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.
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.)

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.

Oi Oi Oi! You boys like 'Girl Talk'? If so, you downloaded the new platter yet? I was a massive fan of 'Feed the Animals' and I have to say, after one listen, I like it at least as much as "Feed.." Like any good nerd, I Even bought a T-Shirt!

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.

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?
