Ivan Brandon is a New York based writer for comics and other media. He has written a blog on http://www.theawl.com/2012/07/batman-ish which cheered me no end. It is his take on  the relationship between Superhero movies and comics. It is a recognition and appreciation of what comics are and can be. I recommend reading it. For hard core comic lovers it might well induce a feeling of self -affirmation. The page also has some great illustrations. One reproduced here despite my uneasiness at how tame Sirius might look beside it.

One advantage of comics Brandon doesn’t mention is one of my grumpy old man  pet peeves. Movies with their quick-cut editing action scenes have one feeling wtf? Was that fast or was that fiddled?  How did he do that? What is going on?
A comic page not only shows what is going on it allows you to linger and to return to.
