There won’t be much about comics for a week or two, and I’ve still got a lot of work ahead of me–adding links/written material to the various course-material posts…but the foundations have been laid!
Meanwhile, I want to know–why on earth did Martin Scorsese go on making a film about Howard Hughes when he could have been making a film about Katharine Hepburn? And anyway–doesn’t Milos Forman handle all of the “crazy asshole bucks the system and accomplishes nothing but his own self-aggrandizement” biopics?
(Perhaps Milos ought to get to work on securing the rights to Dave Sim’s life right now, before Scorsese steals that one too! Frankly, Cerebus is a lot more impressive than the “Spruce Goose”–and I predict that it will eventually come to be regarded as one of the great works of the twentieth century…despite, or perhaps because of, its author’s insanity!)
Good Night Friends!
