The Network is an Order of brilliant Friends who favor technology and subterfuge to get an edge on their opponents. With no discernable chain of command, it’s difficult to determine the size and reach of The Network but it is believed to be far bigger than the other Orders, with anonymous membership in the thousands.

Therapy Between the Lines - Comics and the Mental State

Written by O'Brian Gunn

A few panels from All-Star Superman (2006) #10 - by Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely.

Sketches in Trauma: Restructuring the Mind Through Comics Creation

Mental health issues and trauma have started to become part of public discussion, something we can talk about openly both in real life and online without fear (mostly) of being seen as irreparably broken, shattered, hollowed out, or cast aside. Taking this one step further, comics and graphic novels have started to include characters and narratives that touch on trauma and mental health, which has done wonders for starting a discussion and helping readers and creators alike come to grips with facets of their own lives that have been impacted by trauma and mental health issues. Reading such narratives is one thing, but to create them from deeply personal experience, and do so in a way that’s wholly authentic, and share them with others is an act of courage. And it can be quite therapeutic, too.

Examples of the Graphic Memoir.

The Graphic Memoir

David Small’s Stitches, Tom Hart’s Rosalie Lightning, Miriam Katin’s We Are on Our Own, and Shigeru Mizuki’s Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths. These are a few examples of graphic memoirs, personal stories brave creators were willing to share with both friends and strangers alike. In Stitches, Small recounts the loss of a vocal cord and how his radiologist father gave him cancer. Hart shares his experience of losing his young daughter, and Katin revisits her escape from the Nazi invasion of Budapest after she and her mother faked their deaths. Rather than keep these mental turmoils to themselves in private, the creators instead chose to not only root them up, but do so through a public forum.

Batman is ready to listen.

Graphic Medicine

Comics artist, physician and writer, Dr. Ian Williams is the creator of Graphic Medicine, a movement that explores utilizing sequential art to revisit trauma with the intent of allowing creators to reframe troubling experiences. While one can visit a therapist to verbally discuss and attempt to make sense of sources of mental anguish, using words may not have the same effect or catharsis as using images and a narrative structure. So, in a way, comic book artists and writers able to see their words woven into images can provide themselves with a source of therapy.

Digging a bit deeper into this concept, narrative therapy is focused on the stories surrounding a mental health issue. Such stories are constructed from cultural, familial and social influences. Narrative therapy acts as a catalyst to externalize something that’s been internalized. Over time, a person can have difficulty differentiating him or herself from trauma/mental illness or a mental health issue. While an individual may identify as being anxious or depressed, narrative therapy is a way to separate the Self from the Experience. Creating comics is a way to unpack the mental suitcase, which can help people realize they’ve been “carrying around another’s luggage” by mistake, claiming it as their own.

Which Came First?

Her smile seems genuine…

It’s common for creative individuals to be perceived as emotionally and psychologically sensitive, the old “tortured artist” trope, which can make creative types particularly vulnerable to mental illness and trauma. That said, you also have to consider that those with mental illness are often attracted to art and literature. Art therapy is a common treatment for those with mental illness. So, which came first: Art, or mental illness?

Either way, there’s no denying the emotional and psychological power of art. Even if you aren’t going through or trying to suss out a recent or deep-rooted tragedy, you can use art to plunge deeper into your current state of mind. Humans are multifaceted beings. As such, individual emotions can become twisted and chained together in a miasma that can only be properly (or improperly) sorted out by sitting with whatever we’re feeling and drawing, writing, inking or painting it out. That way, we have a more intimate overstanding of the roots that lead to the present fruit, as well as the psychological nutrients that allowed that fruit to thrive in the first place. Sometimes, a shallow comprehension just won’t do with us creative types; we’re skin-divers.

There’s no longer a heavy stigma on going to therapy or vocalizing your need or desire for therapy. Whether they realize it or not, comic artists and writers, professional and otherwise, can have a therapy session every time they sit down to create. Rather than write/create what you know, it seems as though it’s more productive to write/create what you feel.

The All-New, All-Indie Cinematic Universe

Written by O'Brian Gunn

Avengers: Endgame puts a cap on more than a decade of Marvel cinematic stories.

With Avengers: Endgame finally unleashing its cinematic might on the world and bringing a conclusion to phase three the MCU, now’s the perfect time to reflect on what was and what could be. Rather than focus on the MCU or the DCEU, let’s ponder the possibilities of a smaller, independent comic book universe.

While I’m in seven unique flavors of love with the MCU (and leaning more into the DCEU with their last few movies), I have to admit that I’m feeling...not quite burnt out, but wondering “what else ya got?” We’re in a golden age of TV, and comic book properties have never been more popular, both on and off the screen. That’s both a blessing and a curse; a blessing because we get to see major and crowd-favorite superheroes brought to life off the panels of a comic book, but a curse because there’s levels of monotony and “playing it safe” to nearly every comic book property.

