    April 27, 2012 11:34 am Joelle Jones' Greendale Human gets my vote, but Andy MacDonald's Midnighter is my second favorite.
    April 23, 2012 11:22 am Is that the midget jester from the Men Without Hats - Safety Dance music video?
    April 3, 2012 12:14 pm Is it just me, or does BMB look just like Dr. Evil?
    March 5, 2012 11:49 am "This is the true story... of three friends... forced to live in a house...work together and have their lives taped... to find out what happens... when fanboys stop being polite... and start getting real...The iFanboy World!" I'd watch the hell out of that.
    January 19, 2012 12:09 pm First off, the new logo won't make me boycott DC. I will still get the books that I like regardless. That said, I still don't like the logo in its variant editions. I still think that if you look at the logo by itself, without the "DC Comics" or DC Entertainment" text underneath it, a casual viewer wouldn't easily place it as DC. In a two second glance, all I can see is the "C". In the color versions, I only sometimes see that. Marketing's main task is to make products recognizable and easy to understand. It seems to me that these logos are counterproductive. The variant editions especially aren't catering to an expanded fanbase, but specifically to longtime comic fans who can easily catch the references in the color changes or the effects in the logo. The DC star-swoosh thing was just fine. Maybe flattening that and just using the star and trail would've been more eye-catching and still stayed more recognizable than this complete overhaul. I dunno. I can see it's animated application in iOS or Android apps, but it's going to take a long while for me to get used to seeing this and it's variants in print.
    September 28, 2011 5:13 pm I could choose a number of different people to work on a reboot of Lobo. Remender would be one. Jason Aaron would be another. He's had fun with a little known Marvel curmudgeon in need of anger management and he would do well here, too. You mentioned him along with Tony Moore up above, but I'd give the whole thing over to Tom Fowler OR Sean Gordon Murphy. Either of those two have the unique style that would lend itself well to a new Lobo book, plus SGM has done space-y stuff before. But, my ultimate Lobo book would have to be a grand epic written and drawn by James Stokoe. That guy is crazy and I would just love to see what he does with a lunatic bounty hunter in outer space where he can go nuts with all of his weird ideas and concepts.
    July 27, 2011 4:27 pm I've liked everything Joe Hill's done in comics so far and that one-shot last year was awesome. I can't wait to read the miniseries. 
    July 27, 2011 4:24 pm REED GUNTHER! It's a cowboy and his bear! c'mon!
    July 27, 2011 4:18 pm The only problems I have with this dream cast is the director and the actress for Dale Arden.

    I didn't particularly like Zooey Deschanel in Hitchhiker's Guide, which this remake would be closest to in genre and magnitude, so I'd say no. My pick would be either Ashley Greene from the Twilight movies, though she may be TOO pretty for the role, or Jennifer Lawrence who's already proved she could be badass, good-looking, and a great actress to boot.

    My pick for director would be Joe Johnston. With the Rocketeer and Captain America under his belt, he's got that eye for period detail and slam-bang old school action serials that Flash Gordon needs. Even if it was updated to modern times, Johnston's sense to lean towards the hyper-real is perfect for this type of story. Just give him a good assistant director to take on the action sequences (James McTeigue?) and it would be perfect. 
    June 16, 2011 1:20 am I dunno about having to reboot this movie, especially updating it to a more modern time. I think there's still an audience who loves a good old fashioned gangster film and a new Dick Tracy could give it to them.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and throw Paddy Considine into the pool. He's one of my favorite actors that doesn't get the credit he deserves over here in the states. He's versatile, can be serious and funny. He's got a grizzled, world-weary look that may play well to a slightly darker take on the character, too.

    I like Gabriel Byrne, too, but I like Ian McShane better. And where's Pruneface?
