I posted this all the way back in 2010 but I figured today would be a good day to share it again. It came from from the Wildstorm New Line Horror line. In my mind, stories like this are the best way to utilize film-to-comic stories--stuff that would never happen in the actual films. I think even people who don't like Jason and co. might be pleasantly surprised by this one. 

Disclaimer: As this is a Friday the 13th comic, there's a bit of gore. So take that into consideration.

Miyazaki's Concepts of Good vs. Evil, and Matt Rhode's 'My Hero'

Though not strictly actual comics in the sense that they'd be okay in of themselves to be posted here, I thought that these are relevant enough to our community that people might think that they're cool in their own right.

Been picking through the complete run of Authority recently, and I'm currently at the execrable Transfer of Power arc, which is basically Tom Peyer and Mark Millar reminding us that 90% of people are not just apathetic towards the suffering of others, but outright sadists who enjoy causing severe physical and emotional trauma to others.

Oh goody.

I was surprised, however, when I came across one of the best one-off characters I've ever seen, especially coming from Wildstorm's The Authority (not that there aren't times the Authority are fun themselves).

As the sun begins to set... the bugle now has played )

8 pages behind the cut, from The Authority #25, 26 and #27.

Greetings True Believers!

I'm a life-long history buff, lover of alternate history and comic collector. So Wildstorm's mini-series about the WWII invasion of Japan was a natural fit.

Storming Paradise is set in world were the WWII conflict between the United States and the Empire of Japan wasn't ended by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In this world, the atomic tests failed and the Allies had to launch Operation Downfall, the invasion of Japan.

This of course changes history and different people meet different fates. One of the those people is General George S. Patton. One of the most talented and colorful soldiers in U.S. history. He was a real son of a bitch and my reading about the man tells me he would preferred the ending he got in the SP universe then the one he got in our world.

Warning! War-time racist language. Might not be safe for work.

One of the best things about Alan Moore's WildCATs run was the character TAO, a superhumanly intelligent character who you could genuinely believe was supermanly intelligent.

Genius types are nothing new in superhero stories. You have your Mr. Fantastics, Brainiac 5s, Lex Luthors, and whatnot going back decades, but writers never give any indication of their brilliance other than having them pull out pieces of deus ex machinery as the plot demands. How lazy. So leave it to Moore to, in a few pages, do a better job of portraying superhuman intelligence than those other writers managed in all those decades.

In this scene, from issue 33, TAO is cornered by an enemy who could crush him like a bug. What does he do? He literally talks his opponent into a psychotic breakdown.
