Open Culture has a re-vamped trailer for a film adaptation of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius’ comic The Incal. One that never happened. “[Incal‘s] success made it a logical candidate for film adaptation, and so director Pascal Blais brought together artists from Heavy Metal magazine (in which Mœbius first published some of his best known work) to make it happen. It resulted in nothing more than a trailer, but what a trailer; you can watch a recently revamped edition of the one Blais and his collaborators put together in the 1980s at the top of the post.” (Thanks, Felipe!)

Author and comics creator Marjorie Liu is interviewed by Nerds of Color and The Beat about her latest comic, Monstress. “There are a couple ways to describe Monstress.

The Daily Banter has a galley of artist Jeff Bennett’s “Wars of Kinkade,” which integrate Star Wars into the paintings of Thomas Kinkade. “But one modern artist has finally figured out what Kinkade’s scenes are lacking. What they’ve always really needed to be complete. And that’s a full-scale invasion by Star Wars‘s Evil Galactic Empire.”
At Pornokitsch, Rose Biggin writes a list about writing Irene Adler.
Sometimes I really want to like something. I really, really do. And it’s not bad and I don’t actively dislike like it. I just don’t like it. I love the film, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. It’s one of my favorite films of 2014 and it’s one I recommend. But the comic version, […]
Do you dare read the final chapter in the Gutter’s own Carol’s 31 Days of Horror blogathon? “Spookoween 2015 is winding down and it looks like I made it through.

It’s the second ten days or so of 31 Days of Horror with the Gutter’s own Carol. “Spookoween 2015 got a little rougher for me. I’m a little more ambivalent about some of the films I watched for Part II. One I even started and stopped. This time we have two appearances by Vincent Price, […]

I had an uninvited guest once, and it was inside me. If you’ve ever seen a sonogram of a cancer tumor, a demon analogy isn’t too much hyperbole. Tumors look objectively wicked and wrong. The barbs of its flesh under my own skin pricked. And while it was there, I was never really alone. But […]
At Tor.com, Liz Bourke writes about the double standard in how strong female characters are evaluated: “But show me a female character whose major characteristics are competence with violence, willingness to defy authority, and the occasional ability to make entertaining banter, and I’ll show you a character who—I am willing to guarantee you—has been dismissed […]keep looking »
