Okay, so, this is pretty great.
Ray Harryhausen creatures
These creatures danced in my dreams as a child, up at night silently watching the black and white tv screen.
By request, my vintage copy(s) of Goethe’s Faust.
Here’s another one.
This version is of unknown date (1920s?), published in Barcelona. The only clue is a Brazilian library stamp, again no date.
Sorry for pic quality, I decided not to scan as the book is rather fragile.
If you missed it at Emerald City, here’s the panel I was on about comic book dystopias. Me, Greg Rucka (talking about Lazarus); also, Nick Pitarra (Manhattan Projects), Joe Harris (Great Pacific), Simon Roy (Prophet), Ed Brisson and Johnny Christmas (Sheltered). If you like a bunch of writers and artists talking about how we’re all doomed, you may enjoy this.
David Brothers (who edits Lazarus), and who is a generally all-around nice guy, moderates.
So, here’s Seth Meyers’ show from Tuesday night, March 11. He’s doing the funny, and then around minute 20, first guest Rachel Maddow comes out. And around minute 23 and 30 seconds, they start talking comics.
I’m still in geek-fugue about this. It’s always flattering to get a shout out, but to get a shout out from not one, but two people I hold in such high esteem…
…yeah, I’ll be over here in the corner, grinning and giggling.
Maddow is such a namedropper.
(Seriously: great mainstream callout to my pal, Greg Rucka. SWEET.)
Random comics/design-y thing that occurred to me—
So, DC did a bunch of lenticular covers and people went wild about ‘em, but I have to assume they’re expensive to create and print. I’m wondering if it’s possible to just do a lenticular logo sorta patched to the cover stock, so you’d have a static cover image and a slightly 3D-ish logo. Something like the weird oscilloscope image that moves with the book logo either superimposed on top or as part of the lenticular image. How awesome would that look?
Which means it’s probably not cost effective and blah blah facts logic blah.
