Weekly Reading Round-Up : 11/10/2019 – 11/16/2019

Ryan C.'s Four Color Apocalypse

After a week off to attend the superb Short Run Comix & Arts Festival in Seattle, the Round-Up is back, and we’ve got four first issues to take a look at because, hey, every week at your LCS there are at least four “number ones,” if not more, are there not? It sure as hell seems like it —

First off, Joe Hill’s horror comics imprint at DC, Hill House, gives us The Dollhouse Family #1 by the veteran pairing of Mike Carey (here writing, for reasons unknown, under the pretentious moniker of “M.R. Carey”) and Peter Gross, joined this time out by the criminally under-utilized Vince Locke, who for my money has always been — and remains — one of the most distinctive artists working in the comics mainstream. Gross is credited with “layouts,” Locke with “finishes,” which means this looks to be about 75% Locke, at least, and…

Grace Kroll’s “Tulpa” : That Voice In Your Head Is Getting Louder —

Ryan C.'s Four Color Apocalypse

To the extent that I understand the term, a tulpa is an independent thoughtform created by a person that shares their brain but has thoughts, feelings, etc. of its own. Tibetan monks were — and may still be — big on these things, and David Lynch’s interest in their teachings and traditions undoubtedly played a big part in their inclusion in Twin Peaks : The Return, but he added the twist of giving them actual, physical reality by means of rather standard hair-and-blood magickal conjuring. That’s how we ended up with three different versions of Special Agent Dale Cooper. But I guess that’s neither here nor there for purposes of this review, as the one in the comic we’re here to take a look at, Seattle-based cartoonist Grace Kroll’s self-published Tulpa, exists purely within her mind — and isn’t exactly the most welcome of guests.

Music Video Of The Day: On the Radio by Regina Spektor (2006, dir by Adam Levite)

I don’t have a lot to say about this video.  I just like it.  It’s a good video.  Stewart Moncure shared it during Saturday’s #ILikeToWatch live tweet and I was reminded of how much I’ve always liked this song and this video.  Watching it, I’m reminded of when I briefly wanted to be a teacher.  I wouldn’t have taught music, though.  I can’t carry a tune to save my life.  Instead, I would have taught …. well, Drama is kind of the obvious choice but if I could teach anything, I’d probably teach history.  I mean, we could solve so many of our problems today if people actually knew more about history than what they see on twitter or read on Wikipedia.  Oh well.

Anyway, enjoy!
