  1. As far as Well-written Superhero novels go, Austin Grossman’s Soon I will be Invincible is pretty alright. It’s a little uneven, and it gets a little childish and amateur with some of the “deconstruction” bits near the end but it’s better than any other Marvel/DC novel I’ve read.

  2. Good discussion!

    One way around clunky narration in comics is an artist who understands the nuance and subtlety of the human body and the different ways it expresses the unseen and either betrays (or confirms) what is being spoken. If you’ve got that, there’s no need for what should be subtext to be splayed open in a cap box. (I can dream can’t I?) ((it also depends on genre))

    It’s also a much more enjoyable experience and ultimately lends longevity to the story. There’s more there to excavate. (what’s that? I can’t hear you all the up here in my own ass :P)

    I think this kind of underlines much of what you’ve already said on several occasions David.

    Also, my favorite quote: “It was the 80’s. Blood was different back then. Probably because of all the cocaine.”

  3. Unrelated, but David, PLEASE explain this bullshit:


  4. @Jeremy: Why? I didn’t make it.

  5. As the foremost expert on all things black superheroes, I look to you when I’m confused about Black Panther. Why does Marvel feel the need for an African King to ditch his origin and become the American Panther to be relevant? Is being relevant worth losing one of the things that define who T’Challa is?

  6. @Jeremy? Well it is part of fear itself…Maybe being overwhelmed by American culture and mores is what The Panther fears the most.

    One can only hope.

  7. @Jeremy: I can’t call it, man. I don’t read that book, I’m not particularly interested in Fear Itself, and I don’t know anything about the twist. It looks dumb, though.

  8. If you’re interested in radio plays, you need to find a way to listen to BBC Radio 4. At least one a day man.
