The last decade Hollywood has gotten more serious about its relationship with Comic Books. I interviewed some Hollywood Script Folks and some Hollywood Comic Book Editors/Pundits to see how this relationship evolved.

Chick Lit

By Stacey Levin

As a new blogger to the site, I’d like to share my story of how I got hooked on reading comics.  Lots of women read them, some are starting to write and draw them, but the ladies still aren’t fully represented in the genre.  Hopefully I can be a tiny voice for the chicks.  Yo, where my ladies at?  Get your hands up!

Ok, so it’s not like I’d never read a comic book before in my life.  It had just been a while.  Fine, a really long while since I last read the odd issue of “Archie,” “Richie Rich,” “Star Wars” and “Wonder Woman.”  Those were a few titles I frequented when I was a kid.  But since then, not so much other than the occasional “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” book when I was at work.

So when I met Jason, fellow blogger, my boyfriend and writing partner, and he suggested I get back into reading them, I thought, why not?  I mean, how much could I have possibly missed?  Um, hello?  Was I living under a rock?  Apparently so.  A really big honking rock the size of Rhode Island.  Yeah, my bad.  Somehow I missed an entire generation of amazing literature.  I had a lot of work to do.

First he gave me some of his favorite titles to start with – “The Ultimates,” “Y- the Last Man,” “Spiderman,” “The Green Lantern,” and “The Umbrella Academy.”  He was worried it might be too much for me to start.  Pfft, whatev.  I got this.  They looked cool so let me at ‘em.  Wait, how many freakin’ issues do I need to catch up on??  And with that one little question, thus began my journey into finding my inner comic geek.

So, how does a typical “chick” who admittedly reads US and People weekly get indoctrinated into the comic book world?  By diving in head first, baby!  I started reading… and reading… and reading.  Before I realized it, I got so hooked on Y, I would lose sleep trying to finish issues before I went to bed.  And as fast as I would complete an issue or a title, Jason would be right there to replace it with another one.  It wasn’t   long before I began recognizing the names of writers and artists.  And as is typical for me, I started critiquing.  I liked the “soapy” stories like “Y” (yeah, yeah, I know, typical chick), the humor of “Spiderman,” the kick ass girls like “Batwoman” (I know, shocking) and the violent crime mysteries like “Greek Street” (ha, gotcha there, didn’t I?)  At that point, Jason told me I was ready.  Ready for what?  Did I pass some sort of test?  Yes, fellow comic bookers, I was graduating and it was time to go to the next level – time for my very first trip to… wait for it… Meltdown Comics!

The comics legend is signing

Batman and Robin and his new book, Final Crisis!

Los Angeles – June 17th, 2009 - It is time to break brains and separate souls!

It is time to weave wonder and leave mouths agape in the wake of impenetrable accents and extraordinary ideas!  It is time for YOU to return to MELTDOWN, because the Scottish swami Grant Morrison is returning to grace us with his presence and give us mere cave dwellers our first bouts of intellectual fire!

Are you going to allow the microphone to be dominated with the weeping milk-tears of egg-handed fools who will simply rehash old discussions of the Talmud of Mr. Tawky Tawny or shall we look towards a brighter day to come and inquire after new scripts, songs, fashions and fabulations?

If you consider yourself a worthwhile nerd, a good geek, a fascinating fan of freak fiction, then do us a favor and start formulating your questions now so that we can extract as much information about our favorite characters and series, old and new, and even if for a moment transcend our mortal coil to a dream world of comical capes and quizzical chimpanzees.

Come complete the circle and revel in the impossible.

CLIVE BARKER will hold a brief conversation with GRANT MORRISON before the signing.  Copies of Mr. Morrison’s latest literary luncheons, Final Crisis HC + Batman and Robin #1, will be on sale.  That same day is the release of Batman and Robin # 2. Buy one (or 3) of these 3 books and get into the event in the Meltdown Gallery.

Sadly, no outside items will be allowed due to time constrain on the talent.  But don’t despair!  Refreshments and music will also be provided.

WHO: GRANT MORRISON

WHY: Signing Batman and Robin and his latest Hard Cover Book, Final Crisis!

WHEN: WEDNESDAY, JULY 1st, 2009 – 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

WHERE: Meltdown Comics, 7522 SUNSET BLVD, L.A., CA, 90046

The Curious Case of the Scottish Swami

It is time to break brains and separate souls!
It is time to weave wonder and leave mouths agape in the wake of impenetrable accents and extraordinary ideas!
It is time for YOU to return to MELTDOWN, because from this vantage point I can see an odd fellow strolling down a golden path towards wisdom and he wants to share what he knows with you.

GRANT MORRISON IS COMING BACK TO MELTDOWN.

The last time the Bald Wonder made with the public chatstorm, international superstars wandered the aisles of El Melto unmolested and unrecognized, women were spontaneously fertilized with clones of Mozart and Einstein, and after the event was complete we found that all the pencil leads in the store had been turned to GOLD.

Tell me, friend: CAN YOU AFFORD TO MISS THE SECOND RIDE ON THE MYSTERY-GO-ROUND?
Answer: YOU CANNOT.

Are you going to allow the microphone to be dominated with the weeping milk-tears of egg-handed fools who will simply rehash old discussions of the Talmud of Mr. Tawky Tawny or shall we look towards a brighter day to come and inquire after new scripts, songs, fashions and fabulations?

If you consider yourself a worthwhile nerd, a good geek, a fascinating fan of freak fiction, then do us a favor and start formulating your questions now so that we can extract as much information from the googleplexity of Grant. Then, once the event is complete, we shall use what we have learned to trace a map of the world that is to come so that our enemies cannot surprise us and we shall remain victorious in our dream world of comical capes and quizzical chimpanzees.

I REPEAT IN STRIDENT VOICE: GRANT MORRISON IS COMING BACK TO MELTDOWN.

Come complete the circle and revel in the impossible. It is the way of our people.
CLIVE BARKER will hold a brief conversation with GRANT MORRISON before the signing.
