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 […]
"When you think of Quentin Tarantino, the first person I think of is Samuel L. Jackson." That's the first thing Walton Goggins says in this featurette and for a lot of people that's true. Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, Jackie Brown and now The Hateful Eight. The two have worked together a few times. Tarantino said […]
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. […]
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. […]
Today saw Django Unchained come to Netflix. It also saw the release of the official sequel to Django Unchained, written by Quentin Tarantino. It is the only sequel to any of his works he has written. It just happens to be a comic book. That crosses over with Zorro. Django/Zorro by Quentin Tarantino, Matt Wagner and Esteve […]

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
I can't deny that getting to meet Quentin Tarantino before his San Diego Comic Con panel was a big moment for me. Especially since we mutually geeked out about the work of Jim Steranko. And with Matt Wagner here, it' clear that Django Zorro is a collaborative work between the two, rather than a filmmaker […]
This one is just team-up upon team-up. Dynamite Entertainment and DC Entertainment are set to co-publish a story co-plotted by Quentin Tarantino and Matt Wagner where Django meets Zorro. From what we are told, Tarantino considers this a sequel to Django Unchained and it was worked out between the filmmaker, the comic legend Wagner and […]
No word on when this might happen, but I can't imagine he'd be lacking for suitors.
Quentin Tarantino and Jay Leno sat down last night for a chat about the upcoming collected edition of the Django Unchained comics and, as it happens, a good deal more.
Importers be warned that this disc is locked to Zone A players as the film had different distributors in different countries.
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. […]
In the flesh. Okay, not flesh.
One familiar name who I was surprised to see in DC's editorial credits for the most recent issue of Earth Two was Mike Cotton. As editor of the book. 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 […]
Complaints included a call for a boycott from the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network.
Seems like a top bloke.
