They Speak English in What?

storm“What country you from?”  “”What?”  “What ain’t no country I ever heard of. They speak English in what?” Samuel L. Jackson’s memorable phrase from Pulp Fiction is humorous but also highlights an interesting aspect of pop culture when it comes to our own perception of other places in the world, including through the medium of comics.

In the ongoing wake of All-New Marvel NOW! the first issue of Storm was recently released (the second issue is in stores this week), the first for the heroine in her own self-titled series. After surviving a brief encounter with a tidal wave, Storm finds herself in the small country of Santo Marco. Santo Marco has some history with the X-Men and by extension Storm, having been the small country which the Brotherhood of Mutants once overran and ruled before being driven out. Storm arrives to find herself welcomed by the locals, some of whom seem to worship her. Soon the army show up and engages in some subtle sabre-rattling against the heroine informing her that she cannot use her mutant name, as mutant names are not allowed, and then informs her that mutants aren’t Storm_1_Preview_2allowed either. This leads to her departure and inevitable return to stand up to the army brutes.

It is an interesting episode and one which digs a little deeper than most comics do for context. Instead of some supervillain having a plan to destroy a city (or the world) the threat here is not something which can be easily overcome. There is no power punch or melding into shadows which will help the island of Santo Marco, instead it requires a long-term approach, and to its credit that is part of what Storm returns to do. Before the army intervenes she is seen helping to clear the beach of the village from debris.

An interesting question though is where is Santo Marco? The medium of comics has a tendency to make up places as a necessity to replicate modern conflicts, but is there any benefit in that? Based on its name and the representation of its setting, Santo Marco would appear to be either in the Caribbean or in South America somewhere, but its name is generic enough, as is its setting, that it could really be anywhere in the region (or even potentially further away.)  DC Comics does a similar thing with some of its own countries – in the 1980s Kahndaq became a substitute for Iraq and later the home of Bane became an equally obscure and non-existent country known as Santa Prisca.

In current events right now, the world is seeing a fairly tumultuous period, with tensions running high in Gaza, Iraq and Ukraine, while in North America, usually considered benign by world standards, the race riots in Ferguson are igniting an underlying dialogue which is rarely spoken about the state of racial relations in the United States. Ferguson is an especially interesting case though, as many have heard of Ukraine, Iraq and Gaza, but how before last week had ever heard of Ferguson? Other than residents of Saint Louis, the name probably meant nothing and might have been mistaken for a number of other things than an actual place.

Comics is perhaps more than most mediums one of absolute escapism. There is very little basis for superheroes exhibiting super abilities as it relates to the modern world in most senses. Is the realm of escapism so entrenched though that it is unable to tackle current events in their actual setting? In a historical perspective of the medium, the answer would be no. One need not look farther than the first appearance of Captain America to see that heroes could and did attack real world problems (even if at the time that this was being used partially as a propaganda tool.)  There are two approaches to the problem of the non-places. The first is that they don’t exist and therefore they don’t actually represent real-world problems, and by extension that they are more easily disregarded as just more comic fluff. The evil dictators and army generals are just exaggerated versions of real life people, and the caricatures are so over-the-top as to be unbelievable. The second approach to this would be that the in being nowhere that these places could in fact be anywhere.  That Santo Marco could be Gaza or Crimea and that it forces people to think outside the box of what they perceive to be the ills of the world.

Of the two approaches, the end result probably comes down to the individual reader. Some readers look for pure escapism in comics and don’t want to face real world problems when trying to escape.  Others look for something deeper in their reading and look for more connections. Interestingly though, that both possibilities exist is an indication that the comic book companies are trying to play the middle ground, being neither too ignorant nor to divisive. Perhaps once again the bottom line determines the finished product, but I think in either case that it is time for the valuable medium to stop playing pretend and to get real.

Stewart Pulls (Out) a Weiner

It all began when Judge Dread artist Ulises Farinas took JL8 creator Yale Stewart to task for Stewart’s habit of creating pictures around tragedies to raise money. Working in politics, the fact Stewart does this has never phased me, as I see it every day with organizations’ opportunistic nature. As long as the money raised made it to the charities, I tended to not really care. The latest of those had to do with the tragedy in Ferguson.

jl8-ferguson-625x351But quickly, the dust-up escalated (as things tend to do online):

The discussion of Stewart’s fundraising habits quickly shifted to his habit of showing off his own member to women. Stewart has been accused of pulling an Anthony Weiner, sending texts of his privates to women, with some saying these were unsolicited. From there, things escalated more, with Stewart saying his mother was receiving rude/threatening calls, and Farinas also claiming threats.

