"Death Sentence" Is The Best British Graphic Novel In Years

http://ift.tt/1pp28jG

We asked writer Monty Nero to walk us through his must-read comic . Warning: strong language.

Titan Comics / BuzzFeed

Death Sentence follows Verity, Monty, and Weasel, three people infected with a new virus that grants them incredible powers – but which will kill them in six months.

Death Sentence follows Verity, Monty, and Weasel, three people infected with a new virus that grants them incredible powers – but which will kill them in six months.

Written by Monty Nero and drawn by Mike Dowling, it has a good claim on being the best British comic in a generation. We asked Nero to talk us through some panels from the book.

Titan Comics

"Death Sentence is a graphic novel about the state of the world today, reflecting adult concerns and themes," Nero says.

" Death Sentence is a graphic novel about the state of the world today, reflecting adult concerns and themes," Nero says.

"The reaction to the project has been incredible. We've been favourably compared to Watchmen about six times in different reviews. Obviously it's not as significant a work as that masterpiece, but it's good going for our first book.

"What I've always liked about comics is their underground pulp allure, and their capacity for profound insight as highbrow literature. Death Sentence aspires to be both."

Titan Books

"We approached the story from the characters' perspective, with the themes and plot first, and then rethought superpowers in a way that added something new to the core drama."

"We approached the story from the characters' perspective, with the themes and plot first, and then rethought superpowers in a way that added something new to the core drama."

"What we see here is Weasel’s admirable refusal to acquiesce to violence, and his private thoughts in the face of death. That gets to the core of his character.

"It's also the first glimpse of anything approaching superpowers. It was pretty late on that I settled on putting any kind of superpowered action in. But as I wrote the script I found they made fantastic visual metaphors for the kind of issues I wanted to write about."

Alejandro Alba: I don't understand this character. Is he the one who inspired the Wookie language?
Tazz Uppin: I thought Chewbacca got his name because he chewed really loudly. His face is so silky. I wonder what shampoo he uses.
AA: I had a substitute teacher who claimed he knew how to speak Wookie. My co-worker occasionally will do it too. They sound like pigeons.
TU: He looks like an old-timey, kinder, sweeter King Kong. I hear good things about Wookies.

Princess Leia

TU: Princess badass? Do those buns also double as headphones?
AA: Yeah, she totes hooked up with Luke who I think is her brother. People made a big deal out of it.

The Definitive Ranking Of "Firefly" Episodes

http://ift.tt/1pICq95

“No power in the ‘verse can stop me.”

"Safe"

"Safe"

The setting of "Safe" is a random, barely colonized planet in the 'verse, which doesn't do the episode any favors in terms of being interesting. The backwoods mindset of Outer Planet hicks is expounded upon, as are River's powers, but the predictable "which member of my crew do I save" plot isn't up to the series' powerful standard.

Best Moment: It's a tie between River's dance sequence and the unrealized hints that Shepard Book might be way more than he appears to be.

Mutant Enemy Productions / Via rebloggy.com

"Jaynestown"

"Jaynestown"

"Jaynestown" feels like a B-side from a really good album that would probably be a decent song had it not been released alongside a bunch of other amazing tracks. It's funny and tells us a little bit about Jayne, but the outlandish "mudder" society and the cartoonish villainy of the plantation owner are too cut-and-dry for a series with Firefly's complexity.

Best Moment: "The hero of Canton, the man we call Jaaaaaayne!"

Mutant Enemy Productions / Via whedonversegifs.tumblr.com

"War Stories"

"War Stories"

While "War Stories" gives the audience some much-needed insight into Zoe and Wash's relationship (and Zoe and Mal's relationship, and Wash and Mal's relationship...there are a lot of relationships on this ship), it feels like filler between better episodes that do more to advance the plot.

Best Moment: When River unleashes her River-ness on a troop of invaders and delivers one of the series' most iconic lines.

Mutant Enemy Productions / Via snarksquad.com

"Trash"

"Trash"

It's usually a good thing to get Christina Hendricks to guest star twice in one season, but this episode felt like a Saffron overdose. The crew had a few great moments in planning and executing a brilliant heist, but spending so much time on the backstory of a character who probably should have not shown up again until the hypothetical second season was gratuitous.

