Jimmy Palmiotti Picks his Five Sexiest Noir Films

I’ve been a fan of Jimmy Palmiotti for quite a while and I love all his work. His last Kickstarter with his group at Paperfilms was DENVER and it is a terrific book. They are currently running a kickstarter for a follow up to the popular SEX AND VIOLENCE. With a title like that how can you not be intrigued? I’ve been thrilled with every book Jimmy is involved with and can’t wait for this one. In the spirit of the nature of the book Jimmy gave us a list of what he considers the sexiest noir films. ~ Jon Here’s Jimmy: Sexy Noir usually includes a Femme Fatale, and I think these films featured some of the best. Other than postman, I kept...

SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN with Kate (and Dan) Aug28

SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN with Kate ...

K: Lotta buzz going around the inter-webs about Wonder Woman being cast in the new Superman/Batman joint. D: Yeah. SUPERMAN/BATMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE? Laaame. Snore. Yawn. K: Hey! She doesn’t even get title credits?! I mean she’s freaking WONDER WOMAN!!! Linda Carter wouldn’t put up with this. ::picks up wall phone, dials, stares at receiver, forgets we longer have land-line:: D: ::Googles movie Wonder Woman images:: Does Lucy Lawless know these movie folks bit her look? WW is looking a bit like the Warrior Princess in these stills. K: True enough. But let’s look at this for a second. I mean, Linda Carter? This Xena-style WW? The current book...

BLACK PANTHER: THE CLIENT

Marvel Comics 1998   Look around you. We live in a Golden Age of comics. Think about it: Superman t-shirts are sold at Old Navy stores. I have two. Superhero movies are guaranteed MEGA HITS every year! Guardians of the Galaxy just made 100 million on opening weekend. I say again: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Geek culture isn’t geek culture anymore; it’s just culture. Amazing, isn’t it? I invite you to sit back and remember a time not that long ago, when comics were not king. Back in 1998, Marvel Comics were just coming out of the throes of bankruptcy. Looking for a way to regain that spark of something special, Marvel outsourced four of...

SALLY OF THE WASTELAND WITH KATE (AND DAN)

  Dan, Kate, and The Dog are enjoying a warm, late summer evening on the deck. Let’s listen in, shall we? Maybe they’re fighting, or using a bunch of swears! Dan: ::looking wistful:: Do you remember that time I wanted to join a motorcycle gang? Kate: Imsorrywhat? D: You remember. We went to the Harley Davidson Museum and we saw all of that cool motorcycle stuff. The badass bikes, the “Easy Rider” culture… the leather jackets and motorcycle chains… K: I thought your favorite part was the AMF-era scooter? I don’t think the Hell’s Angels would let someone in the gang with a sea-foam scooter. ::waves ala Audrey Hepburn in ROMAN HOLIDAY::...

Batman #232 with Kate (and Dan) Jul31

Batman #232 with Kate (and Dan)

::Kate sits alone in a dark room. The only light is coming from a single floor lamp, casting a brilliant light over the right side of her face. The harsh light makes her eye tear, but she’s too stubborn to adjust the shade. Also, she sits with her fingers tented like Mr. Burns from The Simpsons. ‘Cause she thinks it looks cool.:: K: That’s a really long opening. Do you think anyone is still reading? D: I dunno. Does anyone ever read this? K: Good call. I hear we have tens of readers. D: Enough of this Rosencrantz and Guildenstern behind-the-curtain business. K: Ok. Right. Here goes. ::clears throat:: Soon… SOON… SOOON… the world will feel...

SUPERMAN #32 with Kate (and Dan) Jul17

SUPERMAN #32 with Kate (and Dan)

::Kate sits in the backyard with a well-worn Uncle Sam top hat on her head, surrounded by long-dead sparklers and empty pie tins. Sadness, as they say, prevails.:: D: Like the bartender asked the horse, “Hey, Celine Dion, why the long face?” K: ::tears up:: I miss America. D: ::sticks finger in ear:: What? You’re Miss America? K: No, dummy. I MISS America. D: We’ve only left the country once and they let us back in. And that was just a lame daytrip to Thunder Bay. Look around, sweetie. Nothing says “America” like St. Paul, Minnesota. How can you miss something that you’re sitting in the middle of? K: First, it was the Fourth of July and all...
