God Is Disappointed in You

Thursday, 7/9/15, 11:00a.m. – 12:00p.m., Room: 28De

Hey, nothing personal — that’s what the book says! Writer Mark Russell (Prez) and Eisner Award winning artist Shannon Wheeler (The New Yorker, Too Much Coffee Man) bring to life their hilariously irreverent retelling of the Bible, God Is Disappointed in You (published by Top Shelf). They’ll perform their infamous “Bible in Ten Minutes” slide show and play a selection from the God Is Disappointed in You audiobook, as read by James Urbaniak (The Venture Brothers), recently nominated for an Audie Award for Best Comedy Audiobook. They will also give a sneak preview of the hotly anticipated sequel, Apocrypha Now.

"Arrow" Actor Is "Turtles" 'Casey Jones'

2 April 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new designs of "Arrow" actor Stephen Amell as 'Arnold "Casey" Jones', the hockey masked vigilante in the prepping live-action "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" sequel:

"...'Casey' was born and raised in New York City in a neighborhood overwhelmed with criminals and thugs. He bought several books on martial arts combat, and began intense physical training to combat the threat.

"I had this idea; it was kind of a parody of all these vigilante characters that were in comics," said "Turtles" co-creator Kevin Eastman.

"You have the classics like 'Batman' and 'Daredevil' and all these characters where something tragic happened in their past that helped them choose the path to go out and fight crime on their own, and I thought it was really funny if we had a character who was inspired to do the same, but just from watching too much bad TV, like 'Tj Hooker' and 'A-Team' and all that stuff. »

Spoilers: Which Of The Four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Has Been Killed Off?

19 March 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Donatello is dead! He was taken out in brutal fashion in the pages of today's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #44, and fan-favourite villains Bebop and Rocksteady were the ones responsible for the beloved character's murder as you can see below. The series is written by Tom Waltz and Tmnt co-creator Kevin Eastman, and IGN has more details on the moments leading up to this if you're curious to learn more. Apparently, "Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo were trying to stop Krang from terraforming the planet using the alien "Technodrome," leaving Donatello running command from their home base. Shredder had ordered Bebop and Rocksteady to kill Donatello if anything went wrong, and sure enough, something did. Donatello tried to fight them off, even getting some help from Metalhead (being controlled by scientist Harold Lillia), but the duo was too much. The killing blow came when Rocksteady smashed his shell with a sledgehammer." Though »

Kirk Cameron And Cameron Diaz “Win” Big At 2015 Razzie Awards

22 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about any of that “Oscars” silliness, or Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties. No, I’m talking about the 2015 Razzie Awards, in which all the crap of the crop from this past year in cinema at last gets its well-deserved comeuppance.

This year’s “winners” are a particularly disreputable bunch, with Kirk Cameron leading the pack for his atrocious Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and Michael Bay reliably racking up more Golden Raspberry Awards for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. It was a strangely good night for Ben Affleck, who took home the “Redeemer” Award for turning his career around from Gigli to Gone Girl, and a bad one for Cameron Diaz, who lost out in Worst Supporting Actress for Annie (which still, deservedly, won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel) but received »

Razzie Awards 2015 'Winners': The Full List

21 February 2015 4:05 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The 2015 Razzies "winners" have been announced, leaving the "losers" to breathe a collective sigh of relief -- because, well, who the hell wants to win a Razzie?

You see, for the past 35 years, on the eve of the Oscars, the Golden Raspberry Awards has honored the very best of the very worst movies released the previous year -- and this year's competition was nothing short of spectacular...ly tragic. Everyone -- from Razzie favorites Nicolas Cage and Michael Bay to newcomers Nicola Peltz and Gaia Weiss -- was in the crosshairs, but only 10 took home Razzies.

Here then, ladies and gentlemen, is the full list of winners from the 2015 Razzie Awards.

Worst Picture

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" - Winner

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

"Transformers 4: Age of Extinction"

Worst Director

Michael Bay, "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction" - Winner

Darren Doane, "Kirk Cameron »

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #42

21 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #42…

“Part 2 of “Attack on Technodrome!” An unusual alliance makes its first moves as Fugitoid, Baxter, and Krang aim to outwit each other. The twists and turns are just beginning as the Technodrome is mere moments away from activation!”

Take #41 and add more. Sums it up nicely I think.

The ‘Attack on Technodrome’ arc is beginning to heat up, leaving us in no doubt that the next couple of issues are going to be right up there with the most important in the Idw run.

But that’s in the future. For now we have some awesome stuff to take in. First we have a very nice selection of covers to choose from. I generally much prefer one of the several we’re presented with each month but here I even like the Kevin Eastman version! A solid start indeed.

Last month I banged »

Razzie Nominations: ‘Transformers 4′ Leads Pack; Redeemer Award Added

14 January 2015 6:38 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards, which satirize “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014,” are out. Transformers: Age Of Extinction leads the field with seven; while Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend Of Hercules are tied at six nods each.

As usual, the Razzie races were unveiled one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its picks for the best achievements of the year in film. But are the Razzies softening at 35? A new category has been added this year for the Razzie Redeemer Award, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.

Elsewhere, along with Saving Christmas and billion-dollar box office hit Transformers 4, there are multiple mentions for A Million Ways To Die In The West, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles »
