Three hundred

This is going to be short and sweet because I am so late to the party with it. I have wanted to post on it for a while, ever since seeing it and then reading Jason and Ed’s posts on it, but other things got in the way. I think I’ll be ahead of the curve for the DVD release though, yeah?

I found the premise of writing a graphic novel about this event in history to be quite novel. I mean, how exactly did Frank Miller get about doing this as a project? This is a guy better known to the masses for Sin City, Robocop, Batman (comics) and Tank Girl (heh… well, the original work was better than the flick. Oh where have you gone Lori Petty?). I’m sure I could do some research on the web for this, but I’m a lazy blogger today and like I said, short and sweet.

And, again, being lazy (and potentially dumb to do so), I’m going to go off what I remember as th... Continue reading »

Fanboy Fodder 9.1

X-Men: Phoenix: Warsong #1 cover (Silvestri version)Quite possibly the first week ever that I read all the books I picked up. I’m sure it has a lot to do with only buying six books total. I resisted the urge to pick up G.I. Joe: Scarlett Declassified. While the Snake Eyes Declassified mini was good, I don’t think this one would be as good and especially not for $5 a pop.

Out of curiosity, and a Michael Turner cover, I picked up Justice League of America #0 which must have a come out a few weeks ago. It gave quick clips of JLA history, but wasn’t easy to understand if you don’t know it, so I think they failed in their goal because I didn’t get it. Then again, they did get my money, so maybe they succeeded…

X-Men: Phoenix: Warsong #1 The first issue in a five issue mini that looks to pick up where the Endsong mini left off… I guess. You can see the Marc Silvestri cover here, which ... Continue reading »

Watchmen

News about the Watchmen film adaptation in this week’s Entertainment Weekly:

The on-again, off-again film version of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ classic comic is on again, with director Zack Snyder, who’s got one graphic-novel adaptation — the just-wrapped 300 — under his belt.

I’m sure if they ever get it made, Moore won’t want his name attached. At least I already own the GN, so I can read this one ahead of time.

I should maybe read 300 since it’s yet another Frank Miller GN…

V for Vendetta

V for Vendetta movie poster

It might seem like I am following the Joe model on Scooby Speak; blowing my load of content all at once and taking a rest instead of pacing myself with a steady stream. That’s not the case. I am in fact trying to make up for a couple weeks earlier in May when I didn’t post much of anything. Unfortunately, I am doing so with content that is basically stale before it hits the blogosphere since these movies are long gone from the local plex.

At least with V for Vendetta, I have good reason to have not posted earlier on it. After taking in the movie, I decided I wanted to read the graphic novel so that I might understand why Alan Moore wanted his name removed from the movie, per his usual M.O. So, it took me a while to finally remember to pick up the GN and then about a week to finally get thru it, not that the reading was slow mind you. Anyway, I completed that a c... Continue reading »
