Pulsar actually made a new script!
And I was drawing it but it just turned into random squiggly lines and black and white shapes. I feel like sleeping really early today so I'll finish the comic on monday.
You know it was funny how I remembered that we didn't make a comic last week about 5 days late. Just basically forgot about it. And pulsar doesn't pay any attention so..
A LONG TIME AGO

I on the other hand don't like Frank Millers stuff. His stuff has very annoying, supposedly "mature styles" (don't mean the drawings now) that just don't work in my opinion. Pretentious is probably the word I'd use to describe it.
I mostly enjoyed the Sin City movie because it didn't censor itself. Though like said, don't like the subject matter. I liked the V for Vendetta movie because I didn't watch it as a comic book movie.
Now that I have lost all my fans and friends...
I do think that most comics could be correctly made into movies. It's just hard (removed a long list of why its hard from here). I don't think translating the art style is important... Though these days that seems to be the only reason they call them "comic book movies". Only a few comics (Watchmen for example) are too tied to the unique medium of comics. Still, most comics are best left in the comic form.
On another note, comic to book translations would be fun to see.
This week: Graphic Novels in Movie Form
Posted by Mr. Pulsar on January 19, 2009, 00:00 EST
This weeks discussion is as the title declares, about the art form of Graphic Novels being adapted in to movie form.
This ideas usually tend to start out with my roommate, and they lead off usually to some interesting results.
As most of you probably know, The Watchmen is being released soon in theaters, whenever that dispute is taken care of. I had never read or honestly heard of the watchmen before my roomie started talking about the movie last year. I got a copy and could not put it down. It's obviously popular for a reason and Alan Moore is some kind of weird genius (with magnificent facial hair I may so boldly add).
Now Alan Moore has had bad luck in the past with people making movies after his graphic novels. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen for instance, as well as V for Vendetta, which, yes, I did not enjoy.
But the interesting thing is we got sir Snyder doing this adaptation, and his success with 300 should be shining through here. Personally I never really enjoy adaptations of graphic novels, the only exception being Sin City. Sin City is a graphic novel I love to death, Frank Miller holds a place in my heart as a wonderful writer and artist.
The biggest problem with the adaptation is capturing the art style and feel of the comic. The argument Moore made was with panels in a comic you can really analyze them, see them from different points of view. Have all the time in the world to make the experience you want to make. But in movies that reel just keeps on going. (I know this, I was a projectionist for 2 years! I'm certified to make this claim.)
When you get people waiting for a movie version of a comic, that kind of destroys the point. "Oh I'm waiting for them to make a movie out of it." Really, just, that destroys the whole meaning of a graphic novel, doesn't it? It's just taking the whole art form and bitch slapping it.
For fun, lets hear some input from you guys. Email me your favorite graphic novel thats been turned in to a movie and why you like/hate that.

I was gonna do a comic today but then remembered I have to be elsewhere today.
May or may not get something up later. Probably not.

I'm actually not misogynist. But I believe we live in, actually, a misandrist society (I mean shit, Firefox's spell check will find misogyny but not misandry?). People are easily allowed to make jokes about cocks and fat guys, but, as soon as it becomes something relating to a women people get very offended.
I think gender discrimination is stoooooooopid.
This country has a history of reverse discrimination and racism. The most notable one being the black oppression in to slavery. Growing up, it was always okay in school for kids of different ethnicity to say "Cracker" or "White trash" to a white student, but as soon as something like "Beaner" or "Red Skin" was said out the teacher would get involved and punish the kid. That is the whole issue with racism, if you allow reverse discrimination, it will only go in full circle each and every time.
The misogyny dates back to - as far as I know - Biblical times, what with the apple being eaten by Eve. Although honestly if you've ever read "Paradise Lost", it is portrayed as Adam choosing to leave the garden with Eve because he truly loves her and does not want to lose her company.
In 1920 Women gained suffrage, or, the equality they deserved in voting. So it was that, women were now completely equal to men. That should be the end of the story. >_>
I'm tired of writing now though. If you wanna send any responses to this, feel free.

New Years is here, etc. I'm 10 days late, I know.
Kimmo and I have been busy. I've been busy with "Certain things" myself.
Allow me to introduce you to a member of my clan, Lammy, yes her nickname is based off that crazy awesome game Unjammy Lammy. She is a Rock Band vocalist and damned good at it, her and I formed a band and are soon going to begin working on our first album.
Here is a video of her playing.
Another person I would like to note is an individual who goes by dieborg. She is a graphic designer here in Seattle and I'll probably be going to her for any logo work Kimmo and I need in the future.
Here is a link to her portfolio.
I'd like to talk about Steambot a little bit, but I think I won't. Yeah, that was a dick move, I apologize.
For some reason it decided to snow like a mother fucker here in Seattle this year. Leaving me sometimes stranded at home, needing rides to work. I did manage to go to work every day though, which to some is impressive considering just how bad the weather was. Not having a car in a big city like Seattle, sometimes, can be a pain in the ass.
One thing I would like to bring up is that there are a couple blastwave shirts still sitting in my apartment. Really people, I sent you emails. Respond! D:<
If you ordered one and don't have it yet, please send me an email. Several got returned due to bad addresses.
Just for fun I'm gonna start listing in my news posts what arts I'm currently in to at the moment.
Reading: Norse Mythology
WebComic of the moment: Kate Beaton
Band of the moment: Mr. Bungle

There I'm done with this long post. D:<

Merry Christmas to all of you. This year has been pretty good so lets let it go out with a fucking bang.
To celebrate, I will be doing the remaining TGSA comics of this month in stick figure form while Kimmo takes his much deserved vacation. Go rest man, you deserve it.

I am officially starting my christmas vacation. Atleast as far as this comic is concerned.
Will be spending the holidays at my parents place, where no screens suitable for computer graphics exsist. Another lego thing could be possible though.
Be back in january!
Um oh yeah

Forgot to say:
I was working on school work and few other things I had hanging over my head this weekend. Trying to get things out of the way. Didn't really have time or the mental capacity to work on a comic.
Posted by Morr on December 1, 2008, 05:29 EST
It's a comic about Bob Steve and Charlie! 3 parts of the metal city who have developed sentience!

I uh. I was drawing some things. Trying to get rid of the constant need to draw metal.
Was thinking of doing a Cortex Command level like this.
