Rarely does my editorial troll uncover material that I want to refer to here, but last night I found this:


Free! Online! Did I mention it’s FREEEEE!

It’s only a minute, but still.

One of my correspondents turned in this very interesting news: James Sturm, author of The Cereal Killings, a founder of the Onion’s sibling the Stranger out here in Seattle, and most recently the author of the fascinating baseball comic The Golem’s Mighty Swing, will be authoring a Marvel miniseries starring the Fantastic Four, to be titled Unstable Molecules.

Sturm’s work fascinates me for the same reasons that Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Klay does: both artists take elements of pop culture generally recognized as fantastic or in Chabon’s term, “Escapist”, and rework the themes from fantasy and wish fulfilment to expressions of personal and social growth and accomplishment.

Anyway, I think it’s innerestin’, cuz comic books is neat-o.
