a little greek?

Just started reading Greek Street. Have to say it always bugs me when strippers become founts of information and literature. I did like the $1 price point of issue 1, and heard Peter Milligan speak a little about it at NY Comicon on the Vertigo panel.

Writing about Vertigo reminds me that Google has different themes and Vertigo is one of them- will have to look for it!

Have several weeks of comics waiting. Just read Air #10, JSA, and Streets of Gotham 1.

New comic to check out!

Daddy's little girl by Arcana Comics

Sometimes our comic interests cross into life- a high school friend now in LA married a girl, who became Playboy's Miss March this year- and is the model for this comic.

I love the Atlantic City setting. In this panel, my HS friend Steve becomes a character:

Looks like interesting art, a crime story set in Jersey- let's all give it some love! And if you are going to SDCC, go meet them!

Thor's first love to secret identities

comic films--
More of 'ol Natalie Portman in comic (V for Vendetta) and sci fi (Star Wars) based films-
Natalie Portman set to star in Thor
I saw her in person at the Daily Show once. She's really short and very skinny, intelligent but a little flat in personality I think.

Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern

Again, a familiar comic face (Wolverine as Deadpool) returns as GL. I'm 'just not as into him' as many girls, but he seems to be gobbling up screen time and parts (along with wife Scarlett).

The Gotham Group has optioned screen rights to "Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman's Co-Creator Joe Shuster.

print comics--
Wednesday comics
Have only read a few pages but wow! The color panels and size are really striking. Hard to say how keeping up with so many storylines will go for the writing, but we'll see.

Ennis: More Boys
I'm happy to say we've expanded the run of The Boys to 70 rather than 60 issues, just to fit in all the stuff that's been occurring to me over the last couple of years. There'll also be two more miniseries after Herogasm, one featuring Hughie and the other Butcher.

5 days of Torchwood

"Children of Earth" will start airing in on BBC America July 20h.

Personally, I really don't like the idea of one blast of Torchwood for the Children of the Earth series. Five days in July. Have been awaiting the new 5 episodes since seeing Eve (Gwen) at NY Comicon in Februrary.

And John Barrowman (Captain Jack) doesn't like a "Torchwood miniseries" too much either.

Season 4 is ready and waiting...

Well, I can always watch my videos and read these posts to get excited...
