It’s nice to see Spider-Man visible and ‘solid’ again. Hopefully, we see him stay that way in the next Infinity War movie!

These Star-Studded Adaptations Took Home Major Awards at the Golden Globes

feel like I can recall previous Golden Globes Award ceremonies have had more book to movie and TV adaptations. Shows like Game of Thrones and The Handmaid’s Tale sparked excitement amongst its followers and even the viewers of the award show. Books took over last year!

 

This year on Sunday there was plenty of anticipation with so many great movies like A Star Is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody to name a few. However, the list of adaptations was small this year, but they still managed to take home some serious titles. Check out these winners!

 

Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama
Glenn Close (The Wife). Based on the novel of the same name by Meg Wolitzer.

 

Best Animated Film
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Based on the Spider-Man comic book series.

 

Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
Patricia Clarkson (Sharp Objects). Based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn.

 

The Wife had hundreds of eyes on it thanks to the elegant and timeless Glenn Close. Her moving, inspiring, and tear-jerking speech amped up the win even more. We wanted there to be more winning adaptations, but this year turned out to be just as inspirational as the last.

Steve Ditko alongside his most famous character

Neil Gaiman and Other Pop Culture Luminaries Pay Tribute to Spider Man Creator Steve Ditko

A who’s-who of pop culture creators have shared their memories and recollections of famed comics artist and writer Steve Ditko, who has passed away aged ninety. Among them is celebrated author Neil Gaiman. A comic book writer himself, Neil Gaiman spoke with The Washington Post‘s Comic Riffs about Ditko’s many influential contributions to the world of comics. “He drew things his own way. And he saw things his own way. I think we were so lucky to have him,” said Gaiman.

 

 

According to Publisher’s Weekly, much of Ditko’s art in the early issues of Spider-Man was highly innovative for its era. His drawings broke new ground by truly capturing the urban atmosphere of New York City, as well as realistic psychological and physical depictions on the page.

 

 

His early contribution’s to Spider-Man aside, much of Ditko’s work was weird or existed on the fringe. “What Steve brought was grandeur and a view to other dimensions,” said Gaiman regarding Ditko’s work on Doctor Strange books. Ditko was the creative spark behind a lineup of particularly quirky characters including the likes of Shade, the Question, and the Objectivism inspired Mr. A. 

 

 

Although much of his work reverberated with many readers and many of his characters cherished by generations of fans and other creators, unlike his colleague Stan Lee, Ditko shied away from the spotlight. Very much a reclusive figure, he was called the “the J.D. Salinger of comics.” Living in the same Manhattan apartment for many decades, Ditko refused most public appearances and interviews.

 

 

 

“I just remember him as so very, very gracious and at the same time so very private,” said Gaiman.
