“The DVD equivalent of an audiobook”: That’s Film Threat’s assessment of Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic DVD (It’s actually a fairly positive review). “Motion Comic” still sounds strange to me, like someone referring to a movie as a “moving picture.”
Ed Brubaker deftly dodges what would have been a devastating face-kick from Zoe Bell: Or maybe that picture was posed. The LA Times’ Geoff Boucher on comic book writers in Hollywood. The article begins, as all articles having anything at all to do with comic books must for the remainder of the week, with a mention of Watchmen.
Wait, what did the ‘90s X-Men care about underwear?: I’m pretty sure none of ‘em even wore underwear, or we’d see more visible panty lines through their super-tight spandex costumes. Please see Kevin Church for more on the only team-up stranger than Archie/Punisher.
The Alan Moore comic they will never, ever make into a movie: I try not to run press release-type information here…unless it’s awesome. And this sounds pretty awesome. Top Shelf will be re-releasing Moore and Melinda Gebbie’s three-volume epic of erotica Lost Girls in a new $45, all-in-one single hardcover collection (shrinkwrapped, for obvious reasons). That’s good news to anyone interested in reading what is probably the most intelligent work of pornography ever made (certainly in comics form) but couldn’t bring themselves to part with the cost of the original set (I think it was $75, but it’s been a while). It’s currently set to ship in May; more info here.
