honestly, ewing's immortal hulk strikes me as the most explicitly political book in mainstream comics; it just doesn't go TRUMP TRUMP FACEBOOK TRUMP in the text

Was caught unaware of the new Forbidden Planet Glasgow. To start with I was dismayed by sheer quantity of merchandise and more of the bloody Funkopop but as I was leaving, I realized there is an upstairs (exclusive Frank Quitely art created for the stairway?) and there's more of everything and some new stuff the never had. More prose books than they've had in years (admittedly a lot of it looks like old stock), so I was quite impressed overall. Hope this goes well.

OTM, just fucking hideous.

Daniel_Rf, Wednesday, 19 February 2020 10:27 (ten months ago) link

The funkopops and other merch are, needless to say, what keeps Forbidden Planet Glasgow afloat. Certainly not comics or graphic novels. If and when the funkopops craze dies away, I imagine a number of comic shops will be in pretty dire straits financially.

It's nice to have more space to browse in Forbidden Planet Glasgow - the old Buchanan Street shop was a no-go zone on a Saturday, it got so crowded - but their new back issue section is rubbish. Poor selection and high prices.

Ward Fowler, Wednesday, 19 February 2020 10:35 (ten months ago) link

tbf I avoid the Forbbiden Planet in London because it mostly feels like a shop for geek culture merchandise, stick to Orbital and Gosh which seem to be keeping afloat (knock on wood)

Daniel_Rf, Wednesday, 19 February 2020 10:38 (ten months ago) link

I suspect they do keep some shops afloat, but if that is what it takes, let the industry die.

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Wednesday, 19 February 2020 11:06 (ten months ago) link

Comic shops have had to rely on this kind of merchandise to stay float for decades, whether it's collectible card games or beautifully detailed busts of questionable taste. I'm fine with it. GameStop/ThinkGeek occupies a lot of that market, and modern chains like Newbury Comics and FP make it something like 95% of the store.
(Though I do kind of want to let the industry die to kill its ridiculous ordering system.)

Last year, the main comic book mart in London gave over a large part of its floorspace to funko pop dealers - they drew an almost completely different crowd from the usual smelly old comic book fans - much younger, many more female fans. So I think there is the possibility of using these (basically harmless if useless) model toys to broaden and grow the comics audience a little bit; not sure most comic book stores would know how to go about this tho.

Ward Fowler, Thursday, 20 February 2020 10:49 (ten months ago) link

I mean, Captain Britain is already a thing in Marvel, and the team will also feature, er, Union Jack.

Debuting in a five-part series spinning out of the forthcoming Empyre storyline, The Union teams Union Jack — a hero who first appeared in 1976’s The Invaders No. 21 — with four all-new characters, each one representing different countries in the U.K.: Snakes from Northern Ireland, Kelpie from Scotland, The Choir from Wales and team leader Britannia.

So yeah I'm going with Britannia as the least worrying of these, particularly if she's darker without the light source that appears to be coming from her cleavage.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 20 February 2020 11:03 (ten months ago) link

hmm, maybe it deserves more benefit of the doubt then, but either way someone at marvel marketing needs a starter guide to uk politics xp

I'd argue investing more in manga produces the same result. Customers in Gosh and Orbital (and the Gosh reading group!) pretty young and diverse.

Not that I begrudge comic stores stocking some of those funkos.

I hope the funkopop owners and their inheritors believe in recycling instead of binning when the time comes to decide.
One of the greatest comic shop successes had to be one with the least craft.

Are all big manga successes ones with anime versions? Are some fans reluctant to read unless there is a version to watch?

Robert Adam Gilmour, Saturday, 22 February 2020 17:10 (ten months ago) link

For all the stereotype of geek culture being for loners I think there might even be too much emphasis on community and sharing because nobody seems to want to try anything unless there is versions in different mediums, merchandise and a busy fanbase ready to talk to you. Surely all the crap like funkopop is just to show other people your bedroom and all the stuff you like?

Just imagine book and music stores being half merchandise. Funkopop of bands and writers you cant even find in the store anymore.

I’m not sure what it’s like in 2020, but five years ago the physical store chain that sold the most vinyl records in the US was Urban Outfitters, which is a clothing/miscellaneous junk chain. Most records sold overall was Amazon.

Andrew Farrell, Friday, 2 October 2020 08:58 (three months ago) link

send everyone one of those setups where you plug an external keyboard and an external monitor (with a rotate function) into a laptop, with all the requisite cables, and a monitor stand thingy that sits over the laptop and behind the external keyboard, then, I guess? it's still an inconvenient way to read a comic whether you're shipping one box or four boxes of computer equipment to dozens of people around the planet in order for them to be able to read a whole panel at a time tbh!

I was being kind of tongue in cheek, but the comic looked good on my phone and tablet. looks fine on my laptop if I change the scaling and they probably should set the scaling for computers so it fits better if they run a lot of comics!

to take ulysses' point and paraphrase

They tell me about families they're trying to start and real estate that they're trying to buy, and I tell them about comics on The Nib and what devices they display in while maintaining panel integrity -- one per screen. I'm posting about it on message boards. The exchanges left me feeling that the chickens I had set free when I was 23 were coming home to roost. I could have chosen to do anything I wanted, and this is what I chose to do.

loved the comic, especially the twists and turns and expressions as the narrator's stand-in reacts to the even-keeled scientific explorers as they explain their methodology and reject woo-woo claims and show more interest in big cats than the more esoteric examples. going out to listen to what you hope is weird stuff and finding a group of very methodical and, relatively boring, investigators. special guest appearance by Steve Bissette!

