Link roundup

1. Neville Page worked on Green Lantern, too? I wish I liked his designs more. He seems to be involved in so many movies I'm interested in.

2. Relatedly, in light of the horrendous Green Lantern reviews, it's a little weird to see new articles in which Geoff Johns boasts of his important role in the movie's development and role developong a possible Flash movie. Also, turns out he owns my local comic shop.

UPDATE: Mark Millar calls "Green Lantern the worst superhero movie ever made."

3. Jim Shooter details the origin of ROM: Space Knight (ROM stands for "Read-Only Memory"). Also, he posted a portrait of himself drawn by Bill Sienkiewicz.

  1. I think the main reason why "Super 8" lost me at its climax was because the alien creature was designed by Neville Page. Its face/head was okay, considering it was to be seen in full close-up, but its multi-limbed body was a mess. I wonder if J.J. Abrams or Neville Page have explained why the alien creature is designed the way it is. I actually liked Page's Cloverfield monster, but didn't care much for the snow monster from Abrams' "Star Trek". I'm not sure what he did for "Avatar" but I'm sure James Cameron has major input when designing anything for his movies. Free reign for Neville Page... well, hm, what can I say?
