There’s a reason I haven’t been writing posts. I’ve been working on a website called Pop Mirror.  I’ve been doing a lot of art for the site.  Pop Mirror’s not made yet but you can get a taste of it on its facebook page.  http://on.fb.me/i5Qqej Its fame and pop culture shown through pop art.

Like the facebook page to see cartoons of celebs like Charlie Sheen and to say other ones you want to see.

And Previews of comics like Snow that will be on the site. Snow is a modern retelling of Snow White.  In this version Snow’s got more attitude than the Disney version. She’s  trying to just get through high school, but being who she is, she is surrounded by fameballs and the jealous eye of her stepmother

Mirror, Mirror

I read another of Greg Maguire’s books, Mirror, Mirror which is an alternate telling of Sleeping Beauty.  It reminded me somewhat of the manga Ludwig Kakumei by Yuki Kaori in which the mangaka tells some twisted fairy tales.  I think fans of one may like the other.  Mirror, Mirror took place in Italy doing the time of Cesare so the wicked stepmother is his sister Lucrezia. The problem I had with the book was that it had too many details, I guess in an attempt to show the time period, about what was going on politically when it really had nothing to do with the story. I guess people who are into that time period may enjoy that, but it kinda just sounded like mumble jumble to me and didn’t bring anything to the story.  It’s still a fairly decent book, but not nearly as good as Wicked.
