I will be in Baltimore for the comic-con at the Th3rdworld booth. We will be pushing the new Creature Feature v.1 as well as the Space Doubles graphic novel. I will also be bringing promotional material for Bullfinch, and maybe getting that Green Lantern T-shirt I’ve always wanted. Everyone has a superman or batman symbol somewhere but GL stamps nerd cred. right on ya.
This September I have cartoon work in the new Creature Feature from Th3rdworld Comics. The book contains 3.5 stories presented by Mike Raicht (drawn by me) put together by various writers and artists in the comics community. Feel free to head down to your local comic book store and pre-order if your interested. The book looks great and there are some nice reviews online. Just google Creature Feature or hit the Th3rdworld link on the right side of this page.
I saw the new Batman flick this morning, and it is a runaway freight train of awesome. This movie should never be viewed by anyone under the age of 15 (sorry Mitchell), it’s just too intense. The action, the twists to every scene involving the Joker, and violence are very adult in sensibility. Removing actual blood and gore from the violence almost makes those scenes scarier working through the prism of your imagination mixed with everything you know of the Joker.
All of the actors excelled, especially Ledger, and I felt everyone got enough screen time. Though I guess they would have to at a run time of over 2.5 hours. Real life special effects mixed with hardcore cops vs. crime storytelling and a little comic book flair make for a damn fine movie.
