So it seems my life has come full circle, never did I think I'd have been able to work on a comic related to Lost Boys, one of my favorite horror movies, but I have. Hitting stands this month, The Lost Boys: Reign of Frogs #1, the frog brothers finally make it to the comic stands were they belong! This is a solid book, with a good story and good art, let's not forget that i lettered it! Ha, so check out the preview in the title link above and pick it up from your local comic shop.

An excellent movie, easily one of the best this year and for good reason. Javier Bardem plays his character to perfection, I do not doubt for a second that he is anything other than a cold-hearted calculating killer. Tommy Lee Jones looks and plays the part of a run-down old sheriff who knows the deal, and more importantly knows the limits of his own mortality. Josh Brolin also delivers and excellent performance, I wish he had not met his end the way he did, but he did, and I wouldn’t change it if I could, I would however tack on maybe 15 to 20 minutes to the end, perhaps in some sort of epiloque that would bring a bit more closure to the whole movie, I found it a bit too abrupt, but seeing as other things in the film were of the same nature, I shall roll with it. If you don’t over hype this movie before seeing it, I think you will walk away pleased, if you’re expectations are through the roof, relax, read the book and then give it a shot.

For me, this little flick hit all the marks, funny, entertaining, thought provoking and creepy. It also had style and a freshness that most zombie movies just don’t have. I had no expectations going into this movie, I’ve heard good things and bad things and coming away from the movie the only bad thing I can think of is that the movie came to an end. All the actors hit their mark, the humor was humorous, the chick from the matrix was stunning, the cars were cool, the colors intense aaannnnd… I’ve found a new favorite character, Mr. Theopolis, the quirky next door neighbor and his zombie girl friend Tammy. Absolutely brilliant. If you like fun movies check out Fido, if you don’t f@#% yerself!
Ok, Cormac McCarthy is now two for two in my book, or should I say blog, as far as his novels go. As I mentioned in a previous entry I had enjoyed the road and was willing to give Cormac’s writing another shot, and he delivered once again. The writing here is a bit more conventional than the road, which is a good thing, although I tended to have to reread certain parts that I found confusing or overly detailed, I found the characters to be well thought out even if I didn’t agree with how certain ends are met and loose ends are left loose after the story concludes. I especially enjoyed the sheriffs’ narrations. After all is said and done, I recommend this book, if you’re interested in the movie, read the book first, if you’ve seen the movie, this will make the movie even more enjoyable.

A few posts ago, i put up some character designs for a pin-up/illustration I'm doing for a friend of mine, I finished the pencils, although I'm sure there will need to be some minor tweeks. I'm very happy with how it came out, and it was a good experience to sit down and pencil something this tightly, usually i rough up a drawing and then just go in with inks and make a mess, so, without further ado, here it is--
