I don’t entirely agree on Prometheus, but this is beautiful, and a beautiful tribute to Archie Goodwin.

I’ve got a Talos statue that watches over me while I work. <3
I’ve said this before on here, but Harryhausen was truly one of the first influences on my art that I can remember. And I’ll never forget the time I met him at San Diego Comic Con: I told him how much of an inspiration his films have been for me, and he told me that my tattoos will never come off.
RIP Ray Harryhausen.
RIP Ray Harryhausen. An absolute visionary who populated the imagination of generations.
If I had to choose a single creature, I suspect I’d choose Talos who I’m amazed I’ve never tried to write into any of my comics. I could have made GIFs of the whole scene, but I’ll go for this gloriously creepy moment.
I would be hard pressed to think of any author, artist or musician who had as much influence on my creativity when I was young, malleable and receptive, as Ray Harryhausen. He made gods, and he made monsters, and through that magic he made heroes and he made stories.
Everything I love, everything I believe about the power, the excitement, the wonder of storytelling, starts with this man painstakingly moving the bones of a walking skeleton. Watching Jason & The Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad sparked my imagination like nothing else. Ray Harryhausen was a visionary, and I tell stories because of him. I count myself among the creatures he made.
Thank you, Ray. I will celebrate your life and work with my friends this week, but I will also celebrate it for the rest of my days in every story that I write. It all began with you.
“ When the size of the budget is held constant, films with female protagonists or prominent females in an ensemble cast earn similar box office grosses (domestic, international, opening weekend) and DVD sales as films with male protagonists. Because films featuring male protagonists have larger budgets, they earn larger box office grosses. However, the differences in box office grosses are not caused by the sex of the protagonist but by the size of the budget. Films with larger budgets generate larger grosses, regardless of the sex of the protagonist.”
It’s almost like not having faith in the protagonist and underfunding a film leads to a self-fulfilling prophecy that something about that protagonist isn’t bankable!
