MTG Cardsmith: Ragemoor Pub

There is MTG Cardsmith “fan fiction”. MTG Cardsmith offers the online service where fans can created collecting cards by themselves. Cards are not printed but they are downloadable. A fan who calls oneself as Biblio (May 31, 2015) made a Ragemoor card which reads, “{t}: Add {b}, {r}, or {g} to your mana pool. / Whenever a creature you control dies, Ragemoor deals 1 damage to target player, then he or she discards a card at random, then put a +1/+1 counter on up to one target creature.”. And there is as a main pict, the cover of Ragemoor #1 (2012).

No Corben cover!Revista: De Letra Em Letra (Versão Online) vol. 3 no. 1 BR

2016. Universidade Federal de São Paulo, Brazil. Color. 256 pgs. [] [PDF (broken link:] [Google Translated version].
Pgs 216-228: Article, “O Corvo – Intertextualidade, Técnica e Tecnologia nas adaptações da Obra de Edgar Allan Poe por Richard Corben” aka “The Raven – Intertextuality, Technique and Technology in the Adaptations of the Work of Edgar Allan Poe by Richard Corben” by Rodrigo Stormberg Guinski. No picts. In Portugese only.

The aim of this paper is to discuss certain aspects of the comic book adaptations of poems and short stories by the writer Edgar Allan Poe made by the artist Richard Corben. Corben published these adaptations in various periods of his career and through different publishers. Issues such as the
transposition of textual material for other media, in this case comics, and how this establishes intertextual relations between Corben’s work and other media, will be examined. Other aspects covered are the expressive use of color, the exploration of several illustration techniques, the relationship between artwork and the narrative content, and how the evolution of offset printing technology, with special attention to methods of color separation before and after the use of the personal computer to perform the task in the 1980s influenced Corben’s color artwork.

Key words: comics; literary; technology
