Supertimes

New True Loves 3. I seem to have slipped back to one update a week. We’ll never get the story finished at this rate! Oh well. If I beat myself up about not drawing enough I will be miserable ALL THE TIME.

This week my copy of Grant Morrison’s Supergods book arrived. I am a big sucker for the Grant Morrison, so I am quite enjoying his history/examination of superheroes. And it has made me think about my superhero alter ego Mega-j and his changing from a university campus patrolling Ultra-j to Mega-j to endless Halloween costume variations to his current cosmic flameheaded look. I am not sure what I could do with this history, but it has been rolling around in my head all day.

Interviews I have enjoyed this week:
Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips. Still busy and doing all kinds of crazy projects at 50.
Miranda July. She has such a beautiful unusual way about her. I can’t wait to see her new movie “the Future” as I loved loved You Me and Everyone We Know.
Sara Gran. I really enjoyed her Clair Dewitt and the City of the Dead, so I was pleased to also enjoy this interview with her.
Neil Gaiman and Grant Morrison. I could happily read a 90 page Comics Journal style conversation between these two.

Here is a Mega-j from three and a half years ago. Read some adventures from what, seven years ago?
