That scene is a start contrast to the splash page revealing the Mississippi prison where Lewis is sent after participating in the Freedom Rides, which highlights the desolation of the 21,000-acre prison grounds. Powell does particularly excellent work with splashes like this, using the full space of the page to deliver visuals with immense impact. One of the most hard-hitting sequences transitions from a vicious attack on the Freedom Riders to Aretha Franklin singing “My Country, ’Tis Of Thee” at President Obama’s inauguration, shifting from hectic multi-panel layouts to an inspiring two-page splash of Franklin belting in front of the U.S. Capitol. Some of the imagery can be a little on-the-nose—a brick smashes the face of a stained glass Jesus as it’s hurled into a church—but as certain images from the past few months have shown, reality doesn’t always equal nuance either. … [Read more...] about John Lewis’

And every year, Ferrari slowly comes to realize that its championship hopes are dying but won’t quite admit it’ll be another depressing year at Maranello. The team is always the last one to admit that it won’t be a formidable enough contender. And there are plenty of excuses lined up ready to go. We screwed up this time, but next time it’ll be different! We’d have beaten Mercedes if it weren’t for those meddling [pit stops/engine problems/weather/insert reason here]! … [Read more...] about How To Lose A Formula One Championship, As Told By Ferrari
We definitely have heard people talk about wanting matchmaking for raids, the thing that I'll say about matchmaking and raids is, that activity has a bunch of constraints and different goals that would make making matchmaking for it potentially jeopardize those goals. I think that people are craving different types of experiences. Giving people an opportunity to have different types of experiences in Destiny, of which I would say raiding encapsulates a number of different types of experiences, that's an opportunity for us to grow moving forward. … [Read more...] about Q&A: The Lead Designer Of
About 95% of what we heard about The Dark Knight Rises. Speaking of bizarre creative writing exercises, coming up with false Dark Knight Rises rumors became its own cottage industry in 2011. Some people went far, far beyond just guessing which villain Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be playing. The alpha and the omega of this has to be an entire fake screenplay that someone wrote, in which they cast Dr. Hugo Strange as the villain, showed Commissioner Gordon leading a taskforce to hunt down Batman, and threw in Deadshot for some reason. Recently, we saw some seriously demented ideas for what the movie's prologue would be, with the most insane story claiming it would begin right after the end of The Dark Knight and show Bane ambushing Batman, beating him to a pulp, and then breaking his back. Another depicted a young Bane and his training under a Ra's al Ghul, which was meant to mirror Bruce Wayne's childhood in Batman Begins, introduce a young Talia, and feature a split-second cameo by Liam … [Read more...] about The Rightest and Wrongest Spoilers of 2011!
You should also know that Donald Trump has repeatedly said that he’d like drug dealers to receive the death penalty. The Centers for Disease Control found that the rate of illicit drug use is the same for whites and blacks, while the Hamilton Project found that African Americans are incarcerated for drugs almost three times more often than their white counterparts. Studies show that black people receive sentences that are much harsher than whites who commit the same crimes. … [Read more...] about Trump Administration Reinstates Death Penalty, Schedules Five Executions
Sam Taylor-Johnson began her career as an experimental multimedia artist, and her early music videos and short films (credited to her birth name, Sam Taylor-Wood), like “Death Valley” from the X-rated omnibus project Destricted, are strikingly conceptual. She creates a few similarly memorable images here, depicting a key moment as heavily distorted by the view through a whisky glass and symbolizing Frey’s sense of being lost via a long-distance, seemingly random shot of a bunny crossing an empty road. But she’s adapted a book that was memorable less for its narrative (whatever the truth- … [Read more...] about Thirteen years after the scandal,
