catching up with this episode
some responses to stuff discussed (it might have been touched upon here earlier)
* alan moore
i find interviews with him very interesting and i agree he seems much more approachable now that in the 80s
these podcasts are all carried by a documented interviewer for British network and are not fanboyish at all
the magic of alan moore (over 1&half in 3 parts)
this one is lengthy, colloquial and amazingly inspiring in terms of understanding his definition of magic and so on.http://www.resonancearchive1.org.uk/audio/ReadyForMyCloseup/imready_alanmoore1.mp3http://www.resonancearchive1.org.uk/audio/ReadyForMyCloseup/imready_alanmoore2.mp3http://www.resonancearchive1.org.uk/audio/ReadyForMyCloseup/imready_alanmoore3.mp3
very good one!
about from hellhttp://panelborders.wordpress.com/2008/10/23/todays-show-from-hell-and-psycho-geography/
about lost girls
(in 2 parts)http://panelborders.wordpress.com/2008/02/24/video-podcast-looking-for-lost-girls/
here are collected many of the same interviews with moore, as well as other with his collaborators over time
like watchmen's dave gibbons
, league's kevin o'neil
and v's david lloyd http://panelborders.wordpress.com/2009/03/08/alan-moore-and-dave-gibbons-on-panel-borders/
of course there's the midscape of alan moore
documentary available on fragments on youtube
still extremely interesting but it comes across as a little more pretentious with the music and the montages
i found from minute 4:20 of this segment simply heartbreaking, somewhat like the 2nd half of wall-e ...
give it a try!
*TORPEDO is a spanish comic book not italian. sorry to correct you guys...
also both bernet and abuli are spanish authors...
it ran from 83 to 99 and that was that.
i mean no harm but here's a pic of the french edition
680 pages for 35 euros... fully b&w as it should!
i guess it's going to get a little pricy divided into 160 page volumes... but what you gonna do.
i cant read french either but, this i didn't buy for the reading... i bought it for the learning! (it is a school book for me!)
you just cant draw much better than bernet does here so... gotta pay up!
in my opinion, bernet's work is to be seen in b&w
particularly this heavily noir tales
jonah hex does look fine in color but, it looks like the work of art of a master on b&w
