Everybody's Linking For The Weekend

Hey, do you live in South Carolina? Then head over to the Greenville Comic Con this Saturday... I'll be the guy looking at comic books.

One of my favorite films from my youth (and one time Halloween costume), Darkman, is coming soon from Dynamite.

This joke about Galactus and Hardee's is substantially funnier if you actually live in the South.

Think Martian Manhunter has no villains? PSSHAW! Check out The Prophet!

Redesign Wonder Woman? Sure, why not. Personally, I'm a huge fan of re-designs of Wonder Woman which make her look like a thin, trendy 26 year old who just got off her shift at the record store. (NOTE: I'm lying.)

Rick brings the tunes in the form of Magneto and Titanium Man!

And a sad note, Aquaman co-creator Paul Norris passed away this week. RIP, Paul.

There was a time when "Darkman" was my favorite "comic book" movie. I don't feel the years and especially the sequals have been kind, but I've still got a soft spot for the guy. That cover a while back with Darkman resting on a mound of Ash masks (conveniently obscuring Ash himself) hinted at wonderful possibilities for the character beyond the usual "grim vigilante" route. Someone ought to get Tom Peyer to do that book.

I've been strained this week, so I threw up that years old Prophet bio from the old site with barely any polish. I regret that now. Your spotlighting him just reminds me how slight the entry is. I think I'll do a synopsis for the special soon and sneak some updates into that post retroactively. Got to do new bios for major players like Faceless, Bel Juz, and Professor Arnold Hugo, as well. Um, relatively major to J'Onn J'Onzz, I mean.

I like the concept of Project: Rooftop, but the execution is really lacking (both in quality and quantity.) I'm going to have to thrown in on that Wonder Woman action. Like J'Onn, Diana really needs some quality threads that modernize and improve on a classic look without "Hot Topic" coming into the discussion.
