They guys over at ComicBookMovie have some cool stuff, that is why we love them.. Check it out..

According to THR Schenk will come aboard the movie which still has director Jose Padilha attached. The two had been working together on action thriller Tri-Border

MGM have been working on getting a remake (reboot, re-imagining – whatever word they want to use) of Robocop off the ground for years now but we haven’t heard too much about it since Padila was said to have taken the director’s chair. Apparently they hope to shoot the movie in the Summer although no actor has been cast in the lead role yet. Here is what Padilha had to say about the movie previously..

Wars in the future are going to be fought with drones. We won

Local Heroes: About Time review

Posted on 29 March 2011 by TH3 No08

Time travel can be tricky. There are very few people who “kinda” understand it, it’s the type of subject that you either get it or you don’t. After reading Local Heroes: About Time, I’m pretty sure that Keith Quinn has a firm grasp on the subject as his latest book takes a look at the trials and tribulations of sidekick in training “Squire” and his adventures after accidentily time traveling and having to face the consequences of what his actions have unraveled.

Local Heroes is a sold bit of indy comic writing. Like I said before, dealing with time travel can be tricky but Keith Quinn handles it well. Throughout Local Heroes, Quinn adeptly layers story lines, building to a greater conclusion without committing the cardinal sin of not answering the questions raised in previous strips. He also does a great job of creating interesting characters marked in the tradition of classic super heroes yet still allows them to have a fresh new spin. The lead character “Squire” is a refreshing take on the classic boy wonder. He has been raised in the shadows of super heroes, growing up at Heroes Incorporated and training with UNION, but he still struggles to find an identity among the heroes that have surrounded him over the years. It’s not easy growing up and to have that portrayed in a comic character is not something you see every day.

The art is also very good. The cover is color, the interior in black and white but don’t let the b&w scare you away. The characters are well drawn and consistent throughout and the backgrounds are detailed, always giving you a good sense of where the comic is taking place.

The only real complaint I would have have regarding this comic is the amount of dialogue that often takes place. At times it can become quite “talky” leading to frames that are a bit cluttered with all the speech balloons. It’s understandable considering the amount of information that was required to get a handle on what was going on, but condensing a bit of dialogue here and there may go a long way in streamlining the flow of the comic and keeping the interest level up.

Overall a very good comic especially considering it is a collection of weekly strips. It could easily have become disjointed since it is a collection but they all play together nicely and come together to tell an interesting story. It’s certainly worth taking the time to check out and supporting a local artist who is putting out quality work.

Local Heroes: About Time is a collection of

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!
