Found via When Fangirls Attack, still one of my daily must-reads…
Truly an excellent list, no? I’ve been wondering why no one is smart enough to employ Caroline Dhavernas on another TV series, but hey! Bryan Fuller, co-creator of Wonderfalls, works on Heroes now! Hook a sistah up, Bryan. You know she’ll rock it. Maybe you can get Katie Finneran while you’re at it, she is way too awesome to not be on my TV screen every week. I also put in a plea for Emma Caulfield in my last episode review. Please?
So, Cory has a new comic he’d like to share. Rather, his comic shop recommended it to him and now he’s recommending it to all of us. DMZ, by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli – I’m very happy my buying them in singles helped so Cory could by it in TPB and declare it one of “a new kind of comic.”
But then I thought, “Holy shit! What if Cory reads an OLD kind of comic and likes it? Then he’ll tell everyone how much he likes it, and I’ll die of a heart attack!”
I DON’T WANT TO DIE OF A HEART ATTACK!
So please, for gods sake, don’t anyone tell Cory about all the Starman trades out there – or The Shade mini-series that went with it. Or the JSA: The Liberty File. Has he read Marvels, or Kingdom Come, does anyone know? Maybe I’ll be ok.
But, if he ever discovers Astro City, I’m a goner. Matt, Sarah, if that happens… I love you guys, and you can have my trade paperback collection.
I’ve been reading Planet Hulk loyally over in The Incredible Hulk; I think it’s been fun, absolutely credible science fiction with the Green Goliath tossed into the mix as the ultimate wild card.
As such, I’ve been excited for World War Hulk, the miniseries coming this summer in which the Hulk finally returns to Earth to ostensibly seek revenge against those especially puny humans who chose to blast him out into space.
What especially excited me was Joe Quesada’s description of the event as a “sorbet” after the universe-spanning angst and chaos of Civil War. Here’s more of what he said:
However, with respect to the sheer number of tie in titles, this will nothing like Civil War. It’s a giant story but not a giant publishing event so the investment for fans will be minimal and it will be constructed very similar to our past Ultimate Universe events. But, the story will involve almost everyone, will have lots and lots of smashing and will answer some questions once and for all that have been troubling Marvel readers for some time now.
In other words, not as big, right?
From Alert Nerd’s “Batshit Crazy, In A Good Way” Bureau comes word today that James Cameron, director of Terminator 2 and Aliens and Titanic and on the whole more ass-kickingly good movies than groan-worthy awful ones, has found the final resting place of Jesus Christ.
This might just be my favorite news story EVAR, folks.
Nic Cage is now officially your moderately embarrassing dad who thinks he’s still cool.
If you are the Movie Protagonist and Sam Elliott shows up in your Movie? You are fucked. Same thing with Peter Stormare, Peter Sarsgaard and Fionnula Flanagan. Seriously, if Fionnula Flanagan wants to give you some maybe-kindly, maybe-sinister advice? So fucked. Run in the opposite direction, Movie Protagonist!
Young Nic Cage looks so not like Nic Cage that it is kind of hilarious. As is much of the movie.
What a waste of Donal Logue.
Eva Mendes is pretty and would still make a great She-Hulk.
What the hell with Wes Bentley? Wasn’t he the hot new thing for a while? Didn’t it look like he was angling to be Poor Man’s Tobey Maguire? What happened?
Movie Ghost Rider is basically Radiskull. One by one! Just for fun!
