In this scene from Spider-Man 2, is Tobey Maguire...happy? sad? angry? hurt? confused? constipated? completely and utterly devoid of the capacity to emote in a recognizably human fashion?
2) I'll probably be writing a more thorough discussion of Alan Moore's Mirror of Love sometime in the next week. But I do want to say now that, speaking as a gay man, it does sometimes feel as if the poem was written by a straight guy. Which isn't to say that it's bad. It's...a little more complex than that. I don't think it's one of Moore's stronger works, no. The piece falls apart a bit at the end, once it shifts over to "contemporary" politics, and doesn't really recover from the mis-step I think Moore makes.
3) I had planned to do my "Why I Hate Indy Comics Fans" piece last week, but real-life kept me busy, so I'm hoping to get to that in the next couple of days as well. I'll give you all a little teaser: just because you like to think you've outgrown super-hero comics, that doesn't make your attitude any less obnoxious and short-sighted.
4) And in what I hope will be my final teaser, I'm pursuing a line of thought regarding the relationship between Marvel Comics and comics retailers, tentavily titled: "I Walked Into A Door Again. Or, You Don't Know Him Like I Do."
