Enter Sandman Overture

Neil Gaiman The Sandman Preludes and Nocturnes

A few weeks ago I stumbled into The Basement and talked shopped with the guys, it was a great time and I enjoyed jumping back into books I hadn’t read in a very long time. Among the books I noticed the ads for a new Sandman book and it immediately piqued my interest. Neil Gaiman’s work evokes a complete metaphysical world where the boundaries are thin and flexible, allowing for readers to instantly accept the characters in the story. The Endless are the personifications of forces, emotions and events that we all encounter in life: Death, Despair, Desire, Delirium, Destruction, Destiny and my main subject- The king of Dreams, Morpheus, The Sandman. I asked Pete and Ramon if they were interested in Sandman and to my surprise they both admitted to never have reading any of the books so I did what any good friend would do- Go get some books to bring them up to speed in time for the new book!

Warner Brothers Fail Wonder Woman

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.
