I watched this last night. Seemed like it has something helpful to say on the subject of that particular mix of envy and sadness you can sometimes feel when seeing work you consider better than your own...and I've been in that emotional state more than once across the decades.

Seems like a good time for it. You might have to move to Montréal, but I'd consider it a good trade-off.

Noticed that Star-Lord # 1 has gotten to the stores today, so I'm hoping this is a good week for you overall! Happier birthdays to you in future!

Good to see both you and Galaxion going strong!

Got to meet the man once in my life that I can remember. 2009, Montréal.

He did good work. Some of you will remember him as a friend, or at worst - I hope - a friendly competitor. Glad he was here.

I'll be at the Shanghai Restaurant for supper and a chat session with a bunch of cartoonists, designers, animators, etc. tonight. Said restaurant's a half-block east of the corner of Bronson and Somerset West, on the north side of Somerset West. It's their first jam session of 2016. Any time after 6 PM should be good for you to start showing up.

Yes, it's short notice. I apologize for that.

A conclusion I've reached after watching this week's episode...

Something I'd be glad to start seeing on The Flash?

In the credits: "Based on the series created by Gardner Fox, Harry Lampert and Carmine Infantino".

Could that happen at some point in 2016?

"If you have to always make characters younger because, 'well, young people won't connect with older protagonists,' well, that is such horseshit."

It's at the Jack Purcell Centre, just off of Elgin Street. Look for the Starbucks and Elgin Street Elementary School and turn west at that intersection.

It runs from 10 AM to 4 PM this time.

Apparently, http://salgoodsam will be there for a good chunk of the afternoon as well. So you might want a look at his table.

I'll be offering fresh copies of Local Hero # 1, the remains of my Ashcan Sampler stocks from previous years, and whatever sketches you're willing to commission!

Discussed in an essay in the Edmonton Journal by one Michael Hingston.

The closing quote from John Byrne is interesting in several ways, but I'm not sure that I agree with it right now.

You've all heard about the new Marvel movie based on the Guardians of the Galaxy comics, right?

One of the creators of one of the star characters is in need of ongoing help paying medical bills, and this is one of the ways you can help him out. There are other ways and I hope to pass the word about those as well. If you beat me to the punch by posting those links yourselves, I won't complain. At all.

Whether you're in comics or animation, this seems like a good idea.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] salgoodsam for uploading this video.

Apparently, a lot of pieces of Denys' original work disappeared in transit. Details here:

http://comicsbeat.com/denys-cowan-art-that-ups-lost-may-be-at-large/

Considering that Denys co-created or visually influenced a tonne of my favourite characters over the last couple of decades in particular - including the Milestone/Dakotaverse roster - I would be pleased indeed to see these pieces returned to whence they came. Intact.

Ditko's Day

It pleases me to be reminded that this weekend marks Steve Ditko's birthday.

For Peter Parker, Stephen Strange, Vic Sage and others...even if you neither need nor want my thanks, sir...I offer them anyway.

Wishing you well.

As suspected, part of a larger pattern:

http://comicsbeat.com/lets-get-this-straight-dc-is-anti-marriage-not-anti-gay-marriage/

Since there's this ongoing "concern" about characters looking too old, a lot of longstanding marriages of other characters got retconned away by the Flashpoint mini-series back in 2011.

This looks to be just part of a continuing pattern. If it's not ageism on their part in itself, it's fear of the ageism lurking in the hearts of their readership (and in the case of TV and cinema spinoff projects, viewership as well).

There's a lot of reasons why I picked up Astro City...and I'm thinking this is one of them.
