In this episode: Tribble trouble, more "Twin Peaks," and creating for "everyone."
STAR TREK INTO TRIBBLES!
Artist Josh Kenfield examines one of the frustrating bits of nonsensical nonsense in the enjoyable but logically-challenged "Star Trek Into Darkness" in this great cartoon!
MAIRZY DOATS AND DOZY DOATS...
David Lynch and Ray Wise decided to tease Earth by off-handedly discussing a return to "Twin Peaks" while at the Orange County Museum of Modern Arts’ annual “Art of Dining” gala. Lynch told Wise:
Well, Ray, you know, the town is still there. And I suppose it’s possible that we could revisit it. Of course, you’re already dead (…) but we could maybe work around that.
Not cool, Dave. Don't you know how the Internet works?
Dan Sinker wrote a fantastic reaction to a quote from Dan DiDio in this piece about Vertigo's Karen Berger from the NY Times. In regard to creating for niche audience, like Vertigo fans, DiDio said:
We have to shoot for the stars with whatever we’re doing. Because what we’re trying to do is reach the biggest audience and be as successful as possible.
To which Sinker responded:
When you begin with “Everyone” you’re just stuck: How do you make any honest decisions? How do you solve any real problems? You don’t. You start to invent people and you start to invent their problems and it’s amazing because those people and those problems line up almost exactly with what you’re building and how you’re thinking about it—imagine that. Lying to yourself is amazing for productivity.

The amazing Richard Sala drew one of the best Marvel baddies!
KNEEL BEFORE NARRATIVE!
David Goyer explained why he and Snyder went with Zod as the "Man of Steel" villain:
When you see what the whole story is, nothing else would have even made sense, just like in the same way that nothing else would've made sense other than Bane in ['Dark Knight Rises']
BARRY ZUCKERKORN VS. SPIDER-MAN?
