Comics: "THE MAXX" BY SAM KIETH (MTV ODDITIES)
Photobucket

I really loved the comic and that show and it's unique simple style. The animated series is out on YouTube now. Not the best quality, but it's not out on dvd and the VHS tape is sort of rare.

Wikipedia: "The Maxx is an American comic book and character created by Sam Kieth and published by Image Comics. The comic book spawned an animated series that aired on the MTV network.

The series follows the adventures of the titular hero in the real world and in an alternate reality, referred to as The Outback. In the real world the Maxx is a vagrant while in the Outback he is the protector of the Jungle Queen. The Jungle Queen is similar to the Maxx in that she also exists in the real world as Julie Winters, a freelance social worker who often bails the Maxx out of jail. While the Maxx is aware of the Outback, Julie is not, though it is integral to the story of both the Maxx and Julie."

Sam Kieth's website seems to be dead.

Comics: AQUAMAN DOESN'T WORK!
Aquaman Pictures, Images and Photos NPR: Baggin' On the Sea King, or: The Comedy Meme that Ate Atlantis "Thanks to you, said meme itself — the very act of pointing out that the highly specific nature of Aquaman's power-set would logically circumscribe his effectiveness as a deterrent of crime and administrator of justice (i.e., "The guy talks to FISH!") — is now officially the hoariest, hackiest arrow in the quiver of pop-culture commentary.
Qua humor, it is to our Internet Age what "And what is the deal with airline peanuts?" was to the skinny-necktie 90's.

It is not remotely fresh; it is fresh's antithesis, its polar opposite, its mortal enemy. It's what steps onto the Enterprise wearing a goatee after a transporter malfunction strands Fresh Himself in the anti-matter universe.

Comics: 75 COMICS BEING MADE INTO MOVIES RIGHT NOW
Denofgeek.com knows them all.

Red Sonja? Nobody wants to see that.
Tintin? Stupid idea. Only works in the original medium.
Witchblade? Again?

Submariner? You gotta be fword kidding? There's an old rule in the comic industry: Aquaman doesn't work! No, "caught up in an ecological war" doesn't work either. And the Submariner is just like Aquaman (except for he fought in WWII and he has cute little wings on his feet).

I wanna see the Jonah Hex movie though...

Comics: WHEN LEX LUTHOR WAS PRESIDENT...
Remember the year 2000? Lex Luthor was president in the universe that Superman and his buddies live in. The storyline was more realistic than Sarah Palin becoming....
Photobucket Wikipedia: "Deciding to turn to politics, Luthor becomes President of the United States, winning the election on a platform of promoting technological progress. His first action as president was to take a proposed moratorium on fossil-based fuels to the U.S. Congress. Luthor is assisted by the extreme unpopularity of the previous administration's mishandling of the Gotham City earthquake crisis. After six months, Gotham is restored and rejoins America. Ironically, Batman ultimately learns that the entire debacle was the fault of Luthor alone as he attempted to take control of Gotham by forging deeds for the land in his name, which results in Bruce Wayne severing all commercial ties between the U.S. government and his company, Wayne Enterprises, in protest of Luthor's election as President. Luthor responds in turn by arranging for the murder of Wayne's lover, Vesper Fairchild, and framing Wayne for the murder.
(...)
A cadre of superheroes eventually break ranks from the Justice League to oppose Luthor. Batman, who had previously forbade any attempt to unseat Luthor from office by force, led the storming of the White House. This was predicated by an attempt on Luthor's part to link Superman to a kryptonite asteroid that is hurtling toward Earth."

Comics: DECISIONS - WHO WILL SUPERMAN VOTE FOR?
Photobucket

Even Superman will vote in the elections 2008. A new comic series deals with the real political views of DC Comics' fictional supericons.

From an Newsarama Interview: DAN DIDIO ON DCU: DECISIONS

"Dan DiDio: We’re entering a very interesting election year this year, and what I think is important about it is that it’s that there’s this excitement – a sense of “building”…there’s change in the air in regards to the whole political process that’s at play in the United States. What we want to do is tap into that emotion, and tell a story that plays in the DC Universe with our characters, while using the political backdrop we’re seeing now to help to define our characters better. (...) For the first time, we’ll be having our characters make true political stands in regards to their leanings, as well as what motivates them to be heroes, and what they believe is necessary for their world and their country to move in the direction they believe to be the right one. That’s the larger story.

NRAMA: What’s the inciting incident here?

