Titan announces the return of Hookjaw

26 July 2016 2:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Titan Comics has announced the classic killer Great White Hookjaw is set to return this December with a new miniseries from writer Si Spurrier (Cry Havoc, Weavers, Doctor Who, Numbercruncher) and artist Conor Boyle.

The mini-series is set to be an intense modern iteration of the titular ocean predator, which debuted in legendary British comic (and forerunner to 2000Ad) Action #1. Initially inspired by the success of the film, Jaws, Hookjaw was one of many Action strips so violent it was banned from the shelves upon release!

“I’ve wanted to do a Hookjaw story as long as I’ve been making comics,” states Si Spurrier. “Social, complex, intelligent and exceptionally good at what it does, today’s Hookjaw arrives like a shadow amidst a catalogue of zoologists, soldiers, spies and Somali Pirates. Every person involved thinks they’re the hero of the story. They’re all wrong.”

Mike Gold: Archie Is Too Cool For Words

20 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Lately, my Weird Sounds Inside The Gold Mind kickass rock and blues Internet radio show has spilled over into my ComicMix column. But it’s hard for me to restrain myself, and besides, self-restraint isn’t exactly my long suit.

Since every living person, as well as the estates of many of the dead, makes all kinds of “big” announcements at Sdcc, the smart people (Hi, Martha!) make their big announcements the week before the show. They’ll get better exposure in the online comics news sites, and this year they avoid having to compete for attention with a 70-year old Creamsicle media hog with severe bigotry issues.

So our friends at Archie Comics cleverly chose last week to announce their latest bizarre crossover, Archie Meets The Ramones. This past decade or so, Archie Comics (as opposed to the character, Archie Andrews) have been the most innovative and risk-taking of the Original Comics Publishers. »

‘Star Wars Rebels’: 10 Things To Expect From Season 3, Straight From Star Wars Celebration

16 July 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Saturday afternoon at Star Wars Celebration was rebel territory, thanks to an information-packed panel all about “Star Wars Rebels” Season 3, along with the exclusive premiere of the first two new episodes from the animated series. Co-creator Dave Filoni hit the Celebration stage in London alongside “Rebels” stars Tiya Sircar (who voices Sabine) and Sam Witwer (who voices Darth Maul and the Emperor on the show) to talk about what fans can expect to see from the newest season.

In short, it’s a lot. From the introduction of new characters (and maybe a few not-so-new characters) to some major developments from old favorites, along with the kind of reveal that made a grown man sitting in front of me stand up and cheer “Yesss!!!,” Season 3 does not appear to be holding back (even if Filoni had to, just a little bit).

Ghostbusters movie review: boo yeah!

12 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Kate McKinnon’s gleefully reckless physicist is brainy comic mayhem, unlike any female character we’ve seen before. And there are more reasons to cheer. I’m “biast” (pro): love the 1984 movie

I’m “biast” (con): wary of the need to remake it

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

My reaction to the idea of an all-female Ghostbusters reboot? I am desperate for movies about women doing all sorts of things — including silly stuff like engaging in experimental particle physics, playing around with total protonic reversal, and saving New York City — but I would also like women to get their own stories and the opportunity to create their own iconic characters. I knew that even if this remake turned out to be completely amazing, any success would come with an asterisk. There would always been the “real” Ghostbusters — the original 80s movie, not to be »
