Why, I do believe it's time for obscure Curt Swan comics!
But enough about me, what've you got planned for the weekend?
Sorry for missing the last few days - I had a lot of stuff to do irl yesterday and the day before.
Yes, I like cover stories, but I don't LIKE-like them...
He really is the best indicator of whatever direction DC was going in; 40's-50's, he's rounding up rustlers and making peace with the Injuns; 60's, he's fighting Injun robots and giant gorillas; 70's, his son is embroiled in socially relevant dilemmas with escaped slaves and suchlike. Shame he's been sidelined by Jonah Hex and Batlash, but what can you do?
How would you make Tomahawk interesting? I'd be tempted to make the goofy Silver Age nonsense canon, but make him completely unflappable in the face of Gator Gods and Tree-Men.
... Dashiell Hammett died 55 years ago on the 10th of this month...
This will take a while, so feel free to go to the bathroom.
Torrent sites are your best bet - I generally use Kick Ass Torrents, but that's just me. Dick Tracy scans are thin on the ground, but you could always try the issues of Dell's Four Color Comics that Gould's work was reprinted in.
Incidentally, you could do worse than to check out the Secret Agent X-9 radio play the BBC made a few years ago.
... and David Bowie died on that same day this year.
Again, if you want to make a bathroom break, go right ahead.
... Michae Bond, who created Paddington Bear, was 90...
... Cabu would've been 78...
... Norman Panama, who scripted the Lil Abner movie, died 13 years ago on Wednesday...
I know... I just hate playing catch-up with the "who was born, who died" thing. I was planning on doing the entire Secret Agent X-9 book... then I realised that it was 170+ pages long, and it'd take me hours to finish the damn thing.