Stewart then said he was taking time off from his work.

2014-08-19_2312  2014-08-19_2313_001Stewart also deleted his Twitter account in the process.

Numerous individuals that I know claimed Stewart’s habits was an open secret, known in the industry and that there were photos showing both of Stewart’s heads, proving it was him. As expected, numerous online individuals rallied around Stewart, shaming those making claims and generally throwing vitriol their way (cause why believe the victim!?). Then 4Chan came to the rescue, turning up a photo of Stewart in the buff.

With photo evidence, Stewart has made a formal apology, (sort of) admitting to the exhibitionist acts:

Good morning.

As some of you may be aware, there have been some rumors circulating about my personal conduct with women in the comics industry. The accusation is that I’ve sent unsolicited intimate photos of myself to fans, colleagues, or possibly both.

Sexual harassment is incredibly serious business, and I believe anyone who has followed me for any period of time knows that I often speak against it. No one should be subject to such behavior. It’s invasive, disrespectful, and occasionally dangerous.

Have I sent intimate photos of myself to women before? Yes. I’ll absolutely admit to that. As a 26 year-old bachelor with a relatively healthy sex life in the internet age, these things happen. However, every photo sent was in direct response to either a photo received or a specific request.

Or so I thought.

Two years ago, I was engaged in two separate relationships with women whom I was sexually active with. Given the nature of these relationships, my experiences in past relationships, and various dialogues with these women, I thought it had been established within each relationship that intimate or explicit photos were acceptable, possibly even desired.

I GROSSLY misread the situation.

It has been brought to my attention that both of these women were uncomfortable with my behavior, and needless to say, I’m absolutely disgusted with myself. How I could so horribly misinterpret the situation confounds me, but that confusion pales in comparison to the shame of knowing that I did the very thing to these two women that I openly chastise people for on a regular basis. Also, beyond that, that these women felt this way for TWO YEARS without me knowing and attempting to make amends, which is wholly unacceptable in its own right.

I have reached out to both of these women and have made private apologies, but I felt it was my responsibility to make a public one as well. As stated earlier, I believe sexual harassment to be an incredibly serious issue, and while the harassment in question was a terrible and ignorant mistake, it does not change the fact that that’s what this was, and I accept full responsibility.

I strive to treat everyone with respect, as I feel those who know me personally or follow my comics work would attest, and as such I hope that helps frame how sorry I truly am that all of this happened. The best I can do is own up to it, acknowledge that I made an incredible error in judgement, and finally, make sure that I learn from this mistake and never repeat it moving forward.

In addition, if there’s anyone else out there who feels like I’ve made them uncomfortable, on any level, please let me know. Clearly I’ve misread situations before, and I don’t want to go years again thinking nothing’s wrong only to learn I’ve hurt someone.

Finally, I’ll be making a donation of $1000 to RAINN, as they’re an organization at the forefront of both preventing and aiding victims of sexual harassment and assault. Hopefully my small donation will in some way help them in educating even just one person, preventing another situation such as this.

My deepest, sincerest apologies to all.

-Yale

While we don’t have hard evidence contradicting Yale’s statement, we have been told by a few that pics were received even though they were not dating Stewart, and in fact some were in a relationship with other individuals.

While sending pics like this is quite ok in a consenting relationship, doing so unsolicited is wrong, and harassment. Harassment is wrong, period, whether it was Yale sending pics to women, people calling Stewart’s mother, or things directed at Farinas. For each of these incidents that occur, it seems like the industry, and its fanbase, never learn long term lessons.

Hopefully Stewart has learned his lesson, and his positive actions going forward are honest and sincere (and for gods sake man, quit it with the dick pics!). It’s not impossible to move forward after one’s “sexual exploits” become news, just ask Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, or Eliot Spitzer (though Clinton is the one who’s made it to the other side the best).

But for now, Stewart might want to take some time off and think things through. When he returns, a pen name might be a good idea. We suggest Gustavo Stealth.

