Saga of the Swamp Thing # 35, 36 37 - Moore, Bissette Totleben

Saga of the Swamp Thing # 35, 36 37 - Moore, Bissette Totleben

By Arion in Reviews on February 19, 2013

Stephen Bissette & John Totleben Could you put a price to the life of your children? Can everything in this world be bought or sold? These quandaries are common in today’s society, and I imagine Alan Moore must have been musing about it before he sat down to write “The Nukeface Papers”, which was published in Saga of the Swamp Thing # 35 and 36 in April and May, 1985. Everything begins in a peaceful afternoon. Abby is sleeping next to Swamp Thing, the trees are blossoming, the flowers are colorful and the only odd intruders are the newspaper pages that have been thrown away: “He watches the sheets of newsprint flap like huge moths, crippled by their own weight, hopping clumsily amongst the black trees. Their pages are full of obsolete tragedies and discarded faces; all the carefully logged hysteria of a world he no longer belongs to”.  And then, a couple of miles away, an old man nicknamed Nukeface runs into a young runaway. Nukeface is clearly a homeless drunk, and he immediately starts drinking a strange glowing fluid while he talks about Pennsylvania and the way a certain company disposed of their nuclear wastes. Contamination is part of our life, but sometimes we forget how serious the consequences are, especially when corporative responsibility is a scarce virtue. There have been films –like Steven Soderbergh’s Erin Brokovich– that show the tremendous cruelty of certain companies that deliberately poisoned people with radioactivity and/or chemical substances. These companies were never held accountable for their acts, until the people started suing them for millions of dollars, in some cases –in the Erin Brokovich story– the people won, in other cases, they didn’t. Those are real life situations, but what Alan Moore does here is disguise the horror of corporative greed in an allegorical tale of death and putrefaction. When Nukeface gives the young runaway a taste of his beverage, we understand what he has been drinking all along: nuclear wastes. Quickly, the young man starts decomposing until he dies. And Nukeface keeps searching for nuclear wastes. He knows the company is no longer disposing of them in Pennsylvania due to lawsuits, they’re now burying all of it into the swamps of Louisiana. When Swamp Thing runs into Nukeface, he’s contaminated by his radioactive body. If the Swamp Thing is a creature of nature, there can be nothing more lethal to him than contamination. And slowly but surely, he starts rotting.  Nukeface / Cara-Nuclear The conclusion of the story is told from the perspective of eight different characters. They all share what they know, as readers we can easily piece together the puzzle after we see what these men and women have gone through. This is an extraordinary narrative device that only a handful of writers would know how to use properly. Alan Moore shows why he is one of the best and most influential authors in recent decades by connecting the dots and adding an unmatched layer of complexity. There are moments of true horror in these pages, and in the end Nukeface remains at large. Nothing can deter him, not the people who died in their presence, nor the putrefied fauna. But perhaps the scariest part is that Nukeface is not the real monster. He’s the product of those who seek only profit and care not for life. The real monster is the company, but this time there are no lawsuits, no happy endings to speak of… only a final page that reunites dozens of newspaper clips (selected by Moore) that are testimonies of people who developed cancer as a result of radioactive or chemical exposure; they were victims, above all, of the indifference and ruthlessness of the companies who disposed of their thrash without worrying about the consequences.      