Best Moment: Naked Captain Mal in the middle of the desert.

Amazing New Solar Panels Are Completely Transparent

http://ift.tt/1qyRPZl

Just so we’re totally clear, this is a huge deal. (Get it?)

The Sun sends us enormous amounts of energy.

The Sun sends us enormous amounts of energy.

You've seen solar panels like this before. In simplest terms, they collect the sun's light and help convert it into usable electricity.

IPGGutenbergUKLtd/IPGGutenbergUKLtd

Researchers at Michigan State University have developed transparent panels that can go undetected over surfaces.

Researchers at Michigan State University have developed transparent panels that can go undetected over surfaces.

The new study isn't the first to delve into luminescent materials, but it is the first to yield a transparent panel with improved energy production.

Because it's see-through, the technology can be used without you even knowing that it's there, like on top of building windows or cellphones.

Yimu Zhao / Michigan State University / Via msutoday.msu.edu

The team developed organic molecules that absorb wavelengths of sunlight that aren't visible.

The team developed organic molecules that absorb wavelengths of sunlight that aren't visible.

Former efforts have typically used colored glass. "It makes for a very colorful environment, like working in a disco," researcher Richard Lunt told MSUToday. “Because the materials do not absorb or emit light in the visible spectrum, they look exceptionally transparent to the human eye."

G.L. Kohuth / Michigan State University / Via msutoday.msu.edu

While still in its early stages, the panels could potentially be made affordable to use industrially or, better yet, commercially.

While still in its early stages, the panels could potentially be made affordable to use industrially or, better yet, commercially.

The problem with solar energy is that harnessing the endless stream of light is expensive. On top of the actual system, which used to cost 10 times that of fossil fuels like coal, you need special permits and inspections, according to the Energy Department.

But with prices steadily dropping, and if continually improved, you might see this technology soon (or not, since it's transparent).

Eva Green Is The Queen Of Sexy-Scary

http://ift.tt/1tHrvws

How the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For actress walked away with the year’s most macho sequels.

Josh Brolin and Eva Green in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Dimension Films

Most of the thrill of the original Sin City is gone in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to their innovative 2005 graphic-novel adaptation, set in a stylized, digitally engineered world of black and white with splashes of color. The movie, which floundered at the box office when it debuted this past weekend, is just as intensely violent, lurid, and nihilistic as the first one, and this time, it's in 3D, which lends an added oomph to its sometimes beautiful compositions. But Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is also stupefyingly — 100-plus minutes of just the climax of a story, everything turned up to 11, the characters so interchangeably hard-boiled that it can take a while to realize Josh Brolin is actually playing the same character Clive Owen did in the previous film.

It's disappointing, except for the one thing Sin City: A Dame to Kill For does have that the first installment didn't: a scene-stealing Eva Green, who, as Ava Lord, burns a giant hole in the center of the screen. In a movie in which Jessica Alba humps a stage and Mickey Rourke plucks out someone's eyeball like he's picking a particularly stubborn daisy, it's not easy to be the center of attention, but Green easily dominates the gritty, gory affair. Her Ava is less femme fatale than dark deity, a goddess of self-destruction who men can't help but cower in front of.

And Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn't the first hyper-macho Frank Miller sequel this year that Green's walked away with — as Artemisia, the bloodthirsty villain in March's 300: Rise of an Empire, she totally bowled over the indistinguishable muscly male lead (Sullivan Stapleton, if you'd forgotten). Ever since her 2003 debut alongside Michael Pitt and Louis Garrel in Bernardo Bertolucci's racy The Dreamers and her 2006 stint as proto-Bond girl Vesper Lynd, Green's proven to be a little too much for Hollywood — too formidable for happily-ever-afters, too much presence to be a character actor, too beautiful to be ignored, and too...goth-y? But in 2014, Green's been carving out a distinctive career for herself as the scariest and most intimidating of sex symbols, and it's been awesome to watch.
