The Weekend Recap - 05/31/2011

Alright, time for a quick recap of what I've done this weekend.

So what's up?

First, my brother had four free tickets to the screening of Pirates of the Caribbean 4 so we, together with my other siblings went ahead to the cinemas to watch it this past Saturday. Here's a mini-review of the film:

Its never the same without Keira Knightly.

Isaiah "Old Spice" Mustafa Takes On Luke Cage

Remember this commercial?

Yeah. That same guy who used to do monologues with that stick-on is now expressing his inner geek by making his best Luke Cage impersonation via this pretty-good looking short film that definitely has some nice badassery on it:




Though his video is good (that slow motion scene with him punching the wall is pretty sick), I was actually thinking of Michael Jai White playing Marvel's  Hero for Hire and current New Avenger whose main powers include superhuman strength and an impenetrable skin just like Superman.

"Hello, ladies."

What do you think?

'Wonder Woman' Pilot Screencaps And Review [Link]

Reminded me of Ozymandias in "Watchmen"
I'm guessing you already know that the "Wonder Woman" TV series is completely thrown out of the window after failing to impress network executives. But hey, that didn't stop iFanboy's Conor Kilpatrick go CIA-style and impressively grab a copy of the pilot episode featuring our favorite Amazon princess - and even reviews it for cripes sakes, stating that: "the streamlining of the script worked in the pilot's favor". 

I gotta tell you guys, that news made me really mad somehow, because WE ARE NOT GOING TO SEE THE A SINGLE WONDER WOMAN ACTION SCENE ON OUR TELEVISION SETS. Really sad.

Anyway, the least we can do right now is can bask in some Adrianne Palicki badassery rocking the costume (less the tight pants) with these photos below, coutesy of iFanboy:

Graphic Novel Review: Paying For It (May 2011)


 Paying For It 
(A Comic-Strip Memoir About Being a John)
Written and Illustrated by Chester Brown
 Published by Drawn and Quarterly

Few autobiographical novels have made an impact on me mainly because of their boring stories full of self-justification. But Chester Brown's autobiographical novel "Paying For It" is one of those many exceptions.

His intelligent, excuse-free, brutally honest, and thought-provoking defense on the subject of "prostitution" as a viable replacement for romantic love - which he describes as "possessive monogamy" - is certainly going to raise some eyebrows, but at the same time, will make others do a double-take on the very subject of "paid sex" and the people who engage in such arrangements, and maybe, even persuade them to agree with his writing genius.

Review: Captain America "Man Out Of Time"

Captain America : Man Out of Time
Written by Mark Waid
Art by Jorge Molina
144 pages
Published by Marvel Comics 

With Captain America: The First Avenger hitting the big screens this July, its just normal for Marvel to capitalize on their blockbuster film and gain some good comic book sales by releasing a plethora of stand-alone Cap stories, but only one stands out as probably one of the best superhero novels of 2011.

That my friends is Captain America: Man Out of Time written by Mark Waid with art done by Jorge Molina.

I know what you might be thinking: "Another origin story". And I can't blame you, because a lot of out-of-continuity stories are usually re-telling a particular superhero tale that we already heard a million times before.

But this one is different. Different in a very good way.

X-Facts: 8 Interesting "X-Men (First Class)" Bits


Since their debut in September 1961, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's "The X-Men" has become one of the most beloved comic book teams in history. With its premise of "mutants using their powers for the benefit of humanity" later mixed with engaging storylines that tackled issues of racism and prejudice among others, X-Men skyrocketed from the pages of a comic book towards worldwide popularity spawning toy lines, animated tv shows, video games, and a million-dollar movie franchise which included an X-Men film trilogy and a Wolverine Origins spin-off.

Now with the X-Men: First Class film just around the corner, here are some interesting facts about our all time-favorite mutant team that some of you may - or may not - know.

Comic Book Babes Go "Ame-Comi" With Santi Casas' Touch


We usually don't see our favorite comic book heroines go "anime/manga" style  nowadays but that doesn't mean that talented artists can't imagine and create their own versions of these ladies.

Take Spanish digital artist Santi Casas who has made several amazing"ame-comi"  renditions of classic DC babes showing their nice curves and super-powered baddasserry in his deviantArt page, in the tradition of DC Direct's Ame-Comi Heroine action figure series.

