Two of my favorite things are heavy metal music and comic books, so whenever I hear that a band writes songs based on a comic (like Iced Earth did with Spawn) or a musician is making comics of their own (like Tom Morello or Claudio Sanchez) I’m curious. The latest collaboration between a band and comic book creator is Matt Miner (Liberator) and Earth Crisis for Liberator/Earth Crisis: Salvation of Innocents. (more…)

Sometimes you invest so much time into something you don’t want it to end, because the ending is the author’s final statement on a work, and what he wanted to say isn’t how you took what he said. This is the dilemma LOST faced and the creators ended it the only way they could with an ending that reminds me of the conclusions to CS Lewis’s The Last Battle, the final book in The Chronicles of Narnia.
