Hi, Everybody!

As always on Sundays, click for bigger...

Oliver Simonsen:

Our film now has an imdb listing - we are somebody now!
Still working on getting all the credits and info on there

An animation company that is maybe kinda similar in spirit to ours was recently launched. I don't know too much about it yet admittedly, but seems very cool

And if that's not enough review here's from lifelong Cerebus fan Andrew Rilstone's ongoing Cerebus review.
From Andrew's latest instalment: "There is a kind of fan who demands story: who reads texts and watches movies only to know what happens next where artistry and form are irritants." "One kind is breathlessly waiting for the final Game of Thrones; the other re-reads To The Lighthouse every few years."

Speaking of Game of Thrones here's a couple of mashups

ComicScene Magazine (the only dedicated monthly magazine to comics and comic culture in the UK and Ireland) has a new issue coming out that focuses on 1977 the year that launched Cerebus, 2000AD and Star Wars.

Cerebus and Punpun. From the article:
Just like Cerebus himself, Punpun is a cartoonish creature that’s a bit on the abstract side but still very expressive. He’s always surrounded by gorgeous and realistically-drawn backgrounds, and by humans who actually look like humans.
In Understanding Comics, Scott McCloud talks about abstract and realistic characters, and why one might want to pay more attention to design: the more you simplify a character, the more the reader can identify with it. You can then enhance the capacity for projection in your comic book.

CBR article on X-men: Belasco's enforcer is a demon known as S'ym (the name is a play on Dave Sim, the writer/artist of Cerebus, who had been doing a longrunning Wolverine parody at time in the pages of Cerebus known as Wolveroach, so this was Claremont sort of playing with Sim). We then see S'ym break off one of Wolverine's adamantium claws with ease...
