Most-Read Comic Stories Week Of January 6-12
The DC Domo 2 1/2 inch figurines, out next month, show off a variety designs including DC Classic and DC New 52 for some. But because they are boxed mystery fugures, you won’t know whether of not your Superman will have underwear or not until you open it. Or if you’ve been stuck with Aquaman again.
Could they be the first half of gatefold covers for all of April’s DC New 52 comics?
If you have any plans to read Superior Spider-Man #1 stop now.
I understand that, across the New DCU line, we are to get some sort of “surprise” covers for April. Something that will really stand out on the comic shelves.
The comic shop apparently. Because women, or girls, just don’t go there. Ever. Until now, according to the trailer for the new episode of The Big Bang Theory.
Most-Read TV/Film Stories Week of January 6-12
This is the once relevant, once exciting anti-Oscars that has, for a few years now, played it horrendously safe. I guess they’re looking for column inches in the tabloids more than anything else these days.
Earlier in the week, I ignored some spurious stories regarding the return of Twin Peaks, the greatest TV show in the history of the medium,* but it seems these tall tales may have actually catalysed the earliest stages of a return for the show. It’s just like that time Michael Bay said the internet gave him the idea to cast Mark Wahlberg in his next Transformers film but not a total barefaced lie this time.
Everybody knows that old thing about how we try to hide lies by covering our mouths, and how the slightly more subtle version of this is the nose rub, right? And about how looking to the side is an indicator of lying or nervousness? And we can all recognise nervous laughter?
Take as an example, TV’s Pete Ross, Sam Jones III from Smallville. Certainly a celebrity, but not quite a star, Jones recently suffered a fall from grace that was so surreal, it shocked even him. And it’s one that finds him looking for his Iron Man moment.
The project was first referred to as Heaven Sent, but Guillermo Del Toro says the working title is now Dark Universe. It’s to be a DC comics-derived film that steers away from Kansas farmsteads or fetishwear vigilantism in favour of the monstrous and supernatural.
