Comic creators bibliography

Does anyone know of anywhere for looking up lists of all comics various creators have worked on. I try & collect Greg Capullo comics where he does interiors/covers/writes and can't seem to find a complete list of what he's worked on.

Thanks

In-Text Citations in Google Docs

I am looking for a more efficient way to do in-text citations in Google Docs. Currently, I am using EasyBib Bibliography Creator add-on, but, as far as I know, it only does the bibliography page, rather than assist with the in-text citations, as well as managing/keeping track of all citations, etc.

Suggestions?

Bibliography in APA style -- made one but teacher won't except it.

The bibliography

>Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act 1980 and 1985 amendments . (1985). > >NEW YORK v. UNITED STATES et al., No. 91–543. (The Supreme Court of the United States June 19, 1992). > >Gallup, ABC News, CBS News. (n.d.). Public Opinion Polling. > >Half Lives (n.d.). [Motion Picture]. > >Nazzaro, R. M. (2004). Low-Level Radioactive Waste: Future Waste Volumes and Disposal Options Are Uncertain. Washington: United States Government Accountability Office. > >Nuclear Age (n.d.). [Motion Picture].

So yeah. I used the automatic bibliography creator found in Word 2010 where you input the data and it creates a bibliography. (I trust a program more than my own abilities to make the bibliography). However, my teacher wouldn't except it, saying it wasn't in proper APA style. I did some further research on APA and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Can I get some help?

In 820, the Byzantine Emperor Leo V planned to execute his general Michael by chaining him to an ape and throwing them into a furnace. Besides how he came up with this strange idea, were outlandish execution methods like these common in the Byzantine Empire?

I recently read an article by Lars Brownworth, creator of the “12 Byzantine Rulers” podcast, on Leo V’s sentencing of his top general, Michael the Amorian. Essentially, on Christmas Eve of 820, the Byzantine Emperor Leo heard some rumors that Michael was plotting to assassinate him. Upon learning it was true, Leo sentenced him to death. But rather than a simple execution, Brownworth claims Leo wanted to tie Michael “to an ape and [hurl him] into the furnace that heated the imperial palace.”

The articles on Michael II and Leo V from Ancient History Encyclopedia likewise comply with Brownworth’s statement. But upon looking through my other Middle Byzantine history books- Byzantium: The Apogee, by J.J. Norwich, The Making of Byzantium, by Mark Whittow, and Byzantium: The Imperial Centuries, by Romilly Jenkins- they simply state that

Spider-Man Omnibus Wishlist

Hi guys! I thought I share my list of Spider-Man omnibuses that I would love to be made. The ones in italics are subject to change to even out the issue/page count across different volumes. I'm excluding the omnibus that has been made before and would like future volumes (ex: Classic Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man). Note: I may have missed some issues for some of the omnibuses as I only used Wikipedia and Comixology for reference to creators' bibliography.

Spectacular Spider-Man by JM DeMatteis Omnibus (46 issues)

  • Spectacular Spider-Man (1976) #-1, #131-132, 178-200, 241-254, Annual #13-14; Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #293-294, Web of Spider-Man (1985) #31-32

Dioscuri's second bond profile has caused plagiarism controversy on the JP side.

Supposedly, I wasn’t going to post the controversial topic or hype-backlash topic this month because I’m extremely busy and don’t have time to research for the other topic. That is until this certain controversial topic has been discussed in the Discord in the last five days by the time of this post.

In the last two weeks, there has been a flame war discussion about Disocuri’s profile between Pixiv Encyclopedia users, artists, TM fans, and FGO fans. People come up to me and tell me everything about this new controversial topic that makes JP fans found it how infuriating and disappointing. I've seen there are some fans who have a conflict of interest, some of them have no choice to accept the truth, and potentially they might separate the content from the creator.

