The Darkness and Will Ferrell
No matter what your holiday is, these next couple of weeks will be as fast paced as a Jack Kirby plotline. Here is a couple of quick hits for those “goof off" minutes I know you will grab:
• Landlord star Will Ferrell will be criss-crossing college campuses next February to promote FunnyOrDie.com and Semi Pro, his latest feature from New Line Cinema. The site will also release a new video starring Ferrell and his co-star Andrew Daly each week leading up to the film’s premiere on Leap Year Day, Feb. 29th. The "Will Ferrell’s Funny or Die Comedy Tour" pairs Will with three of the site’s regular stand up comedians, Zach Galifianakis, Demetri Martin, and Nick Swardson.

• Dale Keown returns to the Darkness, with The Darkness #3 in February. He will pencil a special flashback sequence in that issue scheduled for release in February 2008. Meanwhile, The Darkness #3 will feature two covers by Keown and Stjepan Sejic (First Born, Witchblade) and can be previewed here (www.topcow.com/darkness).
• Marvel’s Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born Premiere Hardcover is Amazon.com’s #1 Editor’s pick of 2007, but even better, you can catch the first part online for free. Marvel has announced that the first chapter of Dark Tower is now available online, for free viewing here as part of Marvel’s Digital Comics Unlimited.
Before you know it, ComicMix Radio will be here to lay out the newest list of comics and DVDs for the week – then just after that we hit you with all you need to know about Moonstone, one of comics’ most consistent indy publishers then, we warm up with the Suicide Girls!
See you tomorrow!
