Random Comic info
The Ten-Cent Plague by David Hajdu is getting some good buzz. It deals with the censorship of comic books in the McCarthy era and the creation of the Comics Code Authority that ruined many a good story, many a good genre and many a good creator. Despite the vileness of the topic, I find this period in the history of comics incredibly fascinating and I intend to pick up this book at some point.
I bought the Justice League: the New Frontier video, but grabbed the single disk version. So, I don’t have any of the bonus material. As it turns out that’s the real treat of this release as reviews have been mixed. I haven’t broken the seal yet so I may take it back for a 2-disk set. Apparently there is a pretty good doc on the history of the Justice League.
Some interesting responses to my Men are from Marvel, Women are from DC and DC’s Super Feminine Mystique posts:
Brainfreeze here part 2
New Pic from Watchmen.
After production wrapped a while back on the Watchmen movie a frame was released.
One more hint that this could be a really great film.
