"I'm not expecting to capture new readers with my book. But where are the longtime TOS fans who, by any sort of reckoning, should be hungry for new material?"

"The frustrating element for me is that, based on the many positive reviews, STNV has solved all the 'problems' traditionally associated with TREK comics. The characters and sets all look like themselves. They characters 'sound' like themselves. The plots are not 'comic-booky.' The titles are not goofy. And TREK fans mostly don't know I am the Great Satan, so where's the problem?" - John Byrne

'They've now been through several waves of creators coming and going, multiple storytelling fads, endless "event" books, countless occasions where the Internet was supposed to "break in half," a few editorial administrations at the Big Two publishers...they've seen it all. We've got online pundits actually feeling dirty and shameful because they find themselves trying to analyze Marvel NOW! or the New 52 or whatever other bullshit marketing ploys the Big Two are trying to put over on us. But what else is there to talk about, if you still dig on the idea of superhero comic books and still believe in their potential for providing a bit of forward-thinking entertainment? Hopefully, this'll give them something new to talk about, something different to think about.' - Joe Casey

No real new information here, just me gassing on about things in the solicits that caught my eye. Ignore if that sounds boring to you. )

Dark Horse recently revived the old Gold Key property Turok, Dinosaur Hunter. He was a comic book character first, but he's perhaps best known these days for the video games.



Anyway, it's a Native American fighting dinosaurs. How can you go wrong with that, right? Two issues in and Jim Shooter's doing some wacky stuff mixing and matching the people of different geographies and historical periods, which the patchwork setting of the series provides him ample opportunity for.

In dinosaur country, anyone can be a god )

Given the huge level of respect for Grant Morrison among critics and creators alike, I've always find it a little weird how almost no writers try to imitate his approach. Usually, whenever there's a hot creator, you can find a trail of imitators. So I was quite pleased to find that, with the latest issue of Superman, the creative team's borrowing Morrison's "everything is canon!" approach.

Spot all the references! )
