I Know some Scott Pilgrim/Bryan Lee O'Malley fans here, but he's doing a collaboration with Mondo to create a limited edition Battle Royale poster for Alamo screenings of the film. I Find it pretty awesome, especially in comparison to the film version of what Kitano drew.
That's awesome, I'm a huge fan of both (although I'm mostly a fan of the Battle Royale novel, the movie is alright). I'd love to have a print of that.
On what was actually cancelled, I actually kinda liked Sword of Sorcery, but DC has always been pretty terrible at trying to sell a genre (high science-fantasy) that they've never really done outside of Justice League Dark. That only sells because it has the Justice League tag on it.
Demon Knights kind of falls into the genre, although I've been kind of mixed on that series, there are parts of it I've enjoyed and parts that have just been kind of awkward. We'll see were it goes now that the plot is going in a new direction, although I'm not really sold on this new plot so far.
I was also enjoying Sword of Sorcery, like everyone else I'll agree that it wasn't a totally amazing book, but it was certainly enjoyable.
I'm almost to the end of Y: The Last Man which I've been reading through. I'm really enjoying it a ton so far and I'm really interested to see how it's going to end. Honestly I think the book kind of made it clearer to me why I adore Brian K. Vaughan's works so much, and it's that he knows how to write relatable and interesting characters, and he relies on those characters to really create the story rather than trying to craft a story which has characters in it. Which is actually the exact same reason my favorite literary author is John Steinbeck, I feel like Steinbeck totally understood how to create characters who could be totally felt and understood to the point where even seemingly mundane actions seemed important and interesting because of how close a relationship I felt to them as a reader.
