In 2006 Wildstorm gained the rights to publish comics off of the various New Line Horror characters (Freddy, Jason and Leatherface). Previously they were published by Avatar and as you can expect they were little more than gore porn. Wildstorm's output was a mixed bag but they published some genuinely good stories (one of them was the comic where Jason befriends a deformed boy which you can see in the archives).

In my opinion the best comic published from them was the initial series from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning with Wesley Craig on art. It's one of the better horror comics I've read and it makes me genuinely sad that Abnett and Lanning never worked on any of the recent films because this would have been ten times better than the 'prequel' or the 3D movie that just came out.

As a content warning there's an included rape scene in addition to the usual gore and violence.

The best way to describe Red One is "a sexy mess".

I tried to do a little summary for the premise, where the Cold War era Russians (but not the Cold War era Russians that we would recognise) send an agent to America (characterised by a schism between "family values", of homophobia and prudishness, and a free love agenda) to win a cultural war by becoming a superhero and cultural icon while also fighting with a hammer (which she throws at a bullet, stopping it) and sickle, and there was a porn film involved, and a "moral crusader" who was styled as an unkillable Amish called The Carpenter and, it takes place with SALT in the background and... it's nonsense.

But nonsense doesn't have to mean the same as bad.

But, it's secured the art team of the Dodsons, and that means that everybody looks lovely.

I've picked out a four page sequence from #4 where Red One decides to go out and be superheroic, like her handlers wanted (sort of. even that bit flip flops around).

tw for the beginning of a rape scene )

So, that's Red One being a bit too extreme and direct, and that's even before her very brief stint as a fluffer.

"In my work for The Atlantic I have, for some time, been asking a particular question: Can a society part with, and triumph over, the very plunder that made it possible? In Black Panther there is a simpler question: Can a good man be a king, and would an advanced society tolerate a monarch?" - Ta-Nehisi Coates

"The majority of how we address faith in the story is through Reverend Anderson (played by Philip Glenister), because he is a Baptist preacher. Patrick (Fugit)’s character Kyle is secular, so he doesn’t really believe in the stuff that he’s experiencing. Which I think is a fun dynamic and a good place to have that character in. As the series progresses, Anderson will see Kyle’s side of things, and sometimes Kyle will see Anderson’s side of things. That’s a good interplay between them. But also I think we try not to take a stance. There is no “this is the way religion is” or “this is the way you should believe.” We try to keep things open to interpretation as much as possible. We don’t ever want to come off like this show is preaching or evangelizing in any way." - Robert Kirkman

Disclaimer: As with the previous part, the main villain is a rapist/serial killer. There's also graphic violence/gore and some nudity.

In addition to the usual content warning for 'Sin City' -- violence, nudity, etc -- I'm going to preface with this a warning: one of the villains is a child molester/killer. We don't actually see anything related to that but it's mentioned so I figured it's worth a heads up.

I think this is one of the stronger Sin City stories but if you're not a fan of the previous ones or Frank Miller's style in general it's probably not for you.

Kuljit Mithra: The Elektra Assassin comics feature many differing styles and it gave you more room to experiment than the DD graphic novel could. Did the both of you use the same technique, script-wise, or did you try some other approach? What were the different types of art styles you used?

Bill Sienkiewicz: Elektra Assassin employed a somewhat wider array of techniques because it tended to be a wilder ride. The DD graphic novel was actually much more restrained because, once the look for each character was established, it was fairly straightforward in its execution. Elektra was all over the place: "realistically" drawn characters interacting with caricatures interacting with cartoons interacting with photocopies interacting with "children's drawings". There were quite a few styles employed, but the determining factor for the choice of style was what the scene demanded. In essence, the scene dictated the style of artwork used, not vice versa.

Kuljit Mithra: When the series came out, some comics stores wouldn't sell me an issue of Elektra because I was under 18. Was there any concern at Epic about the comics getting into the 'wrong hands'? Were you or Miller concerned?

Bill Sienkiewicz: Not one bit. We weren't doing it for young kids. Matter of fact, when it came out the Dallas/Fort Worth newspaper did an article on Elektra stating "We've got to protect our kids from this". We used that quote in the ads for the trade paperback.
