4/18 Sketch 9: Recreate a movie scene

You do not have any sort of sketch assignment due this weekend (4/12) so you can focus on putting together your Halfa Kucha presentations.

On Tuesday we’ll start with the Halfa Kucha presentations, then we’ll finish our class period discussing the ending of Good Talk. On Thursday, we’ll finish the Halfa Kucha presentations and then begin discussing our final book, Mister Miracle.

Mister Miracle was created as a character by Jack Kirby — one of the most important early comics creators, he also co-created with Stan Lee Captain America, The Fantastic Four, the X-Men, Thor, The Hulk, and Iron Man, amongst many others. Mister Miracle, a.k.a. Scott Free, was a B-list comic character in Kirby’s fairly well known Fourth World saga, a story that followed the exploits of the New Gods, who hailed from the technologically advanced planets of New Genesis and Apokolips. That series ran it’s course and, though some of its characters entered into the more maintstream comics pantheon, mostly it was forgotten about by any but pretty hardcore comics readers. Tom King and Mitch Gerads then dusted him off and made him relevant in this new series now, without changing the fundamental aspects of his character from the 70s.

You do not need to know anything about superhero comics or Jack Kirby to make sense of the comic. If you are confused at some point and think you need to know more about comics history to make sense of the story, don’t worry it’s just that the story is confusing.