The only thing that worries me the most, this controversy is not just damaging Dioscuri’s reputation and popularity, it’s everything related to TYPE-MOON. So I have decided to go ahead and write everything down before it wil

Another Academic Paper on The Eric Andre Show

The Eric Andre Show and Generation Z: The Intersection of Escapism and Simulation Theory

In the episode “Tatiana Ali” Eric André and Hannibal Buress eloquently sing, “Chiquita banana Chiquita banana Obama, Chiquita banana Chiquita banana Osh Kosh B’gosh. Chiquita banana Chiquita banana Obama, a simple summertime, s’ about a dime, of love” (The Eric Andre Show, 2012). This intelligible song perfectly encapsulates The Eric Andre Show’s particular brand of ridiculousness.

The Eric Andre Show stars Eric André and his co-host Hannibal Buress. Each episode is between 10 and 15 minutes long and usually begins with an announcer saying, "Ladies and gentlemen, it's The Eric Andre Show!" followed by a series of antics ranging from André destroying the entire set to him attacking members of his house band. To increase the level of nonsense, this destruction generally occurs while the band plays the show’s theme song. After this, André sits in the chair where his desk used to be and al

MAME 0.218

MAME 0.218

It’s time for MAME 0.218, the first MAME release of 2020! We’ve added a couple of very interesting alternate versions of systems this month. One is a location test version of NMK’s GunNail, with different stage order, wider player shot patterns, a larger player hitbox, and lots of other differences from the final release. The other is The Last Apostle Puppetshow, an incredibly rare export version of Home Data’s Reikai Doushi. Also significant is a newer version Valadon Automation’s Super Bagman. There’s been enough progress made on Konami’s medal games for a number of them to be considered working, including Buttobi Striker, Dam Dam Boy, Korokoro Pensuke, Shuriken Boy and Yu-Gi-Oh Monster Capsule. Don’t expect too much in terms of gameplay though — they’re essentially gambling games for children.

9 “Blank Check” Anime Directors (that aren’t Miyazaki)

Sorry for the length! You can read the whole thing if you so wish, but a cursory scan over the names- and the work associated with them- should give you the general picture.

This is not a “Blank Check should cover these directors” post! I mean, it’d be cool if they did (and they’ve suggested a couple of them are on the longlist), but I’ll be surprised if, at the end of the show’s run, they’ll have covered 10 anime directors. Which is totally ok! It’s not like I’m sad about it or anything. (sniffle)

No, this is a post for your own personal movie-watching enjoyment! A lot of Blankies seem mostly unfamiliar with anime, which isn’t that surprising- it’s definitely considered a niche in the west. A lot of Blankies also seemed to love the works of Miyazaki after watching them for the first time, which is *also* unsurprising.

If you fall into both of those categories, this post may be for you? Basically it’s a list of 10 anime directors who easily fall into the categories of a Blank

Upon popular demand, I am sharing my last univeristy paper connecting Steins;Gate to Neo-Confucianism (Warning: the ending was rushed because I pulled an all nighter writing it)

Neo-Confucianism with a hint of Time Travel

What would a Neo-Confucian do? When it comes to trying to understand a philosophy or any mode of thought, a common practice is to ask oneself on how a practitioner of say philosophy would react to a theoretical situation. In his work Sagehood, author Stephen C. Angle used multiple theoretical scenario’s penned by different thinkers in order to better define the philosophy of Neo-Confucian thought. However, all of these scenario’s have been more or less constructed by academics (mostly philosophers) for the engagement with other academics over the specifics of a particular philosophy, such as Michael Slote’s thought experiment on how a parent should divide their attention between two children who have different needs.[1] What I hope to do is introduce an example from popular culture, specifically the ethical conundrum baked into the science-fiction thriller anime Steins;Gate. This series served as an example of latent Neo-Confucian

Cosmic Armor Superman and the Monitors are cool because of their lore, not because of their power

I think one thing most users here on CharacterRant can agree is completely fucking stupid are the people who prioritize feats and power over storytelling. And in few places is that more fucking obnoxious than with Grant Morrison's Monitor lore.

