The Trees Are Coming!

February 26, 2014 § 1 Comment

Through his newsletter, Warren Ellis has confirmed that he and Scatterlands collaborator Jason Howard are working on an Image title called Trees.

According to Ellis’ newsletter:

I’m finishing issue 4 today — Jason’s doing layouts on the first half while I fix a sticking point in the last half, and that’ll go out tonight or tomorrow. By the time May rolls around, we should have six complete lettered coloured issues in the can. We’ve been working on it since the early autumn of 2013, after all.

Plot-wise, it sounds like a bunch of trees have invaded Earth. Kind of like Triffids.  But more subtle.  And not real.

There’s more on the Ellis/Howard project at CBR.

Trancendence v. Howard Nimh

So, when you watch that Johnny Depp movie about the first person to download his mind into a computer, just remember that I made mine first.

Okay, I know there’s no way that this Johnny Depp movie copied my movie, but I’m claiming the similarities as evidence of the Transmorphic Field (a kind of “telepathic-type” field that everyone’s a part of.  Watch Torchwood).

Why do actors always buff-up for roles now?  Remember when they used to get fat for roles?

I Have to See Vampire Academy

February 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

I can’t help it.  I thought I was all vampired-out with the  Twilight and the Underworld and the Dario Argento’s Dracula in 3D, but apparently, I’m not.  It doesn’t hurt that Vampire Academy is directed by Mark Waters of House of Yes and Mean Girls; but Zoey Deutch, the human bodyguard, is the daughter of Howard Deutch, director of teen classics Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful, and Lea Thompson, from Red Dawn and Back to the Future trilogy; and that just makes me nostalgic for a time when movies like this one were made for me.

Chess Boxing Catches On In India

December 4, 2013 § Leave a comment

from the Nikipol Trilogy

According to a BBC report posted yesterday, chess boxing, invented by comic book creator Enki Bilal, is catching on in India, with teams competing on a national level.

In less than two years of its launch, 10 state-level associations organising championships have come up, while seven more states have shown interest in the sport.

While bigger states like Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh have formed state-level teams, smaller north-eastern states like Tripura and Manipur are also represented.

Of about 300 registered chess boxers in India, 195 and 245 players participated in the two national-level tournaments held in 2013.

What?  The Nikopol Trilogy is one of my favorite comic books ever, and I still resent the U.S. Postal Service for losing my copy of it when I moved from San Francisco back to New York.  The idea of the sport is silly, but awesome – which is exactly why I need to start training.

Something to mix in with all those photos of babies that your friends post.

Let’s hope Darth Vader doesn’t add any selfies that show off any circuits.

Sci-(Non)Fi: Forget Skynet – Here’s Amazon.com!

December 2, 2013 § 1 Comment

We humans are experts at welcoming the robot apocalypse with open arms.  So many of us are used to operating on mindless autopilot we don’t really care who’s in charge as long as we can get the beloved consumer goods we shop for.

So give a big hug to Amazon.com and its impending delivery drones!  Not only are we buying our products written by a computer, on a computer, over a website that gives us suggestions for what we ought to buy, but soon we won’t even have to worry about interacting with those pesky humans who delivery those smiling, brown boxes to our doorstep.  All Amazon needs to do is get rid of those weak homo sapiens working in its warehouses, and the world’s largest online retailer will be completely inhuman!

The next step: robot consumers, so humans will be completely removed from the equation.  Now, that’s utopia.

Where Am I?
