It’s Back On! Stephen King’s The Dark Tower Films & Companion Television Series

Will Javier Bardem play The Gunslinger Roland?

My obsession with Javier Bardem’s haircuts continues! Finally some new news about the stalled Ron Howard/ Brian Grazer adaptation of Stephen King’s epic The Dark Tower series. It looks like Warner Bros. has agreed to the proposed film trilogy with a companion television series as proposed by the famous film making duo. Let’s hope they keep it accurate. Javier Bardem is still in talks to play Roland Deschain, last of The Gunslingers in this eerie dark fantasy tale. Click the link above to get the history behind this project!

The Walking Dead

Did you guys see that??? Wow. That is all.

Image Expo Walking Dead Panel

So I was able to pull it together and get my rear down to Image Expo on this fine Saturday. I must say, it was refreshing to go to a comic book convention in Oakland for the first time since Wondercon moved over to San Francisco years ago.

At any rate, I was able to snag a ticket to the Walking Dead panel this afternoon and it was a blast! G4’s Chris Hardwick moderated the panel, although Robert Kirkman was seemed to have to reign his him in and get him to focus at times which was rather amusing. Actors Norman Reedus (Darryl) and Steve Yuen (Glenn) showed up fifteen minutes late and greeted the audience with fun snaps and a stink bomb which filled the entire room and an irritated Robert Kirkman confiscated them from the duo like a grouchy middle school teacher. Overall, we didn’t get much out of Kirkman about things to come for AMC’s The Walking Dead other than the tone of the past two episodes will continue and the show writers and producers want to get to characters from the comic book such as Michonne, Tyrese and The Governor soon. Oh yeah, Kirkman hinted that Darryl may be introduced in the comic book series shortly! It was good to connect with the creator and some of the cast in person. The panel wrapped with the audience and Kirkman goading Norman Reedus to assume his Murphy MacManus role from Boondock Saints and say, “Get your stupid fucking rope!”

Overall, I would say that Image Expo was really everything a real comicbook fan would want: Real comic books. Real comic book artists and writers. And the ability to get into panel discussions with relative ease. Artists alley had a bunch of really cool indie stuff. It’s great to see people out there doing what they love without making excuses as to why they can’t put themselves out there. It inspires me to get my own act together and begin working on something of my own for next year! I keep saying that, but each year I don’t is a year lost, so now is the time. I think I’ll go do some sketching right now. Maybe I’ll occasionally share/ inflict some of my work on you guys.

Thank you Image Comics for making this event a reality!

For anyone that has tomorrow Sunday February 26th free and want to do something fun, try to check out the last day of Image Expo. Tickets start at $20 and kids under 12 get in free with a paid adult.

Reason #476 Why You Love CM Punk

CM Punk lays a verbal GTS on Chris Brown

WWE’s reigning straight edge champion CM Punk took his twitter feud with Chris Brown to¬†YouTube¬†yesterday and boy does he have some fun things to say to Chris Brown’s behavior. With his razor sharp wit, CM Punk makes a punk of Chris Brown using only his words. I think this is an actual shoot and not something WWE has concocted. Thank you CM Punk!

Watch Danger 5!

Danger 5 trailer

While we’re on the subject of Nazis, if you haven’t already checked this series out, I highly recommend Danger 5! It’s a pretty cool retro series that makes me think of James Bond and Hogan’s Heroes. Danger 5 is pretty much all I would ever need in a tv series.
