Speaking of L. Sprague de Camp, I did read his bio on Lovecraft. Does that count for something?
Disney Confirms THE AVENGERS Will Be 3D; Pixar
Hooray, more post-convert. Do us all a favor, until studios either commit to filming in 3d OR using the better/more expensive post-convert process that I have heard so much about...DON'T PAY INFLATED TICKET PRICES!!!!!!!
Yeah, **** that. If it wasn't filmed for 3D, why bother?
Wow. Such a quietly consistent book. Beautifully done. Willingham is so confident and comfortable with characters that we all know and love. I don't need to rush out and buy single issues on this, but I do pre-order the trades. They are like the best warm cup of tea in front of a fire. Pure comfort food for the soul. I have to compare these to Sandman, which I loved...but always felt was too smart for the room. This is like Sandman for regular folks.(PLEASE don't slam me with complaints. I loved Sandman...it just felt sometimes that you needed a lit degree.) Anyway, it's a beautiful book and if someone ever gets smart(Showtime/HBO...or Fx/AMC) it will make a tremendous series. Hopefully with Once Upon a Time doing well it will force the issue.
I am already on record with my love/awe of the BOYS, this mini covering the backstory of Billy Butcher could have been 'as expected'. And, to a point, it was. But things that you knew were so much sadder/maddening when played out. I think this helped to flesh out what could have been a very monochromatic character(see Ennis' Punisher for an example of that/sorry Adgy). Turns out that Butcher knows what a 'orrible bastard he is, and his relationship with his father lets you see where that came from. His 'goodbye' to dad is horribly appropriate(and inaproppriate at the same time). Just hammers home the sadness that this great story has an end in sight. Expect much praise from me as that moment gets nearer.
spoilers...they show Terror as a pup and do a nice job of letting you understand why BB has a wee dug. I still have not forgiven Ennis for that...