Review: Howard Lovecraft and the Three Kingdoms

howard lovecraft and the three kingdoms coverThe advent of steampunk as a somewhat established genre has brought along a lot of friends from the past. Rooted most strongly in the works of Verne, the genre has also deviated a bit from Verne’s original works as it has evolved in the modern pop culture. Seemingly in the search for more steampunk material, fans of the genre have delved deeper into the past and found some other source material, namely steampunk horror. Although potentially typified by Poe or Shelley, the real resurgence in horror from this time has no doubt been H.P. Lovecraft. His horror stories are more popular today than probably at any other time (including when he was alive) and other mediums (including board games and video games) use his inspiration to create their own works.

The collected volume of Howard Lovecraft and the Three Kingdoms from Arcana Studios is not so different. It opens with a quote from Poe and quickly introduced us to a dying elder Lovecraft and his son. A part of Lovecraftian fiction was his own interaction with his work, in which he himself explored his own horrors through his pen and paper. In this case it would seem as though the elder were the one to really undertake the journey into this dark despair and to record the thoughts by way of the book. As a reading of this work this makes more sense, because although the younger Lovecraft is in fact the Lovecraft, it doesn’t exactly read like that.  The father’s weeping is more consistent with the author’s works, not the dynamic nature of the youngster.

lovecraftBefore I get too far ahead of myself though, I would like to talk about Santa Claus. It is not because Santa Claus plays a very important role in this book, but rather because he shouldn’t play one at all. The idea of Santa Claus providing gifts to children is an idea that is purely 20th century, and as this book is based in 1894, it is a bit of an anachronism when little Howard gets his first Lovecraftian torture novel from jolly old Saint Nick. Am I being too picky on the anachronism?  Not really, because it is the anachronism which actually makes this graphic novel work. For those more familiar with Lovecraft’s work, they will find among the author’s thoughts some subtle and not-so-subtle opinions on race and gender, neither of which would really fly in the modern world as opinions to be held outside of the far right of the spectrum. These opinions which exist in his work are also anachronisms, and if they are replaced by clearly misunderstood aspects of modern day Yuletide, then it is for the better. Out go the remnants of outdated thinking, in comes a tentacled creature named Spot (the name Spot for a pet being a bit of an anachronism as well.)

The end process of this selective process of finding the right balance between modern and past is something akin to a children’s book, which to be fair seems to be the point anyway. Dark and dangerous is replaced with cuddly and squishy, with the terrible Lovecraftian monsters being no scarier than the creatures in “Where the Wild Things Are.” The end result is basically a Lovecraftian tale aimed at children, and one which is successful in removing the scariest parts of the writer’s bag of tricks. Is it for adults? I would say equally yes, particularly those that do like a bit of dark Victorian to go with their daily lives. It is maybe not a groundbreaking work, but pays homage to the writer without taking itself too seriously and ends up being a fun read with matching artwork to complement the stories.

Why Mockingbird is a Great Fit for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

palickiAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hit the gates last year full of momentum from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but perhaps too high on expectations. Inside of the shared universe, it faced stiff competition to meet the same level as the blockbuster movies while still maintaining the distinctly different world of television. In a certain sense, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. resembled something like an expansion draft for a professional sports team. There was the well-known though not as gifted veteran (Coulson) and a group of mostly unknowns. The story line was nothing special, especially in the televised world where we get movie-like experiences on a weekly basis from a number of television series (think Breaking Bad) and the production value while impressive from a television series, was still not what we expected coming from the Avengers or Iron Man. There were some notable guests stars, but to go back to the expansion team analogy, this is more akin to the new team advertising for other team’s stars rather that its own. With the news that Adrianne Palicki is joining the group (on a part-time basis for now) as the relatively well-known character Mockingbird, this signifies something else. To continue with the analogy, Palicki/Mockingbird is like the first signing of a major free agent.

