Not only is this Saturday Free Comic Book Day, but from noon on Saturday to noon on Sunday, The Launchpad will be hosting a 24 hour Game-A-Thon, which you can read more about here. For the entirety of that 24 hours, I will be there with a couple mics and allowing people to share their favorite stories and memories about David Phillips. For those who would like to share a story, or memory, but cannot attend the event you can send an email or a recording of your story to email@example.com or leave a voicemail on our voicemail (209)-625-9018. Thank you.
I just wanted to take a minute and point you guys to the Kickstarter that just dropped for the new book from Fifth Dimension Comics, The Magician: The Long Day.
Written by David M. Brown, with art by the mighty D.N.S. and letters and design by Robin Jones, The Magician is a violent look at the 70’s that drives into the dirt, grime, violence, and dark humor of professional killers, scumbags, criminals and more. Having gotten a look at things ahead of time, I can tell you it is disturbing, and funny, and well worth a look.
Here’s the short version, from the mouth of my daughter as we were walking out of the theater, “some dude tried to get everyone to clap after the movie, but I just wanted to say the C-word.” After I stopped laughing, curiosity got the better of me, and I gave her permission to say it.
“I just kept watching the movie, and thinking, this movie is,” looks over both of her shoulders, making sure no one would hear her, and whispers, “crap.”
I was pleased to find out she has a different definition of the C-word than me. And she was right about the movie.
I’m about to dive into the final two issues of Omega: The Unknown, before the real end comes in The Defenders. As this is getting closer to the conclusion, there will be SPOILERS AHOY! After the jump of course.
Happy 4th of July from The Gravy Age, be safe, try not to blow off your thumbs or testicles tonight. New episode, interviews and more coming soon. Just spent a week up in the mountains while the kiddos had a day camp, haven’t had a chance to read anything at all. What’s coming up?
