Pop Culture News Roundup 01.23.09

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Pop Culture News Roundup

ITEM! Diamond Distribution adjusts its benchmark for products it will carry! I haven’t read all the blog posts that talk about this issue, but I did read some articles that explain the issue clearly. As far as I can tell, this will mostly affect the small press guys. I’m a mainstream whore so, yeah. It’s not the end of the world for me.

ITEM! DC announces Origins and Omens creative teams! I didn’t really like the whole Faces of Evil stunt, and I’m not that interested with the Origins and Omens concept either. But hey, you’ll never when you’ll stumble upon a real gem of a comic amidst all the editorial bullshit, right?

ITEM! The Human Torch and Emo Superman join the cast of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World! Chris Evans and Brandon Routh will play 2 of the 7 evil ex-boyfriendsf Scott Pilgrim’s ladylove. Sounds interesting, but still not sure about the whole idea. I should really get the graphic novels ASAP.

Meet Your New Rulers

My mind is still recovering from the last page mindblowery of last week’s Captain Britain And MI13 #9, and now I think it’s suffering from EPIC MIND MELTERY because of this teaser image for next month’s CPaMI13 #10:

I for one welcome our new rulers.

Dracula. And DOCTOR FRICKEN’ DOOM. At an Apollo landing site on the moon. If that doesn’t say “ROCK N’ ROLL, BRUVA!”, I don’t know what does.

Dracula > Dead Batman in Sad Superman’s Arms

Last week, I only bought two comic books: Final Crisis #6 and Captain Britain And MI13 #9. Most of the Internet nerds can’t stop raving about the last page of FC #6. I can’t blame them.

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Pop Culture News Roundup

popcultnewsroundup

If you’re anything like me, I love browsing through my feeds, scouring for interesting news all over the Internet. It’s a dirty job, but it’s worth it when I find those face-rocking news items. I’m here now to share to you comics and pop culture news that I found this week. This is actually me continuing what I started with Comics News Roundup, only more pop culture-y.

ITEM! Heath Ledger posthumously received the Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actor! It was for his legendary role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, which I’ve already watched a bajirrion times. Nerds all over the Internet are now hoping for an Oscar. FOR HEATH!

ITEM! First OFFICIAL Winnie the Pooh story in 80+ years! The first authorized sequel to “Winnie the Pooh and the House at Pooh Corner” is entitled “Return to the Hundred Acre Wood” and will be released on October 5th, 2009. I haven’t read the original, but hey. Maybe it’s time that I do.

ITEM! Patrick McGoohan and Ricardo Montalban passed away. Rest in peace, legends of Geekdom.

Bow Down to Blackagar Boltagon!

In Secret Invasion: War of Kings, the Inhumans have successfully invaded the Kree empire. No surprise here. I mean, come on. We’re talking about a whole race of superpowered freaks living in a city that turns into a rad space ship here. Not even Ronan the Accuser can resist kneeling before the king of the Inhumans, the super awesome and super pissed Black Bolt.

That’s right, beeyotch. Bow down to the king! Bow down to Blackagar Boltagon!

Let us also note that before the Inhumans conquered the Kree empire, they decimated the remaining Skrull fleet (the douchebags who fled after their Secret Invasion failed), trespassed on Shi’Ar space and crushed three of their Warbirds. That’s badass.

If the rest of War of Kings is as flashy and epic as this, I say BRING IT!
