More on 'The Monolith' at Newsarama

As previously noted, the rights to the DC Comics series THE MONOLITH have reverted to its creators — among whom can be counted Paperfilms' Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray — and the latest on that can be read over at NEWSARAMA. The bottom line is that if you missed it during the series' 2004-2005 twelve-issue run, now's your chance to check it out. (I'm embarrassed to admit that I missed it at the time but due to my lifelong fascination with the myths and legends of world cultures and religions, I'm intrigued to see how a modern tale based on the Golem, the most famous example of which would be the Golem of Prague, works. That said, I'm also curious to know how a Golem works without the required אמת on its forehead to animate it...Or maybe it's one of those Golem that's activated by parchments placed in its mouth? Whatever the case, I'll have my answers soon enough, gawdammit!)
