"I'd read the two BROTHER POWER THE GEEK comics as a small boy, and thought they were seriously weird. Rereading them as an adult they were still seriously weird, and funny, and touched with a sad, strange nostalgia. I'd been reading some Ken Kesey, and somehow the idea of Brother Power as a final remnant of flower power began to possess me. 'At least you didn't bring back Prez,' said my friends, relieved. Little did they know."
--Neil Gaiman, Midnight Days

CBS NEWS: This comic's publication in 1994 seems like a turning point in the industry. Do you sense how it influenced the comics world since?

GARTH ENNIS: At the time, there was a real sense of treading on uncharted ground. Certainly no one else was doing anything like it in comics, so there was a good deal of groping in the dark. Comics up to that point, until the mid-80s, had effectively been juvenalia, so that was the point of Vertigo, to be able to do material like that in mainstream comics. As the influence it's had since, that's harder for me to say. I feel that the material that inspired Vertigo back then has been to an extent cordoned off and forgotten -- perhaps not forgotten, but it's been put on its reservation.

Alan Moore's work on "Watchmen" and "Miracleman" -- that should have written the end of the superhero. But they've essentially been shoved off to the side and superheroes have continued like a juggernaut. I don't really read a lot of comic books and it's because of that domination of the superhero. If I was to talk about "Preacher"'s influence, I can kind of see that in "Y: The Last Man" by Brian Vaughn. Beyond that, I would find it hard to trace "Preacher"'s exact influence.

I checked and it's been five years since I posted this, so I'm giving it a bit of a revival.

I've also discovered there was an old series of posts about Diana called "World of Wondy", so I'll probably merge them with the current theme, for ease of access.

The new movie will hove to the New52 reveal that Diana is the actually the daughter of Zeus, a story idea so at odds with the concept of Wonder Woman it boggles the mind. I believe that Rebirth might have done away with that (though I'm not sure), but the movie was already underway so it played the cards it was dealt



Trigger warning for misogyny, violence against women and rape (though that latter is not seen, it's so heavily implied as to be worth mentioning)

"The idea that would eventually evolve into "Caliban" began when I heard there was going to be a prequel to "Alien", which is one of my all-time favourite films. What I like best about it is the sheer level of imagination on display; it gets you thinking about all kinds of possibilities. When I finally saw "Prometheus" I realised they’d gone in a completely different direction to what I expected, and given that I had all these ideas kicking about from my idle musing, I thought- why not?"

We were back.

Back home.

The reality that had been consumed by Chronos was restored, and with it, our identities.

It was the Apocatastasis - the rebirth of the universe.

We were finally winning...

But our battle was far from over.

There were no heroes. Not anymore.

Only us.

One by one we would fall to the darkness that had descended upon our world.

It was the end of everything.

And there was nothing we could do to stop it...

...Except pray.

For decades, our world had been under the rule of one man -- an absent leader who had long since abandoned his responsibilities to the people.

It is said that he had once been a champion of justice; his legend an inspiration of heroes to come.

The very heroes who would step forward to protect the world in his absence.

But the heroes were gone.

And our president could no longer be trusted.
