Well it’s hard to see this film as anything but an Alien prequel now.
Directed by Alien’s Ridley Scott and starring Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender, it opens next year, and it will be awesome, I’m sure.
See the comparison, and notes describing the similarities between the 1979 Alien teaser and this first Prometheus one, right here.
Every year there’s some great Christmas cards from comics publishers. Here’s an assortment of 2011′s.
From Sonny Liew, creator of Malinky Robot.
UK publisher Com.x (45, Seeds, Blue Spear)
Archaia (Mouse Guard, Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand – my fave OGN of 2011!)
Here’s a treat from nerdcore band Kirby Krackle. You can grab their new single, focused on a certain crimson nosed reindeer right here.
and here’s a fitting pic that I put on the Extra Sequential Facebook page (become our friend if you aren’t already!) from artist Mike del Mundo. I think it sums up mine and Mladen’s comics leanings quite well.
Finally, here’s Broken Frontier, a wonderful site that I write for and at that very site is where you can find more cards from other publishers and creators.
Well, pretty much all of them courtesy of artist Benjamin Moore, and thanks to Comics Alliance for bringing this to my attention. It’s a great rundown of the Dark Knight’s various looks since 1939 in comics, cartoons, TV series and films, with snappy quotes of the era.
