-The NY Comicon is next weekend, and preparations are continuing. I will have an unlettered preview of Vengeance of the Vapor #1 for all to see on the Markosia table along with those rocking Vapor postcards for all to take home and frame! Plus, at Kensuke Okabayashi's table we will be previewing Tiki Road and giving away a few postcards for that book as well. I will be there Friday and Saturday this year so come find me and say hello, and I'll preview more projects for ya!
-I'm really looking forward to the movie 300 and this review really got me going today. It sounds like it's exactly what I want to see! Be prepared to laugh hard! http://www.aintitcool.com/node/31520
-I watched The Marine the other day, and even though it's bad, I really dug it. It feels like a tribute to 80's action movies with John Cena subbing for Arnold. WWE Films' next movie is called The Condemned with Stone Cold Steve Austin and it's about death row inmates forced to kill each other on an island for a TV show. Sounds like No Escape meets Battle Royale. Trailer's up at WWE.com.
-NY Yankees spring training is underway and I am a happy man! (oh yeah, die hard fan here) Pitchers and catchers have reported in and rest of them should be in by tomorrow. Things to look out for is how Carl Pavano and Kei Igawa shake out in the rotation, if Bernie comes back and gets a spot, and how the first base situation turns out.
-Mary Poppins on Broadway was fantastic. Nuff Said!
-Tonight I'm off to see The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly as part of the Morricone festival! This is one of my all time favorite movies and it's exciting to be able to see it on the big screen. I got a ticket for one more movie and that's Duck, You Sucker! on Wednesday. This is the last of Leone Spaghetti's I have to see, although it's technically part of the Zapata Westerns genre.
That's the news and I am outta here!
