The X-Files are coming back to Fox later this season, so you can expect posts like this over the next couple of months as we get these little teases, and while this isn’t the first, this is your first substantive look at what’s in store for the new, further adventures of Mulder and Scully. So does that mean you get some insight into the plot here? Of course not, don’t be ridiculous. What it does establish though is that it may have been 12 years since the last time Mulder and Scully peered into the X-Files, but that doesn’t mean they’ve lost the suspicion or paranoia. (more…)
Recently, we had a chance to talk face to face with multi-talented comic book writer and artist Tim Seeley at New York Comic Con about his and Mike Norton‘s rural noir zombie thriller Revival, providing a contrast for The Walking Dead, becoming a highly sought after team with Norton, the status of the rumored Hack/Slash film, his interest in bringing his comics to TV or the big screen, and knowing where Revival will end thanks to Lost.
EDITORS NOTE: In partnership with Youtube personality Kelly Carlton (aka F’N Pryde), we give you another weekly installment of badass, foul mouthed comic book reviews. So without further ado here’s F’N Pryde with her weekly comic book rundown. It’s “Pryde’s Picks!”
Rage fills my soul with this week’s books, I wanted to bitch slap Brian Michael Bendis when his “un-guessable ending” turns out to be as predictable as a My Little Pony adventure and IDW decides that a cult classic like The X-Files deserves it’s art work outsourced by some high school students.
If you’re a comic book fan or new to the medium, my irreverent and lighthearted reviews are bound to offend and delight… consider yourself warned!
This week features Superior Spider-Man #12, Age of Ultron #10, Avengers Prelude to Infinity #14, Green Lantern: New Guardians #21, Revival #11, The X-Files #1, Wild Blue Yonder #1
EDITORS NOTE: Attention readers of Nerd Bastards. We our proud to present our newest comic book column. Forgetting our past meager attempts at blogging the latest happenings in the comic-verse, we are now offering examinations via Youtube personality Kelly Carlton (aka F’N Pryde). ‘Ole Pryde here is a busty, foul mouthed comic connoisseur. She’s here to give you the run down of this week latest grabs in a segment called “Pryde’s Picks”.
Hi guys, Pryde here. I’m poppin’ my Nerd Bastards cherry with my very first entry. (Squee!) I’ve been doing “Pryde’s Picks” on my YoutTube page for a while now, but sharing myself on this platform, with this audience, is the coolest. So, yeah, I have boobs and read comics. Aren’t I the darnedest? From here on out, I’ll be your guide on the most topical offerings this side of the Marvel and DC universes and everything in between. I’ll tell you what’s hot and what’s not, and be cursing like a sailor throughout. Enjoy.
We are gonna start with one book from DC (Batman Detective Comics #2) 1, do a butt load of Marvels (Age of Ultron #9, Thanos Rising #3, All New X-Men #12, Superior Spider-Man #11), and round it out with a few books from Vertigo Comics (Astro City #1, The Wake #1).
And… here… we… go…
WARNING: My reviews are spoiler heavy, so don’t feel butt hurt if I ruin something for you.
In 2012, All-Star Marvel and DC artist Mike Norton further moved toward creator owned projects, continuining his Eisner Award winning Battlepug saga online (and in collected editions through Dark Horse) while also co-creating Image Comics’ rural noir zombie book Revival and Dark Horse Comics’ brand new costumed hero book, The Answer, which debuts today.
Here, Norton tells us about how he picks his projects, why he doesn’t hide from superhero tropes, how Revival isn’t your typical zombie book, battling zombie fatigue, and if he’d like to see Battlepug live on as a cartoon series.
Along the way, we also discuss the challenges of telling a slow burn story, the appeal of The Answer‘s female lead, and how a costumed hero fits in at Dark Horse.
All that and more with Mike Norton after the jump. (more…)
