Upcoming Movies

I'm a movie geek and I do like my comic books. This year has got two comic book movies coming out that I'll be first in line for. The first is The Watchmen, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons ultimate graphic novel. When the individual issues were being released I was buying two copies, one to read, one to store away. I also bought the Watchmen watch, the softcover graphic novel, the special HC graphic novel and I even have a couple of the French graphic novels. Wolverine was always one of my favorite X-Men going back to my first new X-Men issue 111 by Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin. This issue blew me away and I stuck with the X-Men for a long time throughout different creative teams.
Enjoy this image I cobbled together from the Watchmen one=sheets and also this new image of Wolverine and his gang; Deadpool, Gambit, Sabretooth and Silver Fox.


Cheers

I thought I'd sworn off superhero movies...but THE WATCHMEN has me hooked. I'll be there opening week.

Many years ago I had the opportunity to buy a copy of the original Watchmen shooting script which was supposed to be directed by Terry Gilliam. I read it and thought that it wasn't a good adaptation but Terry Gilliam is one of my favorite directors. I'm really looking forward to Zack Snyder's interpretation. Do yourself a favor and watch his Dawn of the Dead. Keep up the great blog. I'm really enjoying it.
