So, ComicMix readers, as per my previous column, Awesome Con DC happened April 20 and 21…and, I say this unironically, it was awesome. I had a blast. I spent time with good friends; I met new friends; I walked the con floor and met comics legends (great chat, Larry Hama!) and witty and charming award-winning artists (hello, Ben Templesmith!); and was delighted with the strong turnout of talented local comics folks. I went to a couple of panels (amazing, for me, since I usually plan to go to tons and then don’t go to…any); and wore my Girl Jayne Firefly costume. And yes, naturally, I bought some stuff (surprise!). I also pretended to be Nick Galifianakis for awhile (don’t tell!) and did three fantaaaastic interviews: with Nick, and with the amazingly talented Phil Lamarr and Billy West. (More convention pictures here, and oh by the way, next year »

Some people can never escape their signature roles -- just ask "Hook" star Dante Basco.Though he's done voice work for "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and starred on the Disney show "American Dragon: Jake Long," Dante is best known for playing Rufio, the mohawked leader of The Lost Boys in the 1991 flick.In a new video for Funny or Die, Dante plays himself auditioning for "A Streetcar Named Desire" ... but it doesn't exactly go according to script. Last time we checked, Stanley never called Stella a "fart factory."Check out the video above -- plus see what the rest of the cast of "Hook" looks like today in the gallery: Read more »

With Stoker out this Friday (check out our review here), it wont be long until we’re awaiting the English language debut of another Korean master, Bong Joon Ho. His film, Snowpiercer seems to be the bigest and most ambitious, but also the most secretive. Information has been sparse, and has generally raised more questions than it has answered. Now we have a still of Tilda Swinton’s character looking like a cross-between Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender and Hugh Jackman in the futuristic scenes of The Fountain.
Snowpiercer sees humanity confined to a train that never stops as it plows through a new ice-age. Only problem is, the train is split according to class and the lower classes are getting a bit annoyed at the way they are treated. Based on a French graphic novel by Benjamin Legrand and Jacques Lob, this is bound to be one of »

A new image from Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer has been released. The film takes place on a train that never stops as it makes its way through a futuristic world that is in the midst of an ice age. The train is divided into classes, and the lower class is ready to revolt. The new image features Tilda Swinton looking like Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender, but Swinton has made a habit of looking strange in both movies and her red-carpet appearances, so this isn't too much of a shock. My larger question is if this kind of style is representative of the larger film. We don't know any details about her character, but for someone who is in the midst of an ice age, she seems fairly comfortable in short sleeves, and is in no way surrounded by snow and ice. Hit the jump to check out the image. »

Glad to see me? I guess we're in the next life! Back from a fun week off with the family, that included a trip to Disney World, the conclusion of an "Avatar: The Last Airbender" marathon(*) with my daughter, airport hijinks, etc. I clocked back in last night to watch and write about Seth MacFarlane and the Oscar-cast. (*) Down the road, I might have more to say on the subject of "Avatar," which I found really tremendous — and which, like the best family entertainment, was just as enthralling for my 9-year-old daughter as it was for 39-year-old me — but right now I'm looking for recommendations on what »

Clancy Brown, the quintessential voice of Lex Luthor, will walk the red carpet and take part in the post-screening panel discussion when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and The Paley Center for Media present the World Premiere of Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite in New York on February 11, 2013.
Brown set the benchmark for all Lex Luthor voices with his iteration of the role for Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League/Justice League Unlimited, and he has reprised the voice in several TV series episodes as well as the DC Universe Animated Original Movie, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, and now for Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite.

When it was announced that the Xbox 360 would implement an achievement system, many gamers groaned at the idea. Sure, it might add more replayability to a game, but if the achievements don’t mean anything, what is the point of going after them in the first place? Achievements may have seemed silly at first, but now they’ve taken on a life of their own. Several websites exist just for the purpose of helping gamers learn how to unlock achievements easier. There are also several message boards where players can get together and grind out several of the harder, online achievements. A similar community exists for PlayStation Trophies. However, are all of these trophies and achievements actually hurting the games we play? Are we, as gamers, missing out on the actual game we are playing based on the amount of time put towards gaining achievements?
I have to admit, I »
