www.superherohype.com posted this colour pic that is featured in the ‘Entertainment Weekly’ issue that came out today. I love the bat ears! The outfit looks great and the stance rocks for the shot. From only seeing this one shot, I have to say that I am still very optimistic about this project. Here is wishing …
Our forum has been down for well over two days now. EZBoards are working on dozens of their PUB servers and hundreds of board admins are posting complaints so it looks like a major outage, but EZBoard is putting up new servers to handle the load. I’ll let you all know when it starts working …
www.superherohype.com posted this pic that will be featured in Entertainment Weekly’s issue that comes out tomorrow. We should see a color shot sometime tomorrow floating around the ‘net.
Apparently there was a straight-to-cable movie sequel to Starship Troopers, and Scott McCullar reviews it. There is an official web site from Sony, but there is an unofficial fan site which is better and oddly enough the movie promotes the URL for the fan site!
I just love Photoshop contests, like this one for “detouching” celebrities like Halle Berry. (I once tried to detouch Halle Berry, but the bodyguard made me stand back.)
Or could Michael Jackson be Helena Bonham Carter’s monkey lady Ari from Planet of the Apes? Or even one of the Evil Dead? Link courtesy of Awful Plastic Surgery.
Green Lantern: Rebirth will bring back Hal Jordan and return him to the Green Lantern role. Green Lantern will end with issue 181, to begin again shortly afterward. For more, see Newsarama. Hal Jordan fans, rejoice, and give a hearty shout to Geoff Johns, the man with the golden touch.
Phil Meadows and I attended the Minnesota Comic Book Association’s MicroCon 2004 on Sunday, and it was an awesome experience. I was up until 3:00AM the night before getting the Metro Med web site built enough that we could advertise it on the fliers. It was six hours long. The chairs were a tad uncomfortable …
Greg Land has quit CGE, following the shelving of his “American Power” series with Chuck Dixon. No more is known at this time.
Aronofsky to Direct Watchmen? That’s ICV2′s link to the scoop by Aintitcoolnews. I dearly wish Terry Gilliam’s “Watchmen” had seen the light of day, since an early 1990s film could still have worked. But I fear any film version of Watchmen not set during the Cold War is going to be a failure. I’ve caught …
South Park Studios reports that their previously-announced, promoted and overhyped “Return of Lemmiwinks” has been…well, I’m not sure what you’d call it. For whatever reason they won’t make public, it will not air with these first six episodes of Season 8, nor will it air in the fall. Yet they say Lemmiwinks will return. Curiouser …
Raven House rescheduled with new artist. The gothic horror miniseries will now premiere in August with Mike Perkins (of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) instead of Leonardo Manco as the artist. Will Perkins be changing books? What does this mean for his spy series? CGE isn’t saying. Newsarama has a good interview with Chuck Dixon about …
The most recent Alien Vs. Predator online featurette is not only illuminating but it makes me hopeful that this film is up to snuff. Goodies: the characters and actors look better than the casts of Alien 3 and 4 (though Ron Perlman was good in that one; no slam against him intended), and the billionaire …
Action Man, the British equevalent of “GI Joe” is in danger of being laid low.
Nobody from Monitor Duty asked these questions, yet Chuck Dixon answered them (thankfully they were what some other thinking people were asking). They are at Chuck Dixon’s message board, but given the lack of archive there I’m rescuing the stuff. 1) was AP creator owned? can you take it to Image or icon or dark …
An association between the boys at Underground Online and Mike Mignola (pronounce it as you wish, at your own peril) brings forth UGO’s HELLBOY 101, which is basically a primer for all the casual fans to get ensconced in the apropriate comics lore before they go see the movie. Or perhaps it’s for movie fans …
A bare-bones web site has now been posted for Metro Med. It’s very basic at the moment, but it contains the pinup, pitch and detailed instructions for voting for us in the Small Press Idol. It’s now 2:30AM and Phil and I are departing at 8:00AM to attend MicroCon up in White Bear Lake (north …
Scott McCloud created 24 Hour Comic Day and it seems to be an event that is growing in participation. This year, participants include a few of the comic pros I keep tabs on. Scott Kurtz of PvP is going to do 24 strips in one sitting. He claims to have gotten some complaints that he’s …
For your completely random announcement of the day, you shall be informed that actor/model Djimon Honsou turns 40 today, if IMDb is to be trusted. Happy Birthday, Djimon! Laugh now, but this information just might be important one day. In related news, how come nobody ever told me that Deep Rising was so much fun?
