Papercuts magazine interviews Graham Nolan

Papercuts interviewed the artist who worked with Chuck Dixon on some of the Bat-tales in the 90s and co-created Bane. Towards the end, Nolan says something interesting that today's social justice offerings may have succumbed to:
M: One of the reasons why I enjoyed Bane: Conquest so much is the quick pacing; fists are flying from the beginning, and it doesn't slow down. How would you describe the experience of collaborating with Dixon on Bane again?

G: We both love the same kind of comics. We aren’t interested in reading comics with 20 pages of people standing around talking. Get to the action and move the story along. We are both at the top of our game right now and while working on Bane again recalls great memories, we are focused on moving him forward while at the same time returning him to the intelligent beast that he was.
Indeed, that was a problem with some of the Marvel products like House of M by Brian Bendis, and even at least a few of the SJW-pandering books like the Muslim Ms. Marvel and Iceman-as-gay tales suffered from it. Talk-talk-talk and hardly any action, unless it's crafted to suit the writers' politicized beliefs. Character drama and conversations can always be a good thing if done right and in good taste, yet Marvel's shown none of that talent as they succumb to their SJW agenda. It's good Nolan's alluded to this recent problem, and let's not think even DC hasn't suffered from it too in some way or other.

The latest issue of the brunette teen fan-girl Ms Marvel had no fight scenes and only a hint of a future super-villain. Not sure if that is a bug or a design feature; the book aims at a Buffy or Twilight type YA audience, not a WWF audience. The cast is large enough and well-characterized enough to support a character-driven story.

Bendis' strength is dialogue; even when his plots have holes in them, his characters ring true. It makes sense for his stories to play to his strengths.

#Anonymous: You call the drivel that Bendis types out "dialogue"?!

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
