Joe Gordon over at Forbidden Planet International talking about Paul Gravett and his forthcoming Great British Comics.
Joe Gordon over at Forbidden Planet International mentioned that Paul Gravett has been talking about his forthcoming Great British Comics, which looks like essential reading (and about time someone gave the subject the coverage it deserves):
He went on to say that "... and yesterday the great Bryan Talbot kindly talked to me (can't wait to see his Alice In Sunderland project):
I also spotted this story via Newsarama about Pendragon Pics making some hullabaloo over Dark Horse's graphic novel version of War of the Worlds being similar to some of their movie shots - looks like either a lot of nonsense or alternatively an attempt to pick up some coverage to me: http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/?p=1294.
They have a site to compare comics panels with frames from the pic (links in the blog post), but since event like a green 'shooting star' occur in the book I'm not sure how the comic adaptation having it as well as the movie makes that plagiarism. Perhaps Jeff Wayne should clobber the lot of them!"
