“[T]he third section of the movie also contains an image that’s remarkably Kirby-like. When Dave enters the Discovery’s computer center to “kill” HAL, he’s shot from below, looking like one of Kirby’s iconic superhumans. As an artist, Kirby made sense for 2001, because he excelled at drawing futuristic technology and he thought in widescreen. Visually, the 2001 Marvel Treasury is a thing of beauty, with the oversized format (10 by 14 inches rather than than the more common 7.25 by 10.5) suiting Kirby’s preference for big panels and two-page splashes. Kirby borrows some compositions directly from the film, but he adds his own dynamic poses and granite faces. He gives a somewhat stately film a jolt of Kirby electricity.”
OMG, Azure Striker Gunvolt is the new Mega Man ZX ⊟
Inti Creates (Mega Man Zero/ZX) announced this beauty at BitSummit, and it’s coming out exclusively for eShop this summer in Japan. Considering there are English subtitles and an ESRB rating is pending, a North American release for Azure Striker Gunvolt seems like a sure bet.
Every once in a while I just have the urge to write 3,000-word essays about Metal Gear. Don’t ask why. It’s just a weird habit.
