Ah well, regardless of the questionable notion, Irregular Webcomic is still a hilarious webcomic. So I ask you, the reader, is David Morgan-Mar funnier than Scott Kurtz? If he isn’t you must admit that the strip is damned awesome. It also comes in promptly every day. Now what could be an interesting conversation, but won’t …

The trailer for Speed Racer is up… http://www.imdb.com/rg/VIDEO_PLAY/LINK//video/trailer/me60811758/
Kurt Belcher and Phil Neundorf, two gents I had the pleasure of working with on “Job Wanted“, are attempting to get a book published by Alterna Comics and they need your vote. All you have to do is post a comment and give them a star rating (the higher the better). No registration is necessary …
Sorry. Got on a kick.
I’ve been getting into Five For Fighting (a/k/a Jon Ondrasik) recently, mainly due to Jon’s recent tour of the radio talk shows to promote his new project “CD For The Troops.” I figured it’s about time I bought some Five For Fighting albums, but I wanted to check out more of his music. Not content …
I know some people were excited about the trailer for AvP2. Seeing the two beasties battling it out on Earth, in America, in the present… it at least sounded like a better plot. Plus, it was clearly going to be an R-rated movie, as the previous film should have been. Still, it was curious that …
There’s a little bit of kissing/sighing going on in this trailer, but I think it’s fairly innocuous.
Contrary to popular belief, the most gut wrenching, goriest, sickening films from the late fifties and sixties were NOT directed by George Romero, shown in Grindhouse cinemas, or even, surprisingly the focus of complaints by parent action groups. According to this clip, they were funded by state governments, used ‘real’ corpses and shown in our high …
This is the second trailer. The first one was on the Superman/Doomsday DVD
In comics most contests are geared toward artists. It’s just the nature of the beast that aspiring writers don’t have the opportunities to get their stuff seen like artists do. Well, Image Comics’ Shadowline imprint (Jim Valentino’s publishing house) and Newsarama mean to change this by creating a contest to find a new 21st century super-heroine …
Now George Lucas has just gone too far!
Operation Gratitude, who we’ve supported with our “Comics For Soldiers” fundraiser for the last few weeks, just announced that they have sent off their 300,000th care package. Actually, that happened on December 15th… and by the time I logged in to create this blog entry the number on their counter was up to 314,786, meaning …
The Bunnies are now re-enacting movies at their own URL: starzbunniestheater.com Up first: Spider-Man 3. I guess it says something about that mess of a movie that the re-enactment can barely skim all of the plot elements in 30 seconds.
Heath Ledger is turning in a good performance as the Joker so far, even though it’s clear that they’re deviating more from the comic book origins. (No chemical bath as far as we can tell…it’s just a mysterious psycho in makeup) Check it out at atasteforthetheatrical.com
Invest in films online with fake dollars! Okay, I don’t know what the point is. I guess it’s just fun. I mean, you can get stuff. Like, if you earn 3 million “dollars” profit you can exchange it for 3 actual dollars off of a shirt that says “Hollywood Stock Exchange” on it.
After watching The Grudge 2 last night (and recently watching both the original and the extended version), and then thinking about that movie series and the Ringu movies, I’ve come to the conclusion that Japanese horror films are all based on Japanese women having creepy hair. I mean, Ringu/The Ring and Ju-on/The Grudge both draw …
Hat Tip: Libertas.
How long will it take you to deduce his identity?
There are only a few days left of the Operation Gratitude donation drive, and they are also closing in on their 300,000th care package sent. As part of our first Comics For Soldiers drive, I have just mailed off 40 copies of “Job Wanted” and 100 copies of “Metro Med”, all of which were signed, …
One of the areas I’m awful at is art criticism. I can’t draw much more than stick figures, so when I look at Rob Liefeld’s art I have to say, “Hey, it’s way better than I can do!” Sure, the human body doesn’t bend like that, and that poor woman has the worst case of …
