Desperado - Talented Folks & Exciting Projects
Saturday, February 19, 2005 5:21 PM

Some folks have been saying that the comic industry
is dying for longer than many of you have been around. I
first heard this in the mid-70's. I heard it again in the early
80's
and again in the mid-90's.

Joe Pruett's heard these grumblings too. Funny thing,
though. Last year Joe went out and rounded up some
of the best writers and artists and brought them
together to create comics for his Deperado Publishing company.

You say you haven't heard of Deperado Publishing? You will.

Just look at some of the people Joe's already signed up: Brian Bolland,
P. Craig Russell
, Tony Harris, Cully Hamner, Bernie Wrightson, Andrew
Robinson
, Amanda Conner, Phil Hester...

And look at some of the projects that are in the wings:

So the next time someone says comics are dying, send 'em over to
Desperado's site. They'll see that comics are still kickin'.

Every Time I Talk to Liston
Saturday, February 19, 2005 9:47 AM

Amos “Scrap Iron” Fletcher is a fighter on the decline. Most of his earnings come from work as a sparring partner. So when he loses the biggest fight of his career [in Vegas!], and his boxing license is suspended because of lies, Scrap Iron is left with a choice... walk away in disgrace or figure out a plan to gain back his reputation and career.

Every Time I Talk to Liston, Brian DeVido's first novel is a winner. DeVideo, a former Golden Gloves heavyweight champion, knows the boxing world. More importantly, he's an excellent writer. I hated to see Every Time I Talk to Liston end.

If "Scrap Iron" and crew come back for a rematch, I'll be ringside!

Sin City Website Goes Live
Wednesday, February 16, 2005 6:16 PM

The Sin City website went live today. It's got a lot of cool areas with more to come.

I'd tell you more, but why not just go have a look around?

You never know who you might bump into in Sin City. If you see a guy in a StalloneZone shirt, odds are, it's me.

Is This the Next Pulp Fiction?
Saturday, February 12, 2005 12:21 PM

"Sin City". "Is this the next Pulp Fiction?"

That's the question asked by Entertainment Weekly in their Spring Movie Preview [on stands this week]. I, of course, hope that the answer is a resounding "YES!"

Everything is pointing to a potential break-out and even blockbuster hit for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. Every step from Rodriguez's idea to "translate not adapt" Sin City has seemed the exact right move. With potentially the most exciting ensemble cast in any movie this year, and with Rodriguez and [Sin City creator] Frank Miller as co-directors, how can it miss? The trailers and photos released so far say that it won't.

But, and this is a B I G but, will the general movie-going audience get it?

Some, maybe even many, would argue that they won't. Still, "Pulp Fiction" was different and people ate it up. It was just hip enough and the buzz was strong enough that a lot of people were willing to give it a chance.

So, yeah, I'm hoping that "Sin City" is the next "Pulp Fiction."

New "War of the Worlds" Teaser Kicks Butt
Monday, February 7, 2005 8:14 PM

Did you happen to catch the "War of the Worlds" teaser that premiered during the Superbowl last night?

If you missed it , then waste no time and click HERE.

Ok, now that everybody's seen it, what do you think?

I thought it was awesome. Cruise teaming with Spielberg for "War of the Worlds"... you just know it's going to be huge. And Dakota Fanning is one impressive little actress.

Anyone doubt where they'll be on June 29th?
