THE CROW – An Interview with James O’Barr

Interview originally appeared in Movement Magazine – Year 22: Issue #5

"The Crow" by James O'Barr

James O’Barr is the creator of the world renowned bestselling graphic novel and title character, “The Crow” – a dark metaphorical comic book that led to the famous movie adaptation starring the late Brandon Lee (in his final role) in 1994, as well as a few sequels, a TV series, and several other comic spin-offs. He wrote the book as a coping mechanism for the loss of his girlfriend at the hands of a drunk driver. It was originally published by Caliber Comics in 1989.

THE CROW - Interview

“Tonight, Hell sends an angel bearing gifts.”

Q and A

We open the interview with a few technical difficulties over the phone, James mumbles something about Japanese technology.

Erik Slader: …Ok, I think we got it! Thanks for bearing with us.

James O’Barr: It’s no problem, it just cut into your fifteen minutes. (laughs)

ES: Well I guess we better jump right in then!

JO: No, let’s ease our way into it. Ask me about my childhood or my favorite color. What’s my horoscope?

ES: (laughs) Well in that case, what’s the weirdest question a fans ever asked you at a con?

What I’m reading now…

BROKEN WORLD #1Boom Studios (Frank J. Barbiere, Chris Peterson)

Broken World

Broken World feels like one of the most original comics I’ve read in a long time. It’s a sci-fi drama, about a not-too-distant future dealing with the aftermath of an impending apocalypse. It’s the story of those left behind after the rest of humanity leaves Earth behind on a mass exodus. One thing I loved about this first issue is that there’s a countdown throughout as a world-killing asteroid nears. The story follows a young woman whose separated from her family during a shuttle boarding, because of something from her past. The last few pages show the countdown in single panels leading up to the last page which ends with “48 hours after predicted impact. Asteroid clear of Earth’s orbit.”

Retro Review: KINGDOM COME

Mark Waid and Alex Ross's "Kingdom Come"

“Angels. No, not angels. Gods themselves. Superman had returned… in doing so, drawing from seclusion the titans of yesteryear… their emerald flashes and scarlet strobes lighting the darkness of the day.”kingdom come - panels (Alex Ross)

“Kingdom Come” (1996) is one of those graphic novels that transcends the medium itself. This is a dark, apocalyptic epic about what could happen if the DC heroes really lived among us. Ultimately these larger than life battles are metaphors for the clashing philosophical ideologies that we face in our day to day lives. Mark Waid and Alex Ross’s masterpiece is required reading for any comic fan.

Kingdom ComeTold from the perspective of a normal man, Norman McCay, a pastor struggling with his faith, this is a tale of aging heroes dealing with the consequences of their existence. The story takes place in a far off future where the old guard has retired and a new generation of edgier super powered vigilantes have taken over. Following the death of ‘The Sandman’, Norman is visited by the spirit of vengeance, The Spectre, who shows him events that set the apocalypse in motion…
