Friday Updates

Yesterday Italy, today Serbia: Egon reports that GRRR!, the International Comics Festival starts tomorrow in Pancevo, Serbia.

As far as superhero movies go, a really twisted, scary sure-to-succeed if not f'ed by executives would be Dr. Strange. Wes Craven or Sam Raimi would be all over that. (Raimi especially would be an interesting choice as I'd bet he could land a Spiderman-size budget for what would likely be a very Evil Dead-like movie). I'm just agreeing (mostly) here with Neilalien and 2 Guys Buying Comics.

A new issue of the renamed CG Newsletter (previously Keenspace Newsletter) is out. There's an interview and review dedicated to Legostar Galactica.

Last, my brother who works in the Gulf of Mexico, has updated his website (which has a blog plus a webcomic called Sea Snafu): Ubigod's World. When and if folks can get back to work on cleaning up the aftermath of Katrina he's going to be really busy.

UPDATE: The new ComicGenesis main page design contains pogs (i.e., circular banners). In the CG forums there is a call for artists to submit pogs for their webcomics so that they can be displayed on the main page. Similarly, CG is asking for images of GenChan, ComicGenesis’ mascot to be rotated on the main page.

I'm just of the opinion that Wes Craven should stop making movies.

Raimi could do a Strange movie well. He's got the freaky monster cred, along with the flat-out amazing director cred. Although I could also see David Cronenberg tackle it, if we wanted a Dr. Strange that was guaranteed to be strange.