There are two aspects to this signing, as it relates first to Palicki and then to Mockingbird. Palicki is well enough known to fans of television, though she has never really had a breakout role. Perhaps she is better known to comic fans as being the star of the never aired Wonder Woman series, which never got past a failed pilot. While comic fans can have a tendency to be overly picky in some regards, they also tend to stay loyal to actors and actresses who willingly portray themselves in roles that others might think to be too “geeky”.  In the realms of comics, sci-fi and fantasy, otherwise unknown names like Alan Tudyk or Summer Glau elicit at least recognition and more likely fandom (in this case because of their association with Firefly/Serenity). Palicki is likely not to that level of cult status, but she is well known due to Wonder Woman as well as appearances on Smallville and in G.I. Joe.

mockWhile this might perhaps bode well for her acceptance as an actress in the series, there is also the consideration of the character Mockingbird. One might be able to argue that Phil Coulson is kind of a member of the Avengers (at least as much as Jarvis is) but Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. seems to have been lacking a bit in superhero star power.  Mockingbird is by no means an A-list member of Marvel, but what she does bring is a degree of relevance and credibility which has been lacking in the series. She is after all the first real Avenger from the comics to make it into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a semi-regular.

This could mean more for the future of the Cinematic Universe as well. While it has not really been explored as of yet, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and other television series (such as the new Agent Carter series) have the potential to act as feeders for the films. One of the criticisms of the Avengers (and granted there were only a few) is that the team was primarily a boys’ club. It likely will be mostly for the second installment of the series as well, though with the addition of the Scarlet Witch to help balance things out a bit. With the upcoming Ant-Man film, it seems likely that the Wasp will also be joining the team. Might the same fate await Mockingbird? Unlike some actors or actresses that don’t tend to stray too far from either television or film, Palicki is at least somewhat of a crossover actress, having done both television and film to some degree. With the established credibility of Mockingbird as an Avengers character as well as eliminating the need for a background story (thanks to her appearance in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), she might be a perfect fit for a third Avengers movie, taking the total of female characters to four (unless we see Carol Danvers or Jennifer Walters at some point), and it might be done through the subtle addition of the characters into the shared universe.

Doing so helps not only the films but the television shows.  At the moment Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. seems light years away from a film like Guardians of the Galaxy, but with a bridge between the two, it allows the films to bring the shows to their level.  It might give fans of the show some hope, as well as providing a jumping on point for the more casual fans of the movie, all by way of a B-list actress and a mostly forgotten character.

Adrianne Palicki Joins Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

palickiIt’s being reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Adrianne Palicki, who rose to fame on Friday Night Lights, has been tapped to guest-star as superspy Bobbi Morse aka Mockingbird on Marvel‘s television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She will debut in the fifth episode of the series.

The debut of Mockingbird was teased by Patton Oswalt at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Mockingbird is not only an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., but also an Avenger, so it’s a character that potentially bridges the television show and movies. She also for a time was married to Clint Barton aka Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner in the movies.

Palicki is no stranger to shows based on comics. She was tapped to play Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in the David E. Kelly series that never made it past the pilot. She appeared on Smallville. In 2006 she was also in the Aquaman television movie (there was a television movie!?). She also has appeared in the second G.I. Joe movie, and listed for the third.

 

Comic Fantasy Football

SuperPro 1Unless you’ve been living a cave the last few weeks you know football season is soon approaching if not by all commercial coming up advertising this network or that network. Then by someone in your office telling you about their lame-ass fantasy football team. For the record I have never played fantasy football and never plan to because I root for my team and my team only (Yeah I’m that guy!).

During a long flight for work I got bored and thought what it would be like if two of the things I am most passionate about crossed over and so I give you the ultimate comic fantasy football team (please note only Marvel characters were used because I don’t have a large working knowledge of the DC Universe).

I present to you, the comic book fantasy football team!

Owner – Tony Stark, Iron Man, because hey if there aren’t two people in sports and comics that live almost identical lives it is Jerry Jones and Tony Stark.

GM – Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic, with number nerds taking over sports and the move towards analytics I pick Marvel’s number one nerd.

Head Coach – Steve Rogers, Captain America, a coach must command the respect of everyone in the room and he’s Marvel’s top dog.

QB – Peter Parker, Spider-Man, you want your quarterback to be athletic and intelligent enough to get you in and out of the right plays. There is a lot of Andrew Luck in Spider-Man as the quarterback just cool enough that he is still respected, a nerd at heart and smart enough to put it all together when it counts and then there’s this because the QB lands all the chicks.

RB – T’Challa, Black Panther, first I know what you are thinking why not Quicksilver or someone like that? In football if you only have one talent it’s easy to scheme for and erase (as you will see when you get to the defense). Secondly running backs need to have cat-like quickness and agility. Finally, insert race card here, most skill position players are black in football so the King of Wakanda gets the nod.

