Zilla and the Comics Junkies

Wednesday, October 05, 2005


Damn there seem to be a ton of good articles today...

I honestly cannot wait for the first issue of this title (Loveless). Solid western comics seem to be missing from the shelves these days and Azarello seems as good a guy as any to bring us one (love me some 100 Bullets).

Check out this question and answer to pique your interest (then read the entire article).
THE PULSE: A Noir Western? Can you elaborate more on the mixing of the genres?

AZZARELLO: Two different sets of sensibilities. A western is about wide open spaces and possibility, a frontier, where the character can reinvent himself. It’s about change. A noir is claustrophobic, more about mistakes and what characters are doomed to become.
Ambitious no?

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