Swamp Thing decomposing / Swamp Thing descomponiéndose After such an intense story, one would think that Alan Moore would take it easy for an issue or two. But that’s not the case. On the contrary, “Growth Patterns” is the prelude of Swamp Thing’s most epic saga: American Gothic. And this issue also marks the first historical appearance of John Constantine, a British bloke, a chronic smoker, a dabbler in the mystic arts and a cold bastard that could outwit any sorcerer or demon on Earth. A few years later, John Constantine would be the protagonist of Hellblazer, a Vertigo title that lasted for over 25 years. These are his –not so much– humbling beginnings. Stephen Bissette and John Totleben surprise us again with some of the most haunting images ever. Let’s take a look at the horror of human misery and the corporal decay of Nukeface, which is made evident in the putrid face of this alcoholic / addict to nuclear wastes. I saw this drawing for the first time over 14 years ago and I was marveled by the details and the overall design. This is a comic book page that I could never forget. Seeing the Swamp Thing melting in a pool of radioactive fluids is also a powerful moment. The body language and the physical attributes of the eight characters that narrate this story are carefully depicted by the creative team, Billy Hatcher is a good example of that. Finally, “Growth Patterns” counts with Rick Veitch as penciler and thanks to him we see a young John Constantine and his lover Emma who is drawing an invunche, a homicidal demon that eventually will find his way into this world, as we can see in the next page. The idea of a humanoid with a hand sewn inside his own body and his head turned in an impossible way that defies death is quite a shocking figure. Of course, Bissette and Totleben are also in charge of the covers, and their amazing visual concepts and detailed work are a privilege and a joy to behold. _____________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________ Billy Hatcher ¿La vida de tus hijos tiene un precio? ¿Todo en este mundo puede ser comprado o vendido? Estas interrogantes son comunes en la sociedad actual, e imagino que Alan Moore debe haber meditado sobre ello antes de sentarse a escribir "Los periódicos de Cara-Nuclear", publicados en "Saga of the Swamp Thing" # 35 y 36 en abril y mayo de 1985. Todo empieza en una pacífica tarde. Abby duerme al lado de Swamp Thing, los árboles están reverdeciendo, las flores brotan y los únicos raros intrusos son los papeles periódicos que han sido arrojados por ahí: "Él observa las hojas impresas que aletean como gigantescas polillas, agobiadas por su propio peso, chocando torpemente contra los negros árboles. Sus páginas están llenas de tragedias obsoletas y rostros descartados; toda la histeria cuidadosamente registrada de un mundo al que él ya no pertenece".   John Constantine Y luego, a un par de millas, un viejo apodado Cara-Nuclear se cruza con un joven fugitivo. Cara-Nuclear es un vagabundo borracho, y de inmediato empieza a tomar un extraño líquido brillante mientras habla sobre Pennsylvania y la forma en que una empresa desechaba sus residuos nucleares. La contaminación es parte de nuestra vida, pero a veces olvidamos qué tan serias pueden ser las conse-cuencias, en especial cuando la responsabilidad corporativa es una virtud escaza. Hay películas -como "Erin Brokovich" de Steven Soderbergh- que muestran la tremenda crueldad de ciertas compañías que envenenan a personas, a conciencia, con radioactividad o sustancias químicas. Estas compañías no asumen responsabilidad alguna por sus actos, hasta que la gente empieza a demandarlas por millones de dólares, en algunos casos -en la historia de "Erin Brokovich"- la gente gana, en otros, no. Estas situaciones son de la vida real, pero lo que Alan Moore hace aquí es disfrazar el horror de la codicia corporativa en una historia alegórica de muerte y putrefacción. Cuando Cara-Nuclear le da al joven vagabundo un sorbo de su bebida, entendemos