Joe Corallo: Black Comics Matter

This past Wednesday I joined my fellow ComicMix columnist Martha Thomases at the signing for Scout Comics Solarman #1 at Jhu in midtown Manhattan. Present from the creative team were co-writer and Milestone Comics alum Joseph Phillip Illidge as well as illustrator N. Steven Harris. Martha gave a big hug to Joseph Illidge, she introduced me, and they proceeded to catch up. Dakota North even got brought up by Joseph Illidge and not Martha!

On my way home I got a chance to read Solarman #1. For those of you unfamiliar with the character, he was created by Dave Oliphant with Deborah A. Kalman and starred in two issues of his own comic book series at Marvel in early 1989. In the time since then, Dave Oliphant eventually got the publishing rights back and has now found a new home at Scout Comics.

The original iteration of Solarman was a white guy with

Aronofsky, Favreau and Murch to Talk “Movies in Your Brain” at the Academy

Aronofsky, Favreau and Murch to Talk “Movies in Your Brain” at the Academy
As Luc Besson's latest actioner "Lucy" shows us the potential of an unlocked human brain, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is pitching the "science" side of filmmaking. They've enlisted Hollywood brainiacs Walter Murch, Darren Aronofsky, and Jon Favreau to dig into “Movies in Your Brain: The Science of Cinematic Perception,” a panel that mixes presentations and interacts with the audience in order to provide "a fascinating look at how experiments in neuroscience can advance our understanding of cinema, and how cinema can advance our understanding of the human brain.” How, exactly, this panel will illustrate this is a mystery to be solved. They'll be helped by scientists with more degrees than you or I can shake our measly Bachelor’s at who will examine the brain's reactions to various filmic elements such as editing, sound, cinematography and screenwriting. Furthermore, host Tim J. Smith “specializes in the study of visual.
