Linkage Maximus

Roll Out!!!

Tony Whitt (and a few others) discusses the Orson Scott Card issue over at Comicscape. As always, insightful stuff. I'm of two minds on the subject, a man's personal views (as long as they aren't psychotic) should not be taken into acount when he gets hired for a job. If he can write good sci-fi, so be it. But, I also think if you go around throwing your opinions about like you are the be-all-end-all on the subject, then you leave yourself open for scrutiny from open minded folks, and in turn it portrays Marvel in a ore negative light than they already are, so I'd think they would reconsider hiring you. But, this is Marvel we're talking about, we all know how they view the gay community just look at Dorian's (you may have to scroll down a bit, apologies) recent post about a Howard the Duck issue featuring a gay man, or how about they're Rawhide Kid mini from a few years ago. Oh, Mr. Whitt also has a rundown of the week in comics too.

Speaking of Dorian...that's one of the funniest things I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

His better half, at least in the blogosphere, Mike just announced the winners of the Swamp Thing: Bad Seed TPB giveaway. Go see if you won, I didn't. I'm almost positive it was rigged!!! Wait, I didn't enter, never mind.

Their dog, Tom has a look at PS238 and a few "Best of" lists if you scroll for a bit, including one about his own blog.

JB, over at the Bacardi Show has posted one of his favorite Spirit illustrations. good stuff, it also serves as the cover to the Spirit Casebook I believe. Scrolling there will get you a look at some upcoming TV shows, and another set of "Best of" lists.

Fred Hembeck talks about Will Eisner. Great stuff.

New Permanent Damage up. More Eisner related stuff, and probably the best damn title ever: A Schematic of The End Times.

And finally,

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly has a look at the years worst films. Remeber what I said about Little Black Book? Yeah, I was being kind...
