Behind The Scenes

Thanks to the always informative Superman Homepage for sharing this fantastic new YouTube resource. FX guy Steve Johnson has worked on many major Hollywood films over the last 30 years and now that he’s no longer in the biz, he wants to get all his archival footage out there. Steve’s introductory video shows some of what we can expect, such as concept work, deleted scenes and more from films such as Spider-Man 2, Fantastic Four and the so-glad-it-was-never-made Tim Burton Superman film from the mid 1990s. Check it out below.

Work In Comics Site

I meant to mention this a while ago, but here it is now. Below is the press release for the new Work In Comics website. It’s a great idea to get similarly minded comics fans together on creative collaborations. The people behind the wonderful Septagon Studios are behind it, who we featured in Extra Sequential. Check out all the details below.

Work In Comics is a job and collaboration platform which is designed specifically for the needs of putting together comics. Users looking for work or looking to hire will be able to come to Work In Comics to find potential prospects. Why go surfing all over the net when you can come to one place and find what you’re looking for?
The site is designed to gather comic book creators in all areas of comic development to help fulfill their needs of various comic services. Work In Comics is built upon the experiences of many independent creators, and how their careers in the comics industry could have used one or two fewer challenges; this platform will serve as an aid for those creators. Work In Comics provides an all-in-one platform to help aspiring creators build their comic team.

Digested From Gestalt

Now available from Gestalt Publishing are the first two issues of creator Bobby N’s Digested series. Bobby’s work was the highlight for me (and many others) in Gestalt’s recent Flinch anthology, so to see the writer/artist be the focus of these slice of life pages is sure to be a treat. More details and preview pages can be seen at Gestalt’s site.
