Trailer Watch: Captain America, Sympathy for Delicious and more

I usually save Trailer Watch for Friday, but this week we had such a glut that I felt a midweek update was appropriate. We’ve got action, drama, family and raunchy, adult comedy, so let’s get this started. First up, we have an adaptation of the Newberry winning classic, Mr. Popper’s Penguins. And honestly, it looks […]

Trisha’s Take: How to get the most out of one day at a convention, part 2

Picking up where I left off, I didn’t stay very long in the southern end of the Javitz Center because the one panel I’d RSVP’d for was in the northern end of the hall with the majority of the large publishers, game companies, and stores. When I registered as a member of the Press, I […]

Trisha’s Link of the Day: Well played, Rob Liefeld

When I was a nascent comics fan in the mid-1990s, one of the most important things I learned about the art was that Rob Liefeld can’t draw feet. Since then, I’ve learned that the former Marvel Comics wunderkind who created X-Force and one of the founding members of Image Comics also can’t draw women, men, […]

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: Coming Back Next Season!

Rather than focusing this week on one upcoming project, I’m thinking it’s time for me to tackle this news of the announcements of two shows returning soon and put a few minds (much like mine) at ease.

Trailer Watch: Interactive Scott Pilgrim vs The World Trailer

Yeah I know, you might be getting sick of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World related posts, but movies that so personify geek/music/twenty-something culture don’t come along very often, at least not with the pedigree that this one has. A new i-trailer for the film is up, and it’s a great introduction to the series if […]

Trailer Watch: Sucker Punch and our first full look at The Goon

My own computer troubles continue, but Zack Snyder might want to back away from his for a moment as we have finally gotten a look at his anime-reference-and-CGI-drenched Sucker Punch. Set in the 1950s, Sucker Punch follows Babydoll (Emily Browning) who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her […]

Keeping Tabs, SDCC Edition: Helen Mirren loves Harvey Pekar, and more

Until a miracle happens and I’m able to justify spending gobs of money to go, it’s highly unlikely that I’m going to be able to provide the kind of coverage of Comic Con (aka “Nerd Prom”) or any other major geekfest that you deserve. However, what I can do now and going forward is to […]

RIP: American Splendor creator Harvey Pekar (1939-2010)

When news broke on Monday that American Splendor creator Harvey Pekar was found dead in his Cleveland Heights, Ohio home, I wrote via Twitter: “I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting him in person, but [Pekar] is and will always be an inspiration to struggling creators.” Pekar is best-known for the pioneering comics series American […]

Keeping Tabs: Avatar sequel unlikely to win animation Oscars, and other stories

The newest change in the rules of the category, amongst other rules changes, were announced, […]
