22 panels that always work!!

some guy came up with three pages of reminders that he posted at his work station while making sequential art. Someone condensed it to a page and showed it to someone at Marvel comics and from then on, it became a classic. Collapse )

Everything you ever wanted to know about Wally Wood

Looking for a more detailed analysis of that "22 Panels That Always Work" thing, I found the source of the image I saved and posted (previous post):

but that was still not an analysis of the content. If I don't find such an analysis, I might do one myself someday. While searching though, I found a detailed biography of Wally Wood:

Puss in Boots (2011)

I enjoyed "Puss in Boots" (2011) yesterday. I had a choice of 2D or 3D and now that I have seen it, I think I should have watched the 3D one instead of the 2D that I watched due to the high number of shots that begged to be in 3D. The film has a very different feel then the Shrek movies but like them has references to many fairie tale and nursery rhyme characters. The only connection is the one lead character (no other characters make cameos that I noticed). One running character gag that I, at first, thought was stupid but found myself and many in the audience laughing out loud at was a cat that seemed worried about something someone said. Here is a youtube of said cat

and a comercial spot based on that gag
