    Fraction made me look at this yesterday. I was legally blind for an hour afterwards.

    If I thought the comic itself were going to be this aesthetically insane, I'd buy a subscription right now. I mean, look at it. Look at it for long enough and you start to hear a WUB WUB WUB binaural tone.

    But it's going to be a Kurt Busiek/Alex Ross comic, so you know it's going to be a good deal more comfy and sober than that.

    Still. Enjoy the day someone rubbed the edge of Alex Ross' water glass with magic mushrooms.

    I stared at that for a full five minutes. When I looked away, the room was still spinning, and all of my stuff, which had been previously floating about a foot off the ground, clattered back down.

    I think I need a drink. Or a hug.

    P.S.: What the HELL is that a poster for, anyway?

    @Alan Tyson - Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it's a promotional poster for a Jack Kirby project called GENESIS. I think I see Captain Victory (or someone who looks a lot like him) but my eyes are crossed.

    Ahhh. Kirby. That explains the lingering smell of cigar smoke. And ectoplasm.

    Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross will team for the first time since 1993's Marvels on Kirby Genesis, a project expanding on Jack Kirby's creations.

    "If you look up 'dream come true' in the dictionary, it's defined as 'working with Alex Ross on a big, epic project featuring dozens of Kirby characters,' In my dictionary, at least," Busiek said.

    "Jack Kirby was the premier creative force in American comics history. And to have the chance to work with his creations in their purest form -- some who've been seen before and some who haven't, from the Ninth Men to Galaxy Green to Tiger 21 to Silver Star -- and to build a new world and a grand story with them, is the kind of opportunity and challenge I couldn't possibly turn down. When we started talking about this, there was just so much stuff, so many great ideas, that I was confused as to where we could possibly start. But then Alex described one image -- a single moment -- and that was all it took to make me say, 'Got it. I see the whole story now. Man, this is going to be fun.'

    "And it is. Stand back. We're gonna need the room."

    "One thing that Kurt and I have always shared is our love for Jack Kirby's comics and legacy," Ross said. "The Kirby: Genesis project is a way to repay the impact this one man's creativity has had in shaping our lives. I'm excited to be plotting this adventure with Kurt as well as to be contributing to some of the interior art. This epic will be an ambitious assembly of every Kirby design we can lay our hands on."

    ... The rest of the world just turned grayscale.

    I swear Ross just invented some of those colors.

    this needs to come with a warning "can make parts of your brain bleed into other dimensions"...

    I´ve looked at it squarely for 10 minutes and there is just..... so much! Makes Juan Jose Ryp look like a minimalist....

    Interesting that Ross eschewed the use of Kirby dots.

    Finagle: I wouldn't say that. Check out the background. That's Kirby Krackle if I ever saw it.

    That’s the kind of image that reminds you of the extra color fidelity offered by RGB color spaces. Apple needs to get an 11x17 retina display to market SOON.

    My third eye blinked while I was looking at that.