qué es lo que ha estado tomando desde el inicio: residuos nucleares. Rápidamente, el joven empieza a descomponerse hasta que muere. Y Cara-Nuclear sigue en su búsqueda de desechos radioactivos. Él sabe que la compañía ya no los deja en Pennsylvania a causa de las demandas, y ahora los entierran en los pantanos de Louisiana. Cuando Swamp Thing encuentra a Cara-Nuclear, es contaminado por su cuerpo radioactivo. Si Swamp Thing es una criatura de la naturaleza, nada es más letal para él que la contaminación. Y lentamente, empieza a podrirse. Invunche La conclusión de la historia es contada desde la perspectiva de ocho personajes diferentes. Todos comparten lo que saben, como lectores podemos armar las piezas del rompe-cabezas después de ver todo lo que experimentan estos hombres y mujeres. Este es un extraordinario recurso narrativo que sólo un puñado de escritores sabría cómo usar de modo adecuado. Alan Moore nos muestra por qué él es uno de los mejores y más influyentes autores de las últimas décadas al conectar todos los puntos y añadir así un nivel de complejidad sin precedentes. Hay momentos de verdadero terror en estas páginas, y al final Cara-Nuclear sigue libre. Nada puede detenerlo, ni la gente que murió en su presencia, ni la fauna que se pudrió. Pero tal vez lo más terrible es que Cara-Nuclear no es el monstruo real. Él es el producto de aquellos que buscan sólo ganancias, sin preocuparse por la vida. El monstruo real es la compañía, pero esta vez no hay demandas ni finales felices... sólo una última página que reúne docenas de recortes de periódico (seleccionador por Moore) que son testimonios de personas que desarrollaron algún tipo de cáncer como resultado de la exposición química o radioactiva; ellos fueron víctimas, después de todo, de la indiferencia y la frialdad de las compañías que botaron su basura sin preocuparse de las consecuencias. Después de una historia tan intensa, uno pensaría que Alan Moore se tomaría las cosas con calma. Pero eso no es así. Por el contrario, "Patrones de crecimiento" es el preludio de la saga más épica de Swamp Thing: American Gothic. Y este ejemplar también marca la primera aparición histórica de John Constantine, un sujeto británico, un fumador crónico, un investigador de las artes místicas y un frío bastardo capaz de engañar a cualquier hechicero o demonio sobre la Tierra. Pocos años después, John Constantine sería el protagonista de Hellblazer, un título de Vertigo que duró por más de 25 años. Estos son sus -nada humildes- orígenes. Stephen Bissette y John Totleben nos sorprenden de nuevo con imágenes alucinantes. Veamos el horror de la miseria humana y la descomposición corporal de Cara-Nuclear, que se hace evidente en el pútrido rostro de este alcohólico / adicto a los residuos nucleares. Vi este dibujo por primera vez hace más de 14 años y quedé maravillado por los detalles y el diseño en general. Este es un cómic que nunca podría olvidar. Ver a Swamp Thing derritiéndose en un charco de fluidos radioactivos es también un poderoso momento. El lenguaje corporal y los atributos físicos de los ochos personajes que narran esta historia son retratados con sumo cuidado por el equipo creativo, Billy Hatcher es un buen ejemplo de ello. Finalmente, "Patrones de crecimiento" cuenta con los lápices de Rick Veitch y gracias a él vemos a un joven John Constantine y a su amante Emma quien dibuja un invunche, un demonio homicida que eventualmente se abrirá paso en nuestro mundo, tal como vemos en la página siguiente. La idea de un humanoide con una mano cosida dentro de su propio cuerpo y su cabeza volteada de una manera que desafía la muerte causan una fuerte impresión. Desde luego, Bissette y Totleben también están a cargo de las portadas, y sus asombrosos conceptos visuales y detallado trabajo son un privilegio y un disfrute para quien los contempla.   Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/02/saga-of-swamp-thing-35-36-37-moore.html

