I really enjoyed your "Batman 3000" post the other day. (That giant pink space alien Robin is top notch stuff) Would you and J. Gonzo ever consider doing it as a COPRA-style homage/fan-comic kind of thing?
I thought about doing exactly that for years, but the problem is that a lot of my ideas, the ones about Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman and so on, use all the STUFF that goes along with them. Like, for Batman 3000, it wasn’t just Batman, it was Batman and his relationship with Talia and the League of Assassins, patching up a hole in the Legion of Super-Heroes’ future and calling back to the sci-fi stories of the ’50s — and that’s before J brought in Robin and Bat-Mite to really seal it.
I’d love to do the “filing off the serial numbers” sort of thing and do the story with analogues, like Supreme or Edison Rex or even Squadron Supreme, but without being able to use that specific stuff, you lose a lot of the impact and a lot of the reason for existing. A kid fighting against Talia in 3014 AD to revive the legacy of Batman is something that’s easy to care about, but if he’s just fighting for the “legacy” of a character you’ve never heard of, how much interest are you going to lose just from the start? The stuff is the thing in that story, sadly, and doing it as an analogue character would mean that I’d have to go out of my way to explain everything and set it all up, while at the same time having less impact.
Besides, I can just do analogue stuff in Dracula.
Sneak peek of Adventure Time “Food Chain” episode written, storyboarded and directed by Masaaki Yuasa (Mind Game).
Have you watched Mind Game yet? Find it online. FIND IT ONLINE! This man is a perfect fit for Adventure Time.
I haven’t seen Mind Game but I’ve seen Cat Soup. He also apparently did key animation for the exact episode of Samurai Champloo that I would have guessed
[I]f the Republicans want to spend the entire next six months or year talking about repealing a bill that provides millions of people health insurance without providing any meaningful alternative, instead of wanting to talk about jobs and the economic situation of families all across the country, that’s their prerogative. At some point I think they’ll make the transition. That’s my hope, anyway. If not, we’re just going to keep on doing what we’re doing, which is making it work for people all across the country.
I’m sorry, I’m going to say one last thing about this, just because this does frustrate me: States that have chosen not to expand Medicaid for no other reason than political spite. You’ve got 5 million people who could be having health insurance right now at no cost to these states—zero cost to these states—other than ideological reasons. They have chosen not to provide health insurance for their citizens. That’s wrong. It should stop. Those folks should be able to get health insurance like everybody else.
- President Obama
Most of the states with Republican governors who have opted out of the Medicaid expansion have very poor people living there, too. These governors are deliberately hurting their own citizens because they don’t like the president. That’s just wrong.

Thank you for linking that. I wish that reblog comments echoed their way back onto posts more effectively.
