Comics Review: Saga and Captain Marvel

On September 20, 2012, in Art Nerd, Comic Books, Galen Dara, by Galen Dara

Admission: I’ve never bought weeklies at a comic store before. (Was always intimidated about plunging into the middle of a story line and getting lost in some crossover.)

On March 30, 2012, in Art Nerd, Book Review, Galen Dara, by Galen Dara

A few years ago, Matt Dukes Jordan compiled Wierdo Deluxe to showcase today’s leading lowbrow and pop surrealist artists.  With Weirdo Noir, he crawls into the cracks of the lowbrow genre to harvest some of the darker Gothic* works contained therein.

I love writers.  Writers are my friends.  Many of my writer friends are doing NaNoWriMo this month. (John Anealio wrote a lovely soundtrack for them). I was feeling a bit left out until I discovered that there are some nifty art/comic alternatives for us visually oriented folks.

I’ve been interested in DC’s recent response to criticism that their New 52 relaunch reduced their number of female creators from %12 to %1.   (Er… well, it’s complicated.)  As a woman who enjoys comics and has aspirations in the field myself, I feel I have a bit of skin (hehe) in the game.  So […]

Exquisite Corpse

On June 8, 2011, in Art Nerd, Galen Dara, by Galen Dara

“The Exquisite Corpse shall drink the new wine” ~Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau I tell people I am shy.
