The Green Hornet: Aftermath

Posted on 14 April 2011 by TH3 No08

The Green Hornet: Aftermath

Sponsored by: www.comicbreak.com

Written By: Jai Nitz

Art By:Nigel Raynor

Rocketing out of the events of the monster hit movie, follow the continuing adventures of Green Hornet and Kato as a power struggle for control over drug trafficking in Los Angeles turns violent. Green Hornet and Kato are just starting out, but they’ve attracted attention from the cops, the drug pushers, and even Homeland Security! Britt and Kato keep their alter egos hidden, but a new set of masked men on the scene complicates matters.

I’m not a huge fan of movie/comic crossovers. I prefer them to stay within their own that’s why I didn’t think much of The Green Hornet: Aftermath when I picked it up. It looked like a piece of promotional material for the movie that came out a few months back and I don’t need to be sold on a movie that I was never really interested in seeing in the first place but I read it anyway and suprise of all suprises, it’s actually not a bad comic.

The book picks up where the movie left off, which is a bit of a mystery to me since i didn’t see the movie but that didn’t really hurt too much. It starts with the typical scenario of Kato doing all the heavy lifting and The Green Hornet showing up at the last moment to take all the credit only this time the credit is being given to someone else by a pair on nosy Home Land Security officers. They think TGH is one of Reid’s reporters, Cullen Hurtt and this doesn’t sit well with either of the guys. Kato and TGH want a bit of the credit they feel they should be getting but don’t want to out themselves to accept it.

I like the book, the character chemistry is interesting, the art is classic comic inspired and the cover is dynamic, straight off a movie poster. If you enjoyed The Green Hornet than this is certainly worth picking up and if you haven’t seen the movie but would like an introduction to the character this is definitely a good point to jump on and check it out.

It’s Monday morning and that means it’s time to find out who the big winner was at the weekend box office.

Thursday Artist Of The Day: Monica Gallagher

Posted on 17 March 2011 by TH3 No08

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to take a look at some of the talented comic writers and artists we spent time with at Staple-Austin over the past weekend. We had a great time meeting and interviewing these guys and girls and want to give you a chance to check out some of their work.

Monica Gallagher is a talented comic writer and artist that just happens to be a super nice lady. She also makes awesome horror heroine portraits. You can check out her work and find more info about her at www.eatyourlipstick.com.
See her super long bio from her website below the interview we did with her at Staple…

Monica Gallagher is a graphic designer during the daylight hours and a comicker at night. While an animation major in college, Monica first tiptoed onto the comics scene with her webcomic Gods & Undergrads, following the awkward adventures of a girl transitioning into college life while simultaneously discovering her connection to Greek gods. Once her eyes had been opened to the online comics scene, Monica couldn’t help herself and continued to produce more work.

A short stint in amateur modeling led Monica to create both an autobiographical story dealing with her struggles with self-esteem (titled Boobage) and a fictional series dealing with a professional model who works part-time as an assassin (titled Lipstick & Malice). In 2010, she chronicled her experiences modeling in her autobio When I Was A Mall Model. Luckily, Monica emerged from modeling with both her boobs and her criminal record intact. She then discovered something else to become obsessed with and inspired by — Roller Derby. Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five is the result of her inspiration — a weekly webcomic that combines the superhero side of being a rollergirl with the Clark Kent side of working a day job. Monica just completed her first season as a member of the Junkyard Dolls, one of the four teams of lovely ladies of the Charm City Roller Girls. Sadly, she’s currently on a break from derby at the moment due to time constraints, but you better believe she’s still out there skating!

Recently, Monica contributed to Oni Press’s Roller Derby Anthology JAM! Tales from the World of Roller Derby which was released on June 23, 2010. She is currently working on illustrating a full-length graphic novel for Oni.

Monica continues to create short stories, contribute to anthologies, and tackle illustration work from her home in Baltimore, where she lives with her boyfriend and their dueling cats. Check out her blog for the latest dirt – you never know where she’ll pop up next!

A more in depth trailer for Super 8 is here!!

Posted on 11 March 2011 by TH3 No08

I’ve been super excited to see this film since the early teaser from last fall. Abrams has really captured the 80′s Spielberg vibe here. I think a lot of it may have to do with the music and the whimsical bit of childhood nostalgia that seems to run throughout the trailer. Either way I can’t wait to see this when it hits June 10, 2011. This summers starting to look like its gonna be a big one after last years disappointments…

Set in 1979 Ohio, a group of six young children use a Super 8 camera to make their own zombie movie. One night while filming near a remote stretch of railroad tracks, the children witness a truck collide with an oncoming train leading to a catastrophic derailment. Amidst the fire and destruction, something inhuman emerges.

Rango serves early notice to all Best Animated Oscar contenders…

Posted on 04 March 2011 by TH3 No08

I was raised on the Hollywood western. While my friends were off playing Star Wars and Indiana Jones I was playing Rio Bravo and The Rifleman. My hero was always the man in the white hat that never failed to save the day and always got the girl. I also loved classic comedy westerns such as The Shakiest Gun in the West, The Apple Dumpling Gang, and The Great Race. Their comedic twist on the movies I had grown to love so much as a child kept me smiling on the worst of days. Perhaps that

Drive Angry 3D Superbowl Spot

Posted on 05 February 2011 by TH3 No08

Here’s another badass trailer for Drive Angry. This one will be featured during the Superbowl so check it out so when you see it on Sunday you can say you saw it here first…

Synopsis

“Drive Angry” stars Nicolas Cage as Milton, a hardened felon who has broken out for one last chance at redemption. Hell bent on stopping a vicious cult of fanatics who murdered his daughter, he has three days to stop them before they sacrifice his infant granddaughter beneath a full moon. Milton must use his anger to go beyond all human limits in order to save his last connection with humanity.

He’s joined by Piper, a young sexy-smart waitress who liberates her ex-boyfriend’s cherry red muscle car in order to help Milton. Now, the two of them are hot on the trail of the charismatic Jonah King and his murderous followers. King will throw every one of them faithful under the wheels of Milton’s turbo-charged Black ’71 Challenger, to fulfill his destiny and unleash hell on earth.

But the bloodthirsty cult is the least of Milton’s problems. The police are after him, too. And worse. An enigmatic killer known only as “The Accountant.” The Accountant knows what Milton is trying to and simply doesn’t care. With wicked cunning and hypnotic savagery, the Accountant will relentlessly pursue Milton at high speed across the forgotten back roads of the American south.

Fueled by high octane and pure rage, Milton and Piper must battle the onslaught of King’s disciples, avenge his murdered daughter, and save his granddaughter before his last chance at redemption is revoked.

R.I.P. The White Stripes

Posted on 02 February 2011 by TH3 No08

So apparently the White Stripes have decided to call it quits. They left this note on their website…

The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011,
their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live.

The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any
health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health.

It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve What is beautiful and special about
the band and have it stay that way.

Meg and Jack want to thank every one of their fans and admirers for the incredible
support they have given throughout the 13 plus years of the White Stripes
