Fire in the Mind

Scott Brown‘s Wired piece about The Social Network backstory is catchy and well-written, etc., but the real grabber is the art — i.e., the illustrations by Martin Ansin. (Thanks to Awards Daily‘s Sasha Stone for the tip.)

I was chuckling yesterday about that “Mark Zuckerberg: Creator of Facebook” comic book, but if the illustrations in this Bluewater Productions comic are as good as Ansin’s, (and if the writing was as punchy as it should be), I think I’d buy it.

  1. From the drawings, I see facebook was created by a bunch of guys with jew fros in hoodies.

I went in there to find Ghost World a year ago, and man, I felt like this weird superhero shit might be contagious somehow. That was when I really knew I couldn’t stand superheroes anymore. Not the costumes, not the nicknames, not the absurdly convoluted mythology, not the lingo. And I saw those Hulk and Captain America action figures, as if for the first time. This, I thought. This is crap, and I’m done with it.

  5. The third image makes me want to go back in time to 1992 and fill out an application to Harvard. Not that I’d have gotten into those parties, but a time traveler can dream!
