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

Whew! 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 …

You’ve seen the movie, and you’ve heard all the chatter, but did you know there’s also a comic book adaptation of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained? It’s a five-part Vertigo series out from DC Comics. It's written by Django producer Reginald Hudlin and illustrated by R.M. Guera. The first issue boasted a cover by Jim Lee. The whole thing is edited by my pal Jim Chadwick out of DC’s west coast office. He knows how to …

Weekend Reading: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Doctor Strange, Alan Moore and Ward Kimball

It's beginning to look a lot like the holiday season is fast approaching, yet every day is a holiday on the internets. If you were going to cast the Doctor Strange movie, and want to argue about it, you could do that at Longbox Graveyard where Paul O’Connor, Chris Ulm and I layout a scenario. JT Lindroos at Bookgasm looks at a chunk of UK graphic novels to add to your holiday shopping list: Tank …

Weekend Reading: Spacehawk, The Dandy, Kirby and Howard Cruse

I'm stuffed with the turkey of Thanksgiving, but there's always time to unstuff some of the internets. Let's take a look at things to read between naps. This has gotten a lot of play, but it’s too funny to not link to: Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter has compiled his list of the 10 Least Powerful People In Comics.

"I am getting a number of messages and notes on the cancellation of Hellblazer. This was not an easy decision and I'd like to say there is a natural conclusion to the Constantine storyline in the Hellblazer series. Number 300 will be as special as you would expect it to be. Hellblazer's had a long and incredibly successful run and that's a tip of the hat to all the great creators that have worked on …

One of my favorite games to play is the Casting Game, guessing who could play what part in a movie version of a book or comic. And I’m also a big fan of Kyle Baker’s work, and The Cowboy Wally Show and Why I Hate Saturn are two of my favorite graphic novels. On Facebook, Kyle recently said “Out in LA meeting about live action adaptations of the GNs I own. I really want Tom …
