Brubaker adapting 'Coward' for Slade to direct Hunting Lane Films to produce crime noir with Sierra Affinity repping Int'l By Josh L. Dickey
Ed Brubaker, the comicbook world's most decorated scribe of the past five years, is adapting his graphic novel "Coward" for Jamie Patricof's Hunting Lane Films, which has acquired the rights to the modern crime noir and attached "Twilight: Eclipse" helmer David Slade to direct.
Published by Marvel Comics' Icon imprint, Brubaker and illustrator Sean Phillips' "Criminal" series, of which "Coward" is the first arc, won the Eisner for best new series in 2007. For his work on "Captain America," "Daredevil" and other titles, Brubaker won the top prize of best writer at the Eisner Awards -- the most coveted kudo in comics -- three out of the past five years.
The first in a series of six interconnected stories, "Coward" centers on Leo, a master heist planner who lives in a world of hustlers, crooked cops, pickpockets and lowlifes. A sequel to "Coward" is in the works, and Hunting Lane has first option on the second in the series, Brubaker told Variety.
Including cgi cartoons, anime, stop motion, etc. If it's animated, I wanna know about it.
I just came across this US trailer for Studio Ghibli's 2010 movie. I swear those guys make magic. In your travels, if you're ever find yourself in Tokyo, put aside a couple of hours and go visit the Ghibli Museum.
Besides those, I've been getting into Generator Rex. I caught a few episodes of Adventure Time and it's nice. Regular Show is still awesome fun. They've remade Hunter X Hunter (my wife's favourite manga/anime) so we'll be jumping onto that. I miss Thundercats
That is about the level of exchange that I am good for. I usually end up saying stupid stuff, but the point is to let them know that work is not only good for the fat paycheck and the shiny new G-IV ready to jet them around the world, but that people are digging on it. I figure everyone likes to hear how they are appreciated.
After the initial "Thank you for doing book X, I enjoy it month in and month out", I usually just end up talking to the creator about his trip there, the con itself, and what can they tease me with that's upcoming in their book.
Encouragement keeps the creative juices flowing.
Sounds good. So some generic questions can include:
"How's your con experience so far?" "How do you like (insert name of city)?" "Do you have anything exciting planned while you're here or just the con?"
Maybe a couple of comics related stuff:
"You write/draw a kickass (insert character or team)!" "What's in store for (insert character or team)?" "Are you having a good time (or are you sick of) writing/drawing (insert book name)?" "Any chance of writing/drawing (insert fave character/book)?"
And maybe something more specific to the creator, hopefully something he doesn't get asked a thousand times. Hopefully you'll be able to get an idea if they're feeling chatty or not after a question or two and maybe some of those questions would generate further talk.
How does it work by the way? Do you only get to talk to them if you want something signed? Or if you don't have anything to be signed, do you just line up where everyone else does? I suppose I could get a dollar bill signed or my arm or something.
Geez, I'd love to catch them when they're not working, I don't wanna take up too much of their time if they're busy doing stuff.
Unfortunately, I'd probably just stare from afar like a goon ("omg...it's Greg Rucka! What? Say hi? No...I'll just slink away").
I'll probably do the same, not because I'm scared or intimidated but what do I talk to them about? "Hey Greg, Queen and Country was awesome." And then what? I love comics to shit but I'm far from being articulate about writing/art styles and the craft and all that
The battle is epic it make american events look like tea parties of boringness with wack crumpets.
I agree with you guys but to be honest (and I hope I don't get kicks for this) it left me a little unsatisfied. This is based on the anime though so maybe the manga did it better but...
a) Ace died I got this spoiled for me way before I saw it so the whole time I was just waiting to see if the episode I'm watching is the episode in which he dies.
b) I didn't like how he died. Sort of like the whole calling Marty McFly chicken and he just couldn't walk away.
c) Where was the rest of Luffy's crew? I liked Luffy's new kickass crew for the Battle of Marineford but the arc marks the halfway point to the series and his regular crew was nowhere to be found. It felt weird that this was a very important moment for Luffy and the regular cast members weren't there.
All that aside, the battle was fucking epic. I even enjoyed the
prison breakout arc
that lead up to it. The whole damn series is awesome.
