I wish I knew what this was about, the plot seems AMAZING.

Back in 1997, Nicolas Cage spent $150,000 for a copy of the June, 1938 issue of Action Comics #1, containing the first appearance of Superman. That same issue was stolen from him in 2000 before mysteriously turning up in a San Fernando Valley storage locker in April. The comic was taken as evidence by the police and since then the actual owner of the artifact has been shrouded in mystery.
wait, the joker….is a good guy?
not as exciting as I thought it would be, but it has a particular appeal. I dig it.
After three feature film versions, Frank Castle is heading to the small screen. Deadline reports that Fox has plans to develop Marvel Comics’ “The Punisher” as a television series from former “Criminal Minds” showrunner Edward Allen Bernero.
Set up through ABC Studios, “The Punisher” will take on the format of an hourlong police procedural. In this version, Castle will work by day as an NYPD detective and by night as the Punisher, righting the wrongs that he legally can’t.
This is a horrible idea. Did they learn nothing from the success of the comic movies/television series that stayed true to the original story? This is taking the Punisher name and applying it to someone / something else entirely. Frank’s got to be a vet back from the war, trying to regain his relationship with his family, only to have them brutally murdered while playing frisby in the park. He then has to kill people. LOTS of people. I somehow doubt that ABC is willing to show the kind of bodycount that The Punisher truly demands.

The images at issue are all comics in the manga style. No photographic evidence of criminal behavior is at issue. Nevertheless, a warrant was issued and the laptop was turned over to police. Consequently, the American has been charged with both the possession of child pornography as well as its importation into Canada. As a result, if convicted at trial, the American faces a minimum of one year in prison. This case could have far reaching implications for comic books and manga in North America.
The CBLDF’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to aid the case by raising funds to contribute to the defense and to help the defense with strategy and expert resources.
Brownstein says, “This is an important case that impacts the rights of everyone who reads, publishes, and makes comics and manga in North America. It underscores the dangers facing everyone traveling with comics, and it can establish important precedents regarding travelers rights. It also relates to the increasingly urgent issue of authorities prosecuting art as child pornography. While this case won’t set a US precedent, it can inform whatever precedent is eventually set. This case is also important with respect to artistic merit in the Canadian courts, and a good decision could bring Canadian law closer to US law in that respect. With the help of our supporters, we hope to raise the funds to wage a fight that yields good decisions and to create tools to help prevent these sorts of cases from continuing to spread.”
really? you’re going to cancel Uncanny X-men on the crappy number issue #544? what’s wrong, couldn’t hold out till issue #550? Why the reboot anyways, you too jealous of DC?
This is why people are leaving comic books in droves. This is why comic book sales are down all across the board, because of cheap crap like this.
I’ve been seeing this around the internet, and it behoves me to post it here, but really, it’s a let down. it’s what you would expect from a french version of batman fighting a french version of wolverine (wtf?). lots of black and white and a story line that barely make sense, even for the french.
Here’s the comic that he modeled it after, and it’s a pretty good duplications…but why would you do this to your back? 20 years down the road when it’s bleeding over, it’s not going to look all that hot. WHY.
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?
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.