For those who don't know what the Monitors and Cosmic Armor Superman are, I made a rant about it some time ago that I think explains it pretty well. For those who don't feel like reading it, here's a brief outline:

Some Things I'm Tired of Seeing

One thing I see a lot on the Discord is "OMG there's a bathroom!" or "OMG red text!" We really need to stop hyperfocusing on these details. Bathrooms existed in the 20th century (and even earlier than that, believe it or not), and there are Japanese legends about ghosts that haunt bathrooms, so a horror anime having a bathroom scene is kind of tropey. Hell it's tropey in modern western horror. There being a bathroom is not significant in any way. I also see a lot of the same 80's horror anime brought up simply because it's 80s, and has characters with a similar style described. Ultimately you're gonna find tons of examples of that, as it was specifically described as "generic". So, unless we have characters that match the description (beyond 80s style and far apart eyes), then ultimately it's not significant. Red text also means nothing, as it's a trope of 80's Japanese horror in general. We need to remember that it's not about the red text, or the bathroom; it's about what goes on *af

Originally posted in r/batman, but I was curious as to how this community might receive it:

Yeah, I'm probably gonna get downvoted into oblivion for this. And I don't care, frankly. I'd like to get this off my chest. But before I do, let's get a couple of cliches out of the way:

  • "Then don't go see it." - I have no intention of seeing it. As a Batman fan for ~26 years, I still get to weigh in on its existence. The 'who-knows-how-much' money I've spent on Batman in that timespan grants me that vote in this capitalist society. And when the very concept of something is enough to know that it's wrong, I don't have to see it to have a problem with its existence. Maybe it's a very well-made, well-acted film. I have no idea and can't speak to if that is or isn't the case. But that's not what this is about.

Are there any creators who you wish had done more stuff?

Recently I've been rereading the works of Jhonen Vasquez, the creator of Invader Zim. Before he worked on that show, he had created the series "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac" and "Squee". I really like most of his work outside of Zim. They're not only funny and super violent, they discuss a lot of interesting ideas and the artwork is pretty cool and has a lot of tiny details you might not notice on the first read. But he hasn't done that many comics ever since Zim ended and nothing he's done has been as ambitious as "Johnny" was. I don't blame him for focusing on different creative endeavors, but I still would've liked to have seen more series from him over the years. The issues that he's done for the Invader Zim comic are pretty funny, so he hasn't lost his talent over the years.

Major Mistakes of Episode 5

Mostly reliant on INSAG-7, what should be the top source of information on how and why Chernobyl occurred without good reason for information therein to be superseded.

>Dyatlov broke every rule we have.

This is understandable. Such a reckless and stupid narrative has to be against the rules. Or so the Soviets would like you to think. Pages 10-11 of INSAG-7:

Steam game about raping women will test Valve’s hands-off approach - polygon

Is it against the rules?

>Midway through last year, Valve made headlines after announcing that it would allow anything on its storefront that was not illegal or “straight up trolling.” Such a vague edict might explain why, as of this writing, there’s a visual novel that promises to let you play as a sociopath that can violate women during a zombie apocalypse. It’s literally called Rape Day.
>
>The game, which is not out yet, is marked as an “adult only” title — which means that you can’t see it unless you’re logged in to Steam, and have opted to see games of that nature in your feed. The game’s description, which lists “evil choices” as a feature, says that it will let players “verbally harass, kill, and rape women as you choose to progress the story.” *Rape Da

"Structural Dissociation Model" and "DID-lite" (for lack of a better term)

Vivi (Host): Dear Friends,

I recently visited another subreddit called /r/cptsd where childhood trauma is discussed extensively. It was there that I came across a recommendation for a book called "Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors", by Janina Fisher. This was published in March, 2017, so it includes a lot of the newest psychology material.

I know that there are innumerable traumatized folks on this forum, and this pertains very much to plurality, so I'd like to share here.

Fisher explains how human beings respond to trauma in terms of something called the "Structural Dissociation Model". This is a great oversimplification, but the basic premise is this: Human beings have a set of responses they use to respond to danger. Some of these include fight, flight, freeze, submit, cry for help, and so on.

Fisher suggests that when a person is repeatedly traumatized, they tend to experience a fracturing of their personality where they experience a separation between their

Extra History, Süleyman Episode II: The Arrogance Awakens

For the people who didn't see the original

Where do I even begin?

