So, can anyone give me a run down on what this series is about? I've hear a lot about it, but never really figured out what it was about...
Its about two characters sort of, a male journalist and a female computer hacker. Girl is sort of anti social, but pretty cool, then they both sort of come together in first book to solve a missing persons case that is linked to these murders. Its character strong work yes? Good story though, some grim and adult topics covered though. Serious focused on Lizbeth (hacker) more and more as series goes on, which is good, she is pretty interesting. Hope that helps a tiny bit? Ask any questions if you want. Movie got a lot of attention, outside Scandinavia for having a pretty realistic therefore brutal rape scene. Also a lot of discussion because there is going to be an American remake. (well, so soon)
Awwh yeah, and I am probably the only fan of the books here =(
I was kind of planning on avoiding that Girl franchise but now it looks like that won't be happening, I want to know who's the artist though
Hinds/Cowan's story "Case 21" in the Strange Adventures anthology was great so I'm looking forward to this book...finally Vertigo lives again!
Please watch the original movies first before the American remake if you plan on not avoiding =(
Plus, you'll really like it. Its like about this hot Scandinavian bisexual social misfit with a massive dragon on her occasionally naked back tasering thugs in their balls and all sorts of flirty fun 0_0
Great thread/blog! I'm glad someone did it, I have been waiting so long lol. Fantasy is so much more fantastical with the element of realism. Realism, needs a touch of uncertainty and mystery to be reality. Anytime you write fiction and have.. its really hard to write any fictional story without having some aspect of reality inherent even as a projected illusion. If there is some sense of reality present and you can measure its consistency and accuracy and predict what might happen (like if Spiderman punches Wolverines head, Wolverines head won't turn into butter that sings the Norwegian national anthem in black and white) well then thats a tiny bit more of reality present. (not that a comic where peoples heads explode into butter and start singing wouldn't be cool, but only I might want to see that)
Nanana nah, nananana nah, hey, hey.. oh wait, I liked you and was following you! :-)
Will hope you still get to stop in now and then, but I'll pretend to respect your decision, but rest assured I'll be thinking of ways to trick you back to CV. Otherwise good luck with your future endeavors and take care! *smile*
Whoops? In my country the indians were always the good guys... well, to be fair, it was the indians who were Mohicans that were the heroes. Things got confusing though cause the bad native Americans had mohawks, sorta. Also did not help that Magua was played by Sagat, the guy from Street Fighter. That was a really bad movie though. So maybe thats...
Superman, Batman, and Steve Trevor. Like a sitcom yes? Well, that and a rip off of Three Men and a Baby. With the added extra advantage of those three characters automatically being excluded as romantic interests forever more, just cause yeah no, I never want to see that in any context. Plus then any angle they play about Superman being her inspiration can be met with a well duh, he's her dad come back. #WIN.
