David Lynch meets Spiderman

So Warren Ellis held a contest for people to make movie posters, imagining a Spiderman movie directed by David Lynch. The results are here. There aren't any on the first page, but click through the other 7 pages - some really good ones in there.

soon-to-be newly reprinted Jodorowsky comics from Humanoids

Humanoids will be reprinting a bunch of cool Jodorowsky, Moebius, and other European comics in the coming months; From Jodo in December is 'Madwoman of the Sacred Heart' and The 'Incal Classic Collection' (which is a very limited series and looks amazing.) In January is 'Weapons of the Metabarons' and in February is Volume 3 of the Technopriests series (I only have 1 and 2 and thought it might have stayed that way if not for this reprint.)

Game of Thrones

I'm not sure why, but I'm not all that excited about this show coming out. Maybe because Martin is dragging his feet on finishing the series, or maybe it's just epic fatigue. I think maybe I can only get excited about an epic story in one format. The Lord of the Rings is an exception, I guess, though I never really went crazy about the movies. But I don't really have any interest in the Wheel of Time comics, and I'm not jazzed about seeing the new Harry Potter movie (though I probably will). I hope they never make Asimov's Foundation series into a comic, movie, or tv show. They did a radio production of it, but that was so condensed it wasn't too threatening.

Strange Interview With Charles Burns

Have you guys read "X'ed Out" yet? I read it in Barnes & Noble the other day. It was pretty good - looking forward to the next one.

Serge Gainsbourg la chanson de Prévert

Do either of you guys listen to Serge Gainsbourg? Have any recommendations of his stuff (other than this nice song)?

Fire Chilly

On my way up to the cabin this weekend, I saw a bar near Mille Lacs with a big sign out front and I saw the word "Fire" on it plus another word that didn't register. I thought it looked nice and cozy and must have an inviting fire blazing inside. Then I looked more carefully and the other word was "Childress". I thought that was funny.

perhaps he's listening to this

Thor's Playlist

Since this was the variant cover to Thor #601, and this is our blog post #601, I had to post this. I snagged this comic last Free Comic Book Day (not for free, but it was on sale). There's some debate over what Thor is listening to on his iPod. Wagner? AC/DC? Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard?

Democracy Is Coming

Not my favorite song of Leonard Cohen's, but apropos for voting day. Listen, as we welcome our fresh batch of lizard people overlords.