The guy in charge of Extra History (James) decided to personally respond to my criticisms, and revealed some unfortunate things about his approach to the series in the process. The context is that he is arguing with me over the idea that the execution of Süleyman's son Mustafa led to the decline of the Ottoman Empire. Nearly all modern historians agree that the "Decline of the Ottoman Empire" as such was a myth (on this see the bottom of this post), but this hasn't stopped him from trying to defend the idea on the basis of his... unique perspective on how history should be studied.

70 Books in 2018 - Here's my recommendations

This was my third year of doing the 52 book challenge. The past couple of years I didn't get to 52, but I finally hit 52 around October of 2018. I decided to extended it out and eventually read or listened to 70 books.

My thoughts:

  1. This was an awesome way to gain an appreciation for books. Before first trying the challenge in 2016, I read some, but maybe 5 or max 10 books a year. Doing this challenge has given me more appreciation for the written word and reading is now a hobby, rather then something I would just occasionally do. I'm tackling The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (it's Epic and worth the effort) which I would never have wanted to do or known about. There is just something that you can get from the long form written word that you can't get from blog posts, or short form content.
  2. I'm not going to do it again - Most of my free time was spent reading or listening to audio books during drives/hikes. It became like work for some parts of it which in general isn

A lengthy analysis of Colonial Gothic Third Edition (Rulebook only, no supplements)

The Preamble: For those who aren't aware, Colonial Gothic is a supernatural horror game set during the American War of Independence, known to my fellow Americans as the Revolutionary War. In the following paragraphs, I will be talking about as much of this book as possible, starting with the physical structure, layout, and artwork of the book (all things very important to me), followed by the game system and mechanics, and finally discussing the setting. Be warned: I HAVE NOT ACTUALLY PLAYED THIS YET. If that disqualifies me from discussing it in your eyes, you have been forewarned. For a bit of background, my main experience with RPGs comes from crunchy d20 games and World of Darkness, but I have some experience with Fate and GURPS, and I run about 12 games per week now on average. Now then.

Article. I.

Structure: The book is softcover, very well bound together. It is more or less 240 pages long. Taller than most paperbacks but shorter than standard hardcover rulebooks. T

The History of Early Biblical Interpretation — as a Weapon (and a Shield)

Let's make a list: SF novels available legally, free, online.

First, thanks! to everyone who has contributed so far. I have a bunch of reading material for the next few weeks now, which is particularly welcome given how broke I am.

So, this is something I've been meaning to compile for my own sake for a while, and figured that Reddit would be the perfect place to publish it and get recommendations from other people.

Comment with title, author, link (preferably spelled out to make it easier for me to copy/paste), and a short description of the novel, and I'll add it. Prefer SF over F, but hard or soft is fine, and I'll include fantasy if there is a compelling reason to do so. I'm perfectly happy exerting my own editorial control of what I place on the list, but the comments are available for all to see (and upvotes/compelling arguments will win me over on most stuff).

Science fiction based on the Philosophy of Time

I am currently forming a database of time travel science fiction that has taken influence specifically from the Philosophy of Time.

These can be of any form (novel/comic/film/episode/etc.) and can be from any genre technically speaking so long as it concerns itself with time travel (i.e. a Family Guy episode about time travel [although I have viewed these and they lack sufficient philosophical merit to be included in my database).

I am looking especially for indications that the author has consulted the philosophy of time to solve narrative/logical issues in the plot. If there are any autobiographies where creators mention this sort of further reading, I would be very interested to read these as well.

A lot of pop science fiction I have had to disregard in virtue of its lacking philosophical merit and, for many philosophically interesting pieces, the creators have displayed no specific reference to this Philosophy of Time.

Thought you might appreciate my essay on The Witness for my college games criticism and theory course

edit: heres a imgur link https://imgur.com/a/xqhAk

At its core, The Witness is a superb and elaborate puzzle game full of mystery and a thin, yet interesting narrative. However, it is much more than that. The Witness is also a meditation on knowledge. It is a lecture on discovery and how new information can change the way we look at the world (Roberts, 2016). In this essay, I will examine how The Witness deals with these ideas of knowledge acquisition and objective truth. Specifically, I will analyze the gameplay elements and determine how well they follow the ideas outlined by Ernst von Glasersfeld in his essay “Aspects of Radical Constructivism”. I will also discuss how the narrative deals with the same ideas outlined in the essay. Radical constructivism is, “a theory of active knowing, not a conventional epistemology that treats knowledge as an embodiment of Truth that reflects the world ‘in itself’, independent of the knower” (Glasersfeld, 1996).

