Head over to Comic Book Resources to read an article where I talk about the Story of Electronomicon , Last Call and other art related stuff. It is pretty interesting trust me. There's art too.
"Do you think comics can change the world?
Yes, "Superman" and his heritage changed the world. Frank Miller's "300" did permanent damage to Greece. Did you know about that? It's a great comic book with great art, which I owned two copies of each issue -- one to read, one to keep. But "300" woke the insane Greek/white pride in the hearts of Greeks. I am talking about the movie, of course, because morons can barely read. I can surely say that "300" permanently changed our Greek modern society for the worse. There are so many Greek pride/"300"/Leonidas tattoos that if you get one there is a joke about it: At the beach it will be you and 300 Spartans."
I spend time thinking about how death will be in the future; will it be more exploited like in the Victorian times, and boom of séances and mysticism? Dial-a-dead? Holographic memories of loved ones gone? The more sci-fi notion of uploading a cemetery where you can visit anyone? In the "Electronomicon" world such things exist, you can literally visit Hades, it's like a huge game full of NPCs -- seems full, but it is desolate, sad and dead. Now if something boils and toils inside those machine coffins, it's another story.
My initial idea was of the earth as a black, unnatural, dead planet going through the motions of a headless chicken that runs around.
