I'm suddenly very interested in stories, novels, films, music, poems, and comics/graphic narratives that take insanity, altered states of consciousness, and/or terminal illness as a primary theme. My general preference is for science fiction and speculative fiction, but suggestions from other genres would be very good as well. [more inside]

I'm looking for examples from literature, comic books, film, and other media, in which a character, for no clear reason (or unexpectedly), is a cowboy. [more inside]

How often are the stories of a comic, novel, play, TV series, movie, or song conceived by the writer's friend, relative, acquaintance, neighbor, mailman, dog, etc? [more inside]

A number of years ago (8? 10?) there was a relatively low budget movie version of The Fantastic Four
made, only to be bought up, and never shown the light of day, awaiting a big-budget production in the future.
Has anyone stumbled across information of this aborted project, and does anyone know where some video of it exists (in a digital format)?
