Speaking of comics, been very much enjoying watching the mid 90s Spider-Man cartoon. Tight, exciting tellings of some classic Spidey stories. The Venom arc in season 1 was fantastic — way better than Raimi’s Spider-Man 3. Here’s the intro. Memories~
I put this video up on Youtube over five years ago, and I haven’t learned much more about it since. What I do know is that there was an attempt to produce an animated feature film of The Incal, and that this attempt failed. What I think you see here is a reel put together to bait more financiers into the project. Curiously at the end, there is an animated Arzach sequence and what looks like a Starwatcher sequence. This thing is baffling. And gorgeous. As far as I’ve heard, both Moebius and Alejandro Jodorowsky were involved in the production, but I haven’t heard either of them mention it directly.
This looks absolutely incredible — I’d never heard of L’Incal before.
There seem to be a couple of different editions of the comic in English — if anyone can recommend a particular edition, chime in on Quora.

Here’s part of page 151 of Harley Quinn: Preludes and Knock-Knock Jokes, a collection of the first seven issues of DC’s Harley Quinn comic series. Check out that classic Mac OS action happening in the bottom panel. Some notes:
Sadly, there’s no Chicago in this panel.