He's got a clear knack for transforming any character into something ready for a Japanese-animated TV show or film, and hopefully he continues doing these ame-comi illustrations featuring other superheroines. Make sure you bookmark his gallery because I'm sure that this guy will surprise us with more gorgeous work!

Samples of his Power Girl, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Supergirl and Batgirl goodies after the cut.

Christopher Reeve Immortalized In Hot Toys' Latest "Superman" Action Figure

This could be the most awesome Superman action figure set that I have seen. 

And Hot Toys is bringing us a definite classic back to life in their upcoming release of the said product featuring The Man of Steel himself, molded from the likeness of the quintessential caped wonder of the iconic 1978 film Superman: The Movie: Christopher Reeve.

What an awesome set this is, because not only they made this toy so bad-ass that it looks so eerily real, but the set will also include a pair of three interchangeable hands so Supes can do his camera poses, a special limited edition Kryptonite-necklace that you can hang over the guys' neck just like in the movies, and probably the most impressive of all - an actual Fortress of Solitude stand, diorama-style. 

That's not all. According to the Hong Kong based toy company, a portion of the generated sales from this will be donated to the "Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation" , an institution dedicated to finding innovative ways to cure spinal cord injuries and paralysis, founded by Mr. Reeve himself.

Now THAT is something worth buying for a worthwhile cause and what a way to celebrate the life of the "ultimate" Superman actor.
More shots of the incredible action figure after the cut.

Four Mutants Showcase Their Powers In New "X-Men: First Class" Videos

X-Men: First Class has received a lot of good reviews lately, so it just makes sense for Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox to put their hype/promotional machine to an even higher gear by releasing four never-before-seen clips from the movie featuring Emma Frost (January Jones), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence),  Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) and other mutants showcasing the badasserry of their mutant abilities.

My favorite clip would be the one below that shows a sexy Mystique getting physical with Magneto... well, sort of.





Damn, I can't wait to watch this movie and see Jennifer Lawrence's uber-hotness.

I would have loved to put all four videos here, but due to some kind of embedding problem, you have to go over directly to this link: http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/167385-four-new-clips-from-x-men-first-class

X-Men: First Class, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers  for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.

X-Men: First Class hits the screens on June 3.

Why Superman Is The Greatest Comic Book Character

He's the man that started it all. The archetype for the modern superhero. The brainchild of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, who for more than 70 years is still ripping that shirt off, taking over the skies and saving the world... Superman. 

There are superheroes that are way cooler than him - like Batman for example. Billionaire playboy, has nifty gadgets, and basically is better than the Clark Kent who works as a newspaper journalist, walks to his office and gets yelled by his boss every day, right?

But still, i like Superman. Hell, i LOVE Superman. I've got him all over the place, be it action figures, mugs, dvds, and even in my blog! There I said it. Does that make me a gay now? LOL. 

Back to the question. Why him? Is it because of the superpowers?

Comic Book Review: Wanted (2004)

Wanted
Written by Mark Millar
Art by JG Jones
Published by Top Cow
Number of Issues: 6

Imagine yourself in a world where you can do almost anything, do every vile thing that you ever wanted to do in your life and get away with it. 

Sounds fun right?

That’s what this comic book series is all about.  Forget the Angelina Jolie-flick that you watched a couple of years ago: that doesn’t match with the original that inspired that entire film. Not even close.


Fan-Made "Fables" Movie Posters by Digitalrich



Fables is one of the hottest and most beloved comic books in recent memory due to its fun and twisted premise of putting our favorite fable characters  - such as Snow White, The Big Bad Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack among others - literally, to life and make them live amongst human beings. It has garnered multiple critical acclaims and Eisner-awards to cemented itself as one of the best titles in the Vertigo line and comic books in general.

I have stopped reading Fables after issue #84, but I might be getting back on it after seeing these cool fan-made movie posters that were digitally manipulated to put artists such as Ryan Gosling, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and the lovely Zooey Deschanel into each popular Fables' shoes. I personally like the idea of Gosling as the janitor-turned-powerful Prince Flycatcher, and Dean Morgan as Bigby Wolf. Deschanel being Snow White doesn't work with me though. 

