At number 2 this drawing: Now Deviant Art is a good site. They host a good deal of interesting and unique art from a eclectic collection of people. I actually think that user: supercrime’s “awen” is pretty good and it probably makes a cool tat. However, as for his creation being the symbol “worn by members of a vast army of “cursed children”.” I am somewhat skeptical. While I don’t want to brashly pass judgment on another’s prophetic vision I am doubtful of the authority of a prophetic figure who is thoroughly ungoogleable. Adrian Rane, the first man to experience the “supercrime prophecies” (a series of dreams and visions related to the apocalypse), returns only a single hit to a marketing firm which on investigation contains a simple misspelling of the name of Adrian Raine, a noted psychologist. Both Adrian Rane and supercrime fail to return hits on Everything2 and Snopes which leaves me befuddled about the existence of Adrian Rane and the supercrime prophecies.
So, I would like to put out the digital equivalent of an A.P.B. on Adrian Rane and all information leading to revelation of the supercrime prophecies. If you can find any information on this potentially important man and his revelations let me know and you’ll have earned yourself junior member status on the supercrime team.
The rest of the top ten Google hits are without much excitement with one exception.
At number 10 is Tone Milazzo’s personal site. Tone is an up and coming young comic artist whose book (comic book) Seize Him!: Confessions of a Hired Goon is worth checking out. I also found Tone’s 100 word story project intriguing, so take a look at that as well. As a budding writer who hasn’t written anything the 100 word story may be a good place for me to start. I contacted Tone about getting a copy of Seize Him! and he said that he has submitted the book to several publishers and some have expressed initial interest, but he is still waiting to hear back from some of the others. So, a possible publication appears to be several months in the future and Tone said he would let me know if/when that happens. I hope it does, and I’ll keep you updated.
