For the record, I would totally watch this
I just read the first volume of Jack Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus and it's impossible to overstate just how amazing it is. To steal a line from Superbad, looking into these pages is like hearing the Beatles for the first time.
The frenetic action and the rooftop fighting so common on the superhero set did not just materialize out of nowhere. Mr. Kirby remembered much of it from his Depression-era youth on New York’s Lower East Side, where, he once told an interviewer, the incessant fights among rival gangs were often staged up and down fire escapes and during running battles across tenement rooftops.
Dave Sim is the author of the Cerberus comic, which is noteworthy for it's grand scope and for achieving more than any indie comic before. He is also noteworthy for having gone right off the rails while working on Cerberus, and injecting bizarre Feminist conspiracies and misogyny into his comic.
He is apparently still batshit about Feminism, as you can tell from this excerpt from his blog:
1. A mother who works a full-time job and delegates to strangers the raising of her children eight hours a day, five days a week does just as good a job as a mother who hand-rears her children full time.
2. It makes great sense for the government to pay 10 to 15,000 dollars a year to fund a daycare space for a child so its mother - who pays perhaps 2,000 dollars in taxes - can be a contributing member of society.
3. A woman's doctor has more of a valid claim to participate in the decision to abort a fetus than does the father of that fetus.
4. So long as a woman makes a decision after consulting with her doctor, she is incapable of making an unethical choice.
5. A car with two steering wheels, two gas pedals and two brakes drives more efficiently than a car with one steering wheel, one gas pedal and one brake which is why marriage should always be an equal partnership.
This is a completely amazing blog. Superstars of comic book illustration sharing their personal sketches of famous authors and literary characters.
