Lost In Space: Countdown To Danger

Are you ready for some more Lost In Space!? The smash hit, emmy nominated Lost In Space crash landed on our TV screens recently!! Now, because of Legendary Comics, it will expand into the comic book world! Do you have a favorite “Lost” character? Well now you’ll get to delve a little bit deeper into their back stories, and take Jupiter 2 where it’s never been before!! Penned by writer Richard Dinnick (Doctor Who; Thunderbirds) and Brian Buccellato (Detective Comics; The Flash) with stunning artwork by Zid (Skull Island: Birth of Kong; Trick ‘r Treat: Days of the Dead), LOST IN SPACE: COUNTDOWN TO DANGER will feature all-new, untold adventures of the full crew of the hit Netflix Original show—including the Robinsons, Robot, Doctor Smith and Don West.

Robert Naptor, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics, said “At Legendary Comics, we love the new television series, so we couldn’t be more excited to expand the world of show with previously untold comic book adventures” “What is exciting about comic books is that they are not limited by budget—only by the imagination,” said Executive Producers Kevin Burns and Jon Jashni. “This ‘Lost in Space’ comic is no exception. Legendary Comics has outdone themselves this time.”

Contained in here, is a small preview from the book, recounting a mission featuring Penny. The first of four volumes, will be available in October 2018, online, and at your favorite local comic book shop! The subsequent three volumes will come make their debuts throughout 2019!

For those of you who will actually be attending San Diego Comic Con, make sure you that you come out to show some support, by attending the Legendary Comics panel on Friday night, featuring “Lost in Space” comic scribe Richard Dinnick! Also make sure you keep an eye out, as Legendary is putting on various events, and signing throughout the weekend!!

The (brain) Cloud


The cloud or collecting? Today everything is available on demand on any device we happen to have. Siri plays any song we ask her to on Apple Music, we spend more time choosing than watching on Netflix. If we missed our TV show last night Hulu has it today without any commercials. Amazon Prime has anything the others don’t. We can even get our pull on ComiXology. We are living in the best of times when it comes to our ability to enjoy our free time and geekdom.
I will not say it was better in the pre-portable on demand era, but we are missing something.
Focus. We have too much choice. I know what you’re saying (Bear is driving) “But how can that be?”
With our ability to be able to watch, listen, or read anything at any time, we miss so much of the experience of what went into the making of what we enjoy. It’s an embarrassment of riches.
Most of us here being comic book guys remember the experience as a kid of going to the local comic shop and seeing the newest issue of a favorite comic, picking it up ever so gently, placing it on the counter and buying it. Bringing it home and putting everything else aside and focusing on that comic that day. Appreciating the cover, the tactical sensation of holding it in your hands and even the smell of the paper and the ink. Reading every word, enjoying every panel. Looking at the ads for X-Ray Specs made of cardboard and red dyed feathers and imagining being able to see through your second-grade teacher’s clothes without her knowing, other than the big words “X-Ray Specs” on the front. Then back to the story, and even finishing up with the letters at the end. Maybe even read it a second time.
The same could be said for a new album. With LP’s and cassettes we pretty much listened to the whole recording from start to finish as the artist intended. With compact discs, we had the ability to skip around and shuffle or just repeat the songs we liked. Now that music is just floating in the wi-fi enabled air we listen to singles, what’s hot and trendy sometimes never listening to a whole album.
Instant gratification has made our attention spans wane. It has also, in its attempt to be more convenient has made us more stressed out. When The Facts of Life was on, if we didn’t watch it, we didn’t see it. So we made time for it because who would want to miss the episode where Jo Polniaczek would finally come out. Now we can watch whatever, whenever, so we watch it tomorrow. So we overcommit ourselves and sometimes tomorrow never comes at all.
Some of you may remember going to rent a movie. It was an event. The new movies came out on Tuesday, you would ask a potential significant other out to the video rental place, we’d spend about an hour looking through the shelves, finding the perfect movie, and a backup. The smell of artificialy buttered popcorn and Twizzlers had us impulse buy the overpriced concessions at the register. All the while hoping you wouldn’t get to see the end of the movie at all. Blockbuster and chill anyone?
The new way isn’t all bad. We have so much more access to the wealth of human knowledge. We can literally learn everything we would at college online for free and even get a degree. In the before time, most of us did reports on things that started with the letter A because that was the cheap volume of the encyclopedia at the grocery store. There was no B-Z, they were too expensive.
I personally have gone from a hoarder to a purger. Physical copies of books or any type of media can take up a lot of room. Shelves and shelves of everything ever read, watched or even listened to. It takes up a lot of space.
Now all you really need is an iPhone and a place to sit. I’m still slightly old school and like a big ass TV, an iPad, an e-reader, and my iPhone. What will we do with shelves now? Maybe this might set the stage for knickknacks to make a comeback?
Remember, we don’t have the limitations that made us enjoy like we did, but we still have the ability to focus. To make that what we love important again. Listen to the whole album, read that comic, watch a tv show live, sit on a park bench and read a book.