Watching Marvel’s Legion can be a mind-expanding experience.

I can’t even keep up with the number of shows based on comic books currently available on different platforms. I usually check out previews for them, maybe even sample a few episodes. To me, most of them usually have the same formulaic feel to them, albeit with the occasional slight remix. That’s why Noah Hawley’s Legion has long been one of my favorite comic book-based shows, and one of the few I make an attempt to keep up with.

If it premieres on HBO, everyone will watch The Watchmen.

Based on Marvel’s Legion/David Haller, the show focuses on David and his struggles with his mental health and reining his powerful psychic abilities under control, all while making sense of the source of his schizophrenia. One thing I adore and appreciate most about the show is how frakkin’ experimental, bizarre and innovative it is. It’s not afraid to leap outside the normal narrative box and take a deep dive into what it would be like to be a telepath.

With HBO bringing the beloved Watchmen to the small screen (and looking more and more intriguing with every preview I see), now’s the perfect time for a cinematic universe based on a smaller, lesser-known comic book property. One of the great things about this is the fact that this indie cinematic universe doesn’t have to focus on superheroes per se. Or if it does, maybe a different type of superhero (physically or mentally disabled superheroes) or an approach to superheroes that audiences aren’t used to seeing (focusing on sidekicks or retired superheroes).

Indie comics aren’t intended to please the masses like DC, Marvel and other major publishers/film studios. By concentrating less on satisfying everyone (and the revenue that comes with it), indie creators can focus on telling the stories they want to tell, stories they want to read, stories that explore a popular narrative in a unique way. For instance, David Yarovesky & James Gunn are adding a horror twist to the superhero origin story with the upcoming Brightburn film. Imagine a cinematic universe similar to the Alien franchise where superpowered beings could be turned into zombies or possessed by demons and became threats to the world and the very people they once protected. The movies could explore the initial contagion/possession, how the heroes cope with friends becoming enemies, how the villains are also impacted by the possession/contagion and the origins or the possession/contagion, and how to contain or resolve the possession/contagion. I’m more than ready for the super-horror genre.

If Brightburn can bring the scares, we may see a new wave of super-horror films.

How many times have Hollywood executives gutted creativity or pumped the brakes on a creator’s ideas for a movie in development? What would the MCU look like today if Joss Whedon had been able to freestyle rather than have little choice but to stick to the Marvel’s curated list of dance moves and beats? While there’s no airtight guarantee this won’t happen with an indie cinematic universe, it’s fair to say there’s less of a chance of this occurring. With less interference and fewer cooks in the kitchen, there’s a better chance of getting the diversity we crave in stories, POV and characters (especially characters).

Something else to think about with an indie cinematic universe is how such movies will be marketed and advertised. Movie trailers (often) give too much of the plot away. Indie creators can implement creative marketing strategies that still serve to build hype and get the word out, but do so in a way that doesn’t spoil the movie-going experience or give audiences a false impression of the overall tone of the movie. Even if indie creators have a sizeable marketing budget, they may still have the freedom to try something new, and the knowledge necessary to pull it off.

There are rumblings of lesser-known comic books being made into TV shows and movies. For instance, Valiant Comics’ Bloodshot is supposed to debut on the silver screen in 2020. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a trend, one that ushers in a breath of fresh air that tests the boundaries of creativity and shows that creation is the original and one of the most powerful superpowers.

Bloodshot from Valiant Comics is slated to make his big-screen debut in 2020, launching a new Valiant Cinematic Universe. (art by Arturo Lozzi)

Fight Your Friends is a card-battling game brought to you by Cold War Inc.

All you need is 10 cards, 10 minutes, and 1 friend.


Build A Crew

Using 30 Gold, build a crew of exactly 10 fighters (Friends) and rumble with your buddies to see whose crew is the ultimate Fight Your Friends champion!

Match Crews

Each match contains four rounds. Round One pits one of your Friends against one of your opponent's Friends. In each round that follows, you and your opponent both add an additional Friend to the fight until it all ends in Round 4 with a knock-down, drag-out four-on-four slug-fest!

The Winning Crew

At the end of all four rounds, add up the Gold value of your winning Friends. The crew with the most Gold wins the match!


The Orders

All Friends are split up into three Orders, each with different strengths and weaknesses.

Network.png

The Network

The Network is an Order of brilliant Friends who favor technology and subterfuge to get an edge on their opponents. With no discernable chain of command, it’s difficult to determine the size and reach of The Network but it is believed to be far bigger than the other Orders, with anonymous membership in the thousands.
