Christy Admiraal: "There’s no question that anyone who considers himself or herself part of a fandom will have a different read on a piece of media from someone on the outside—whether it’s due to taking in all supplemental material, shipping a certain pairing, participating in fan theorizing, or some combination thereof—but exactly how does their experience differ from a reader or regular viewer who’s never dived any deeper into non-canonical material?"
Jonathan Takiff: "This first-of-a-kind, highly interactive event is part movie, part electronic arcade and Comic-Con gathering. It aims no less than to reshape touring entertainment for the 21st century. The goal is to please a multimedia, seen-it-all audience that craves to live in the moment."
Henry Jenkins: "Today, I want to highlight yet another effort to encourage civic and political reflections around the superhero genre. In this case, I am focusing on a study and reflection guide recently released by the Fandom Forward Project of the Harry Potter Alliance, to encourage conversations about the representation of gender, disability, and political/civic engagement within the extended Marvel universe."
Adam X. Smith: "Lots of media relies on our nostalgia for something we remember from when we were children, and no matter how well or how badly it is executed, the tactic often works for one pretty good reason" ...
Spoilers for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ahead.
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:
Michael R. Underwood: "When Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD was announced, there was excitement, there was wariness, and everything in-between. An ongoing TV show as a tie-in to a powerful superhero franchise? This was something new, something different."
Gene Demby: "Artist Orion Martin recently posted several images reimagining X-Men characters as people of color. This touched off a conversation about race in comic book worlds, and how these comic book depictions relate to real life."
The Nerd Machine: "Not content with ruling the big screen when it comes to comic book movies, Disney/Marvel has inked a rather epic deal with Netflix: four series with 13 episodes each, all leading up to a final team-up miniseries" ....
Seth Rosenblatt: "Comics fans are getting a double-dose of digital innovation this summer, as DC Comics lets you choose your own Batman adventure and revel in new tales of the campy '60s Batman."
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:
Despite the odd hiccup, comics seem to be successfully embracing digital whilst also growing their traditional print base. It makes a great lesson for any of the creative industries struggling with the transition to digital.
Alex Garland: "Dredd moves, his character changes, but he’s like a glacier, you don’t see it change, maybe retrospectively you think ‘hang on, that’s a foot further down the valley than it used to be,’ but it’s kind of it. So that traditional story arc doesn’t apply in Dredd."
Noah J Nelson : "Here’s the heart of the speculation at present: that this TV show will somehow tie into the Marvel “cinematic universe”. Which means that charcters from the TV show could turn up in the next Avengers, or Thor, or Batroc The Leaper."
Eric Alt: '“Media Genres: Media Marvels” will allow Blumberg--a pop culture historian and comic industry veteran--to dig into how Marvel created a cultural landscape where millions of non-geeks pay to watch a talking raccoon fight a Kree zealot on the Nova Corps home world.'
Joseph Oldham: "Whilst certain ‘high-end’ television series are routinely praised for bringing supposedly ‘cinematic’ values to television, it seems to me that the Marvel series doing something which might be conceptualised as the reverse, porting modes of serialised storytelling that have been prominently developed on television over the last few decades into a popular film series."
Jeff Gomez: "More than another action-packed superhero romp, “Winter Soldier” serves as a primer in successfully structuring and steering a sprawling franchise, and stands as a warning to rival Warner Bros. and its DC superheroes that old school one-off tent pole development is becoming a thing of the past."
