Posted by Tom Mason
Categories: Editorials, Movies, Marvel Comics,

"My pitch: It’s the energy of Guy Ritchie‘s Sherlock Holmes crossed with the bump-in-the-night thrills of Paranomal Activity; in TV terms, it would be like turning House MD loose on Supernatural." - Paul O'Connor talking about what a Dr. Strange movie could be like. Joining him in the discussion, Chris Ulm, and yours truly. Be sure to check out our other notable quotes. [Artwork: Dr. Strange © Marvel Comics]...

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. Number five made me laugh out loud. And Spurgeon does it again: I think Howard …

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 …

Whoa. To everyone in the Eastern US affected by Frankenstorm Sandy, my heart goes out to you. Stay safe and I hope normalcy returns as soon as possible. (And don’t forget to vote!) Show business knew how to take away the game ball from Sandy coverage with the announcement that George Lucas was selling Lucasfilm to Disney for $4 billion (with a ‘b’). That’s just mind-boggling. And with that news came the news that new …

Here. Now.'" - Award-winning science fiction writer John Scalzi (Redshirts, Old Man's War) weighing in on Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm Be sure to check out our other notable quotes!

Disney/Star Wars: Top 10

Star Wars/Disney jokes were old the second the deal for Disney to acquire Lucasfilm was announced, but that won’t stop anyone, especially me. A meme went around on Facebook earlier this week started by screenwriter William Martell. What are the best/worst Disney/Star Wars movies? I joined in, thinking what a great idea, and then so I didn’t monopolize the thread, I started keeping my thoughts to myself to share them here because I can. Here …

Quote Of The Day: Iron Man 3

Posted by Tom Mason
Categories: Movies, Marvel Comics,

"Whew. Just saw the new Iron Man trailer. I’m really glad they got rid of that 'snarky humor action adventure' trope. No AC/DC, no quips, no fast cars, no stripping stewardesses. Finally, the pointless debris of 'entertainment' has been discarded in favor of the grim truth that lies beneath the surface of every comic book character." - Chris Ulm, co-founder of Appy Entertainment (and a co-founder of Malibu Comics in an earlier life) saw the …

First off, smart thoughts on the state of various elements of the comics industry - retail, Marvel, 24 Hour Comics Day - from Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter. Bleeding Cool has the story announcing Rob Liefeld’s latest retirement from comics. And then moments later says he’s back. Here’s a nice review of Mark McKenna’s new indy comic, Combat Jacks. “While McKenna might be known as a great inker, he is certainly a surprisingly good …