“Too much of anything, Lieutenant, even love, isn’t necessarily a good thing.”
– James T Kirk

Joe R. Lansdale Has His Finger in All the Pop-Culture Pies

With season one of Sundance TV’s “Hap and Leonard” hitting Netflix and the second season on the air right now, I think it’s a good time to go over the many things that Joe Lansdale has done to make the Pop-Culture landscape more amazing. Talking on the Podcast a little bit about him just got me thinking of all the different vehicles that I have run across his writing, from books, to movies, comics and now TV. Somehow this prolific writer has still managed to fly under the radar, but the truth is, you should be consuming his work.
Books

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Having written 47 novels (at least 10 of which involve Hap and Leonard of TV show fame) Lansdale also has dozens of short stories and novellas under his belt. He is one of the more prolific American writers and his focus on excellent genre fiction has made him a stand out star when it comes to westerns, horror and crime fiction. He has won the Bram Stoker award 10 times and has received many others including New York Times Notable Book of the Year and The Raymond Chandler Lifetime Achievement Award. His books are quick reads full of the kind of blood and guts that you can only find in genre fiction. They are worth every moment.
Comic Books

 
Akin to writing novels and short stories is the art of writing comic books. Something that Lansdale is also quite prolific at. With 79 individual issues under his belt he has written everything from his horror sci-fi series The Drive-In and horror western Crawling Sky, to Batman and Conan. He has touched on franchises from DC, Dark Horse, and IDW as well as having some fantastic creator owned titles. His body of work in comics is again very dynamic and easy to read, and flat out a ton of fun.
Movies

Probably best known for his film Bubba Ho-Tep, Lansdale has also had his works adapted into animation (DC Showcase Jonah Hex) and a Master of Horrors episode. His novels Cold in July and The Bottoms are also in production to be made into films. With the success of Hap and Leonard I would be surprised to not see more of his particular brand of fiction made into more movies and…
TV Shows

Obviously the big thing here is that his novel series featuring Hap Collins and Leonard Pine has been adapted into a TV show for Sundance Channel. With the first season on Netflix you can catch up, but the second season is well underway and getting great reviews (only seen the first two episodes myself, both for free on Sundance’s website). He also wrote episodes of Batman the Animated series. With his massive body of short stories to pull from, it would not be a surprise to see more of his work made into TV and short films.
So a quick run down of Joe R. Lansdale. You may have missed him in the past, but now you have no excuse. Go out, look him up, check out some books from the library and prepare to enter a “Rumble Tumble” world that is guaranteed to entertain.

NEW Comics March 22nd 2017

New
Comics Release for 3/22/17

Well I am writing this up on Wednesday
morning, so I am obviously behind, so lets jump right in, shall we?
From Dark Horse this week, Black Hammer is
back after a few months off, with issue #7 hitting stands this week. This issue
focuses on Joe
Weber: the Black Hammer. A hero from the Spiral Slums. A husband. A father.
Gone without a trace. A visitor from the outside world arrives on the farm,
looking for the Black Hammer and bringing news of Spiral City to its Golden Age
heroes. Her arrival stirs up old memories and awakens new hope in the marooned
heroes.

 
From DC this week, lots of 4 issue story arcs
are wrapping up in some of the more popular titles, including Action Comics
#976 which is the finale to the “Superman Reborn” story arc. Written by Dan
Jurgens with art by Doug Mahnke and Jamie Mendoza this finale promises that
Superman’s life will be drastically changed, and you wont want to miss it!

From Image this week a new monthy horror
series called Underwinter begins with issue #1 and is written and drawn by Ray
Fawkes. In this premier Underwinter paints twisted portraits of our dark world
beginning with the perverse, topical “Symphony” – a beautifully painted tale of
music and cruelty in the modern age.

From Marvel this week, hot off the heels of
the Netflix debut, Iron Fist #1 hits the stands. Written by Ed Brisson with art
by Mike Perkins, “The Gauntlet” starts here! Kun Lun is in ruins. The chi
fueling Danny’s fists is wavering. Is there a future for Iron Fist? Danny Rand
pushes himself to the breaking point, finding fights to prove his worth. But a
bigger fight than he can handle may have found him.

Lastly
from Valiant this week, X-O Manowar #1 hits stands. Written by Matt Kindt with
art by Tomas Giorello. Born
under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare
at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien
race. Forced into slavery, he survived where others perished. His escape would
come from bonding with a weapon of immeasurable power: the X-O Manowar armor.
With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern
day. But that was a lifetime ago. Now, far from home on a strange and primitive
new world, Aric has begun a new life. Liberated from his past, he tends to his
crops. Free from war. Free from violence. Free from the armor.But
the machinery of death marches his way once again. Conscripted into an alien
army and thrown into an unforgiving conflict, the fury inside him finds voice
as he is forced to embrace the armor once more. With it, he will decimate
armies, topple empires and incite interplanetary warfare as he rises from
SOLDIER to GENERAL to EMPEROR to VISIGOTH. They wanted a weapon. He will give
them war!
