The Equalizer 2 poster and trailer are here… and I like ’em. Of course I liked the first Equalizer movie, so maybe this isn’t big news. I do hope that all of the major action pieces weren’t shown in the trailer.
Spaceship Rocket recently posted six of Frank Miller’s Sin City covers. Of the six, the one above is my favorite. Following closely behind is the cover to Dark Horse 51. You can see all six by clicking over.
Man, I miss Miller’s Sin City yarns. If you know of any great crime comics that I may have missed, please respond in the comments.
May 5, 2018 is Free Comic Book Day. Dark Planet is making Stephen Franck’s Silver #1 available. Franck summarizes Silver as…
… an original universe built around Bram Stoker’s original Dracula, and it begins 40 years after the events of the novel, into the noir/pulp era of the 1930s. You meet James Finnigan, who is the most notorious conman/gentleman-thief of his day, as he teams up with Rosalynd “Sledge” Van Helsing (granddaughter of the original Van Helsing, and altogether the last of the Van Helsings), to steal a mystical treasure hidden in Dracula’s castle. Finn, of course, brings his known associates—a fun assortment of conmen and grifters of all kinds—as well as the kind of amoral attitude that puts him immediately at odds with Sledge. Lastly, the team enlists Tao Leu (or more accurately, he enlists himself), who is a 10-year-old boy with the gift of second sight and who might be the biggest scoundrel of them all.