The Anexus Infinatum, Part 2: Enchantment Analysis (you asked for it!)

Okay. So, my previous post about The Anaxus Infinatum: Countless Creative Curses for the Crafty Conjurer to the Curious Commoner got a much stronger response than I was expecting! It’s now the most-viewed article on this site, and I’ve gotten tons of emails (and some more “creative” forms of communication) asking me to do a follow-up. So here it is, by popular demand:

The Anexus Infinatum

It’s full of some of the lamest spells I’ve ever come across, presented in an ugly, clunky format. However, hidden in the pages is a spell-generation algorithm, accessed simply by flipping through to page twenty-five. The “spells” all work, but none of them are worth performing because they are all either functionless, or their functions are directionless and/or dangerous.

Free Septuagint Resources

It occurred to me that people might not be aware of the various grammars that exist and are freely available that are pertinent to the Septuagint. First you have your dedicated Septuagint grammars. There is Thackeray, which was posted in this sub a short time ago. To this you could add Helbing (although he writes in German). There is also Conybeare and Stock, which is really just an introduction to the Septuagint reader. It is particularly important because, although limited in scope, it is the only Septuagint grammar to deal with syntax. Then you have the Grammar on the Greek papyri by Mayser, which comes in several volumes. It's in German which might exclude it from use but it has heaps of information on syntax. So while it does not deal with the Septuagint specifically it's definitely worthwhile. Then, you have your NT grammars. People might be familiar with modern grammars, but there are a number of older grammars that are now free. Funk, though basic, can be a good quick reference

These places came to mind as needing extensive exploration, and I ask of you, Dearest Redditor, to help me find some hidden gems:

All kinds of people from the entire history of India, Ottoman Empire, Bulgaria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Nepal, Tibet, Cambodia, Japan, China, Korea, Mongolia, Russia, Morocco, South Africa, Vikings, Ancient Greece and Rome, the past millenium throughout Europe, study rooms depicted in illuminated manuscripts associated with wars, religious ceremonies, royalty, monasteries, and the occult. These may be accessible in English, but I'm sure that a huge number of leads can only be found in their respective native languages, especially when searching blogs and discussion forums.

A list of authors I'd like to see study rooms of are all 52 authors from Mortimer Adler's Great Books of the Western World. Additional authors can be found in the extended bibliography of Adler's Syntopticon. The same can be done for Ridpath's Library o

Contributor Spotlight #6 - Rick Veitch

Please comment below with your thoughts on their work, add to the bibliography, or share any stories you may have.


Rick Veitch

For over 30 years, Rick Veitch has had a career in comic books. His work has appeared in Swamp Thing, Miracleman, Cerberus and many more. Rick has also been an advocate of independent and self publishing, having helped create the site Comicon.com as a portal for creators.

In 1989, Rick's brought his talents to the TMNT as a writer and an artist. Mirage published a 3 part story in issues #24-26. And in 1990, issue #30 was published with the story Sky Highway. There was also a brief flashback page in issue #28 that he'd contributed as well. A couple years later, Rick's work was featured in the Plastron Cafe #1-4 with a 6 part story about Casey Jones titled North by Downeast. The last two parts of this story were published in full and in c

[Koyama Press Month] Steve Wolfhard - Turtie Needs Work

Steve Wolfhard is an Ontario-based cartoonist who's main works include Cat Rackham, Turtie Needs Work, and Zombie Chasers. Like many of the aforementioned artist, he also works on Adventure Time as a writer/storyboard artist (that show is pulling all of the talent). His website has a bunch of his comics to read for free there, so feel free to check those out and discuss them here (or not). Wolfhard's works are sometimes morbid, youthful, or sad, but they're always humorous in their own way. If you can find a physical copy of anything he's created, don't hesitate to purchase it because they're hard to come by.

