ComicMix Quick Picks – April 9, 2009
A round-up of items from the last few days…
- Hugh Jackman heartbroken over ‘Wolverine’ leak: Jackman said, "Obviously people are seeing an unfinished film. It’s like a Ferrari without a paint job." Jackman is on a world tour to promote the movie, making his first stop at Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbor, where much of the film was shot. He arrived at the venue by helicopter before swooping to the ground on a zipline.
- Today is the golden anniversary of the Magnificent Mercury Seven.
- Today is also the first day of Passover, so here’s a list of Jewish Superheroes, Villains, and other Comic Book Characters. How they missed Yoda, I’ll never know.
- At last. The State will be coming to DVD July 14th. Get your $240 worth of pudding ready. Buy it and make Mo Willems cry.
- And finally, Dave Arneson, who introduced Gary Gygax to the possibility of roleplaying gaming, succumbed to cancer on April 7th, at the age of 61. Bruce Baugh has an appreciation of his life and times.
Anything else? Consider this an open thread.
