May 13, 2013 2:03 pm FATALE #14 FF#7 THE DREAM MERCHANT #1 looks interesting so I might pick it up. BQ: My mom would make me and my brother after-school snacks and whenever friends would come over they'd be shocked because their mom's didn't make snacks for them. :P
May 7, 2013 3:03 pm The funny/interesting thing about her artwork is the comic pages where one girl is fighting twins has a stiffness and kind of languid anatomy to the characters as opposed to every pin-up/still image which have strong figures, motion and fluidity, esp. the back flip and the girl fight in color.
May 3, 2013 4:34 pm The shift in our culture observation as it relates to Iron Man is spot-on, Gabe. The reason Jerry Maguire worked as a movie was because the guy who starts out as the "I can get my players and myself the big money sports agent and all-around ladies man" is transformed into a more humble and accepting of a single mother good guy. It was the mid-90's and that world and all that came with it was still a behind-the-curtain mystery to most. If the movie had not ended the way it did and Jerry was relatively the same guy it would have bombed, I believe. The first Iron Man movie is basically the same character from beginning to end, only having changed some of his business practices. His love interest was always Pepper, he just couldn't accept it at first. And she's single. Great article. You called it, Gabe.

April 27, 2013 4:11 pm When I first wrote this I was thinking of being in a major city where comic books shops are much easier to find and did not at all consider any place which doesn't have these types of stores, so yeah, give away vouchers totally wouldn't. At the same time, giving away printed comics at any given movie theater isn't feasible either, I would think. The overhead could not be justified as an attempt to create interest in comics.
April 26, 2013 8:57 pm Maybe, instead of a free comic, a coupon/voucher/whatever for the free comic book at the LCS. This way people can look into other books and peak an interest.
April 25, 2013 10:13 pm The timing of this doesn't work for me. I'd really like to attend but can't. I'm sure someone like Fiona Staples will be there and I'd love to meet and pester her with a hundred questions before security escorts me away. Not sure why they'd schedule the con this way. Oh well, maybe next time. I am bummed...
April 24, 2013 8:28 pm Was Monster ever a anime/cartoon version or am I thinking of something else? In any case, the premise is interesting and aired putting out on HBO is the right move. And The Devil's Backbone is great movie, but because its a foreign film in another language, there's no strong promotion. Much like Troll Hunters.
April 24, 2013 8:14 pm I'm hoping for the day (episode) where Deadshot will have his silver mask with the scope or something very close to it. This looks like this is another good one.