Loving the Tardi/Manchette collection, hard boiled Paris noir with a background hum of radical politics.

Also read Tom King's Mister Miracle, kinda dumb Vertigo fan fiction? Felt like a very surface level grappling with philosophy, and the winks to Kirby pretty cheap. But I'll admit I'm biased against ex-CIA agents.

Forgive some film talk for the subject matter
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7MpVdZ9SXU

Tokiwa: The Manga Apartment - This lovingly wallows in sentimental nostalgia for 50s japan and the manga artists of the time who either worked in this apartment or passed through it. Period music, shots focused perhaps more on the settings than the characters, manga authors huddled together discussing their successes, insecurities, failures and the audience and business, and they sumo wrestle in their garden in one scene.

I had heard this was mostly a biopic of Hiroo Terada (he did baseball manga) but it's actually more spread out than that. Terada is quite happy being a slightly old fashioned storyteller for kids, Shotaro Ishinomori (Kamen Rider, Super Sentai) despairs and hasn't yet found his thing yet (his sister is a prominent character), Hideko Mizuno seems to have been the only woman there but didn't stay long term, Tezuka leaves the place quite early and quickly becomes an important figure, babies cry in the presence of Tsuge, Suzuki leaves for animation, Fujimoto's mother asks why everyone wears berets.

Re: Corben's death in the obituary thread. I think his last appearance in Heavy Metal should have been on the shelves by now, thankfully he got that finished. I gave up on the serialization and am waiting for the collected edition.
Dimwood was to be his next thing, his facebook says that he was working on the last page a while ago.
https://muuta.net/wp/dimwood/

He always experimented with animation and put them online occasionally (but nothing ever stays up for long on his official site) there's a video here of some recent works
https://www.facebook.com/Corben-Studios-Inc-193240777737358/

I heard several years ago that Fantagraphics offered to print his underground era work but Corben already had plans for that stuff.

I would have loved to read Martin Skidmore on Corben :/

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Friday, 11 December 2020 11:47 (one month ago) link

My favorites by him are probably the second Den book (really shows off his skills and it's the most disturbing thing he ever did, probably), his House On The Borderland adaptation, some of the Warren comics (most of which is in Creepy Present Richard Corben), and the graphic novel length House Of Usher. I've heard Bloodstar is very good but I think I never got that because there are two versions and maybe it was too expensive. There's a ton of stuff that hasn't been printed in decades and his family is intent on keeping his works out there, so fingers crossed, I would buy a bunch of this stuff a second time but there's lots of odds and ends I never got, thankfully a great deal of his work was creator owned.

Just discovered this artist, really amazing but none of her comics in english yet

Claire Wendling has been around much longer, I think Lights Of The Amalou is her only graphic novel in english but there's lots of sketchbooks and some covers for Marvel and DC. I think her most recent drawings look like her best, some of it quite NSFW. I discovered her from youtube interviews but I probably seen her american comic covers when they came out.

I think he never stopped doing life drawing but when he got cartoonier it was this odd combination of long and short features.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Friday, 11 December 2020 22:42 (one month ago) link

yeah, the late era marvel and dc cartoony stuff could get mannered and sloppy.
no disrespect though! he was formative for me!

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Friday, 11 December 2020 22:51 (one month ago) link

By cartoonist/illustrator standards, I don't think that was ever a real problem for him. It annoys and worries me how easily so many amazingly skilled drawers fall into cliche mannerisms, "overacting" and sameyness and I think he avoided that to a remarkable degree for someone who spent their life doing comics and illustration.

To focus on problem areas, I think he often struggled with smooth textures against rougher textures, he once said he makes his characters balder and shaved because "hair destroys form", I guess it's similar to when a lot of sculptors don't even bother trying eyelashes.

Although his writing and the writers he worked with were mostly very readable, I do wish he had some standout scripts because (unless my few unread Corben books surpass expectations) I wouldn't say he has any real must read books, but he had the skills to make one (true for so many great comic artists who never lucked out with a script).

Robert Adam Gilmour, Saturday, 12 December 2020 00:16 (one month ago) link

if you're looking for "problem areas" I would point to the guy's consistent default body types: 0% body fat mega-schlonged double-jointed men and impossibly cantilevered gargantu-breasted and buttocked women, all sculpted from the same stippled putty. I loved him, I remember Fantagor being one of the first comics I ever saw, but he was undeniably working in a specifically pulpy milieu that came with certain limitations. But I hear you.

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 12 December 2020 01:55 (one month ago) link

Everyone could use more body types but the women were one of the main draws for me and there actually was quite a bit of variety: the super muscled women, skeletal woman in Den, quite a lot of bald and balding women, lots of different faces but he seldom drew people with fine delicate facial features.
