CS Soapbox: V For Vendetta’s 15th Anniversary Comes at an Eerie Time

(credit: Nathan Mattise) Warning: Though we'll take great pains not to spoil anything important from DC's ongoing Rorschach comic, some of the story's events will be lightly referenced, given this is a review of sorts.

Wrestling With the Complex Legacy of ‘Game of Thrones’ on Its 10th Anniversary

Attempting to define legacy – whether of an individual, an institution, or a piece of art – can be a fraught proposition. By our very nature, human beings generally tend to crave oversimplified narratives to help make sense of a messy and chaotic world. After all, depending on who you ask, George Lucas will either go down as the godfather of all our nerdy obsessions or the monster who trampled on our collective childhoods, superhero blockbusters ought to be considered as either the modern he...

V for Vendetta Might Be Even Better 15 Years Later

There’s a point about halfway through V for Vendetta when a character is looking at headlines and sees one that reads: “80,000 Dead.” The thought that some singular event could have killed so many people is meant to shock both him and the audience. In 2006, when V for Vendetta was released, it probably did. But in…Read more...

Who were the most legendary ancient rulers of all time?

We often dismiss ancient history and the people in it as too long past to be noteworthy. Some early rulers were so iconic that their names and works passed into legend and influenced others for centuries. Every person on this list contributed to the world you live in today. A lot of people can be rather dismissive of ancient history, even using the term to refer to past events so remote as to be irrelevant. Nothing could be further from the truth, as the events and decisions made in antiquity ...

Alan Moore's surprisingly positive thoughts on Frank Miller, from 1983

Alan Moore and Frank Miller are perhaps two of the best known comic book creators—or at least, two with the most notable personalities. They've both had their properties—creator-owned, and otherwise—adapted into hit movies (for better, and for worse). And they've both been known for expressing, erm, shall we say, unpleasantries and other controversial opinions. — Read the rest

Eddie Campbell on Colorizing From Hell

It’s no secret I’m a sucker for an audio commentary. So here’s something along those lines, and it involves my favorite graphic novel of all time: From Hell. Artist Eddie Campbell set about colorizing the book and in this video he talks about the two year process, things he didn’t like about his work on the original black and white version, and how hats can throw off your whole game. The new color version is available from Amazon.

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending

Watchmen Screenwriter Reveals Plans for an Alternate Ending Whatever you have to say about Zack Snyder’s filmmaking style, his Watchmen movie is about as faithful an adaptation that fans of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel could have hoped for. The only major deviation from the source material was the omission of the giant squid, which Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias transported to New York in order to bring about global peace. Snyder’s film instead framed Doctor Manhattan for a series of e...

‘Watchmen’ Season 2: Damon Lindelof Still Wants Someone Else to Take Over

Watchmen, last year’s HBO series overseen by Lost and The Leftovers showrunner Damon Lindelof, was a miraculous piece of storytelling that pushed the envelope in terms of what a sequel to a beloved property could be. It also happened to be remarkably prescient in terms of topics like race and police brutality, which are obviously very much at the center of the national conversation several months after the series wrapped up. But Lindelof has said multiple times that he has not yet had an idea f...
