Way back in the distant past…
I had an idea for a short web comic. Unfortunately, I have ZERO skill at drawing. Luckily, I know someone who has that skill in spades, and I’d been wanting to find a way to collaborate with him on something. So I sent it to my friend Lee Sargent, who graciously accepted the challenge of interpreting my script. I present it to you now in all its glory:

Well, apparently one does.
I don’t know if anyone else saw this coming, but I was completely blindsided.
Disney just bought Lucasfilm, including the rights to all their films – and most importantly, Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
Apparently, due to some rights issues with Paramount, Indy is just going to retire. That’s sad, but possibly for the best.
On the other hand, Disney has already announced that they are going to release Star . . . → Read More: Star Wars VII, VIII, IX… and beyond?!
You know, I was going to write a whole post about the specifics of stuff I loved about The Avengers. You’ve already seen my spoiler-free gushing (assuming you have done your homework properly). I thought about the stuff I would say – the coolness of Black Widow’s “terror” scene with the Hulk; the coolness of Banner and Hulk; the scenes that went on just a little too long, like the argument on the helicarrier; Coulson’s . . . → Read More: The Avengers (2012) with spoilers, and new things on the internet
Yesterday (well, technically today) I posted that The Avengers was one of three movies that I would see even if I had to sell my mother to the Russians, with no guilt.
Having seen it now, I completely stand by that claim. In fact, I’d consider selling her now just to see it again.
What Joss Whedon assembled here is phenomenal. Amazing. Incredible. I’m not sure I know enough superlatives to adequately capture how . . . → Read More: Review: The Avengers (2012) (no spoilers)
2012 has an impressive line-up of films. Time travel, mutation, gods, monsters, hobbits, technology, and sheer awesomeness all combine to create an almost inescapable desire to just set up an automatic withdrawal from my checking account to my local movie theater.
As usual, but even more so this year, money is tight. Hard choices have to be made. I don’t know if I’m strong enough to make them, but I have to try. Last . . . → Read More: 7 movies my mother has to worry about (and a bunch more)
Out of the ashes of our future destruction, a new hero has been born. Gabriel Bright. Beacon of hope. Defender of justice. Burdened, as are we all, with the knowledge of what is to come – and the responsibility to prevent it.
View now, the future we must change:
So, what you just watched (you did watch it right? I mean seriously, how hard is it to press a simple play button? That’s all . . . → Read More: The Birth of Gabriel Bright – DC Universe
(Man, I’m actually burning through my movie picks this year. This is awesome – big thank you to my parents for babysitting.)
Tonight my wife and I settled in for the highly anticipated Captain America: The First Avenger – and on opening weekend, no less! The trailers for this movie have looked awesome. Did the movie do as well?
Yes and no. Visually, I really think they nailed it. The costumes, the set designs, . . . → Read More: Review: Captain America
An extremely long time after I started it, I just finished Ex Machina‘s 50 issue run. Brian K. Vaughn puts on a heck of a story.
This is one of those stories that I think would work well as a TV series. It would be a bit different than most series, in that it covers two time periods at once, but that’s part of what makes it compelling. The basic structure of an issue is . . . → Read More: The Colors of Control: Ex Machina
How many major “cons” are there in a year (that’s “conference” for the un-geeked)? New footage is spilling out like water from WonderCon, held recently, and Green Lantern is pouring out 4 minutes of mostly new scenes.
Thankfully, it almost all looks better than the first official trailer, which I basically panned.
It’s still a little too obviously computer-generated for my tastes, but still better than the first trailer. Apparently I’m not the only . . . → Read More: Seeing Green… Lanterns
