This his week Ryan Cody is back with Sly from Rhinestone.
Ryan is still running an unbelievable sale [where you get a free sketch with every purchase. That’s right. Buy Volume 1 of his sketchbook for five bucks and get a free sketch. Same if you buy Volume 2 or the Icarus Convention Issue].
If you want to see more of his art then check out Ryan’s blog and his DA site.
Thanks to Ryan! – Craig
The December 2, 2011 issue of Entertainment Weekly has a cover story called, “Stars’ Worst Movies.” Sly makes the list with “Eye See You” and here’s what they say…
* Sylvester Stallone *
Eye See You (2002)
Costarring: Tom Berenger and Charles Dutton
Tagline: “Survival is a killer.”
Originally titled D-Tox back when it still had hopes of a wide release, this sluggish stockpile of stale serial-killer cliches spent three years in limbo before eking out a blink-and-you’ll-miss it theatrical run. Sly plays an FBI agent haunted by the murder of his girlfriend with a power-drill and is sent to a remote clinic for post-traumatic stress disorder. As a blizzard rolls in, one patient starts offing his fellow inmates, and it’s up to you-know-who to save the day. The punny title refers to the killer’s calling card – in one case he writes the letters “ICU”inside his victim’s eyelids.
Most Embarrassing Moment: Never one to let a double entendre go to waste, Stallone impales the killer on a spike while uttering, “I see you. You see… this?”
I’d have thought they would have selected “Stop or My Mom Will Shoot” or “Rhinestone.” I guess those would have been too easy. – Craig
I scanned the photo above from the latest issue of Previews which is a catalog available through comic shops. If you’re interested in one of the action figures, I’d put in an order soon.
One of the questions that I get most often recently is, “When will we see a trailer for ‘Bullet to the Head’? So, I asked my Sly contact and was informed that we should see a trailer in December. More news to follow as it becomes available.
On November 24, 2011, The Huffington Post posted the results of a poll of movie fans to determine the 10 Greatest Sports Films.
Coming in at #10 was Sly in Escape to Victory… and Sly returned in the #1 spot with Rocky [earning 28% of all votes cast].
On November 22, 2011, What Culture posted a piece called, “10 Films I Can Barely Believe Are Real.” Included on the list of less-than-classic movies was “Stop! Or My Mom or Shoot.”
You can read why “Stop!” made the cut as well as see all movies on the list with a simple click.
US superstar Sylvester Stallone has teamed up with heavyweight boxing legends Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko for what is billed as the world’s first musical version of “Rocky”, producers said Monday.

Hey SZoners, I just received the following e-mail from Sly:
The poster that everyone is seeing on line is completely unofficial and bogus. The official poster is far from being completed so unfortunately people like to pull pranks. Please everyone spread the word that the real poster won’t be out for several months.
So there you have it. Someone with some skills decided to have a bit of fun. Thanks to Sly for letting us know. – Craig
SZoner, Gerardo Moreno is back with a piece he calls She Believes in Me.
