Picks of the Week

The picks of the week from around the web.

  • The Underground Hip Hop Collection. Check out this cool blog offering lots of great hip hop, especially from the early 90s, when hip hop was experiencing the kind of optimism combined with trepidation of becoming a major pop culture phenomenon. An astonishingly creative period. Bonus for comics fans: identify the artists of two of the classic covers reproduced above.
  • Russel Keaton’s Superman. The disclosure of fascinating documents on the birth of Superman continues, this time with a concept outline and a number of sample strips that writer Jerry Siegel did with the now entirely forgotten cartoonist Russel Keaton, before the character debuted in Action Comics #1, drawn by Joe Shuster (Warning: PDF).
  • Ghostface Killah excised from Iron Man! This deleted scene from the Iron Man movie is not essential in any way, except for the inherent greatness of having none other than Wu-Tang’s Pretty Tony appear in a cameo, in an entirely appropriate role entertaining appropriately supreme clientele.