DD: An assassin in the midst of the heroes that’s basically trying to disrupt and destroy the entire political process. In the opening sequence of the story, there is an assassination attempt on one of the candidates, which brings several of the heroes into the fold once they realize the scope of the conspiracy and more importantly, the impact that it would have on the government and the country. As the heroes are motivated and start to react to the assassination attempts, they start to express their own political beliefs, and start to discuss amongst themselves the importance of the process, and their role in the process.
(...)
NRAMA: So, as in our world, the platforms of the candidates end up touching everyone’s lives in one way or another, that’s not different in a world with superheroes – most likely the platforms mention or include superheroes.

DD: Right. And just like in our world, there are moderate beliefs, there are conservative beliefs, there are liberal beliefs. There are Republicans and Democrats. The process and what the various political beliefs and parties stand for remain the same. We’ll be exploring those beliefs as they exist within the DC Universe."

Comics: SAVAGE DRAGON SUPPORTS "THAT ONE"
Photobucket

"The Savage Dragon" is a cop and a superhero. For some reason he looks like a dragon...

Themoment.com "Artist Erik Larsen is pleased with his story, which will mention Obama, though the senator will not make an appearance in the issue. 'He’s not slugging bad guys or anything like that — although that would be cool,' Larsen says. The comic does, however, include McCain supporters. But don’t be confused. Savage Dragon definitely leans Democrat — a cover dating back to the last presidential campaign showed Mr. Dragon taking a swing at President Bush."

Downey Jr. in an interview: "I loved 'The Prestige' but didn't understand 'The Dark Knight'. Didn't get it, still can't tell you what happened in the movie, what happened to the character and in the end they need him to be a bad guy. I'm like, 'I get it. This is so high brow and so f—king smart, I clearly need a college education to understand this movie.' You know what? Fuck DC comics."

Comics: ELTINGVILLE - THE PILOT EPISODE
Photobucket Photobucket

I've always been a fan of Evan Dorkin. Always! I read "Milk & Cheese" before it was even printed on paper. I even had that t-shirt Dorkin did for those funny punkers called "All you can Eat". And "Dork" is the funniest comicbook ever. EVER!!! It was funnier than "Hate" back when "Hate" was still one of the funniest books ever.

Don't forget to visit Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer's House of Fun in case you have no idea what I'm talking about.

Anyway, geeks, imagine a cartoon based on a series out of "Dork"! Oh, you heard about it already and you saw it on YouTube yourself the other day, but then again you were to busy sending out virtual Star Wars action figures to all your Facebook friends and you forgot to watch it. Well.... You can watch it over here!!!

Wikipedia: "Welcome to Eltingville" is the name of a comedy cartoon based on the Eltingville stories in Evan Dorkin's comic book Dork!. The pilot episode, titled "Bring me the Head of Boba Fett", premiered March 1, 2002, on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block. (...)
The pilot introduces the four members of the Eltingville Club (...). It begins with a game of Dungeons and Dragons, where they are introduced as losers even in their own fantasy world. The boys then go through all the nerd clichés... lusting after science fiction babes (like Denise Crosby), sneaking into horror movies, collecting superhero and science fiction merchandise, and of course, going to their local comic book store."

Comics: BOOK: "OUR GODS WEAR SPANDEX - THE SECRET HISTORY OF COMIC BOOK HEROES" BY CHRISTOPHER KNOWLES
Photobucket

You shall not underestimate what is written in this book! It could have more depth, but it's an excellent read on Google Books. Voransicht des Buches - Read it on Google Books:

"Was Superman's arch nemesis Lex Luthor based on Aleister Crowley? Can Captain Marvel be linked to the Norse god Thor? In Our Gods Wear Spandex, Christopher Knowles answers these questions and brings to light many other intriguing links between superheroes and the enchanted world of estoerica. Occult students and comic-book fans alike will discover countless fascinating connections, from the fact that like DC Comics editor Julius Schwartz started his career as H.P. Lovecraft's agent, to the tantalizing influence of Madame Blavatsky's Theosophy on the birth of comics, and the Gnosticism of Superman."

Comics: HITLER'S DISNEY DRAWINGS
Photobucket

"The director of a Norwegian museum claimed yesterday to have discovered cartoons drawn by Adolf Hitler during the Second World War.

William Hakvaag, the director of a war museum in northern Norway, said he found the drawings hidden in a painting signed "A. Hitler" that he bought at an auction in Germany.

He found coloured cartoons of the characters Bashful and Doc from the 1937 Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which were signed A.H., and an unsigned sketch of Pinocchio as he appeared in the 1940 Disney film."
