Yes, I’m late to this series. But when Comixology had another one of their sales and I could pick up the entire run for a fairly low price, I jumped. Glad I did. It’s a fun book, right up there with John Byrne’s run and Dan Slott’s. I think I’d put it third on that last, but that’s no slight against it. They’re all great runs. A more interesting challenge would be to figure out whether I prefer Slott’s run or Byrne’s.
We turn now to the original “Tellos” #1 issue, released through Image Comics back in the spring of 1999. Created by Todd Dezago and Mike Wieringo, it included Paul Mounts on colors and Comicraft on letters. “HyperAnalysis” is an occasional series in which I look at a comic book page by page to see what we can learn about its storytelling style and structure. Search through the archives and you can see a couple of pages I did from Mike Wieringo’s first issue of “Fantastic Four” with Mark Waid.
Mark Millar is well known for one thing lately: Creating mini-series with top name comic book artists that get sold to Hollywood before the first issue hits stands. Needless to say, this colors those books in many a reader’s mind. The world of comics is littered with failed screenplays turned into “graphic novels” for the sake of putting together a better pitch document for the writer. Often, they don’t even make it past an issue or two.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
