we were robbed of seeing Adrianne Palicki in the rumored Lynda Carter-esque HOT PANTS. Yep, the infamous short-shorts were said to be 1 of 3 costumes seen in the show. Star spangled ass will never hit the TV airwaves. Fuck!
she doesn’t look bad at all in that outfit, it’s a shame that the series wasn’t picked up 🙁
ehhhhh. I’m not sure how I feel about this.
So those two masks (above) will be available for purchase (You know they ain’t giving it away) for theater goers to enjoy the 3D version of Transformers: The Dark Side of the Moon.
The 3d thing is official out of control. wtf are those things?
Also, do they come in my size?
Heritage Auctions expected to bring in $100,000 for page 10 of The Dark Knight Returns #3. It turns out their estimate was a little bit on the low side.
The piece actually sold for $448,125 to an anonymous collector — “the single most valuable piece of American comic art to ever sell,” the auction house said in a press release.

A Minnesota legislator had a bit of a jocks-vs-goths meltdown this week when he declared best-selling comic book writer and novelist Neil Gaiman to be a “pencil-necked little weasel who stole $45,000” from the state in the form of a speaking fee (that the writer ultimately donated to charity). The remark came from House Majority Leader Matt Dean, who is trying to pass new legislation changing the way programs for culture and the arts are funded in Minnesota. The Republican apologized after he was admonished by his mother.
So apparently some comic company is doing some promotion somewhere and sometime in the recent past, in which a comic shop could pay them to be featured on the cover of the latest #1 of some kind of Godzilla comic book. This image is of my local comic shop’s cover that they got done did for them on up there. I think I’ll buy me a copy of that there comic once I’m in the black again.
Did anyone else happen to catch their local comic shop’s cover?
When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster.
May 2012! OMG.

bone was one of the best comics that I’ve read, and one of the last ones that I picked up individual issues of. I own a colorized TPB set, and it’s very nice, but I kinda want the hardcover version, I think it’d look real nice on my bookcase.

Bryan Cranston Breaking Bad, Malcom in the Middle, whose star is seriously lighting up right now, has been cast as Commissioner Gordon; Ben McKenzie Southland is Bruce Wayne/Batman; Eliza Dushku Dollhouse, Tru Calling will be Catwoman and Katee Sackhoff Battlestar Galatica is Sarah Essen, Gordon’s love interest.
as excited as I am about another high quality Batman cartoon, I’ve seen his damn origin story about 50 times now, and it’s starting to feel like that’s all DC/WB knows how to do. Why not do somethin that takes place a little later in Batman’s life?
perhaps we poke fun because we love you so much, lol
Somewhat overshadowed by the calamitous Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the other big-budget superhero stage production, Batman Live, made a splash Tuesday in London with the unveiling of the key characters.
Officially announced in November, the $20-million touring arena show pits Batman and Robin against their rogues gallery in an ambitious production that features a giant video screen, a Joker hot-air balloon, recreations of several Gotham City locations — it takes 20 trucks to haul it all — and a Batmobile created by legendary Formula One designer Gordon Murray.
I’m not sure why, but I feel much better about this project than I ever did about the Spider-Man one. Perhaps it’s because there’s no sign of goofy-ass costumes and horrible music written by people that have no investments in the characters. Click through to see some videos.

I don’t know what a couple of these are. particularly Y
He’s the crab that this beach deserves, but not the one it needs right now.
it’s amazing what a little polish and a good soundtrack can do for a trailer
I don’t know how I feel about all this. Sure, the costume looks good, and the girl is beautiful and has some comic book cred already (she was in the aquaman tv movie that was hoped to be a pilot but didn’t make the cut).
Something’s off about the whole thing though.
Heritage Auctions estimates that the art for page 10 from issue #3 of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson’s The Dark Knight Returns (1986) will fetch at least $100,000 when it goes on the block on May 5.
I’m sure many of you would be surprised to know television icon, Adam West does not currently have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Outrageous!

Rocketeer Adventures #1
Well this is a happy turn of events. I’ve been waiting for a sequel to the movie since I was eleven fucking years old. A comic will do until they can get around to making more movies.

The above piece of art is concept art for a pitch Francavilla says he’s been working on some time. At this point it’s speculative as to if this will ever see the lite of day in a published comic, but we can all dream … can’t we?

1 – got my scanner up and running, so I’m scanning back issues of rocket raccoon.
2 – the search box should be automatically selected when you visit the site now, so you won’t have to keep clicking the search box if you happen to be searching for several series at a time.
3 – going to be working on integrating the wordpress theme and the custom backend. that’ll take a while though, sorry.
it’s done, nevermind, was much easiler than I was fearing. lemme know if anything odd is going on.
4 – working on the backlog of DCP covers to add to the site, but it’s hard ungrateful work, so I’ll eventually slog through them all, but again, it’ll take some time. one day I’m even going to integrate that database with the rest of the covers.
