Lying In The Gutters – 9th August 2010

Posted by August 9, 2010 Comment

The cover to Watchblood by Graeme Pearce there folks. Welcome to another week of a load of comic book nonsense – and one or seven damn fine scoops!

Top Ten Posts Of The Week

1. Three Green Lantern Movies In Three Years. I received an email from someone else involved in the production – hoping the rumour was true! And now they’ve named a writer for number two
2. John Byrne Wants Rob Liefeld To Draw Watchmen 2. Sometime all you need are three major points of interest in one headline.
3. Sarah Palin Of The Dead – looks like zombie celebrity lookalikes can still be popular…
4. Yogi Bear’s Tagline Is Ruder Than The Average Bear
5. That Neonomicon Scene That Freaked Everyone Out – lots of people like a spoiler. And like Alan Moore’s new metatextual horror.
6. Tony Scott To Direct Nemesis. Linked to by everyone from Nikki Finke to Heidi MacDonald (though not JK Parkin at Comic Book Resources strangely).
7. The Return Of Alpha Flight
8. Will Mark Millar’s Biggest News Ever Live Up To The Hype?
9. Mark Millar’s News About To Break Again – three stories about the same thing break the top ten. And people wonder why I run them. ‘Cos YOU read them. Yes, YOU!
10. Suicidal Spider-Man – I missed the resemblance to Segoni the first time too.