Anyway, thanks to ComicsAlliance and Gamma Squad for featuring these, and especially to Digitalrich himself, who took the time to fulfill every fans dream of having a Fables-inspired film adaptation though his work.

Check to see more of these awesome photos after the cut. 

Adrianne Palicki Wearing The Classic 'Wonder Woman' Shorts

And it looks.... nicer? compared to the pantsy costume she had before. Yeah, I got to admit, showing more skin is better than wearing the tight pants. Gorgeous, Adrianne.



Too bad, the show was already axed and no other network wants to take a shot at it so this is all we're gonna get folks. At least we saw her nice legs. That's never too bad.

Babe Of The Day: Kat Dennings


Since I dreamed about Kat Dennings last night (for some reason I don't know), I have decided to post some of her gorgeous pictures from various websites because I just can't get enough of this talented and incredibly funny actress with that sexy full bodied figure, luscious full red lips, and amazing racks that Katy Perry wished she had. 

Born Katherine Litwack on June 13, 1986, this 25 year old actress has appeared on films such as The 40 Year Old Virgin, Daydream Nation, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist , (alongside Michael Cera) The House Bunny, Charlie Bartlett  and most recently, in Marvel's summer blockbuster Thor alongside Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth. She is also an avid blogger (click here for her official site) and video-blogger as well, showing her funny and honest side while wearing big shirts and pajamas and looking like she just got up from bed.

Latest Comic Book Reviews (05.21.2011) - Power Girl #24 and Alpha Flight (v4) 0.1



Got a chance to read two superhero comic books today featuring one of my second favorite Kryptonian (next to Superman) and the return of Marvel Comics' premiere Canadian superteam. Both books we're really good so I decided to write a review for them. 

You know the drill:  titles are rated by the number of stars I give them, with 5 stars being the highest. That means if a title gets a rare 5 stars, then that should be really m'effin good! 

Now that we got that out of the way, go and read all my reviews after the cut.

Tom Hardy will be playing this intelligent, "steroid" (because I don't know what kind of chemical he's taking) packed supervillain who is most known to comic book fanatics as the one who broke Batman's back in DC's  1993 comic book story arc - Knightfall.

The 'Green Lantern' Film That Never Made It... Starring Jack Black. WTF!?


We all know that Ryan Reynolds is starring in the upcoming GL movie, but I can't help but react to the fact that comedian Jack Black - yeah, effin' Jack Black - was considered for the role of the intergalactic space cop a couple of years ago. 


I know this is late news (you don't have to tell me) and I apologize because I just happen to read about it a couple of minutes ago. With that said, I've got two words to spit out:

H**y s**t. 

Don't get me wrong, I like Black and some of  his movies like 'School of Rock' and 'Gulliver's Travels' to name a few, but come on...a GL film with him on the lead role? You gotta' be kidding me.


Mystique and Beast Get It On In Exclusive 50 Second 'X-Men: First Class' Clip

They get it on... well.. sort of.



I'm starting to like Jennifer Lawrence* a lot everyday and I'm sure I'm going to love her more after I watch the movie. She looks gorgeous (and damn hot at that).

Oh, and after seeing all the trailers and numerous tv spots -I think this whole film is going to look great.

Deadpool Soundbytes From Marvel vs Capcom 3

How many times have we seen Deadpool run his mouth and break the fourth wall in comic books? Right, countless times. And that's what makes The Merc With A Mouth one of the greatest comic book heroes of all time. His talkative nature and unstable mental behavior coupled with bad-ass gun-toting and sword-slashing manners actually tops Spider-Man's one-liners (at least for me) sometimes.

Now Deadpool fans would have more time appreciating him in the newest hit game Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds , where the loud mercenary-turned hero brings his witty-humor and fourth-wall breaking habits to the max: like talking smack to his opponents, belittling them after giving them an unforgettable ass-kicking of a lifetime, or even getting a real good camera close up just to trash-talk Capcom. 

Thanks to youtuber ReNiCGaming for this nice compilation of Deadpool soundbytes. Check it out below. 



Can't wait for the Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool film.

