Growing Up

Being one of the oldest continuing storytelling mediums, comic book superheroes are in a weird place. Once, old fans cycled out as new fans cycled in. There was an assumption, no longer true, that most comic book readers had a five year attention span toward the medium, and that this was natural and logical. The medium had a tendency toward repetition. Some smaller publishers even managed to survive off of a very small catalogue of content, simply reprinting the same cycle of old stuff as newer audiences came on board.

Shared Universes and Restrictions in Storytelling

Shared Universes are fun. As a long-time comic book superhero fan, I am familiar with the convention of a universe of characters, all having their own adventures, both individually and in groups. And there’s something neat about seeing our favorite characters meet, which is probably why so much fanfiction has been created in that genre. And just plain ol’ traditional fiction as well. It’s probably easier to list the public domain characters that haven’t met Dracula or Sherlock Holmes at this point than all the ones that have.

Drama with a Capital D

Let’s talk about DRAMA. Or MATURITY. Or DEPTH. Or whatever you want to call it. Let’s talk about in storytelling specifically because that’s my job.

As you’d no doubt expect from me if you read this blog with any regularity, I have a different definition of Drama and Maturity (both capitalized) than a lot of people. I’ve already admitted I’m not a fan of downer endings, and I don’t think that being Sad or Dull equals Intelligence or Sophistication.

Lot of capitalization going on there, but I’m talking about big concepts here. Concepts nobody really quite agrees on.
