More after the jump
As usual, the club provided invaluable insight into this classic Marvel tale. Of course there were presentations. Mine went on far too long as I traced (in my own warped way) the history of the character, publication and went through Caps various side-kicks, romances and compared Golden age Bucky to Brubaker’s revamp.
But, by far, the most interesting discussion was the analysis done by Janine Frederick (an up and coming creator and Zuda finalist) who analyzed how the art in the book hearkened back to 1950’s soldier sketches. And the effective use of color to convey emotion. Very impressive things that I completely missed when I read the book. Other discussions included how what death means in comics, Brubaker’s background and the pacing of the story.
For those that are curious, my powerpoint appears below.
I put link if you wanted to buy any of the books.