Comic Book Review: X-23 - Innocence Lost

Story by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost
Art by Billy Tan
X-23 created by Craig Kyle
Published by Marvel Comics (2006)
144 pages

X-23. The Wolverine-type mutant girl we see now in some of the X-Men books. I hardly knew this character before and I felt like Wikipedia wasn't enough. So I got this book which narrates the the complete origin story of X-23. Of how she came to be, and what she really is.

The story background focuses on the aim of a top secret organization: replicating the Weapon X gene that created former escapee and now X-Man, "Wolverine" in order to form the "perfect assassin". One of the country's best geneticists - Dr. Sarah Kinney - is recruited with the hopes of creating an male embryo that would carry on the gene.

The task proved to be difficult and almost impossible, as every attempt of creating a male embryo failed. That's when Sarah Kinney stepped up and suggested creating a female "Wolverine" duplicate... with herself as the surrogate mom (after being forced by the program directors herself to volunteer).  Eventually, she finally gives birth to X-23 and that's when the story of this poor character begins.

My Kryptonian Name..

is Err Zor.


I don't know what the hell that means, so I decided to do some research to find out the etymology of my kryptonian name. 


Let's take each one and dissect them, starting with the meaning of "Err":


Thinkexist says:

  1. To miss intellectual truth; to fall into error; to mistake in judgment or opinion; to be mistaken.




Ok, that's doesn't sound good.

How about "Zor"?

OnlineSlangDictionary says


Often used with an expression to enhance it. Frequently used in collaberation with (and originated from) "leet speak" (1337). also -zorness -zors.



Example: Wowzors! (a form of a joyous expression) 





WTF? I didn't know Kryptonians knew "leet speak." Anyway, based on the above information, "Err Zor" literally means: "BIG TIME [insert derogatory/totally insulting word(s) here]". *

Wanna know the "kryptonese" version of your name? Click here.

*and to think that I really spent time writing this shit.

Marvel Launches 'Ultimate Comics' With Kaare Andrews On The Covers

I'm a big fan of Marvel's Ultimate Imprint line because of its very new reader friendly approach to storytelling that doesn't really care about the main Marvel Universe that contains 40+ years of storyline and character continuity. It started in 2000 with the Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate X-Men titles that eventually spawned numerous award-winning titles like The Ultimates (a reimagining of the original Avengers) that was received well by old and new readers alike. But just like any other comic book line that has been going on for more than 5 years, the Ultimate Imprint has showed signs of decline amongst its readers through the years. 

So on its 10th year, Marvel has decided to re-brand its Ultimate line and rename it as 'Ultimate Comics' that would mean a complete overhaul of the imprint and its publications. The main target is to get back old fans that got tired of the old Ultimate stories, and attract new fans who are just starting to get their groove with Marvel. 

New storylines, reinvented character histories (possibly new powers that we had never seen before) and new villains will be showcased in the Ultimate Comics line, and it will kick-start in August with Ultimate Comics Ultimates # 1 and Ultimate Comics Hawkeye #1; to be followed by Ultimate Comics X-Men #1 and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 in September. 

Below are the 4 covers for the mentioned titles by artist Kaare Andrews:






[images courtesy of Marvel via ComicBookResources]

All covers are looking good, except for Andrew's take on Wolverine. He looks like a retard on that long-sleeved suit. We need to see some animalistic hairs.

And oh, we got the "movie Iron Man" version right there!

Check out more news about the Ultimate Comics line at their official site


'Superman Beyond' Coming In August!

Nice idea by DC here following the tradition (and success) of Batman Beyond. Its been long overdue, but the 'Superman Beyond' one-shot will finally hit the stands in August. According to The Source, the story involves  an aging Kal-El/Superman in a futuristic world where he is forced to don the cape once more to fight a powerful nemesis - the most powerful he has ever faced - while his own powers are starting to leave him. 

Quite interesting, I should say. Its been a long time since I read a whole new and "fresh" Supes story. The last one being J Michael Straczynki's 'Superman: Earth One'. 


Tom Defalco will write the story and the interior art department is assigned to Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema. Cover by Dustin Nguyen.

NBC's New Fairy Tale-Horror-Drama Series 'The Grimm' A 'Fables' Rip-Off!?? WTF?



