ICv2 News - Wizard Adds Fourth Cover to #150
THIS IS SO EXCITING I COULD JUST DIE.
Funny story: There were nooo good comics at the store yesterday, so I bought Wizard #149! That's the punchline.
Actually, the Plastic Man series by Kyle Baker is really good. One good comic was there.
Alternative Comics in 2005
From Jeff Mason:
"Some time in 2005 I'll be releasing one of the most expensive comics I've ever published!!!
Just wait until you see the section of translucent pages!! As the translucent pages are turned, images become superimposed over one another so that the ideas are related to each other in sequence.
More details over the course of 2004!!!"
I'm already sold on this.
Your latest Hollywood gossip
By now most of you suckers have fallen for that whole joke about the Halle Berry Catwoman movie, so I thought I should just clear a few things up. One, the movie is not in production, and will never be. The pictures
you've seen are actually Photoshop manipulations by desperate comic book fans who like to create 'real life' versions of their favorite comic characters. The Halle Berry pictures are actually a female version of everyone's favorite British Vampire, Baron Blood
. Do you see the resemblance?
"John, no one wants to see Baron Blood as a woman! What are you a pervert?"
I can understand your confusion, but I assure you that many people do. A quick trip to Wizard Magazine's site
reveals that many comic fans wish their favorite comic characters were nude women with costumes painted on in a computer program. Here's one of the Punisher
, one of Cyclops
and my favorite of them all, the Vision
Now hopefully we can put all this silliness to rest.
