    I have watched the movie 6 times now, and it was O'Malley's commentary with Edgar Wright that really convinced me to read the books. the amount of attention that went into the film is incredible. A lot of the different stuff in the movie is based on O'Malley's original notes, since they started pre-production on the movie when only book 2 had been released.

    There is a midnight screening of Scott Pilgrim at the New Beverly on April 15
    http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/167725

    Its not guaranteed, but Wright, O'malley, Cera, and many other of the cast members are likely to show. They did a screening tour around LA and showed it during the month long Wright Stuff screenings, with lots of guests at every show often doing Q&As until ungodly hours of the morning.

    I went to one of the more tame screenings at the Egyptian where Wright, O'Malley, and Cera participated in a q&a curated by Guillermo del Toro, which went super in depth to the influence of the books and movies, as well as discussing how the film represents a subset of a generation that are often overlook. And del Toro was a fucking riot. So passionate. I met Mary Elizabeth Winstead in the lobby too. Such a fun night.

    Movie corner and hey, comic books collide.

    That whole thing is (or at least was) available online, and yeah it's awesome. I wish Del Toro would do some Kevin Smith style speaking tours.

    I just finished reading this series;



    I had resisted it for a long time because of how ridiculous and dated the character looks, but it was really an awesome read. It's about a man from another dimension who is stranded on earth after losing his memory. He learns about the different faces of humanity through run ins with a right wing survivalist, a stunt woman, a suicidal family man, a Group of children, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange all the while being chased by monsters from his home dimension. It's loose, wild, surreal, full of existentialist babble. It reminds me of Heavy Metal without the reliance on boobs, or the type of animation the MTV aired in the mid 90s. Oh, and the art is fantastic. Not the best thing ever, really light on exposition and still heavy handed, but definitely worth a read.

    My roommate is going to Wondercon in SF next weekend to try and pitch his first comic. He put his pitch issue up on Demonoid for people to check out, so I figured I'd post the link here.

    I know nothing about comics, however I did do some comic card collecting when I was younger. That being said, Im gonna name drop.

    Bill Sienkiewicz



    His whole collection of artwork in the 94' Fleer Ultra series, is something special.

    His oil paintings, acrylics, and water-colorings are also something to check out.

    Yeah, so, this pretty much makes me a subscriber to Aquaman. I'll be adding this shit to my pull list at Midtown as soon as they list it.

    Are we discussing graphic novels in here as well? Cause I really enjoyed Black Hole recently, as well as the Best American Comics 2010 compilation. The first installment of Charles Burns' new series, X'ed Out, was really good too, with some beautiful full-color art.

    Also, I stopped by Borders last night to check out their going-out-of-business sales, and they had a great comics/graphic novels selection. I bought Asterios Polyp, which is supposed to be amazing, the second volume of Sandman (although I still haven't started the first) and the first volume of Preacher. Everything was 50% off! I'm excited to read all three.

    Sweet finds, Andrew. Graphic novels are certainly part of the medium.

    2nd volume of Sandman was A Doll's House. That was when it started to really hit its stride. The 4 one offs that followed that were excellent (Dream Country), leading into my favorite story arc of Season of Mists.

    I used to collect the 'X-titles' comics - X-Men (Blue/Gold), X-Factor, and esp. X-Force (post-New Mutants). I enjoyed the crossovers series as well.

    I also got into Image comics and J. Scott Campell's Gen 13 soon thereafter.

    Haven't collected comics for a while though.

    Just got back from day 1 of WonderCon. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeph Loeb, Bruce Timm, and Berkeley Breathed (which was awesome because Bloom County is my all-time favorite comic strip). I also scored a WonderCon exclusive X-Men variant with them wearing orange and black and posing with the World Series trophy. Ended the night with a screening of Super featuring a Q&A with Rainn Wilson afterwards. 'Twas a good day.

    Nice. I was thinking about popping down there but Geoff Johns already broke bigger / hopeful / expected news about the Aquaman book so I'll probably go along with my regular plans for the weekend. I know one day passes are still available but meh, I'm still moving. Definitely going to register for a 3-day pass next year, though.

    Had an awesome last day of WonderCon today. My buddy and I had a nice chat with Erik Larsen about how he did the cover art for a series of Oakland A's magazines back in 1990. We also talked to Bob Self about publishing and got a sweet sketch from Ragnar.