Fuck, I've seen (and read) this somewhere before. Zenescope's Grimm Fairy Tales? Fables? Damn.

Here's the official series description according to NBC:

Grimm is a new drama series inspired by the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales. Remember the fairy tales your parents used to tell you before bedtime? Those weren't stories -- they were warnings.

Nick Burkhardt (David Guintoli Turn The Beat Around) thought he prepared himself for the realities of working as a homicide detective until he started seeing things he couldn't quite explain. When his ailing Aunt Marie (guest star Kate Burton, Grey's Anatomy) arrives, Nick's life turns upside down when she reveals they are descendants of an elite group of hunters, also known as "Grimms," who fight to keep the balance of humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world. 

What is this? Fables with some added supernatural 'Twilight' crap? Fuck this. I'm disgusted by how they to rip one of the most beloved comic book series of this era and then make a lame TV series out of it. The trailer above sucks and I'm pretty sure that the whole series will blow. 

How can they make something like this and then not make an authentic, high-quality Fables series that we can all enjoy? Fuck damn.

'Power Girl' #27 Cover - August Solicit

POWER GIRL #27 
Written by Matthew Sturges • Art by HENDRY PRASETYA
Cover by WARREN LOUW
Power Girl has 20 seconds to save the day – three times over! But who set up this dangerous game? Can Power Girl find a way to overcome not one but three disasters and track down the statistically-minded villain behind it all?
On sale AUGUST 17 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T 



[From ComicBookResources]


Here's the cover for that issue:
Cover by Warren Louw

Cover by Sami Basri

Comparing it with these two sample covers from Amanda Conner and Sami Basri who have both done a great job on their own runs with PeeGee. Conner's PG was a little bit cartoony but complete showed the feistyness and often times, cockiness of the heroine; while Basri's art was more anime/manga influenced, showing a more determined and "realistic" version of Power Girl. Both versions are still sexy, but they put more emphasis to the character and her unique traits, rather than depicting her as a mere sex symbol with the curvylicious body and big breasts. 




Cover by Amanda Conner

So based on that, I have to agree with dcwomenkickingass' statement that the cover by Louw is gotta be the "porniest" PG rendition ever. I'm a big fan of porn, and I kind of like the #27 cover to be honest. I'm a guy so its kind of automatic (I know a lot of women will hate me on this).

Yeah its all cheesecake art, with the tits and the private part almost showing with that thin covering, punctuated by the black maskara over the eyes that completes the begging "fuckface"/"sexface" tone all over PeeGee. It actually qualifies for Penthouse Comix.. I like it. Its not that bad to have a little bit of the erotic in mainstream comics, you know.

Finally... 'Smallville' is over.


And it was awesome. To me, no matter what the critics say, the last minutes of the series was emotional (yes, only the last minutes because the first 45+ was nothing but nonsense crap) and was a nice fit. Though, Clark doesn't get a full shot with the suit, unless its with some bad CGI effects. 

But despite the long wait and watching all the crap take place before the best moments kicked in, time turned back for and I was a kid again, getting all giddy and excited waiting for Clark Kent (Tom Welling) to become the greatest hero God's green earth will ever know: the one every hero aspires to be - Superman. I can't explain with words how much the final minutes of 'Smallville' was like, but I could definitely say that it was an EPIC and even better in a some ways than the final scenes of Brian Singer's Superman Returns (again except for the bad special effects and corny cliches). 

There's Jonathan Kent giving Clark his suit, Clark flying in the air for the first time and becoming Supes, and finally the iconic shirt rip that I've been wanting so see. Plus the greatest Lex Luthor of all time,  Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) was back for this finale. 

To top it all off,  the ending send chills down my spine that I have never felt since Richard Donner's first Superman film starring the late Christopher Reeve - thanks to that familiar 'Superman theme' as all these moments unveiled before my eyes. That tune never fails to capture the very essence of the whole franchise and the character itself.  It was magical. 

Thank you for the wonderful 10 years 'Smallville'. To all its creators, producers, directors, and cast... thank you for giving us a great show and and ending -  that despite all the bad moments, the nonsense and the ridiculous Supes CGI that ranks as one of the worst in TV history - couldn't have been any better for me. Thank you.
