btw, already one if not the favorite comic, kinda up there with The Watchmen, but better in its own way!
Damastech should read some more comics. Watchmen is good, and this comic doesn’t even compare (no offense to Scott and Benita). But due to his statements, I’m thinking that Damastech hasn’t read Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight Returns”, “Batman: Year One”, or other of Allan Moore’s works (some of which are arguably much better than the Watchmen), Transmetropolitan, Garth Ennis’ “Preacher” series, or many things written by Mark Waid, Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, Bendis, etcetera.
That all being said, while I’m a huge comic, so far this has been a fun little diversion for while I’m at work. Some of it’s a bit silly, but nothing has turned me off from it as of yet.
I’ll be the first to admit that “Johnny Saturn” is not at the level of such great’s as “Watchmen. I’d be crazy not to.
The writers who really inspired me in comics have been Frank Miller (Dark Knight Returns), Grant Morrison, Warren Ellis, Neal Gaiman, and Alan Moore. These folks are monumental in my estimation. Grant Morrison is my favorite, but Warren Ellis has had arguably more of an effect on me.
These guys are my creative heroes.
You’re alright, Scott. I appreciate how you’ve been personally responding to a lot of these comments. Warren Ellis IS amazing.
As for Grant Morrison, while I can see a lot of influence from him (particularly his series “The Authority”, which I’m sure you’ve read), lately I’ve started to grow a great disdain for him. His meddling in the DCU has gotten a bit out of control, and not really for the better. Hopefully I can add a “yet” to that though…
Don’t you read much Garth Ennis? He’s my absolute favorite, and if you haven’t read Preacher you absolutely need to.
Thanks, Phoenix, I like your comments.
Re Garth Ennis: Preacher was awesome, and I’ve got the whole set in trades. Vampires, angels, demons, God, etc. etc. Just amazing stuff, and I can’t really think of anything to compare it to. I just haven’t read any of his stuff since then, for no reason I can think of.
Grant Morrison: I’m a big fan, and continue to be, but also can’t completely disagree with what critics of his writing say about him. His stories can be indecipherable and anti-climactic, but his outlandish ideas make my brain pop.
Authority: Oh yes, huge influence. The first twelve issues simply blew my mind. I really liked the complete lack of sentimentality and melodrama. Incidentally, I should have included Mark Millar in my list, but memory fails sometimes.
