Scott Kurtz unloads both barrels on Wizard entertainment

PvPonline -- Dear Kurt, One of the marketing drones for Wizard magazine's shitty conventions sent Scott Kurtz (of the webcomic PVP) a generic marketing letter, and referred to him as "Kurt." And then Scott does what he does best, and got curt with the Wizard convention promoters.
First of all my name is not Kurt. It’s Scott. Scott Kurtz. It’s written right there in the email you just pretended to send me. Not that my name’s important or that you are actually aware of who you’re addressing. I’m a pioneer in my field and a “tastemaker” with a large podium, why would it be important to get my name right? Let’s not dawdle on such mundane details. Your conventions are total horseshit, so it’s wise to stop branding them with the name Wizard. But no amount of polishing is going to make me want to attended any of the 5 turds your company is going to crap out in 2010, especially when you schedule them against other shows in some bullshit dick measuring contests that serves no other purpose but to fracture an already dying industry that I have nostalgic ties to. Remember Mike Wieringo? Remember how you guys only cared about him when he was the “hot artist” for a window of time and then you quickly forgot his name despite the fact that he was producing some of the best work of his career on Fantastic Four with Mark Waid? And then remember how after he died you had the balls to name one of your panel rooms the Mike Wieringo room? I will eternally hate everyone associated with your company for that. For eternity. For Jack Kirby’s version of Eternity where the concept is embodied as a giant man made up of the universe. That’s me, hating you for the Mike Wieringo thing. Forever. . . .

Wally Wood's "22 Panels That Always Work"

Wally Wood's 22 Panels That Always Work on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
'Once shrouded in secrecy, Wally Wood would selectively give assistants and those close to him three 8x10 photocopies of comic panels that bore the absolute essence of drawing comic book panels. 22 images in total, they held the secret to a comic book illustrator's success, and those who learned from them benefited from the master's wisdom. The panels were gold, but were not packaged in such a way that was easily disseminated. 'Years later as an Editor at Marvel, Wood's former assistant, Larry Hama, needed a tool to give direction to his would-be artists. He had two copies of the three sheets. With the help of another ex-assistant of Wally Wood's (whom he recalls may have been Paul Kirchner), Hama reassembled the "Tri-Force" of Wally Wood sheets. On the back of a Marvel art Bristol board, Hama wrote the now-famous caption "Wally Wood's 22 Panels That Always Work"...'

APE: Kate Beaton's Hark, A Vagrant

Hark, a vagrant: 214 We've linked to Kate Beaton's wonderful historical comics many times before, but as long as she keeps making them we'll keep reading them and bringing you a selection of the best. I got a chance to meet her at APE yesterday (though it took me awhile to find her, as she was cleverly hidden in the program book). I bought a copy of her book which she graciously signed and sketched in. Please click through and read, like, everything she's ever done. It'll make you a better person.
