I can't believe all of the feedback that I am gettting regarding Projekt Werwolf, it is amazing. And, I can't say enough about Patrick Coyle and Komikwerks, they have done such a great job getting us publicity and exposure. And, on top of that my friend Chris Carman recently gave us a plug in his latest blog update. If you haven't checked out Chris' work yet, his link is in my list- check it out!
Anyways, at last count these are the comic news sites that have run articles on PW:

Looks freaking awesome. I remember reading the trade, and thought it'd make a great sequel to the 1st movie. This looks like Hellboy II had a bigger budget than the 1st one. I don't know if they did, but it sure looks like it. Looks fantastic.

Basically, it breaks down like this:
Ray Park as Snake Eyes: Okay, this one I get. It makes perfect sense you need an amazing martial artist to play this part. Ray has the right vibe, I would have probably made the exact same casting choice if this were my movie.
Sienna Miller as The Baroness: Okay, I can see this happening.
Sam Worthington as Duke: Again, I can see this as a real possibility. He is a very good actor, and I imagine Duke will have the majority of lines in the film - so this makes sense.
Byun-Hun Lee as Storm Shadow: Again, you need an amazing martial artist, and he fits the bill. Another great casting choice. After all, GIJOE is not just another action movie, it should be the greatest ACTION movie of all time and the greatest ninja movie of all time.
Rachel Nichols as Scarlett: I'm not sure if Rachel Nichols has any background in the martial arts or small arms combat, and I'm not sure if she's a good actor. As it is, I can only think of two reasons she would be offered the part. But, they sure are good reasons.
Said Taghmaoui as Breaker: Uh, yeah Breaker...... whatever. Great choice. I guess.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Heavy Duty: Okay, that tears it! I'm sure this guy is a great actor and everything, but Heavy Duty?!@! WTF!!! is he doing in the GIJOE movie? Do you have any idea how hard it was to even find a picture of "Heavy Duty" on the internet? He was never a part of the cartoon, and has no fans.
Give the people what they want! Give them ROADBLOCK! Roadblock is one of the most popular GIJOE characters ever, to not have him in the movie would be a crime. I also know the perfect person to play him. Think about it, who is:
FAMILIARITY WITH LARGE GUNS
That is right none other than the Mailman himself people - KARL MALONE. He is still in great shape, and born to play this part.
Asked about making movies, the Mailman had this to say:
Karl, a few players have gone on to successful movie careers. If the opportunity presented itself would you give it a try?
Without a doubt, but it'd have to be an action-packed kind of movie. It couldn't be like "Romancing the Stone" or something like that. It'd have to be like an unbelievable green beret rescue action hero -- you know, something like that.
Sounds like the door is wide open. Hollywood, make it happen!

The new trailer for "The Dark Knight" premiered online today, this looks awesome! And, if I'm not mistaken will probably just be the tip of the iceberg as far as what this movie has in store for us. I don't know about you but Christopher Nolan ranks in my book as one the top 5 directors working today, I've loved every film I've seen of his and he is batting a thousand (no pun intended). Looks like he hit this one out of park too!

This time it's my alma matta the Academy of Art University, running an interview with me and Kev about "Projekt Werwolf", looks pretty good. I'm really happy with several things in this article:
1. They spelt my name right
2. They provided links to the Comic and this blog
3. They included some art for show
I couldn't have asked for more than that to check it out just click on this!
It is the top story on this website:

Anyways the first thing that this theme reminded me of was Continuity Comics Urth 4. Which was kind of a take on the Fantastic Four and a pre-cursor to Captain Planet. Anyways, I think I bought every issue.
Others who came to mind include:
* if the Pyro, Sandman, Hydro-Man and Elektro ever became a super-team they would be Marvel Comics' evil version of Earth 4.

Okay, sense I posted Italian Spiderman, it only seems right to also post this- Japanese Spider-Man! As I understand it, this show was done back when Japan didn't have much respect for U.S. copyright law, and was done without Marvel's permission or knowledge. Although you do see in the credits they give Marvel copyright credit. I gotta say though, Spider-Man vs Big Japanese robots could be fun.

I was a bit of a weirdo, and my favorite character was Hawkeye (that's right Bendis, another one of us). But, I never really cared much for any of the DC characters, I was a huge fan of the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve and later the Batman movie by Tim Burton. Of course, I didn't like Batman until about the 3rd or 4th viewing, and then I LOVED it. That's true about all Tim Burton movies with me though, and a story for another day.
So why am I buying DC now? I guess because they've done a better job in the exclusive contracts war. They've got the top talent, that I like. I think it started with the Kubert Bros. But, now it seems they've got the lions share of talent in the comic world. I mean Grant Morrison is writing Batman. How do you not pick that up? Chuck Dixon is writing Batman and the Outsiders, with art by Julian Lopez - who I must confess I was not familiar with, but his art blew me away. Gail Simone and the Dodson's on Wonder Woman- wow! And, Mark Waid and George Perez are doing the Brave and the Bold. What more could anyone ask for?!

Today, Kevin sent me this. This..... masterpiece. He went back and inked it himself. And dang if he didn't knock it out of the park. I even love the signature.

Today it is finally up! You can view "Projekt Werwolf" at www.komikwerks.com Please go and check it out. It will be there as a webcomic with weekly updates of new pages. I am really excited to be working with Komikwerks, and hope that something really good can come from the added exposure that they are offering this book.
Strongbad gave me some advice on how to do a webcomic, and I thought it was pretty good:

These are some sketches my friend Kevin Shriver did of Flash Gordon. We are both big fans of the campy 70's movie with Sam Jones, and I just picked up the Saviour of the Universe Edition on DVD- Sweet! I just saw the new series on Sci-fi this week, and was quite underwhelmed. Don't you hate it when you want to love something but don't. Anyways, I do love these sketches, and if you want to see more of Kevin's work you can check it out at www.kevinshriver.com and you can check out the comic book we've been working on at www.drunkduck.com/Projekt_Werwolf

This one was done on a whim. Superman is my wife's favorite superhero, and this sketch was done for her as an anniversary present. She is big on Clark Kent and Superman, so I had to find a way to draw them both. She loved it. Click! on the image to view a larger version.
Something me and my friends kick around quite a bit when talking about movies and comic book movies is casting could-a-beens. This was one of the big ones, Kurt Russell as Han Solo. So, I thought I'd throw it down on paper and see what it might have looked like. Turns out, Kurt wouldn't have been half bad.
