Maybe HollywoodContinue reading “Artists create amazing posters for sequels we wish would happen”

MITNG speaks with Lightning Dog creator Nathan Smith

I had the pleasure of meeting Nathan Smith at this years Phoenix Comic Con. Seated humbly at his booth, he had that look. You know the one that reads “give my comic book a shot”?

These vintage music billboards from the Sunset Strip will blow you away

I wasn’t alive when L.A. was this cool, but I wish I was. It’s hard to believe, when looking at these awesome music advertisements, that L.A. or even America, was this cool at one time. But then again, there were probably some folks who ran some underground music zines at the time, that were sayingContinue reading “These vintage music billboards from the Sunset Strip will blow you away”

How The World Was: A California Childhood is another triumph for Emmanuel Guibert

  This is how one should be remembered! A company should be created that pairs great artist and writers with people who wish to have their lives turned into graphic novels.

Battling Boy is an awesome coming of age story told on an epic landscape

Gods, they’re always trying to teach us something. “Us” being humans, but what do they try to teach each other and how the heck do we find out what’s being said ?

Max Brooks graphic novel The Harlem Hellfighters would’ve made a better unillustrated book

I’m not ashamed to admit that a lot of my history lessons, of late, have been through graphic novels. I find that lately a lot of authors are using this medium in order to tell the world their stories and although most are a blend of fact and fiction, there’s no denying some of theContinue reading “Max Brooks graphic novel The Harlem Hellfighters would’ve made a better unillustrated book”

New AKIRA fan made teaser trailer shows amazing potential

It goes without saying that with a little ingenuity, passion and respect, anyone with the know how and patience could create a better Akira film than most Hollywood directors could ever imagine.

Derek Kirk Kim’s TUNE BOOK 2 : Still Life is hilarious claustrophobia

Derek Kirk Kim seems to have come into his own on this second installment of his TUNE series. Although, more first person, the lead character Andy Go’s, inner monologues and conversations with Dash (the zoo recruiter turned art aficionado) is well worth the read. Maybe it’s because I am morbid or maybe it’s because IContinue reading “Derek Kirk Kim’s TUNE BOOK 2 : Still Life is hilarious claustrophobia”
