Beyond the Galaxy 081809 -- Being an occasional assemblage of links to posts and articles I found enjoyable, informative and/or infuriating.

* A succinct summation of how the Watchmen movie missed the point of the graphic novel.

* Christopher Allen (and Happy Birthday, Chris!) begins a look at the fickle finger of fandom.

* Frank Santoro loves Tom Kaczynski's comics as much as me, and understands and explains them even better.

* Christopher Butcher does one of his long-ass posts that I always love, this one about the emerging Mega-Culture.

* Spurge interviews Josh Neufeld. I am really looking forward to reading AD: New Orleans After the Deluge.

* My favourite quote of the week, from Dirk Deppey: "Wesley Smith asks why movie sales don’t translate into comics sales. Actually, they sometimes do: Dan Clowes’ Ghost World and various Alan Moore-written books do in fact see a distinct increase in sales following the release of film adaptations. The trick is creator-centric, as the books that do well tend to be made by skilled storytellers and possess novel-like beginnings, middles and endings."

* Not comics: I loves me some chicken.
