Ivan Brandon to launch Offset Comics

Many folks have linked to this excellent piece by writer Ivan Brandon comparing the movies based on comics to the comics themselves…and finding the imagination lacking:

Big as these movies we're seeing this summer are, (and they’re gigantic): they aren’t big enough. It’s a world of limits: you can see the confines of the sound stage. The actors fall and fly with as much implied abandon as the safety guidelines allow. The magic doomsday gadget rips a hole in the ceiling and the universe rains through, just exactly the size of the hundreds of thousands of hours and dollars that built it. And by movie standards it’s a full-scale invasion. But by the standards of the comic books these characters have lived through for decades, it’s a tiny molded miniature version of its inspiration. A playset, perfect and contained.


But if you go to the end, you’ll see a teaser for a new project called Offset Comics. So far it’s only been teased on Twitter, and with a couple of piece of art. Snooping around, you’ll find that Chuck BB is involved. Call that a promising start.

Is Offset another digital imprint like Monkeybrain and Thrillbent? More to come…
