Church Signs – A Parody Song

This song.

Yes, this.

I’m not a big fan of church signs and their cheesy one liners. And this song pretty much sums up how I feel.

Enjoy.

Comic of the Week – The Unwritten: Apocalypse #2

2014-02-24 10.28.29The Unwritten: Apocalypse #2

W: Mike Carey

P: Peter Gross

Vertigo put out the kind of comics I love to read. Ever since I started seriously reading comics, I’ve always hunted down that Vertigo label. Even when I don’t enjoy the comic, I know it will be at least different to everything else on the stands. And maybe even expand my mind a little bit.

When The Unwritten began a few years ago, you just knew this was going to be something special. The story started out as a conspiracy tale starring Tom Taylor, a man who had a series of Harry Potter like stories based off him. As the series has progressed, it’s become clearer that this is a story about stories – and the distinction between story and reality has got blurrier with every issue.

Comic of the Week: Deadpool #23

2014-02-13 18.57.31Deadpool #23

W: Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan

P: Mike Hawthorne

Deadpool can be pretty hit and miss with me. The Joe Kelly run in the late 90s was one of my early favourites when I first started getting into comics (in fact I recently bought the Joe Kelly Deadpool Omnibus, which will make me very happy for a very long time). Since Kelly stopped writing the character, I haven’t really stayed that attached to the Merc With a Mouth. But this current run, which began with Marvel NOW, has really hit that Deadpool sweet spot – funny, dark and very violent.

Coming Soon: The Ten Commandments

2014-02-07 16.43.49Heard of the Ten Commandments? Sure you have. They’re right there in Exodus 20. Maybe you’re not as familiar with the actual commandments, but have at least heard of the movie. The one with Charlton Heston, of course. The others aren’t really worth watching.

No matter how familiar you are with these laws for God’s people, you might be keen to check out an upcoming TV show based on the Ten Commandments. Ten directors, including Michael Cera and Wes Craven have been signed on to create a ten part anthology series, each episode based around one of the commandments.

Comic Panel of the Week: The Movement #9

2014-02-06 17.35.28The Movement #9

W: Gail Simone

P: Freddie Williams II

The Movement is a superhero team book that’s a bit different to what we usually see from the Big 2. These characters aren’t so much heroes – they’re the super powered members of an underground “movement” in a city full of corruption and inequality. These are broken characters in a broken city, with no clear vision of how to make things right. Which opens it up for all kinds of moral ambiguity and conflicting motives.
