My Cycloptic Worm And I…

When your sex-ed teacher is named Ms. Lovecraft, you know yr in for some strange shit. Tentacle sex and mother-of-pearl streams, you know? An official selection at Sundance 2005, this short film by Craig MacNeill and Clay McLeod Chapman is the very sum of every pubescent child’s most antediluvian fears.

Superman is Real

This is an interesting little article. A collection of excerpts from various interviews where different comic book artists talk about real-life encounters with their characters. I’ve seen a few of these before, but they’re well worth reading again. One of my favourites comes from Alan Moore:

One day, I was in Westminster in London — this was after we had introduced the character — and I was sitting in a sandwich bar. All of a sudden, up the stairs came John Constantine. He was wearing the trenchcoat, a short cut — he looked — no, he didn’t even look exactly like Sting. He looked exactly like John Constantine. He looked at me, stared me straight in the eyes, smiled, nodded almost conspiratorially and then just walked off around the corner to the other part of the snack bar.

I sat there and thought, should I go around that corner and see if he is really there, or should I just eat my sandwich and leave? I opted for the latter; I thought it was the safest. I’m not making any claims to anything. I’m just saying that it happened.

Go through the whole thing, you’ll find it well worth the read.
