Brand new writer hires notable artists for indie project called "Golem of Venice Beach"

The Hollywood Reporter announced a writer named Chanan Bezier who's prepared a crowdfunded graphic novel with at least a few notable artists doing the interior work:
Venice Beach is getting its time the sun in a graphic novel that is years in the making.

And it’s a graphic novel that has lined up a who’s who of artists, ranging from Michael Allred and Paul Pope to Jae Lee and Bill Sienkiewicz, and including Stephen R. Bissette, the artist of the Alan Moore-written Saga of Swamp Thing run in the 1980s, who is doing his first interior comic work in more than 20 years.

Chanan Beizer, a first-time comics author and former Venice Beach resident, spent the last four years developing The Golem of Venice Beach, self-financing the drawing and editing. He is finally taking it public via a Kickstarter campaign that officially launches next week, although a prelaunch page is now up.

The drive’s goal is to finance the publication of an ambitious 152-page epic story centered on the adventures of a 400-year-old Golem, spanning from 16th century Europe to World War II to modern-day Venice Beach, where the Golem has become entangled in a war between a gang and the police.
I'm amazed when leftists like Sienkiewicz are willing to work on projects like these, considering how unwilling he'd probably be to take a job with a right-winger, no matter how well he'd be paid. Also interesting is the employment of Lee, the guy who was unfairly attacked by Tom King as a supposed Comicsgate supporter. The guy writing this indie comic spotlighting the Golem may not be a Comicsgate supporter, but what if he was? Would King and other leftists like him turn against a Jewish man no matter his political standings if they knew how bad that could look from a PR perspective? Let's hope not, but anybody who's a realist knows it's not impossible.

The indie project spoken of here sounds intriguing with the literary history it's building on, and IMO, this is what guys like Lee should really be working on at this point, not the PC disasters Marvel/DC's doing nowadays. But at the same time, let's hope it's not building on political correctness, considering the disaster California's become over the past decade. That would only make this indie project a joke, and then you'd see the employment of leftist artists like Sienkiewicz in a different context as a result.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • 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.
