The similarities between LaBeouf’s HowardCantour.com and Clowes’ Justin M. Damiano are astounding. “I actually can’t imagine what was going through his mind,” Clowes told Buzz…
This is happening.
We can safely take out that ‘allegedly’. [UPDATE: Oh wait, they did.] Anyway, lawyers ain’t cheap, so you should help Dan out and buy the fantastic book ‘The Daniel Clowes Reader' that the comic Shia stole was featured in. I have it and it's pretty great. 'Ghost World' is included in it. If you follow me and you haven't read 'Ghost World' you should probably get on that.
“A popular conspiracy theory presumes that “Inhumanity” is Marvel’s way of making Inhumans a replacement for the mutant race that is off-limits to Marvel Studios because Fox owns the X-Men rights, which actually makes a lot of sense for the cinematic universe.”—

I did not think about this, but this is a brilliant theory. So much of the Big 2’s creative motivations recently have been about putting their IP ducks in a row so they can keep pumping out blockbuster thats tie neatly to what’s going on in their current continuity. It’s not a bad idea given that the easiest way to lose a potential new reader all jazzed up after seeing the new Spider-Man movie is to say “ACTUALLY, the real Spider-Man is possessed by Dr. Octopus (who is dead, btw) and is a huge douchebag. ENJOY!” I just always find it interesting to see where the strings are being pulled.
