It’s that time again, where I tell you what’s really grinding my gears for the week of November 21st, 2018.
Some weeks it’s mostly likes, other weeks it’s dislikes.
So what’s grinding my gears this week?
None of us can escape or cheat death but one can live forever with the memories created. I might not have agreed on all Stan Lee’s past business practices but I can surely appreciate and pay tribute to what you brought forth in comics and the beloved heroes you helped create we all strive to be within ourselves.
Rest in Peace Stan. You lived the type of life most of us could only dream of living!
And ignore that Bill Maher guy, he’s just being an ass!
I am so welcoming Black Hammer to our screens. This is definitely a book I would love to see make it beyond just the studio option.
Jeff Lemire captures the realistic side of super heroes in Black Hammer. Character driven with the emotional side involved, it’s more than just the action pack punching and kicking ass type of hero story. Don’t get me wrong, I love heroes being heroes but I really enjoy this take on the whole superhero mythos.
For me, it’s unique, original and Lemire is just a great writer who happens to be an artist as well. Even his art has it’s own unique style and you can certainly point out his art from all the others like one can point out a Picasso in an art museum.
If you haven’t read or not reading Black Hammer, now is a better time than any. If you’re holding onto some early issues, could be a good time to flip them as well.
Lemire has other books that have gone the option route and still nothing produced as of yet. A few other Jeff Lemire books I would love to see adapted as films or TV shows would be Trillium and Plutona. Plutona was already optioned but there doesn’t seem to have much movement since.
Once Our Land
I’ve been waiting for this one as well. Loved the series, love the kickstarts. Can’t wait to see this make it to our screens. Once Our Land landed an option but I think it’s already beyond just the option from the impression I got.
I know there’s a few out there who are not happy with the creator in how he handled the onslaught of demand for his kickstart hardcover edition while trying to do it all himself but from my interactions with him over email, he really seems like a nice guy who enjoys his work.
