newnumber6: (comics)
Another Prisoners of Gravity ep, this time on Myths and Archetypes in comic books and speculative fiction.

Part 1: Charles deLint on including and playing with mythological material, and using obscure mythological names, Robert Sawyer on Golden Fleece and including/adapting certain themes from Greek mythology, Walt Simonson on Thor in Marvel comics, Chris Claremont on superheroes as modern mythology
Part 2: Neil Gaiman on Superman, Dave McKean and Grant Morrison (WITH HAIR!!) on Arkham Asylum and Batman, Clive Barker on whether there's a 'collective unconscious' of horror, Robert Hadji,
'horror expert', on Frankenstein's Monster, Matt Wagner on Grendel (the comic series)
Part 3: Charles deLint on Beowulf, and where fantasy authors get their ideas, Guy Gabriel Kay on Joseph Campbell's "Hero of a Thousand Faces", Candas Jane Dorsey on Star Trek as Modern Myth, Chris Claremont again on how the stories of the past/today become the myths of today/tomorrow (Brother Power: The Geek reference!).

In other news, as everyone probably already knows, [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily was shut down. There's a new one over at InsaneJournal, where I'll be (had to create an account, but that also means I can use lots more icons, since you get 100 free there), and also a [livejournal.com profile] noscans_daily here, but, I can't see myself following that one. End of an era, still.
