Image Comics: So Much Damage | SYFY Documentary

Aside from not getting a lot of new information (for those of us who’ve been around since then), the one bad thing about these kinds of documentaries is how they tend to get the chronology all wonky. You don’t cover the start of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead (October 2003) and say THEN Powers (April 2000) came out and Brian Michael Bendis was fired by Todd … Continue reading Image Comics: So Much Damage | SYFY Documentary

Meanwhile, As We Wait for Southern Bastards . . .

Well today is kinda cool. pic.twitter.com/GnNk4d64UG — Jason Aaron (@jasonaaron) April 17, 2017 Well, those of us (and we are legion) waiting around (im)patiently for more Southern Bastards can thank the upcoming SCALPED TV show and the developing SOUTHERN BASTARDS TV show as well as both Jasons, Aaron & Latour’s, contractual commitments at Marvel for the wait and irregularity of our favorite Dixie-fried crime comic series. Great things … Continue reading Meanwhile, As We Wait for Southern Bastards . . .

The River’s Edge | Riverdale Pilot Commentary

Obviously the inspiration for this adaptation, particularly in tone, is more owed to the recently rebooted Archie comics than the old school originals that began in the golden age of comics during the 1940s. So going in with that and the fact that it’s a modern day teen show on the CW with a mysterious teen murder as a backdrop, you know it’s going to … Continue reading The River’s Edge | Riverdale Pilot Commentary

Commentary | AMC’S Preacher: Season 1

After the excellent and humorous 6th episode “Sundowner” from a couple of weeks back, PREACHER and I have finally reached an accord with each other, I suppose. I’m starting to judge it less in comparison to its comic book/graphic novel source material, finally. Last week’s episode, “He Gone” was fairly good. Still, I have issues with Cassidy and Tulip hooking up so early in the … Continue reading Commentary | AMC’S Preacher: Season 1

Comic Book Fetish Casts Southern Bastards TV Show

By Brandon L. Rucker So recently it was announced that Jason Aaron & Jason Latour’s hit Image Comic series SOUTHERN BASTARDS has been optioned for television development via the FX network. This is good news. My immediate thought is that with its strong high school — and by extension college — football connection, not to mention the racially tense location in the South, this series … Continue reading Comic Book Fetish Casts Southern Bastards TV Show

Buzz: Flash Ep. 116 & Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Ep. 214

Just to get the BUZZ section of the site going, I’m posting last week’s Facebook conversation in regards to Flash and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Brandon Rucker I just finished watching a great episode of Agents if SHIELD and a rather good episode of Flash and come here and no one’s talking about either? For shame. March 25 at 9:08pm John Razumich Flash felt like a little bit … Continue reading Buzz: Flash Ep. 116 & Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Ep. 214