Review: Dungeons Dragons Volume 1 Shadowplague

Review: Dungeons Dragons Volume 1 Shadowplague

By Rui Esteves in Reviews on February 18, 2013

Cover Dungeons & Dragons Volume 1 Shadowplague marks the beginning of a new D&D inspired fantasy adventure from IDW. This book follows a band of heroes while they quest for the source of a mysterious dark force that is creating havoc in the world. They must get get to the bottom of the Shadowplague in order to more darkness from spilling into their world. Orcs, Elves, swords and sorcery, ancient magic and trans-world struggle for power are just a few of the aspects found in this first Volume. How is it? In good D&D fashion each of our heroes has a different race and class. Meet Adric the Human warrior and leader, Bree Three-Hands the Halfling thief, Varis the Elf ranger, Khal Khalundurrin the Dwarf Paladin and Tisha Swornheart the Tiefling Wizard. Flush! Luck is strong with Adric. His plans are notorious for being bad but coming together at the very last second. Bree is a very skilled thief and trap detector, Varis is the resident archer, Kahl is the poet and basically works as the tank of the group and Tisha is the power house. Varis and Kahl also work as the moral compass to Adric's decisions. Its a rich and diverse party indeed. One night at the tavern Adric's party is just having a drink when all of a sudden zombies break through the floor and all hell breaks loose. From there things get out of control and Adric, with the help of his party, must fight through Orc armies, ancient ghosts, evil dark elves and a myriad of other fantastic creatures. Dungeons & Dragons Volume 1 Shadowplague is a fun book to read, even more so if you have a natural affinity with the fantasy genre. You don't have to be fluent in D&D lingo or even in the game itself to enjoy this book. It is just a good and fun fantasy book that anyone can enjoy. However having played D&D will give you something extra. The Gang Sprints to Action There are many aspects of the game that are present here. Aspects like the class and race of the characters, the dungeons and their traps, the wizard vs sorcerer take on magic, Adric's luck, and many more. But John Rogers does a great job at keeping this under tight reins and accessible for everyone. Andrea Di Vito is in charge of the art in this book and he does an excellent job at it. The character models are spectacular, the detail in every panel is great. There are some awesome full page panel that are true delights to the eyes. My only complaint, if I can call it that, is that Andrea could have been  more adventurous with the panel dynamics. This hardcover is printed in a bigger size than standard american books. This makes the inside art look even more fantastic. This book is a delight to read, to look at and to touch. It also looks great on my shelf. Grabby Zombie Hands Verdict? I love this book. This is one of my, if not THE, favorite fantasy comic book. I can't recommend it enough. Don't be frightened at the D&D label. Buy it, read it, love it. Then buy another copy and give it away to someone you like. There should be more books like this one.

