What Not To Remember The Alamo Comic Con For… (UPDATE)

This was the weekend for comic conventions, it seems. Phoenix Comicon, MegaCon, MCM London, Heroes & Villains, Balticon, and apparently the Alamo Comic Con. Which up until this point I had forgotten was on. Until this morning when I woke up to around twenty e-mails from comic book professionals asking me about what the hell was going […]

What Happens When You Ask Frank Cho For A Sexy Swamp Thing

There are some things that can only happen down under.

There’s Something In The Water For Red 2 And David Thewlis

In 1993, David Thewlis was about the most exciting thing in British cinema. He starred in Mike Leigh’s Naked as the egotistical, nihilistic street philosopher Johnny and practically set fire to the screen through sheer dramatic friction. Since then, Thewlis’ best work has often been less well known – though he did take in a […]

Monday Trending Topics: 72 Years Is An Eternity In Comics

It’s pretty fun to see DC bringing back the classic Quality Comics title National Comics this July, about 72 years after it originally debuted.  Of course, Kid Eternity is also a Quality character (and we’ve seen Quality-related titles The Ray and Blackhawks in the New 52 — and even a Plastic Man reference, I think), DC […]

Here Comes Red 2 – Who’s Back And Who Hit The Sacks?

The first Red was a pretty nifty adaptation of Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner‘s comics, with plenty of credit due to screenwriters Erich and Jon Hoeber for their added inventions and fairly tidy reshaping.

Second Red Trailer: John Malkovich vs. Senility

This is my second consecutive post to contain a trailer for a movie called Red, and it appears to be a bit of a step up from the previous one. This Red is the Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner one, now becoming a Robert Schwentke movie with John Malkovich, Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, […]
