"Nick is a character who has been around for a good few years now but I don't think has really taken off yet, which is surprising considering how prominent the movie Fury is in that franchise. Nick has legacy attached to him because of who his father was, has involvement in contemporary S.H.I.E.L.D., etc., but still hasn't been in the spotlight. I tried to approach the story with the reader in mind and thought "what would get me excited about Fury?," then things clicked into place." - Declan Shalvey

So, uh, there's this Youtube guy called hbomberguy...

I don't know how to start threads.

Anyway, this guy did a video on the Killing Joke movie and why it's bad and how Alan Moore inadvertently helped kill comics. I thought it'd be interesting to post for obvious reasons.

Though what he does say that I haven't heard anyone say before is how the adaptation ignores a hell of a lot of the stuff that made the Killing Joke feel alive and interesting, and how Liefeldian sparse, nonexistent backgrounds are really fucking shitty for a comic and not just bad art. Background detail can really add a lot to a work.

He talks about this subject in other videos, and it's something I've been noticing in media in general. I recently replayed Chrono Trigger and noticed how the pixel thin strings in Marle's crossbow thwip when she fires it.Or watching a Jackie Chan movie and seeing how there's a clear rythym to the kicks and punches that don't exist in a lot of less awesome American action movies.

TL;DR details are hella important.