FB – Cain Marko, Juggernaut, Bo Schembechler famously said once “I recruit fullbacks that 6’0 because when they are done playing for me they will be 5’9”.” The fullback is bulldozer and opens the holes so why not take the Juggernaut. I know up until this point it’s been only superheroes, but there was the brief stint when Juggernaut was part of the X-men so I’m taking him as my fullback.

WR1 – Richard Rider, Nova, you have to have a receiver that can take the top off a defense so why not the Human Rocket. With success of the Guardian of the Galaxy I think we can all envision a Nova movie coming soon.

WR2 – Matt Murdock, Daredevil, I know what you are thinking. Why Daredevil? The answer is simple. A second wide receiver is usually the most reliable. He finds the weakness in zones, is a tactician at running routes and just gets the job done. This epitomizes Daredevil, he’s not Marvel’s biggest hero, but series after series he just delivers a great book.

WR3 – Genis Vell, Captain Marvel, a typical third wide receiver is usually a combination of the first two wide receivers (Genis Vell has super strength & speed along with Spacial Awareness), but also not quite as consistent. So of course Genis Vell is a third wide receiver. When he was re-introduced as Captain Marvel instead of Legacy he looked awesome and his character in Avengers Forever gave him a good story to go alongside his new look. But like most third wide receivers he is considered polarizing.

TE1 – Luke Cage, Powerman, the tight end has to be tough enough to make catches over the middle along with being strong enough to hold up as an inline blocker. Cage gives you both and can’t you see him having a big season and then holding out for a better contract?

LT – Peter Rasputin, Colossus, the left tackle is blind side protector and “a dancing bear.” Left tackle is also a finesse position and while there are other powerhouses out there this position suits Colossus more than other heroes.

RT – Ben Grimm, The Thing, Grimm serves as the perfect counter to Colossus as left tackle because the right tackle is a mauler and road grader and more of a power player. Few in the Marvel Universe are more about power than The Thing. It also doesn’t hurt he was an All-American at ESU.

C – Hank McCoy, Beast, another Marvel Hero with a football background Hank McCoy is the prototypical center. He is smart enough to recognize defense and put the rest of the O-Line in the right protections.

LG – Elvin Haliday, Rage, here is another character that may come as bit of a shock, but I want a big physical O-Line. Not only does Rage fit the criteria, but he also essentially wears a football uniform for his costume.

RG – James Proudstar, Warpath, because of his mutant abilities he is the ideal right guard. The right guard usually does most pulling, trap and wham blocking so he needs to have size, strength and the ability to move well. Plus if you were on the opposing team and you saw this for a guy’s team pic you would probably think twice about crossing him.

Part two coming soon. The DEFENSE!!! Let me know what you think, and your fantasy team below, and as always thanks for reading!

The two join a cast that includes Eddie Izzard, Noah Taylor, Susan Heyward, Olesya Rulin, Max Fowler and Adam Godley.

The series is Playstation’s first attempt at scripted programming, something increasingly being added to video game networks.

The series is currently 10 episodes.

Marketing Monday: Who is the Top Dog on Facebook?

It’s Monday which means a new Marketing Monday and checking out how the various Facebook fanpages have grown or shrunk over the past week.

Overall, the pages continued to grow, this week gaining 261772 individuals total, a 0.91% increase. Growth has slowed since SDCC, but is till a decent amount of people, and comparable to last week.

There was very little movement as far as ranks this week. I’ve added arrows next to what has increased in ranking. Hopefully it makes sense.

facebook pages total likes 8.18.14Marvel moved back into the top spot, bumping ComicBook.com to second place. It’s clear ComicBook.com is buying likes by running ads, as I’ve seen the ads myself, and the page continues to not generate much reach, indicating their results are poor, and likely not worth the money being spent.
facebook pages new likes 8.18.14

As usual it’s the percentage change where we see the most movement. Publisher Magnetic Press has jumped into first place by pushing their recent and upcoming releases. ComicBook.com has slipped to third followed by ComicBlitz. Small Press Expo has jumped up as their convention approaches.

facebook pages percent 8.18.14

And here’s the top posts from the last week:
