The Latest ComicMix Radio Hot Links!
Yesterday on ComicMix Radio we talked about the ultra-rare, ultra hot limited edition comic. Here is where you can check out that very rare variant for The Lone Ranger series from Dynamite Entertainment. It is being offered by Comic Collector Live and is limited to just 250 copies.
Artist Colleen Doran comments here about her work being used as props in an upcoming episode of the CBS show Numb3rs . The episode, titled ‘Graphic,” airs November 23, right at the end of sweeps, so slap a sticky note on your TiVo before you forget.
There are still a few days left before Halloween, which should give you plenty of time to dive into the horror-themed interactive series, “How To Survive A Horror Movie: All the Skills to Dodge the Kills”. Based on book of the same title by Seth Grahame-Smith, the two-minute webisodes can still be seen here.
Lewis Trondheim, award-winning cartoonist behind the Dungeon books and other best-selling graphic novels, now has a cartoon blog on NBM Publishing’s website. NBM, which is collecting Trondheim’s blog postings into the upcoming book Little Nothings, delivers one entry per day here. Little Nothings Volume 1: The Curse of the Umbrella is due out in January and features funny snippets from everyday life, with the cartoonist drawing himself as a chicken-headed Everyman.
The Killer, the cult classic from France, brings a professional killer to the U.S. A man of few scruples, nerves of steel and a steady trigger finger. A man whose crimes might be catching up with him. A man on the verge of cracking. In case you missed the first four issues from ASP Comics, you can see the online trailer here (www.aspcomics.com/the_killer_trailer.php) which sets you up for the Killer har5dcover that reprints those comics. Killer #’s 5 and 6 are in most comic stores now.
If you are up for a little challenge, Bid Kahuna is a new interactive site that’s both fun and informational for comic collectors as well as other collectibles niches. In a “Price is Right” style format, you can guess what the closing price will be on select Internet auctions, and get both bragging rights as the Bid Kahuna AND win great prizes (one recent prize pack is valued at $350 and includes rare signed prints, gift certificates to on line comic retailers & more) . There’s NO charge at all to play, and simply by participating in the current Featured Comics Challenge, you’ll be helping out The Hero Initiative, the charity that helps older comic creators in medical or financial need.
Nothing too scary coming up on ComicMix Radio this week – unless the idea of “Girls On Girls” gives you goosebumps (insert your own joke here). You might scream at the big stack of new comics and DVDs heading to the stores in a few days, but we are guessing you will find our talk with one of comics’ most controversial creators to be a real treat.
All this and so much more can be found three times each week on ComicMix Radio, available right here at (where else?) ComicMix. OK, enough with the Halloween cliches. Is it time for Christmas yet?
