Rich Johnston At The London Film And Comic Con Tomorrow, Table 38

Tony Lee talked about running the comic book side of the London Film And Comic Con on Bleeding Cool yesterday. Well, it seems that I am going to be giving him an even greater headache. I will be at the London Film And Comic Con as a guest. I'll have a table and everything. But it […]

John Carpenter's 'The Thing' Commemorative Art Book At SDCC

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the horror classic by film legend John Carpenter, The Thing. The film, which starred Kurt Russel, Keith David, and Wilford Brimley, is easily among the most influential horror movies ever made and, alongside the equally influential Halloween and Escape from New York, helped launch John Carpenter's directorial career into […]

The Impact Of The Data Bullet – Annihilator #6 Condenses The Series

The Eisner Award-nominated series Annhilator by Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving has come to a close this week with issue #6, "Womanoid". A trade edition will be forthcoming from Legendary, too, with the hardback listed as being released on July 29th.

The Supercrash Of The Superheavy Fallen Star In Annihilator #5

Wait, what? I have a lot of confused feelings and even confused thoughts about Issue #5 of Annihilator, one of my favorite comics out right now.

5 Notes On Annihilator For The Curious-Minded

Annihilator #1 comes out today from Legendary Entertainment, written by Grant Morrison (see his previous interview at Bleeding Cool here) and illustrated by Frazer Irving. It's a "witchy" tale of a fair amount of complexity and considering its complexity is not something you'll be able to do at a first reading. The visuals of this […]

Annihilating The Fourth Wall With Annihilator And Multiversity

Annihilator #1 by Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving is published by Legendary Comics today. And you might consider it a companion piece to Multiversity #1 as well. That comic made a big deal of breaking down the fourth wall, literally having the narrator address the reader, asking them to stop reading the comic, because of […]

Frazer Irving Tells A Story With The Covers Of The Returning

You may have caught Resurrection on TV the other night. Or maybe you watched The Returned, a French TV series. Both are about people who, after being dead for years, return to existence as if their deaths never happened. Oh and there's Revival as well, which, you know, may have rather "inspired" Resurrection. It seems […]
