Dec 15th 2011 11:11AM I desire the very tiny robot.
Mar 3rd 2011 12:39PM I'm amused by Palmiotti's response to Smith about Jack Kirby, because it doesn't come off as jovial or friendly to me. More like "I will beat you until you can see."
Feb 24th 2011 2:37PM That 80s profile of M. McDuffie was something I first came across in the early 90s. I didn't read it at that time, because I was all about the actual comic, even if it was an older one my brother had collected. Later, I came back to it and I was stunned by how funny he made the profile itself. And I remember thinking "Boy, I hope that guy kept being successful. He sounds great."
Even though we lost him too soon, I think we should be glad for all he gave us.
Jan 25th 2011 12:42PM I'm seriously tempted to pick up the Swamp Thing collection. However, it's been a long time since I read those issues, but I thought two magicians are incinerated in the story. Or did one of them come back so it doesn't count?
Jan 14th 2011 12:55PM I have to admit, that "Why wouldn't I?" line in the page you linked hit me like a punch in the gut.
Jan 11th 2011 10:28AM This sounds a lot like the kind of idea you'd throw out to make your friends laugh, but never seriously want to see. Interesting to look at, but hard to imagine as a good series in real life.
The art and concept is still interesting, though. And if you're going to do a young version of these characters, an animated series would be much less problematic than a live action version.
Nov 12th 2010 3:18PM If I remember correctly, you were invited to the filming of a superhero porn parody.
If they make that offer again with enough lead time, maybe you could do both of these together?
Nov 10th 2010 12:43PM I like the idea that this is actually just a pitch that accidentally got sent to the marketing department instead of editorial. "We're not going to kill Spider-man, that's just WHAT THE HELL IS THIS DOING ONLINE?!?"
Oct 14th 2010 1:47PM I think the problem with Scrooge as a hoarder is that he's hoarding things that are either actual currency, or would easily sell for millions. The world's first teddy bear would be pretty much priceless. And when he dies, his relatives will inherit billions of dollars. Not the same as having to toss 30 years of the New York Times after your granduncle kicks the bucket.
Unless he suffocates in his money pool. Then, they might not want to keep all of the money.
Sep 28th 2010 11:43AM Honestly, I'll take any costume redesign for Super Grover if it means less attention given to Elmo the Mentally Disturbed.
