Jeez, looks like this is probably going to be a lot more work than I thought it was. In any case, I think if we're going to be friends, you need to understand something about me: I have an affinity for pastiche that I can't really explain. That's why I love Alan Moore's Supreme (or part of why, at least), and why I have so much affection for Big Bang Comics. 

Again, I have no idea why this could be, though I think it's kind of weird for me to care about why I enjoy something. The closest I can come up with is like this: There are tons of great Superman stories that will never be told with Superman, but could be told with Ultiman, or Supreme, or the Samaritan, or Hyperion.


  1. Interesting. I've always felt like I should LIKE pastiche, then never quite connect with it. I've tried a Retro-Comics feature on the SBG, and well, did I even manage two posts? Just couldn't motivate myself to track down those Big Bang comics (for example).

    A case of liking something better on paper than in actual execution (which I realize is also on paper, this being comics).

    1. That was almost longer than the post itself, ha.

      I'm probably going to do a larger series on Big Bang (and maybe Supreme); it's cool to hear that I'm into something outside even your scope, no offense.

  2. Oh I think I have plenty of blind spots :)
