A big congratulations to my buddy Tom Nguyen, whose art instructional book “Incredible Comics With Tom Nguyen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating Kick-ass Comic Art” debuted today. I heard that Impact, the publishers, brought 50 copies to Comic Con and they were snapped up in an instant. Tom had only one copy left to show …

Punisher: War Zone will be the name of the sequel to The Punisher movie. Replacing Thomas Jane will be Ray Stevenson, who portrays the Roman Legionnaire Titus Pullo on the HBO series “Rome”. (I just watched the entire season 1 box set this last weekend while I was canning spaghetti sauce – what better use …
The bunnies reenact Saw in 30 seconds.
I just heard about this. They send 40 children out in the middle of the desert, where they’re expected to run a community WITH NO ADULT SUPERVISION. That is, they’re in control of water, sanitation, law enforcement, who gets food, EVERYTHING. Check it out: It looks like this show already has a cloud of controversy …
Just some fun personal news I thought I’d share. So LevaFilmWorks (who’ve done wonderful documentaries and that really hilarious mockumentary “R2-D2: BENEATH THE DOME”) is doing a documentary on certain DC Comics characters and they want me to be in it as a comic book historian. Good times! Let’s hope I sound like I know …
Yeah. Imagine a remake of THE WIZARD OF OZ with Dorothy as an ass-kicking, hard-edged heroine. Oh, dear lord. The full story is HERE.
Fan Expo Canada was held this past weekend at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in the shadow of the CN Tower. That is, it would have been in its shadow if the sun had been shining, but it was an overcast and occasionally rainy day. The Convention Centre itself seems to be mainly underground anyway.
Please allow me a moment to gripe about the Happy Meal Toys at McDonalds. The current toys are characters from the Legion of Super Heroes cartoon. The promotion has gone on now for several weeks and is nearing its end. I just got Bouncing Boy today, though he doesn’t actually bounce. Somebody missed an opportunity …
Sounds like the location of these scary tracks is Vancouver’s north shore. I have one question: how smart is it to have such dangerous track and such wild stunts in a place that is maddeningly inaccessible to an ambulance? You’d better hope your fellow X-gamers feel like portaging your busted butt back to civilization. Thanks …
Scary! I never even liked going over a curb on my bike. As for this path…I wouldn’t even want to play a video game of this path, let alone attempt it on an actual bepedaled conveyance!
The country of Estonia, which is south of Finland and borders Russia and Latvia, suffered a heavy onslaught via rogue hackers. It had a lot of significance in that it brought up several issues to light concerning a country’s security and what the proper protocol was in dealing with such a situation. The full story …
SPOILER WARNING: Slight, unimportant spoilers from the splash page of today’s “Birds of Prey” #109. I respect Tony Bedard. A lot. I wouldn’t say I’m a devotee who buys everything he produces, but I have found that most anything with his name on it will be a solid comic book that is totally worth the …
Here are all of Stan Lee’s Marvel movie cameos (well, except for the too-ostentatious speaking role in Spider-Man 3).
Star Trek meets Monty Python, And they said it couldn’t be done… (Well, I did anyway) Also, check out the latest log on my LiveJournal. While searching YouTube for info for my trip to Korea, I found some, well… INTERESTING videos from their northern neighbor.
For adults only. I love it!
My buddy Rob says he’s never seen a live action Wonder Woman. I boggled… then remembered that hey, I barely caught Wonder Woman myself. I wasn’t even ten when it was on…and Rob’s a decade younger than me. Still…with DVD box sets, there’s no excuse to not at least watch it sometime. I mean, aside …
I almost missed getting into 30 Rock because I can’t stand “Scrubs” (the “Wings” of the new millennium), the show which came on before it. If NBC smartens up, they’ll put it on in the same hour as “The Office.” If you haven’t yet been won over, check out The 10 Best Moments from 30 …
Ever wonder about those projects that could’ve been but were never filmed? Don’t be stupid, of course you do. Follow this link then to a list of awesome ideas that were never actually made.
Mike Wieringo died on Sunday of a sudden heart attack; he was forty-four years old. I met him once– same time I met Todd DeZago– and both of them were warm and friendly gents, very enthused about the form and the fans. When I first started reading Wieringo’s work, I didn’t “get” it; it seemed– …