Great Pacific # 1-3 - Joe Harris Martin Morazzo

Great Pacific # 1-3 - Joe Harris Martin Morazzo

By Arion in Reviews on February 17, 2013

We produce millions of tons of garbage every day, and most of it is non-biodegradable. What would happen if all the trash in the world is dumped in the same place? Writer Joe Harris develops a rather interesting concept, an island in the middle of the Pacific almost as big as a continent, entirely composed by debris and junk. Who could be a better protagonist than the heir of an oil fortune, the son of a man responsible for contaminating our world? Chas Worthington is 21 years old, very rich, very handsome and a bit reckless. He has a brilliant mind and is focusing all his inventiveness in solving the problem of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, but of course, no one takes him seriously, until he fakes his death in the hands of mercenary. Immediately afterwards, Chas moves to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and declares himself as the leader of this new sovereign nation. But this is an artificial and unexplored island, with all the plastic and chemical wastes, there have been mutations, something that Chas confronts first hand as he is almost drowned by a gigantic octopus. In these first issues, Joe Harris asks the most important questions about ecology and the way we see and treat our planet, but above all the author also proposes some sort of solution for the contamination debacles of our era, these solutions may only work in fiction but they are still worth reading about. When I first laid my eyes on the solicitations for Great Pacific, I found the premise interesting but I had no idea who the writer was. I almost skip it but I immediately saw Martin Morazzo’s amazing cover and I decided to give it a go. And I’m glad I did, because Martin has a great artistic style, slightly reminiscent of Frank Quitely and, above all, Italians like Vittorio Giardino; he is expressive and his sleek lines are a joy to admire. Morazzo’s wonderful sense of design is made evident in the covers. Each one of them presents this island of garbage under different angles, and they also present Chas Worthington as a brave young man in the first issue, a desperate survivor about to drown in the second and an exhausted adventurer in the third. There are some really great double page spreads, like the one in which we see Chas admiring his newly founded kingdom. The page of the attack of the giant octopus is splendid and the page in which we see Chas sinking into deep waters is gorgeous. There is also a careful balance between details and single figures, as we see Chas investigating an airplane that has just crashed into the thrash. Great Pacific is a really good series and I’m glad I was there for the beginning.  Great Pacific Garbage Patch / Gran Parche de Basura del Pacífico ___________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________ giant octopus attacks Chas / un pulpo gigante ataca a Chas Producimos millones de toneladas de basura todos los días, y la mayor parte no es biodegradable. ¿Qué pasaría si todos los desperdicios del mundo fueran arrojados al mismo lugar? El escritor Joe Harris desarrolla un concepto bastante interesante, una isla en medio del Pacífico casi tan grande como un continente, enteramente compuesta de desechos y basura. ¿Quién podría ser un mejor protagonista que el heredero de una fortuna petrolera, el hijo de un hombre responsable por contaminar el mundo? Chas Worthington tiene 21 años, es rico, guapo y un poco impulsivo. Tiene una mente brillante y está enfocando toda su creatividad en resolver el problema del Gran Parche de Basura del Pacífico, pero por supuesto, nadie lo toma en serio, hasta que finge su muerte a manos de un mercenario.    below the garbage patch / debajo del parche de basura De inmediato, Chas se muda al Gran Parche de Basura del Pacífico y se declara como líder de esta nueva nación soberana. Pero esta es una isla artificial, inexplorada; con todo el plástico y los residuos químicos, ha habido mutaciones, algo que Chas confronta por sí mismo cuando es casi ahogado por un pulpo gigantesco. En estos primeros números, Joe Harris hace importantes preguntas sobre la ecología y la forma en que tratamos nuestro planeta, pero por encima de todo, el autor también propone algún tipo de solución a los desastres de la contaminación, estas soluciones sólo funcionan en la ficción pero aun así vale la pena leer cuáles son. Cuando le di un vistazo a las solicitaciones de "Great Pacific" ("Gran Pacífico"), la premisa me pareció interesante pero no tenía ni idea de quién era el escritor. Casi la dejo a un lado pero de inmediato vi la asombrosa portada de Martin Morazzo y decidí darle una oportunidad. Y estoy contento de haberlo hecho, porque Martin tiene un grandioso estilo artístico, ligeramente reminiscente a Frank Quitely y sobre todo a italianos como Vittorio Giardino; es expresivo y sus líneas suaves son un verdadero disfrute.  Chas looking for survivors / Chas buscando sobrevivientes El maravilloso sentido del diseño de Morazzo se hace evidente en sus portadas. Cada una de ellas presenta esta isla de basura bajo distintos ángulos y también se presenta a Chas Worthington como un valiente joven en el primer ejemplar, un desesperado sobreviviente a punto de ahogarse en el segundo y un exhausto aventurero en el tercero. Además, hay algunas páginas dobles tremendas, como aquella en la que Chas está admirando su recién fundado reino. La página del ataque del pulpo gigante es espléndida y la página en la que vemos a Chas hundiéndose en aguas profundas es hermosa. Hay un cuidadoso balance entre los detalles y las figuras solas, al ver a Chas investigando un avión que se ha estrellado en los desperdicios. "Great Pacific" es una serie realmente buena y me alegra haber estado ahí desde el principio.   Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/02/great-pacific-1-3-joe-harris-martin.html

Vera Greentea started another adventure in Kickstarter to fund the book PAPA. The book is written by Vera and the art is left at the capable hands of artists Ben Jelter, Lizzy John and Joseph Lacroix. PAPA is a 50 page collection of 3 dark fantasy stories PAPA, The Princess and the Robot and Nightbirds. Vera started the incentive rewards at $0 with some very cool free stuff in the comment section. That's right, you don't need to give anything to get something in return. But check out the incentive rewards, its a very rewarding project. PAPA Vera Greentea presents the project: You can became a backer of this project and help Vera Greentea get this book to the printers and to fathers around the world until the 13th of April, 2013.I found this concept intriguing. At least intriguing enough to be curious about the book, The art style is moody and enviousness a felling of desolation and loneliness. Usually I'm interested in stories about parenting, or parent - sons/daughters relationship, but when you throw in some dark fantasy in the mix then there is no resisting it.For more information check the Kickstarter project page.
