First off, rest in peace Macho Man Randy Savage. You were always entertaining and as my buddy Sean T. Collins has been known to say, his delivery as Bonesaw is the best thing in Spider-Man.
Secondly, I’m glad that whole rapture thing didn’t happen. I like how James Kochalka handled it on American Elf.
Interviewing Jeremy Haun for CBR about Artifacts was a good time.
I really enjoyed reading Alex Noriega‘s journal comic about going to Canada on Stuff No One Told Me.Holy nards, The Autumn Society‘s doing a Ninja Turtles art show, that’s awesome. I love this piece by Mike Hiscox. He should be drawing an ass kicking TMNT comic RIGHT NOW!
Um, Dave Rapoza‘s TMNT artwork for the same show is kind of mindblowingly amazing. I really want that Metalhead one hanging in my future office. Or, well, all of them. I don’t know much about Mike Sterling of Progressive Ruin fame as I’ve just recently started reading his blog, I do know one thing: dude loves Swamp Thing. He talked about the origins of his fandom in a recent post that was interesting enough on its own, made even mores thanks to him telling me about Video Comics, a show on Nickelodeon that zoomed in on panels and had actors doing the voices. That’s awesome!
A TV version of The Transporter? Could be fun, especially with former Prison Breaker Chris Vance as the lead. (via /Film)
I love the idea that Frank Zappa and Jack Kirby were talking about collaborating. Seems like it should have resulted in something crazier than a romance comic strip though, just saying. (via Robot 6)
I wish I got as excited about anything as this kid gets about the Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World credits. (via Edgar Wright)
I say this with as much respect as I can muster, but if David Gilmour doesn’t get over his bullshit and go on tour with Nick Mason and Roger Waters, I might have to hunt him down and punch him in the junk. A Pink Floyd reunion wouldn’t only be amazing, but draw me out of my seemingly interminable concert hiatus. (Rolling Stone)How could I not link to Phil Noto‘s drawing of Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation?
As always, I enjoyed Ron Marz’s latest Shelf Life on CBR. This one’s about going back and writing Kyle Rayner and Crossgen comics.
Wired‘s look at secret passages is amazing and takes me back to my fascination with such things going back to my youthful days watching Webster on TV.
I’m not the biggest Mick Jagger/Rolling Stones fan in the world, but I’m kind of interested in his new supergroup Super Heavy which consists of Joss Stone, Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and A.R. Rahman. (via Rolling Stone, again)
