Pop Artifact! Captain Marvel necktie

Vintage DC Comics PSA ad

Pop Culture Roundup May 31, 2006

Entertainment Weekly has a report on Cirque de Soleil's "Love," which uses music by the Beatles. Former Fabs producer George Martin and son Giles prepared the tunes for the show, which features new mixes and "mashups" of familiar songs.

Another previewed number had George Harrison's ''Within You Without You'' set to the backing track of John Lennon's ''Tomorrow Never Knows.'' Sir George Martin, who produced the original tracks and worked on this show, was on hand for the event and explained that the Harrison tune ''wasn't [fans'] favorite song on Sgt. Pepper... but in this form, it would have been one of the good ones.'' Martin added that the surviving Beatles were wary of what was being done with the music till they heard this ''Within You Without You''/''Tomorrow Never Knows'' mashup — and ''then the problem was, they wanted them all like that.'' Martin and his son, Giles, who did the lion's share of the remixing, weren't able to blend many songs so completely. ''The problem was, there aren't many Beatles songs that stay on one chord,'' the elder Martin noted.

Pop Culture Roundup May 30, 2006

According to the Los Angeles Times: Digital scanning and sharing of comic books have begun to make a dent in the business, driven by easy-to-use file-sharing tools and a culture in which enthusiasts eagerly pass along their copies to one another.

-----------------------

Dial B for Blog presents a nice collection of vintage DC Comics subscription ads.

-----------------------

This year will be a "banner year for diversity" in comic books, according to The New York Times.

At DC Comics, an effort is under way to introduce heroes who are not cut from the usual straight white male supercloth. A mix of new concepts, dusted-off code names and existing characters, the new heroes include Blue Beetle, a Mexican teenager powered by a mystical scarab; Batwoman, a lesbian socialite by night and a crime fighter by later in the night; and the Great Ten, a government-sponsored Chinese team.

Over at Marvel Comics, Black Panther, king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, will soon marry Storm, the weather-controlling mutant and X-Man. Luke Cage, a strong-as-steel black street fighter who married his white girlfriend in April, plays a key role in "New Avengers," the company's best-selling book.


-------------------------

The official "Lost" podcast recaps the season ender.

-------------------------

British jazz violinist Jack Fallon, heard fiddling on the Beatles' "Don't Pass Me By," died yesterday.

Remembering Alex Toth

The artist/animator/designer extraordinaire passed away May 27, his son Eric reports.

Toth was one of the greats: Starting out in comics' golden age and helping to revolutionize visual story telling. He did excellent work in pretty much every genre: superheroes, sci-fi, romance, horror and Westerns. As a pioneer, he was right up there with Will Eisner and Jack Kirby. His page design, use of blacks and lettering were all things of beauty. Later, he went on to do animation work, coming up with character designs for the Herculoids, Super Friends and many more. Whether we knew it or not, a lot of us grew up on images that came out of Toth's pen.
