The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: A good start with Fandom artists


This is kinda awesome: A guide to all Sci-fi/Fantasy stuff that comes out in January: that is comics, books, series and movies! I think I will come back in February and so on if this will be a monthly occurrence!

OMG new Pixar stuff! Yep, they sent a New Year’s card and it got scanned. And I thank it so frigging much. It’s concept art for their future projects: The Good Dinosaur, the possibly titled The Inside Out, and the as-yet untitled film about Dia de los Muertos.


I’m already diggin this The Good Dinosaur though… because dinosaurs!

After many questions about his work in general and Moonrise Kingdom in particular, Wes Anderson gets asked the Star Wars question all directors are getting asked lately… and yeah, I kinda agree with his answer. It would have been interesting though… and I dig the short film about Han Solo~

Well, I have a feeling I would probably ultimately get replaced on the film because I don’t know if I have all the right action chops. But at least I know the characters from the old films […] I don’t think I would do a terrible job at a Han Solo backstory. I could do that pretty well. But maybe that would be better as a short.

Talking about Star Wars, this Saturday, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will reach its 100th episode, titled Missing In Action. Now that’s an achievement! Here’s the trailer:

Remember that one time where David Cronenberg said Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises wasn’t high cinematic art… it wasn’t personal, because he thinks the whole comic book movie genre cannot be high cinematic art~

To me, that limits the discourse of your movie if you’re basing it accurately on that, and you cannot rise to the highest level of cinematic art. That’s my take on it. I went on to say that, of course, technically they can be incredibly interesting, since there are very clever people making the movie and, of course, have a lot of money they are throwing at it. But creatively, artistically, they are incredibly limited.

Ok, you are entitled to your opinion, but don’t forget you did A History of Violence, based on a comic book. Fine, he was probably talking about superhero comic books, but still!

Joseph Gordon-Lewitt became another possible actor for Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Peter Quill/Star-Lord part. So now we have Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace, Eddie Redmayne, Zachary Levi and JGL. Yeah, I’m still not feeling any of these dudes. I mean sure, I’d love Pace or Redmayne, but that is because I am a shallow, shallow person and they are quite pretty. But, Star-Lord spends most of his starlordy time with a helmet/mask on, so I don’t know how much “Peter Quill” time we will have. Still, I trust you, Marvel!

Big bulky makeovers for some comic characters! I’m mostly invested in X-Men’s Beast though~ He doesn’t look cat-like anymore. In fact, he kinds look like the Beast I remember from the 90s cartoon, except bigger and with a haircut. On the other hand, Venom looks huge and makes me feel afraid for my poor baby Miles Morales. Yeah, I’ve got nothing on Black Orchid because I barely remember what he looked like before. Sorry, DC Comics.

OMG! Noelle Stevenson a.k.a GingerHaze drew the backup of Adventure Time With Fionna & Cake #1! The story is called The Sweater Bandit and the preview pages look cute and I feel strangely proud of her. Must be because she was the first fanartist I followed on Tumblr. I am also glad to know she had an awesome 2012.
