For Tomorrow's Comic Shoppe-Discussing the Obvious: The "Kick Ass" film, Our Weekly Comic Faves & Daryll B's Words of Wisdom!
Hello again comic and pulp fiction fans! The Comic Shoppe will be open for the business of heavy graphic novel/sci-fi/fantasy discussion tomorrow at 7pm eastern. Join Dburt, Daryll and Max as they discuss the following: Marvel's Kick Ass movie performed below industry expectations but will word of mouth boost ticket sales?; more on our favorite comic books from the previous week and in taking cues from The Shoppe's Daryll B, we will also add to the discourse the issues brought up in his weekly Afronerd blog entry:
Interesting news from C2E2 starting with:
1. We all wondered what the Disney/Marvel business would mean to their animation division, well wonder no more. My problem with these plans is Iron Man is coming back but Spectacular Spider-Man and Wolverine & The X-Men is out??? Come on Marvel!!! http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=25819
2. Walking Dead adds Brandon Routh and Jeffery DeMunn to the show. Can you say must watch? http://www.spinoffonline.com/2010/04/17/the-green-miles-jeffrey-demunn-joins-the-walking-dead/ and http://blog.newsarama.com/2010/04/12/the-walking-dead-series-just-got-a-little-bit-super/
3. O come on...they can't mess up the Jonah Hex movie can they? http://www.spinoffonline.com/2010/04/16/is-warners-jonah-hexed/
4. Can you say Hellboy 3? http://splashpage.mtv.com/2010/04/18/mike-mignola-hellboy-3-hellboy-2-guillermo-del-toro/
5. I personally liked Kick-Ass more than the comic....but I absolutely LOVED The Losers. Iron Man 2, the bar is set high for you once again.
6. I have heard of stupid lawsuits but this is the first I heard about Jeff Smith's Bone trying to been banned from libraries in Minnesota. This mother is waaaay off her rocker. If anything this is the book series to try and get kids INVOLVED in comics. http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=25816
7. Heinberg, Cheung, YOUNG AVENGERS! http://www.newsarama.com/comics/c2e2-avengers-children-crusade-100417.html
8. I may not like some of the paths taken but it is hard not to get a little geeked up for the Flash and Green Lantern plans. http://www.newsarama.com/comics/c2e2-flash-green-lantern-100418.html
9. Vampire Jubilee??? Say what??? http://www.newsarama.com/comics/Marvel-X-Men-Teasers-100409.html
10. Kevin Conroy vs Christian Bale? I going with Conroy...lol http://tomztoyz.blogspot.com/2010/04/video-kevin-conroy-disses-christian.html
11. DC vs Trade Waiting? http://blog.newsarama.com/2010/04/16/dc-hopes-to-push-back-against-trade-waiting-will-it-work/
12. More Amanda Waller on Smallville!!!! Pam Grier has been awesome...and that confrontation with John Jones..totally hot!
13. I had worries about the New Doctor Who, with the premiere this past weekend consider them a little eased but the new companion may be the most annoying at first glance.
Enjoy Afronerd readers!