If you need a good laugh, check out his tumblr page where he posts funny illustrations, comics and news about his Adventure Time work.

If you'd like to purchase his works, you may have to do a bit of digging. I couldn't find anything on Amazon except for his [Zombie Chasers](http://www.amazon.com/Zombie-Cha

Questions Answers
What did you think of Nolan's version of Bane? He did a great job translating Bane from the comics. It was as good as I could have expected given that it's HIS vision of Batman.
Better than Schumakers vision eh? Dear God, yes!

[What about the Arkham video game's version of bane? And for a more open ended question besides Nolan's version which Link to en.wikipedia.org version is your most and least favorite?](http://www.reddit.com/r/comicbooks/comments/12ecm0/i

Practicing SR since July 2017; finally conquered Nocturnal Emissions for 3 Whole Months using Subliminals

2 accounts got shadowbanned for uploading this post. Spam filter kept on removing it on r/Semenretention. Messaged the moderators for help, but they didn't care. Takes less than 3 minutes to approve a post from the spam folder. No idea if they read this post.

First time making a Reddit post.

Terminology:

Wet dream/WD – sexual dream causing semen emission while sleeping

Nocturnal Emission/NE – semen emission occurring while sleeping even without dreaming

Semen-retention/SR streak – avoiding porn, masturbation, and ejaculation whether conscious or unconscious

Nofap Hardmode – avoiding porn, masturbation, and conscious ejaculation. Unconscious ejaculation/WD is considered fine.

As the title suggests, my current streak started in the middle of June 2017. Haven’t watched any porn or masturbated in 3 years. Experienced almost all the benefits such as massive attraction (men, women, children), an aura/energy surrounding me, enhanced charisma, less need for sleep, insane levels of e

MAME 0.218

MAME 0.218

It’s time for MAME 0.218, the first MAME release of 2020! We’ve added a couple of very interesting alternate versions of systems this month. One is a location test version of NMK’s GunNail, with different stage order, wider player shot patterns, a larger player hitbox, and lots of other differences from the final release. The other is The Last Apostle Puppetshow, an incredibly rare export version of Home Data’s Reikai Doushi. Also significant is a newer version Valadon Automation’s Super Bagman. There’s been enough progress made on Konami’s medal games for a number of them to be considered working, including Buttobi Striker, Dam Dam Boy, Korokoro Pensuke, Shuriken Boy and Yu-Gi-Oh Monster Capsule. Don’t expect too much in terms of gameplay though — they’re essentially gambling games for children.

There are several major computer emulation advances in this release, in completely different areas. Possibly most exciting is the abilit

Major Mistakes of Episode 5

I posted this thread on ChernobylTV where things are a little bit different. While there are people interested in what actually happened at Chernobyl it is no accident this was the most upvoted content of everything:

>Because you're a condescending and rude fun sucker who goes around and makes annoying posts. Reading INSAG-7 doesn't make you the galaxy-brained queen of reactor 4, my dude.
>
>*FART NOISE* WELLLL INSAG-7 ACHTUAHULY STATES *SHIT SOUNDS*

I kid you not. For a few hours the thread also magically disappeared from the lists of threads and I had to make another one asking what was up with that. There appears to be a strong counter-reading culture.

This post is a distillation of points some people even in this sub are unaware of. It's faster moving than usual, which should be helpful.

###The Kybalion
An occult classic Since its first publication in 1908, The Kybalion, Hermetic Philosophy by Three Initiates, has been in constant demand by students and investigators of the Secret Doctrines. It is a modern addition to the body of work devoted to Hermes Trismegistus, an icon of ancient teachings that reveal the path to self transformation. In this revised edition, we have corrected many editorial issues inherent within the original text, creating a clearer presentation of the book's message: The Seven Hermetic Principles, or axioms:

• Principle of Mentalism
• Principle of Correspondence
• Principle of Vibration
• Principle of Polarity
• Principle of Rhythm
• Principle of Cause and Effect
• Principle of Gender

These principles complement other Hermetic teachings and provide a foundation for your own spiritual awakening. As the book states, "The lips of wi
