Everything Wrong With The Hateful Eight

I like the history of The Hateful Eight, how it was supposed to originally be a sequel to Django Unchained until Quentin Tarantino realized it worked better if we didn't know any of the characters going in… I can appreciate letting the characters run the story and the writer being willing to follow along. But […]

Hateful Eight Was Meant To Be A Django Novel

In a video interview with DP/30, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino revealed that his original concept for the Hateful Eight was actually a novel idea for his other character Django. As he began working on the story he found that as it progressed something was wrong… and it was because we already knew Django and his moral compass. […]

Booze Geek: D'Tango Unchained

By Dylan Gonzalez Beer: D'Tango Unchained Brewery: Weyerbacher Brewing Co. ABV: 9.6% No chains needed to hold back the flavor profile on this beer. Holy crap, the flavor profiles on D'Tango Unchained were smack in your face. Though labeled a dark ale, this was essentially a sour ale, a style of beer that I am still exploring.  […]

Remember when U2 did that deal with Apple and everyone with iOS suddenly found they had the new U2 album free, permanently on their device, whether they wanted it or not? Especially as, you know, since the device had the album on it, that iTunes decided that you ust like U2 and started offering you […]

Could A Django/Shaft Comic Book Be Next On The Cards?

Reading about Dynamite's new comic based on the Shaft novels got me thinking. Of something I'd heard at the Quentin Tarantino panel at San Diego Comic Con. That he's worked out some kind of geneology between the Django of Django Unchained and the lead of the Shaft novels and movies. How Django's wife has the […]

Saddling Up For An Epic Crossover – Matt Wagner Talks Django / Zorro

My trip to San Diego Comic Con this year ended on Saturday, which meant I was unable to go to the Dynamite panel on Sunday where Quentin Tarantino and Matt Wagner talked about the upcoming crossover event Django / Zorro. But I did get to interview Wagner about the upcoming series and try to get […]

Django Uncredited?

There was something oddly missing from the first issue of Django Unchained from Vertigo. The name of the writer. Reginald Hudlin, producer on the movie, also wrote the adaptation from Tarantino's screenplay. But when the first issue was published, his name was missing. Some expressed concern to me that Reginald wasn't getting his fair due. […]

Mike Cotton Joins DC Comics As Editor

Ex-editor of Wizard Magazine who was there until almost its dying days, he is also the publisher of Champion! as a comics magazine app, though that […]
