Repo Man

If you don’t think this is one of the greatest movies of our time then I feel bad for you.

Spoiler for the End Credits Scene for Guardians of the Galaxy

twiststreet:

At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, they show a short clip of the last few minutes of your life.  The camera is looking up at the stars (i.e. the “Galaxy”), and then you see a shovel, and then dirt slowly covers the camera as it begins to shake. You hear your own voice yelling “I’m not dead yet.  I’m-not-dead-yet." Also, make sure to watch carefully and in the corner of the screen, you might notice a special surprise cameo from your mother, who is depicted laughing, laughing hysterically, and dancing an alien, herky-jerky dance.   

Your mother is played by Nathan Fillion.  In real life.  For the movie, they got Gabe Kaplan.

Also, totally coincidental, but I like how mine and my girlfriend’s expressions match in these pictures. She’s excited because she has a FunkoPop Hannibal Lecter in her boobs. I was excited for, well, all sorts of reasons.

I also like Zach’s “I’m dead and I hate everything” expression in my photo.

Just a few snaps from this month’s Secrets Society meeting! The Tri-Cities only Vaudeville event!  

The Secrets Society is a new, awesome monthly event in Johnson City put together by some great friends and I’m glad I got to be a part of it.

Last night I went up onstage and drew a guy’s mutant portrait whilst rambling wild nonsense. It was a blast. And check out those awesome gothic lolita outfits Kat and Morgan wore!

Other performances included blacklight body painting, belly dancing, a drag show, an awful comedian (I got more laughs out of the audience than he did), and a dude hammering nails into his face.

Also, the dude with the acoustic guitar introduced himself as Corn Beef Brisket before they started playing and I nearly died laughing at that.

This is something special. If you’re in the Tri-Cities you simply must come to the next show in August!

Seriously, look how gorgeous the art in this thing is! Incredible.

On top of the good times had at the Secrets Society last night, I also got this gorgeous graphic novel which @hunnahh picked up for me at Comic-Con. He’s the best.

What kind of pretentious asshole gets up to draw people in front of an audience? Sheesh.

And focusing on Marvel and DC at the expense of the dozens of other publishers in comics, and then declaring comics a failure at San Diego Comic-Con, is incredibly myopic. It’s a mistake to think that Marvel and DC are all that mattered, that their new events or announcements dictate the future of capital-c Comics. Marvel and DC are comics, just like the other publishers, and they make some great ones when they let the creators do their own thing. But at this point? You can’t treat them like the entirety of the comics industry, or even two companies that can dictate the future of comics. They run the movies, and that’s cool, but running comics? It’s just not true any more. Image in particular outsells Marvel in the book market as far as trade paperbacks go, and that holds true in the comics market lately, too. That’s no coincidence. People enjoy Marvel and DC, but they want more than Marvel and DC.

If the announcements from the Big Two felt lackluster, but the fans still had a great time, how did comics fail? That sounds like a Marvel & DC problem. Vertical debuted Moyoco Anno’s brand new book In Clothes Called Fat at the show, a comic geared toward adult women. They sold out of Fumi Yoshinaga’s What Did You Eat Yesterday?, a romance/cooking comic. At Image, we sold out of Greg Tocchini & Rick Remender’s Low, an aquatic sci-fi tale, and Nick Dragotta & team’s Howtoons, a comic geared toward getting kids interested in the science through practical play. Boom! burned through Lumberjanes, a comic about girls at camp. These aren’t your normal comics, and people were eating them up.

After two bad “Comic-Con was bad for comics!”/”Comic-Con was good for comics!” pieces, io9 lets iamdavidbrothers do his thing, and the result is—surprise surprise—a great piece that’s head and shoulders above the traditional (print) comic coverage on the site*.

-great piece as usual by my brother David. And yeah, Vertical with a Big V killed it at SDCC. People ate up josei comics and gay comics up! They were all over our mecha manga. And as usual cat comics dominated like few pet genres can. We didn’t have a huge booth with huge lines. But we had a steady stream of hungry and knowledgeable readers, including many new ones introduced to us thru social and visual media.

I wanna thank all our readers for their support. And then give a special nod to our publisher friends - Image, Fantagraphics, First Second, Drawn & Quarterly, Top Shelf, Viz, Seven Seas, Funimation, Dark Horse and Oni Press - for their support. They were all winners at SDCC! (via vertical-inc)

Awesome to see Rob on the cover of A! but come on, local news outlets: stop putting “BAM! POW!” in the headline every damn time you write about comics, please?
