Tony Millionaire is one of my favorite cartoonists working today. He’s been doing this Maakies strip for quite some time now ,I saw this one for sale on the internet. He has a website selling original artwork for about $350 apiece, not a bad price at all. My plan is to buy one a year with my income tax returns.
Tony Millionaire also has a comic book series out from Dark horse called sock monkey and don,t forget billy hazelnuts. A couple months ago I won a Sock monkey lunch box and some Sock Monkey stationary from a dark horse online contest so I just want to say thanks and go buy those too, and check out the MaaKies hardcover collections by Fantagraphics. Buy all things Tony Millionaire and read MAAKIES every week.
Meet the Golden Age Superheroes like The Black Terror and The Green Lama in Dynamite comics Project Superpowers by Alex Ross and Jim Krueger. These comics give new Life to these long forgotten about Public Domain Characters. The first thing you will notice is the stunning covers by Alex Ross of Kingdom Come fame. His love of characters like the original Dare Devil and Hydro man is on display as he pays homage to comics glorious past. Issue #0 is the comics deal of the year. You can buy 2 copies at a dollar apiece and they fit together to form a larger picture of all the main characters. There are also variant covers out there by Michael Turner worth chasing. Jim Krueger’s storytelling left me a little confused in issue #0 but I got the basic background of the main character the Fighting Yank, but I don’t quite understand the whole mess with the two ghosts that keep haunting him. I liked the brief appearances of the other characters in the book and it ended on a good note leading up to and setting tone for number one.
Issue number one features more great art work by Ross. The issue I picked up featured The Black Terror and the Green Lama in Full on fighting mode. Once again there are negative variant ,and Michael Turner variant covers for you to chase on Ebay. This issue introduces us to two new characters The Green Lama and the Black Terror. The Green Lama is best known as the worlds first Buddhist superhero and the Black Terror is an angry butt kicking ghost man with a skull and crossbones logo similar to the punisher. Honestly I can’t wait for the rest of this series and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new series to pick up. You Might also want out check out the Twelve by Marvel comics or Alan Moore’s masterpiece Watchmen, soon to be a major motion picture directed by Zack Snyder.

The first Images of The Gi Joe
movie are starting to surface, check out the new pics of snake eyes being released by Universal studios. First off I’m really excited about this movie. Hell I’m almost excited as I was when I heard about Transformers. This scares me because It’s being handled by those incompetent bastard lame asses that made the Transformers movie. I’m still recovering over the long deep dark depression that one caused. For christ sakes what the hell kinda craptastic suckfest was that? I still have high hopes for the G.I. Joe movie just because I think the pictures of snakeyes look so cool. They seem to be sticking more to the traditional character design. I hope they do the same with other iconic G.I. joe characters such as cobra commander and Destro. I can’t wait to see what storm shadow will look like. I like some of the improvements costume designers have made in hollywood lately, they seem to look more realistic and fantastic at once. Snake Eyes will be played by Ray Park, the guy that played Darth Maul in Star Wars. I personally couldn’t think of anyone more qualified to play a ninja than a Jedi (or whatever Darth Maul is..sith?). The RED FOX REPORT !
