SDCC 2017 iZombie Robert Knepper

Warning! Do not proceed of you are not all caught up with iZombie!

Last season of iZombie ended on a crazy note. Ravi (Rahul Kohli) created one dose of a zombie vaccine, and he asked his best friend Liv (Rose McIver) to do the honors of scratching him. Zombies are out of the closet, after Chase reluctantly goes through with “Plan B,” infecting half of Seattle with a vaccine that was really the virus.

Warning – SPOILERS for Preacher Season 1 Episode 2 “See…

Two weeks ago, Preacher debuted on AMC and introduced the TV audience to Jesse Custer, a Texas Preacher who is trying to carve out of new life and leave a violent one buried in the past. This proves hard for Jesse (Dominic Cooper), as he and mysterious new friend; a vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) beat up an entire bar full of hooligans, including abusive father Donnie (Derek Wilson), who ends up with a graphically broken arm. While Jesse’s past, particularly his ex-girlfriend and partner Tulip (Ruth Negga), are trying to bring him back to the dark side, a strange otherworldly force has inhabited him. This same force has been turning men of god (and Satan) inside out and outside in, all over the world, and seemingly has a home now in Jesse Custer. This force is so powerful, that when Jesse told an annoying congregant to “open his heart” to his mother, the man flew to Florida and ripped his heart out of his chest in the old folks home! Right on cue, two strange men stalking the mysterious force show up in Annville likely to cause trouble.

Spoilers below.

Full disclosure warning…

I know nothing of the Preacher comics, story arcs, or characters. Thanks to some helpful direction from friends on Facebook, to origin story videos on YouTube, I now have a loose idea of what to expect. Preacher is a series from DC’s/Vertigo comics, written and created by Garth Ennis back in the mid 90s. There were several attempts made to get the comic put to film as early as 1998 with Kevin Smith attached as a producer. After almost 15 years bouncing around studios, then off to HBO, the series was finally greenlit by AMC thanks to the efforts of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who also co-wrote and directed the pilot. If you’re looking for a detailed analysis of all the similarities and differences between the comic and the series, I can’t help you. But I will say when it comes to other comic book interpretations, some of my favorite MCU films were based on comic characters I knew little to nothing about, such as Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy. Uncle Ben told Peter Parker, “with great power comes great responsibility.” I’m telling you, “with no comic knowledge comes no irrational disappointment.” So onward we go…

The GoD List

Each and every week, I, “Giant Robot!” Henchman 21 and “Space Robot!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 1, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

I thought I was going to have an easy list to write this week, but as I started seeing what was coming out, I had to keep adding things and adding things and adding things. It turned a shorter list into a longer list, but that just means you, the fine reader, have plenty to look forward to when you go to the store today. I hope you’re ready for some new series, some reprints, and plenty more on a jam-packed The GoD List!

Celebrate National Alfred Hitchcock Day Today!

Alfred Hitchcock

Today is National Hitchcock Day, a day of celebrating and remembering the Master of Suspense, the man who was as much a colorful enigmatic character as the scores of films he directed, many of which stand as cinema’s all-time best, the one and only Alfred Hitchcock.

Hitchcock helmed films such as Psycho, The Birds, Vertigo, Rear Window, North By Northwest, Frenzy, Rope, and a multitude of others (15 of which are now collected on the Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection Blu-ray box set), creating a resume that not only stands the test of time, but remains a highly influential body of work, cinematic primers, and visual textbooks that scores of filmmakers in Hitchcock’s wake have studied, dissected, analyzed, and revered, using many of his techniques in their own productions. Hitchcock had a huge imagination and it showed in so many of his productions, be it his casting, framing, staging, the way his movies were shot, edited, and scored; imitations in the sincerest form of flattery and the in-sincerest form of thievery, the film landscape that Hitchcock planted by way of his expert movie landscaping remains terrain much treaded on by so many luminaries and rookies and all in between, who work not only in Hollywood, but film companies around the world.
