Dick Giordano’s Demolition Man #5

Dick Giordano, the comics legend is back! During his fifty plus years in the biz he’s done everything from ink all the greats (including himself) to serve as Editor-in-Chief of DC Comics, to co-founding his own comic company.

Burt Reynolds Says Sly May Be Easy

On December 6, 2009, PBPulse.com posted a short interview with Burt Reynolds and he talks a bit about several of the films he’s worked on.  Here’s what he had to say about “Driven”:

Driven: “There was a wonderful scene with Sly (Stallone), where I was telling him how I’d driven fast my whole career, and now I couldn’t get out of this chair. He was off-camera, and I could see he’d started to tear up. And I thought, ‘Either I’m doing something right, or he’s easy.’”

On December 1, 2009, TMZ broke the news that Sly is suing to get back the famous 1950 Mercury used in the filming of “Cobra”Sly first reported the car as stolen in 1994 and recently came across it in an internet ad offering it for sale.  When the current “owner” refused to return it, Sly went after it through legal means.

According to TMZ, “a suit filed in in L.A. County Superior Court begins with a quote from the movie — “Crime is a disease. Meet the cure.'” You gotta love that.  Sly is suing for an immediate return of the car as well as three million dollars in damages since his name and image were used without the proper permission to promote the auction.
