Godzilla: Awakening cover header

Hey geeks, FamousMonster here! I recently had the opportunity to speak with Max Borenstein, screenwriter of Gareth Edwards‘ upcoming Godzilla film, as well as a graphic novel tie-in, Godzilla: Awakening.

Borenstein wrote, edited, directed, and starred in the 2003 film Swordswallowers and Thin Men while a senior at Yale University. The film starred Peter Cellini, Zoe Kazan, Fran Kranz, and Graham Norris and won Best Feature and Best Screenplay at the New York Independent Film Festival.

What Is Life Worth?, Borenstein’s 2008 screenplay based on Kenneth Feinberg’s memoir, was honored with inclusion on The Black List, an annual list compiled by Hollywood executives of their favorite unproduced screenplays. His 2009 script Jimi, commissioned by Legendary Pictures and based on the life of guitarist Jimi Hendrix, was also included on The Black List.

Borenstein’s script for Legendary Pictures’ Seventh Son, inspired by Joseph Delaney’s young adult dark fantasy novel, The Spook’s Apprentice, is scheduled to be released on February 6, 2015. Godzilla, which comes to theaters on May 16, 2014, will be his first major motion picture screenplay to hit the screen.

Avengers World teams up writer Nick Spencer (Secret Avengers, Superior Foes of Spider-Man) with co-writer Jonathan Hickman (Avengers, Infinity) and artist Stefano Caselli (Avengers) and focuses on “the new heroes recently added to the team’s roster.”

Idolized #1Idolized #1
Written by David Schwartz
Pencils by Micah Gunnell
Colors by David Curiel
Letters by Josh Reed
Editor Vincent Hernandez
Cover by Arthur Adams, Michael Schwartz and Joe Benitez
Aspen Comics
Release Date: August 8, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

I’ll be the first to admit, I didn’t think that Aspen Comics would stick around long after the unfortunate passing of founder Michael Turner. But, they’ve done a good job keeping the fire burning and I was actually surprised at how much I liked Idolized #1!!!

Writer David Schwartz does a FANTASTIC job writing this comic! I’m guessing that he watches a lot of reality TV, because to me, the dialogue, premise, and execution of the issue was almost perfect. And he knows how to combine it perfectly with the superhero genre. From start to finish this is a great comic. It’s a perfect blend of reality and super heroics and a really fun read. It’s got a great shock ending, that I honestly didn’t see coming. There’s an origin that takes up about a quarter of the book, and that’s a little standard, but it read well and was entertaining. This book was a VERY pleasant surprise.

Colors by Jeromy Cox, Dave Stewart, and John Raunch
Letters by Robbie Robbins, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Stan Sakai
Rocketeer Created by Dave Stevens
Design by Chris Mowry
Covers by Darwyn Cooke and Dave Stevens
IDW Publishing
Release Date: March 21, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

There’s days when I love comics and then there’s days when I LOVE comics. Reading Rocketeer Adventures 2 #1 made me glad that out of all the hobbies or passions in the world, that mine is comic books. From start to finish, this book is one of the highest quality works I’ve read in a long time.

There’s three stories in this issue: Marc Guggenheim, Peter David, and Stan Sakai all tell wonderfully charming stories of the late Dave Steven‘s Rocketeer. While all three are good, Stan Sakai’s is my favorite. There’s a great innocence to it and a fantastic ending that will leave you smiling. Speaking of smiling, Peter David’s story will have you grinning from ear to ear. It’s an all out parody of our hero and very entertaining from start to finish. Marc Guggenheim’s story is the first of the issue and I think it’s meant to be the “heavy” of the issue. While I liked it, I really felt that I was being covertly preached to.
