First up, go check out my new toy blog called Toy Chest Central.
I really enjoyed this CBR interview with Judd Winick about Justice League: Generation Lost. I haven’t read the last few issues of that book, but I was digging what I read. I’m excited to catch up in trades. I’m getting really excited to see Sucker Punch. The trailer’s been all over TV and then you’ve got these awesome retro pin-up style posters as seen on /Film. As you might expect, I’m a big fan of Jason Chalker‘s James Bond posters. You can see the one for Dr. No here and follow the link to see his take on Goldfinger.
I’m disappointed to hear that DC’s First Wave line is getting the axe. I liked that they didn’t try to cram characters like The Spirit or Doc Savage into the regular DCU even going the other way and including different versions of DC characters in this new pocket universe. The problem to my mind is that they expanded too quickly and had trouble getting the First Wave series itself out on time. Bummer. (via The Beat)
I haven’t been watching Jimmy Fallon much, so I’m thankful to Rolling Stone for posting a link to this video of Bell Biv DeVoe and The Roots performing “Poison” on his show. This song took on new significance when I got to Wizard and started hearing it at the bar every time we went out. Then, even more a few years later when I saw Skeletor perform it in Philly. Good stuff.
I finally got around to reading this Rolling Stone piece written by Mikal Gilmore about hanging out with The Clash in 1979. Then RS talked to Gilmore about talking to The Clash back then. Both are worthwhile reads.
Maybe we’ll finally get Kill Bill The Whole Bloody Affair now that /Film says it’ll be playing at the New Bev in LA. I’ve been holding off on buying those flicks, which I love, in hopes of getting that version.
