I’m currently reading Jim Henson’s Designs and Doodles: A Muppet Sketchbook, and I also ran across a short bio of Hugh Hefner today online.
Both men initially wanted to be cartoonists.
I have no idea what that says about our profession, but it’s gotta be good.
Chole Sevigny will play editorial cartoonist Robert Graysmith’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) girlfriend in the upcoming thriller, Zodiac.
(Damn editorial cartoonists get all the cute ones.)
There’s a mildly interesting interview with Neal Adams here.
You know what stood out to me most about this article though? The way he refers to himself in the third person:
M: Youâ€™re not resting on your laurels, are you?
NA: Neal doesnâ€™t do that.
God I hate when people do that! The only thing worse is when they add “ster” to the end.
However, I did enjoy this:
M: Youâ€™re probably best known for your Batman work. Is that your favourite piece of your work?
NA: My favourite piece is Superman/Muhammad Ali. I think thatâ€™s probably the best comic book Iâ€™ve ever seen.
I wonder what he thinks of gay Batman?
OK, I have no idea if Sin City technically counts as true film noir, but I know I really dig this movie and am interested in checking out the genre.
I’ve gotten some books out of the library, but I’d be open to any suggestions you film buffs out there might have for a noir neophyte.
Where should I start?
