to find the Red Skull, it starts to corrupt them. It starts to turn them as well. It gets kinda dark."

Spider-Man: Reign is in my opinion one of the more underrated Spidey stories out there. There's a bit of a "all there is to know about 'The Crying Game'" twist that's overshadowed the rest of the story. It's also been derided as a knock off The Dark Knight Returns (and the similarities are acknowledged with a character called 'Miller Janson') but in my opinion all they have in common is the concept of an aging superhero being called out of retirement. Simply put, Spider-Man and Batman are two very different characters -- you're not going to see Spider-Man as a hardened vigilante beating the crap out of Captain America. They're also products of two different periods; TDKR takes place during the Cold War, while Reign (although the connection is not as explicit) draws parallels with a post-9/11 America.

THE SIMPSONS #76 was a look at the Simpsons doing some of Shakespeare's works. Itchy and Scratchy get "Titus Andronicus." Be warned: it is gory even for Itchy and Scratchy.

Whoever wrote this is really messed up! )

"Initially, ANIMAL MAN was conceived as a four-issue miniseries [...] however, I was asked to continue the series into a regular monthly comic book [...] Having no desire to produce yet another grittily realistic exploration of what it is to be superhuman and/or an urban vigilante with emotional problems, I cast desperately around for a new direction. What I finally came up with was 'The Coyote Gospel,' which became the template for the further development of the series [...] Hilariously enough, during [its] writing [...] I was utterly convinced that what I was writing was absolute unreadable gibberish and that it would hammer the final nail into the coffin of my fledgling career as a writer of American super-hero comics. The success and popularity of the story took me entirely by surprise and encouraged me to go on to produce the entirely unreadable gibberish which has since become my stock-in-trade."
--Grant Morrison, Introduction to Animal Man TPB vol. 1, 1991

Trigger warning for violence/gore.

It was going out the same way it'd come in.

The Warriors were confronting the High Evolutionary and his plan to kill everyone on Earth who wasn't flatscan human. They beat his Evolutionaries and subdued him.

Then Earth's own Eternals BOOM'd into the story.

They came crashing through the High Evolutionary's ship's roof. )
