The Hackenblog

"It's morning in America, Hackenbush, and you work the nightshift."

Saturday, August 5, 2006

"I'm open to anything -- series, serialised graphic novels, single panels, self-contained shorts, newspaper-style strips -- in any style, from manga to clipart to whatever the hell you just invented in your basement. No limits.

"I'm open to any kind of content. You're going to have to work pretty hard to get me to accept a superhero project for the site, but if you've got something that knocks me flat, I'll take it. But, seriously, I want to eventually curate something that takes in a wide breadth of what comics can achieve. Surprise me. Give me something straight out of literary mainstream fiction, give me a warped genre, give me something I've never seen before. That's the "theme" of the site, the glue that holds it together. It is quite simply "stuff Warren really likes."

"The submissions process is open to everybody. I don't care if you only decided you wanted to try and make a comic ten minutes ago -- I'll look at it. I'll warn you in advance that the chances of my being able to provide detailed and constructive rejections are slight, but I'll do my best.

"(Also, if the site turns out to be all-male because only guys submitted, I'm going to be very pissed off, and will infect you all with this lung disease my girlfriend seems to have passed to me over the weekend.)"
Warren Ellis is curating a webcomic site

"What other class of criminals do we celebrate as much? I suppose bank robbers would have to be a close second. Car thieves have come in and out of vogue in recent years. However most crimes just don't to hold the same cultural mystique. It's hard to imagine a hundred years from now that teenagers will be discarding bottles of Carl Rove Gin out the back window of their rocket cars while on the way to see 'Parking Violators of Columbus Ohio.'"
Space Pirate Captain Herlock, Vol 1 review, by Kelly S. Taylor, J LHLS, August 4, 2006

You don't have to care about Captain Herlock to enjoy this review. So... Enjoy!

"'Sleep tight as you promote the next holocaust,' one woman wrote. Dreary, predictable, stupid stuff. Indeed, I told several of my detractors that they reminded me of Rev. Al Sharpton -- making patently bogus charges of bigotry in support of otherwise indefensible positions. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice prates about the 'birth pangs' of a new Middle East. FYI, she’s talking in code to Christian fundamentalists, alluding to the verse in Matthew in which Jesus tells the Apostles how to recognize the 'end times': 'Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom... All these are the beginning of birth pangs.' Here’s the rest of the scenario: Comes the Apocalypse, all the unconverted Jews get killed. And people think somebody like me is the problem? "
No Problem Here, by Gene Lyons, August 2, 2006

Oh, those birth pangs. Just when I thought it couldn't get more embarassing... or horrible, it does.

"So, I don't think Mel Gibson should be totally drummed out of the business. I think he should just have to start all over again. Put him in a movie as an 'under-five' (an actor who has fewer than five lines). Make him play BUSBOY #2 in a Matthew McConaughey comedy."
My Plan for Rehabilitating Mel Gibson, Al Franken, HuffPo, August 1, 2006

There's about 80 comments and they're all way too creepy.

(Oh, and just for the record, I like Al Franken, but I don't trust Arianna Huffington any farther than I could throw her. Nobody changes that much.)

"Il e'tait grilheure; les slictueux toves
"Gyraient sur l'alloinde et vriblaient:
"Tout flivoreux allaient les borogoves;
"Les verchons fourgus bourniflaient."
Jabberwocky, trans. Henri Parisot, linked to from Translations of Jabberwocky, Languagehat.com, February 10, 2003

Oh, and there's two verses in Klingon for the cognoscenti: "puqloDwI' ja'pu'vawq Dayep" More of this

News flash: Not enough comics companies commissioning stories from women! In other news, water persists in being wet!

"8). C - When Sean McKeever (the Eisner Award winning) got the assignment to do a Mary Jane book, Gail Simone joked that the first thing he did was look up the word ”girl” in the dictionary. When Carol first became Ms. Marvel, she was a feminist hero written by men. In 2006, the editor, writer and artist on the book are still all men. Do people ever give you a hard time about that?

"AS - No, not really. The fact is, I’d like to work with more women creators. But they’re difficult to find. And at the end of the day, I have to go with the writer I think is best, instead of the writer that politically makes the most sense. Folks can say all they want about how male-oriented super hero comics are, and they’re probably right. I’m all for more women breaking in, but I think I’ve only gotten three women in the last year even trying to break in. One artist named Alicia Rodriguez who’s quite good, a colorist, and one writer."
So, ladies, if you’re out there, and you want to write and draw comics—give us a call!, Andy Schmidt interview, July 31, 2006

Why doesn't Marvel give one of us a call? I'm sure Reggie Hudlin didn't pitch his run on "Black Panther" to them. It's no secret Marvel commissions work from established authors... if they're male.

And while I'm asking questions, why doesn't Marvel quit jerking us around?
