In keeping with insane logic and how frequently violence is deemed more appropriate than nudity, I figured I’d hit you with Invincible bleeding heavily just to introduce what could be the craziest thing I’ve seen today. A new Image Comics teaser has been released with the tagline “THIS IS THE SHAPE OF THE UNIVERSE”. And you know what? I couldn’t be more confused. Check the full thing to see something I never expected. Reminder: NSFW, I guess. It’s impossible to tell what bothers people nowadays.

Seriously, look at that. Look at the silhouette. It’s like his hair has is happy to see me. Oh man, and that dog. You know, what’s-his-name. Rin Tin Tin, or whatever. That face. And its eyes are so sinister. That reminds me, didn’t Tintin have tiny, soulless eyes? Or was that Annie I’m thinking of? I don’t know, and to be honest I don’t really care. Sure, I wouldn’t mind finally going back and reading the Tintin comics, but outside of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost being in this film I have no strong desire to see it. To be frank, motion-capture is my least favorite style right now. I’m not a fan, and I haven’t been since Beowulf. Maybe we could have seen a nice stop-motion movie? Just figured I’d take the time to comment. Sure as hell did plenty of that for the Smurfs.
Look, I can’t tell you what to do. But I’m going to try. Tonight is the first episode of The Walking Dead on AMC, at 10PM. Watch it. Do yourself that favor. Especially if you have no plans for Halloween. Come on man, it’ll be scary. You’ll be terrified, I can practically guarantee it. Don’t believe me? I’ve attached the first five minutes of tonight’s episode. Take a peak and do what you will. Meaning watch it tonight.
I’m back! Again! To do Webcomic of the Week. Again! Happy Halloween, let’s see what’s cooking this week.
Because The Walking Dead is premiering tonight, I figured a good topic for this week would be zombies. The Zombie Hunters is a comic by Jenny Romanchuk, on a website managed by her husband Greg. Always cool to see couples working together to get comics out to the masses. Anyway, The Zombie Hunters is a very intriguing examination of the zombie apocalypse and how people manage to come together to try to fight off the evil, reanimated corpses that are all around. The cast manages to stay semi-secluded on an artificial island. While some details might seem appealing to the average zombie fan that wants to see the end days come in just this fashion, here’s a problem: the characters are infected with a dormant version of the zombie infection, meaning that as soon as they die, whenever that may be, they’ll become a zombie.
I’m back, folks, after what I thought would never happen – a missed Webcomic of the Week – only now returning because the city of New York drained from my soul last weekend. Not a comment on the city, just how easy it is for my soul to be drained. I should really patch that leak.
So catching up, I was at NYCC last weekend. I got the chance to meet a lot of cool people, not the least of which was a man by the name of Jonathan Rosenberg. Being the nice guy he is, he talked to me for a lot longer than he had to (dude was friendly, what can I say?) I bought volume one of his webcomic Goats, he signed it, sketched in it, and it was pretty awesome. Currently, his webcomic Goats is on hiatus. Therefore, while I totally recommend you read Goats, I’ll be getting back to Goats later in my WotW recommendations. This week I’ll be covering the webcomic he’s working on currently, Scenes From A Multiverse.
I just got my copy of Johnny Wander Volume 1 in the mail, and I just read it, and it’s incredibly awesomely amazing. Even though I’ve read it all before it was pretty much like reading it for the first time, meaning lots of me laughing and enjoying the hell out of it. But you know what’s better than volume 1? Volume 1 with a signed foil on the first page, a top hat drawn onto the Maw on the inside cover (that I specifically asked for, thank you) AND a sticker AND a Johnny Wander card. I had actually been waiting a long time for the first collection to come out, and I can safely say it was even better than I expected it to be.
