This is almost too smart. io9 has an article called the 10 Architectural Sins of Superhero Bases. Funny, clever stuff. One example? Seen above. No kitchens.
We’ve been coming up with an angle that is really strong. I am a fan of Peter David, Pak and Loeb but I like very much what individual writers and artists have done through the decades. I only gravitate to “monster” superheroes- (Blade, Hellboy, Deadman, Hulk-) because I have no interest on the straight ones -even when I’ve been offered the keys to the kingdom.
That’s Nerdalicious shows us that Williams Sonoma continues their partnership with Marvel offering these new spatulas.
It’s almost the beginning and the end of a phase for me. It’s the beginning of working in America, and we’ve managed to put together a range of projects, but I think over a period of time I’ll slowly pull out. Otherwise you’re exposed to the market. Once I’ve completely finished on a couple of films, such as The Dark Knight Rises and Mad Max, you’ll probably see me fade away. I might f*ck off completely. It’s like laying a field down with crops — you need to leave the field, man, sometimes, so you can grow sh*t again. I’ll fuck off if I have to. Sometimes you need to know when to leave the casino.
Gamma Squad has a great new gallery of cosplayers up on their site. That’s just one example above.
We’ve heard so much about a hypothetical Wonder Woman movie over the past few weeks, it’s nice to read something about the character that’s ACTUALLY happening. io9 spoke to the writers of the new DC Wonder Woman series about where it’s going to go.
Mark Millar did a Kick Ass interview, in both senses of the phrase, with the Los Angeles Times and addition to talking about Kick Ass 2 the movie, he spoke about Kick Ass 3, which would end the comic book series:
Yes, “Kick-Ass” is a trilogy of books and there’s going to be two volumes of Hit-Girl too. And then that’s it. The whole, very complete, story has been in my head since the beginning. “Kick-Ass 2? ends on a bit of a cliffhanger and this all gets resolved in “Kick-Ass 3.” I’ve known the last page of “Kick-Ass 3? since I wrote Page 1 of the first series. Part of me loves the idea of this running and running like Spider-Man, but I also love the idea of it being finite and never being written or drawn by anyone other than me and Johnny. We can collect it into a nice box set, and hopefully it’ll just become a little classic that people discover in the future like the “Godfather” movies or “Lord of the Rings.” It would be easy to spin it off into lots of different books and hire other people to write them. It would be fast money because it outsells pretty much anything else out there right now. The first hardback, internationally, has sold almost a million copies everywhere from the USA to Israel to Japan and Italy and we’ve done five printings on the first issue of “Kick-Ass 2? alone, beating almost everything at Marvel and DC. But you have to stick to your guns and let a story have a natural length. You can’t get greedy. Just because something sells doesn’t mean you should milk it to death. “Kick-Ass 3? will absolutely be the last book and it’s a good ending. Plus, I’m lazy. If I have a choice between writing “Kick-Ass 4? or nipping off down at the pub I’m always going to choose the pub.
