    You know, it's tacky, but it's a sense of humor.

    I'm just gonna leave this here and then put in some high-grade earplugs.

    Y'know, to protect myself from the squeeing.

    Yo, Val Lindsay! About a year ago, you posted a link to the video for Fiona Apple's "Not About Love" and I'd like to thank you for that. It was my gateway to the rest of her work, which up until then I ignored because "I already listen to Tori and who needs another girl-on-a-piano act?"

    I was a bit of a mouth-breather back in the 90's, you understand.


    On an unrelated, general-public note... a quaint Vimeo link that won't post here.

    And, um, here's this.

    @ dorkmuffin

    JH Williams is the only reason I might be giving the new Sandman story a try. Never been a huge fan of Gaiman's...

    Taking Before Watchmen into consideration, I'm finding it somewhat difficult not to view that Gaiman clip as the corporate version of an Al-Qaeda decapitation video.


    It could certainly just be that DC has improved the contract since they last attempted to get Gaiman to do a Sandman prequel, but all types of prequels of popular corporate, yet creator-driven projects makes me wary these days.

    It's not like he's not done other Sandman stories since the original series though, there was a particularly good collection not that long back.

    @Nigredo, I like JH Williams' general art style, but the cover he pulled together for the new Sandman stuff is honestly pretty amateur. There are some beautifully successful tiny moments in it, but as a whole I think it's pretty terrible. Especially the typography.

    I'm just holding out for the inside to be cool (or for Dave McKean to come back and be like, "DUDE. THAT'S your cover? Were you on drugs? And not good drugs, not the shit I'm on, I mean the kind that dampens your creativity and squashes your fine motor skills."

    Dreamhunters was pretty good (with some damn beautiful art IMO although Gaiman didn't have a hand in that obviously).

    If the story involves Alianora and the destruction of her world, it will be awesome.

    ...I dunno. Cage as Eddison could be exactly the right kind of awful.

    @RenThing

    Oh, what a missed opportunity. Cage should have been Tesla. He just quietly takes the mountain of abuse and neglect simmering until the third act, and then explodes in anger and retaliation!

    It would have been nice to see Bale as a full-blown villain, playing against type, oh well, Hollywood blows it again....
