In the wind-swept lands north of the Roman built Hadrian’s Wall, the tumultuous history of Scotland unfolded over the centuries. A wee five years into the last millennium, Mac Bethad mac Findlaích (1005 – 1057) was born and probably raised in the county of Moray, where the lad became Mormaer of Moray in the early 1030s. He later became King of the Scots until his death in 1057. The name Mac Bethad may sound familiar for some readers; he is after all the king who inspired William Shakespeare to pen The Tragedy of Macbeth over 500 years later. Make another quick time leap to 2018 and land at writer Shaun Manning and artist Anna Wieszczyk’s Macbeth: The Red King, a comic book due to release soon from Lucha Comics/The Shooting Star Press Inc.
Here’s how you set the mood to read Nailbiter: Turn on YouTube (or talk to Alexa or Siri or whatever you have) and put on the sound of a storm in the background (or if you have a real storm, even better, but I live in Los Angeles where lightning doesn’t exist), then you go to YouTube, maybe a second time, if you already have storm sounds playing, and you turn on the original score to Se7en by Howard Shore, and then sit back and just try to peel yours eyes away from the pages. You won’t; you can’t.
Ken Reynolds is back with a new issue of Sliced Quarterly, collecting short comic works for our collective enjoyment. This issue is stuffed full of moving and intriguing work, with more emphasis on irregular or deconstructed narrative and experimental art. This issue will make you think, it will make you feel, and it has some really lovely instances of emotional communication. I'll briefly cover each one and my reactions to it, as I feel this collection is more about the artistic value and the discussions that could be prompted from the different reactions that they elicit.
“A mountain walked or stumbled. God! What wonder that across the earth a great architect went mad… The Thing of the idols, the green, sticky spawn of the stars, had awaked to claim his own. The stars were right again… After vigintillions of years great Cthulhu was loose again, and ravening for delight.”
One of the best ways to occupy one’s time is to dive into a good story. The world around us goes quiet as we become lost in a fantastic world with intriguing characters. Books are not only a wonderful way to expand our imaginations, but they also lead to wonderful adaptations on the big screen. J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter has seen the popular series turned into a beloved film franchise, while expanding into the world of theme parks and exhibits. Marvel’s cinematic universe has also propelled itself from the text and artwork of many different comic books to movies, TV shows, and more.
