Weekend Reading: Stan Lee, Alois Nebel, Adam Beechen and Stuntman!

Stan Lee 1975Whew! What a year! Let's see what the internets hold for the final few days!

Happy birthday to the Funky Flashman himself, Stan Lee, who turns 90. Buzzfeed has his life in pictures.

Here’s what I like about the internets: finding a feature length animated film adapting a graphic novel I’ve never heard of. In this case, it’s Alois Nebel, “a Czech feature length animation directed by Tomas Lunak and based on a trilogy of graphic novels by Jaroslav Rudis and Jaromir 99.” There’s a preview of it at the link.

Adam Beechen talks with Newsarama about Batman Beyond, and beyond.

My pal Richard Pachter reviews a nifty bunch of books including Happy, The Nao of Brown, Building Stories, Marbles, Fashion Beach, and more!

Comic Book Jobs: Who’s Hiring? Montreal ComicCon

Lara CroftAre you hot? Are you in “great shape” and will you look “good in a catsuit?” Oh, and are you a woman? If you answered “yes” to those three Q’s, the Montreal Comiccon 2010, “a trade show dedicated to comic books, manga, sci-fi and horror,” is looking for 5 models just like you.

They’re assembling an “Action Team” of charming female superheroes, “dressed in Lara Croft-inspired costumes (black catsuits, utility belts and weapons!)”

If you fit the costume and the costume fits you, you’ll be working on both Saturday and Sunday, September 11-12, 2010. Your job will be to “walk around the trade show, interact with guests, create ambiance and pose for pictures.”

The Action Team will also act as leggy information booths, carrying “maps and programs of the trade show” and be ready to “answer random questions from visitors,” a lot of which will be: “Are you single?”, “Is your name really Lara?”, “How’d you like to raid my tomb (snicker, snort)?”

COMIC BOOK JOBS: This Year’s Models For Comic Con International

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

Hey, all you gorgeous models, 18-years-old, and older. I know what you’re thinking – you’re 5’7” tall, you have the ability to stand for long periods of time in tiny shoes with spike heeled, and car shows and boat shows aren’t quite the modeling opportunity you were hoping for and you want a fresh challenge. After all, you’ve got a nice figure, enhanced by dieting, workouts and perhaps some well-placed scalpels, and you’d like to put that bikini body to work for you and get a little return on your ab investment. Maybe even show it off in some kind of form-fitting costume, all the while talking about how great some dude’s comic book is and fielding questions like
