So my Wife Pikkeldylli is tabling her first Con @rosecitycomiccon I’m not sure who is more excited!!! Come by her table and check out her stuff..She will be taking commissions for custom drink sleeves and quilts! The more she sells..the more I get to spend on other peoples art ..but don’t tell her that!
This coming weekend (September 19-21) I will be attending the Cincinnati Comic Expo with the AW YEAH Comics Publishing crew. I’ll be doing sketches, signing copies of AW YEAH Comics (including the recently released collection of that series!) and Captain Action Cat # 4. New to the show I will have some Franklin Halloween cards! This 4 card set features Franklin and some other itty bitty monsters that will show up in the Franklin series soon. These are perfect to give to your favorite ghoul! True story.
‘DEADPOOL’ MOVIE GETS GO-AHEAD AT FOX; WILL RYAN REYNOLDS FINALLY MAKE A DECENT COMICS MOVIE?
Deadpool lives. Marvel’s Merc with the Mouth will finally get his own solo movie after years in production limbo according to an announcement by Twentieth Century Fox, which has scheduled the picture for a February 2016 release — on Valentine’s Day weekend, no less. Deadpool is love.
Tim Miller is attached to direct, and Ryan Reynolds is expected to reprise his role from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though no official deal has been announced. Fox also pushed back its Josh Trank-directed Fantastic Four movie from June 19th 2015 to August 7th, to cover for a Michael Fassbender Assassin’s Creed movie that’s been bumped off the calendar due to production delays.
The presence of Miller at the helm on Deadpool is good news for anyone who enjoyed the test footage that leaked back in July. That footage was created by Miller and Reynolds back in 2012 in an effort to revive interest in the dormant project. It didn’t have the desired effect at the time, but the cleverly timed leak in the aftermath of San Diego Comic-Con seems to have had more impact.
