Warner Brothers Fail Wonder Woman

ww_logo.jpg

When my Director/Dictator sent me a link to the Rainfall film of Wonder Woman I was really hesitant. Then the thought of him actually liking something made me check it out. It was awesome. So well done and true to the character.
Then it hit me. Why had DC/WB dropped the ball on their Films? Why have they not done anything worthwhile with Wonder Woman? The TV series with Linda Carter was cancelled in 1979!!! Read more »

Original Batman Art Left In New York City Taxi

Neal Adams Lost Bag Poster

"Holy shit, Batman!" is a phrase probably uttered by the person entering the NYC taxi cab that was just vacated by famed comic book artist Neal Adams. Neal left two portfolios of his original artwork in the back seat of the cab, which let him off at West 27th Street and 7th Ave. The books contained "tens of thousands of dollars" worth of original art from Batman, Green Lantern, Catwoman, and more.

If you found Neal's artwork, return it. Please. It's the right thing to do. Don't make Neal cry. The entire world of geekdom shall weigh heavy upon your conscience for all your days. Until some kid in a Spider-man outfit finally tracks you down and billy-clubs you from behind a mailbox. It's just not worth it.

Neal sketched the driver, which is kind of an honor. So all you fans out there that want your portrait done by Neal, you know what to do.

Seriously though, if you have the book or any information, you're being asked to call 212-869-4170.

80 Million Digital Comics Downloaded from Comixology in 10 Months

Comixology in logo form

Comicxology, the digital comic book marketplace, has been serving up an average of 8 million comics a month for the last 10 months, according to The Motley Fool. That's impressive in that it brings it into the realm of print sales, and that it took three years to reach its first 100 million downloads.

In the article, the author basically begs Comixology to go public. Comixology plays it coy and just giggles a little, lifting it's proverbial skirt to a curtsey. It doesn't look like you'll see CMXLGY listed for sale any time soon, but look on the bright side, you can still buy FB for less than $50 a share...

Thor The Dark World was touched by Whedon

Thor The Dark World Poster

According to Alan Taylor director of the new Thor movie, Joss Whedon was "airlifted in" like some kind of comicdom SWAT team to rewrite a few scenes that "weren't working". Joss is kind of like a comic book geek senator. He gets in there and makes sure our geekiest interests are represented. Plus he's got the writing chops to make sure it also doesn't, you know, plain suck for everyone else. And thank god for that.
