Posts Tagged ‘Neil Gaiman’

I thought I’d let anyone who reads or accidently stumbles upon my blog that I’ve started a new one on Tumblr.

robotchallenger.com

The title of today’s post is in honor of Neil Gaiman’s new two parter Batman story Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader. It’s awesome and you should all check it out. Don’t worry if you didn’t understand all the recent Grant Morrison stuff. This has nothing to do with that.

Be sure to check out my new site for all the same funny stories, videos, and general rambling that I’ve done here. I update it every day (just like here).

Thanks to blogger for getting me started. In the future I may post here on occasion, but in general everyday stuff will be on the new site.

Thanks for visiting!

I finally pulled the Graveyard Book out of the smoldering remains of my backpack. It’ll have to wait on my “to read” list until I finish my newest book club selections. October’s selections include:

In the Fantasy category:
Acacia by David Anthony Durham

In the Sci-Fi category:

The Traveler by John Twelve Hawks

Interesting facts about the author:

Both John Twelve Hawks and his American publisher state that he has never met his editor and that he communicates using the Internet and an untraceable satellite phone, usually employing a voice scrambler. No photograph of Twelve Hawks has ever appeared and all biographical information about his background is based on four sources:

-a 2005 article in USA Today
-a 2005 interview by Rob Bedford in SFF World
-a 2006 interview published in Germany in Der Spiegel
-a portion of a 2007 Daily Telegraph article about popular writers

Twelve Hawks’ initial biography on the Random House website was only one line: “John Twelve Hawks lives off the grid.” At some point in 2007, that line disappeared and was replaced with “John Twelve Hawks is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Traveler.

Neil Gaiman just released that he is currently writing a two-part Batman story called “What Ever Happened to the Caped Crusader?” which artist Andy Kubert (1602), will be drawing. Gaiman was very cryptic but did let out that the two issues would both be over-sized. Part one is set for a January 2009 release. What do you all think of this? Obviously Neil Gaiman swings for the fences every time and is something of a genre storytelling home-run king. I can’t say enough good things about him, and I can’t believe I didn’t see him in San Diego this year. I guess we’ll all just have to wait to hear more till he’s finished writing the story.

As our buddies (Now Eisner-Winning Buddies!) at Newsarama pointed out, the title is a reference to Alan Moore’s Superman issue titled “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?” In which Moore closed the book on the Silver Age Superman and got the character ready for a re-boot by then-upcoming Superman writer John Byrne. Does this mean Superman is in a state of metamorphosis. Obviously the answer is yes, but

What kind of Batman do you think Neil Gaiman will create? Surreal like his Morpheus character (from the Sandman series), or maybe something grounded more in reality (not likely)? Write in and let us know by commenting below or emailing us at tips@pulpsecret.com.

I just found my Neil Gaiman Episode of The Stack on his website today. Not too shabby for my very first project as editor/producer. Special Thanks go out to Scott M. for helping fix the aspect ratio during post and to Neil Gaiman for giving his wink and nod to my first (of many) projects. Thanks everybody.

Here’s a link to the episode on Neil’s Blog.

If you didn’t see it on my blog a few days ago, here it is again!

Everybody who worked on this episode congratulate themselves, that’s pretty cool!

If you can tell by now, I’m including titles in my blog posts. That’s in addition to the date. I figure all my other blog posts elsewheres are the same. I might as well get with the times. I just posted my first total solo episode (editing and producing) of The Stack. Although I didn’t film or direct it, I was marginally happy with the way it turned out. The cameras being used to film weren’t really up to our specs, so I had to do a lot of fix-it work in post production to get the video ready for distribution. Right now I’m working on our Hellboy 2 interview. It will go live on Tuesday the 27th, so check it out on our website or here on my blog!

Justin sits down with Neil Gaiman at NYCC to talk about his new Neverwhere and Coraline films due out soon. Then Neil talks about what Sandman means to him today and what comic book projects he’s currently working on. Don’t miss this special New York Comic Con edition of The Stack!

Be sure to catch The Stack three times a week at Pulpsecret.com, and send your comments and questions to tips@pulpsecret.com!

No pretty ladies in bikinis today, but Neil Gaiman did post something interesting on his blog. It’s a series of videos that Sara Benincasa did for the CBLDF (Comic Book Legal Defense Fund). In the videos Gaiman, as well as a few other celebrities (Frank Miller, Jeff Swanson, and Bill Hader) each speak about why they support the CBLDF. Here are the videos:

Obviously everyone feels very strongly about free speech, and rightly so. I had no idea that that type of human right wasn’t available to citizens of the United Kingdom (or maybe just Great Britain?)
