Neal Adams Presents “Batman vs Elmer Fudd” by Tom King and Lee Weeks

Posted in Art, Comics, Crime, and Humor

Batman vs Elmer Fudd.

Sounds stupid, right?  No way in the world this could be an excellent comic book, right?

Wrong.  Way wrong.

Written by Tom King with art by Lee Weeks, Batman vs Elmer Fudd is an amazingly good comic.  Since it sold out of it’s initial print run, if you want to get a copy you’re probably out of luck.  However comics legend Neal Adams has created a video homage that is worth a watch.

Posted in Celebs, Comics, Movies, and Z-View

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

Director: James Gunn

Screenplay: James Gunn, Dan Abnett based on the Marvel comics

Stars: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel (voice), Bradley Cooper (voice), Michael Rooker,  Sylvester Stallone, Jeff Goldblum and Kurt Russell.

The Pitch: “Time to make another Guardians of the Galaxy!”

Tagline: You only get one chance to save the galaxy twice.

The Overview: Beware of Spoilers…

Although the Guardians are now considered heroes, they earn their living as mercenaries.  On the run after barely escaping with their lives from a job gone wrong (Thanks, Rocket!), they meet a being claiming to be Peter’s father.  Although he/it may be Peter’s dad, something’s not right…

Stallone’s cameo is a bonus!

Dan Panosian, Down-But-Not-Out Boxers and “Killing Me Softly”

Posted in Art, Comics, Crime, and Movies

Dan Panosian recently sat down (or perhaps he stood up) for an interview with Adventures in Poor Taste to talk about his new series Slots.

I’ve always enjoyed Panosian’s art and he’s a great guy so there’s that.  In the interview I discovered that Dan’s a fan of the film Killing Them Softly.  I thought I was the only one.  So there’s another reason to like Dan.  If you check out the interview, I’ll bet you’ll find a couple for yourself.

Guillermo del Toro & Ron Perlman’s Hellboy vs Neil Marshall & David Harbour’s Hellboy

Posted in Art, Celebs, Comics, Horror, and Movies

This shot of David Harbour as Hellboy is making the rounds because of how well it looks to capture Mignola’s Hellboy.

Some folks are upset that Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro won’t be coming back to complete their Hellboy trilogy.  I was disappointed as well, but that won’t stop me from seeing Neil Marshall’s darker, rated-R version.

I’ve also seen complaints that Harbour’s Hellboy looks like Perlman’s Hellboy.  Ok.  Let’s think about that for a second.  They’re both playing the same character, so shouldn’t they look similar?

I’m a fan of Perlman and Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy and hope to be of  Marshall & Harbour’s Hellboy as well.

Hellboy directed by Neil Marshall, starring David Harbour, Mila Jovovich, Ian McShane and Daniel Dae Kim premieres January 11, 2019.

Dan Panosian Talks Slots!

Posted in Art, and Comics

You can say this about the life of Stanley Dance: he did it his way. Unfortunately, his way never took getting old into account. Now, the former boxer is on his last legs, looking for redemption … but he’ll settle for going down swinging.

Roll the dice with artist/writer Dan Panosian as he creates, in his new series Slots, a bold and breathtaking vision of Las Vegas, where everything old can become new, and superstition influences how the chips fall.

Dan Panosian talks Slots with Byron Brewer at Dynamic Forces.  What are ya waitin’ for?  Click Over!
