Weekend Table Talk: Fontanalia Edition

It’s Friday the 12th – which is almost as terrifying as Friday the 13th! Stay inside, lock the doors and don’t answer no matter who it is. Or tell your neighbours to do that while you run around the neighbourhood with your favourite machete and hockey mask. Or go to work and have an awful eight hours and blame it on the day, rather than the fact that your boss was a former ostrich rancher and doesn’t really know how to communicate with humans. Or just read this stuff.

It’s New York Comic-Con this Weekend

So if you’re in the neighbourhood, stop by and hang with Brian Azarello, Grant Morrison and an elderly Jewish fellow named Stan Lee. It advertises itself as “the biggest and most exciting popular culture convention on the East Coast.” Which is awfully specific, so it may suck. The latest news to come out of it so far is that Scott Snyder and Jim Lee are working on a new Superman book for next year.

Oh, and there is Ninja Turtles LEGO

Another announcement courtesy New York Comic-Con. Your eight-year-old self is currently jumping off the walls and walking back and forth trying not to look excited. Your current self is wondering whether your parents will still get you a LEGO set for Christmas.

Or if they’ll get it for you in advance.

Marvel is in reboot denial

According to Axel Alonso, “[Marvel Now!] is not a reboot. We’re simply hitting the ‘refresh’ button.” Which is kinda like saying, “I’m not drunk. I’ve simply consumed a number of alcoholic beverages and can’t really walk.”

Guillermo Del Toro is releasing a Pacific Rim comic

Pacific Rim is probably going to rule, because Guillermo Del Toro rules at making movies. Simple facts. Another fact: Del Toro is releasing a prequel comic before the movie comes out next July 12. Because you needed a reason to buy more comics.

Also, Idris Elba should just take all of Tom Cruise’s roles from now on. Actually, scratch that. All of Tom Cruise’s roles suck now, so he can have them.

Would you trade the Batmobile for a Kia?

No? What if the Batmobile was a Kia? Change your mind? Yeah, fair enough. Even if it does look like Bruce Wayne’s soccer mom edition, it still probably drives like shit.

Or, as they say, “like a Kia.”

And finally… Check out an awesome Young Avengers #1 variant cover by Bryan Lee O’Malley (the Scott Pilgrim dude)
