Dick Giordano: “Demolition Man” 2

To comic book fans, Dick Giordano is a living legend. 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. Mr. Giordano also has a great sense of humor.

I recently had the good fortune to pick up six model sheet headsketches of Sly that Mr. Giodano did before starting work on DC Comics adaptation of “Demolition Man.” That’s the second posted above.

Stallone Video Games

SZoner, Ian Cranston, [who happens to be Evan Bryce‘s brother] wrote in to say:

I came across an article which might be of interest since it has to do with 90’s Stallone video games.  You can check it out by clicking here.

Also wanted to say thanks for being so supportive of my brother, and it’s kind of funny because I’ve been going to your site for about ten years now.  Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the link Ian, and don’t worry, we’ll continue to support Evan!

Clips from “Nighthawks”, “Die Hard”, “Heat”, and many other movies will appear as filmmakers such as Larry Cohen (“Phonebooth”), Carl Franklin (“Out of Time”), Steven de Sousa (“Die Hard”) and others discuss the popularity and changes the genre has experienced.

SZ Exclusive: Stallone Behind the Scenes Pics

SZoner, “Joe Tanto Hummer” sent in a bunch of pictures that he had taken, over the years, of his visits to Stallone movie premieres, Planet Hollywood openings, and the like. Unfortunately most of the pictures were taken without a flash at night or had glare or something that prevented them from being used. We did want to share these EXCLUSIVE pics from Joe.

This is a cool candid that Tanto picked up of Sly and one of his paintings.

Here’s a shot of Sly and Jen at a 1995 Planet Hollywood opening.

Tanto wanted to be sure that we all got to see this building-sized poster for Tango and Cash!

Thanks to Joe for sharing! – Craig Zablo [September 28, 2002]
