Crepes & Comics!
Best of 2012 display!
Andy sold me THAT issue of The Underwater Welder on Saturday!
I just finished reading Jeff Lemire’s graphic novel The Underwater Welder. It’s like an awesome Twilight Zone episode that was never made. Lemire is easily my favorite comic book writer out there right now. Check it out!
Reading The Walking Dead #100 SPOILERS!!!
Wow…. I just finished the final issue of Sweet Tooth. This has been easily one of my favorite stories. The art is amazing and the story had been heartbreaking at times but ends on a note of hope. I HIGHLY suggest you go out and pick up the first volume. It will grab you right away.
New Line Cinema has finally hired a new director for its long-gestating movie adaptation of Brian K. Vaughn’s fabulous Vertigo comic Y: The Last Man. The bad news? The director has only professionally directed commercials. The good news? This particular commercial director is Dan Trachtenberg, who also made that fabulous Portal fan flick “No Escape.” That’s quite a leap, but still, “No Escape” is well-made enough (and authetic to its source material) that’s I’m more than willing to give Trachtenberg the benefit of the doubt here. Assuming, you know, the movie actually gets made this time.

I LOVE THIS COMIC! I HOPE THEY DO THE MOVIE RIGHT. ALTHOUGH I THINK A MINI-SERIES WOULD TELL THE STORY MUCH MORE EFFECTIVELY THAN A 2 HOUR MOVIE.
