Brian Bolland: su magia oscura

Brian Bolland: su magia oscura

De la vanguardia al mainstreamEspecial para 9panelesUn dibujante contemporáneo para un arte de masasEl gran público lo conoce por la asociación indeleble con Alan Moore en La broma asesina (The Killing Joke,1988), obra reconocida con el Eisner para ambos artistas y cuya repercusión persiste en el siglo XXI: el tratamiento “Adulto”, inédito en la fecha de publicación del cómic, de la relación entre Guasón y Batman, basada en una espiral de rechazo y atracción mutua, permanece como una de las puertas de entrada al mundo gotamita.Batman & Guasón, arte de Brian Bolland, DC ComicsSin embargo, a sus 72 años y en plena majestad creativa, Brian Bolland es un artista cuya técnica supuso un necesario cambio de guardia en la industria norteamericana, acostumbrada a esquemas artísticos con 10 o más años de antigüedad.Técnica oscura y ruinosa para ojos candorososCon el fotorrealismo como su aporte central al dibujo, brindó un aire de actualidad a sus composiciones (visto a la distancia aparenta suciedad, lo que es otro logro de su arte) que oscilan entre el interior de los fascículos y su expédito portadismo, cuyo ritmo y volumen compite con Alex Ross.Junto a Dave Gibbons, de quien aprendió la regularidad del oficio en contraposición a...

Create Your Own Comics With Kaare

Create Your Own Comics With Kaare

As was announced in our interview last week, Kaare Andrews is teaching fans to write/draw/create their very own comics from home!YouTube | Kaare AndrewsWhen I was a kid, I used to love watching art shows. Every day, I’d tune-in to watch ‘Art Attack’ come alive or see Bob Ross paint his latest masterpiece. I can’t quite describe it, but something about watching Bob paint absolutely mesmerized me as a child. In fact, I still throw on the odd episode every now and again. It’s incredibly therapeutic, especially during these times of self-isolation.Anyway, the great thing about Bob Ross was that he encouraged you to paint along with him! He would give you instruction and insight into his creative approach; lifting the veil to reveal his “happy little world” as he called it. The bad thing, especially for someone like myself who has trouble drawing stick figures, is that trying to ‘paint with Bob Ross’ is a lot like playing pickup basketball against Michael Jordan. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if you have all the ‘pointers’ on planet earth — you’re still going to get schooled.I learned early on in life that I would never be a great...

Volevo essere un Supereroe della Marvel vol. 1 — Matsuteia — E.T.A. Egeskov

Volevo essere un Supereroe della Marvel vol. 1 — Matsuteia — E.T.A. Egeskov

Volevo essere un Supereroe della Marvel vol. 1MatsuteiaE.T.A. Egeskovhttps://www.amazon.it/dp/B0865BNNV5ebook euro 0,99ebook euro 0,99ebook euro 0,99Ottomila circa sono i personaggi che affollano l’universo (o meglio gli universi) della Marvel Comics e l’idea di realizzare un volume agile sulle curiosità di una siffatta pletora di personaggi non poteva che spaventare e far sembrare l’idea folle e il progetto irrealizzabile. Ma arrendersi non è da supereroi…(dalla prefazione di E.T.A. Egeskov)Dopo l’apprezzato “Volevo essere uno Jedi”, che accompagnava i lettori dietro le quinte della saga di Star Wars e il successo di “Volevo guidare l’Enterprise ma Kirk è arrivato prima”, che ci conduceva invece nel fantascientifico universo di Star Trek, dalla serie culto degli anni Sessanta del Novecento, fino ai più moderni film (scritto a quattro mani con Adele Ross), Matsuteia torna con un’altra raccolta di curiosità frizzanti e insolite, questa volta sull’universo (anzi gli universi) della Marvel, altra icona per gli appassionati (sia dei classici comics che delle pellicole da loro tratte e che spesso hanno sbancato i botteghini di tutto il mondo). Scritto insieme a E.T.A. Egeskov (autore di “Ho fatto 13: consigli di lettura un po’ originali” e la favola dark “Notte di tempesta sulle falesie”), questo agevole volumetto, primo di una...

Il Sidekick Problematico

Il Sidekick Problematico

Jason Todd, la sua fine prematura e l’importanza di dare giusta visibilità ai caratteri turbolenti.A Death in the Family — Jim AparoDi supereroi al mondo ce ne sono tanti — anche troppi secondo alcuni. Forti, potenti, accessoriati e con storie tragiche alle spalle, ognuno una primadonna nel suo universo. Va bene così. Li amiamo o amiamo odiarli, ma non è il punto di questo discorso.Di supereroi, dicevo, ce ne sono tanti. Abituati come siamo a renderli protagonisti, spesso distogliamo l’attenzione da quella che è una figura altrettanto importante nella vita di quella fetta di pubblico che non riesce a identificarsi nell’infallibilità dell’eroe: i sidekick.La ratio eroe/sidekick non depone a favore di questi ultimi, ma quando ci sono, quando esistono e gli è dato spazio d’evolversi, rappresentano un ponte la cui importanza è da sottolineare.Nati in principio con lo scopo di coinvolgere con più entusiasmo una certa fascia demografica e spargere valori sani, patriottici, galvanizzanti, col passare del tempo figure come Bucky Barnes e Dick Grayson hanno sviluppato vite proprie, trovando la forza e il momentum necessari per allontanarsi pian piano dall’ombra dei loro compagni d’avventura più ingombranti. Sono, in tanti modi diversi, cresciuti, e questo rende la loro essenza ed esistenza...

My Obsession with One-Pot Meals: An illustrated exploration

My Obsession with One-Pot Meals: An illustrated exploration

Hey, everyone. Remember this guy?Yeah. It’s the Hamburger Helper guy. No one knows why he’s just three fingers and a thumb, and no one wants to think what will happen if this guy actually touches a hot pan — but he was my introduction to one-pot meals.I was 20, living in Queens, New York with my friend Sarah, and she was from Rochester. I don’t think I’d ever eaten Hamburger Helper before I saw her eating it one night. At the time, I was making $18,000 a year, and I was stunned at how rich and savory cheap ground beef and a meal out of a box could taste.I think this is largely because, when I was growing up, my mom made traditional Taiwanese meals. At a minimum, there was one protein, one veg, and rice, of course. Most nights there was two veg. Every night for dinner our meals looked like something I’d now recognize as coming straight off a restaurant menu.My mom never seemed to really enjoy making these meals, and I don’t blame her now.We moved back to California to be closer to my parents about seven years ago, and I remember being horrified and shocked when my dad showed...

A Green Theme for Spring

A Green Theme for Spring

Wanting and Having, Part 01Like many freelance creatives, I found myself closing out a contract with a company in mid-March, at the start of the COVID-19 quarantine in New York City. I count myself grateful to have a skillset that allows me to generate income remotely from my home and even more grateful to the doctors, nurses, pharmacists, grocers, baristas, journalists, government officials, and men and women in delivery and sanitation that continue to work out of their homes.I intended to pass the time creatively before my next contract and since I don’t do Sudoku (I don’t like numbers), puzzles (puzzles are at best marginally fun in the company of other people, and I live alone), or The New York Times crossword (there’s no excuse for this, really, I should be doing this for my brain), I found myself wandering aimlessly online opening up tab after tab of things I wanted to buy online. There were so many, the tabs began to look like a little row of sugar ants searching for a PopTart crumb on my homebar. I used to have a coworker who did this and whenever she would pull me over to look at her screen for advice...
