Triage 1And, WE Comics has done it again!  Another new comic and writer Mairghread Scott and artist Candace Ellis have hit it out of the park.  Triage is geared more towards adults than the other WE Comics fare; it’s snappy and slightly disturbing, and the first issue is a strong opener for what promises to be a really great comic.

Agent 88Kickstarter campaigns have enabled thousands of independent creators to bring their work to a larger audience, and with so many worth projects in need of funding, it can be difficult to choose which projects to fund.  Well, if having the support of Heavy Metal Magazine and Diamond Select Toys is any indication, the Kickstarter campaign for the web series Agent 88 is a sure bet.

With only 12 days remaining in their campaign to reach their goal of $88,000, Agent 88 creators Digger T. Mesch of Dig Deep Entertainment and Producer Jan Utstein-O'Neill of Hurricane Entertainment have good reason to be excited by their web series.  For those unfamiliar with the project, Agent 88 is a web series that introduces the world's most deadly poster assassin: an 88-year-old British woman with Alzheimer's disease.  In this odd-ball, kung fu epic described by the creators as Kill Bill meets Mr. Magoo, London theatre actress Kay D'Arcy (Criminal Minds) will star under the guest direction of director/producer Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse, Grimm Fairy Tales).      

Legion Lost 152 Catch Up is a series devoted to looking at issues from DC's New 52 and seeing how they're faring now that they're underway, why they're worth reading (or not), and places we hope they will go in time.

 

Concept:

Seven young heroes from the future are sent back in time to stop a tragic event from changing the course of history.  Throughout their time in our present, they encounter criminals, government agents, police officers, and normal citizens who don’t understand what’s happening to them.  Forever unsure of their chances of getting home, they are the Legion (of Superheroes) Lost.

Power of the DaleksThe FFOW! series takes a look at that vast library created by the proud and the passionate: fan films.  Whether the budget and talent is astronomical or amateur, FFOW! celebrates the filmmakers whose love of comics, books, movies, video games, and TV shows inspires them to join the great conversation with their own homemade masterpieces.


This week’s film comes recommended by Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Drew Siragusa, the man who introduced me to the Doctor.  That makes him a good friend.  Likewise, this Doctor Who fan film is a great piece.

Violence banAfter last week's tragedy in Aurora, Colorado, it was only a matter of time before we heard pundits hop on CNN and MSNBC and tout the "Violence and Hollywood" angle as a possible motive.  A secondary thread to this is "Violence and Video Games," and that is also another factor in this case.  Many folks want to take a look at MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) ratings, because PG-13 films have the same amount of violence, suggestive scenes, and language that a Rated R film did ten years ago.  Has violence in Hollywood movies escalated?  Sure.  I would hardly argue with that statement, as torture porn movies like Saw came in vogue and sophomoric sex humor encouraged by the success of the Judd Apatow movies grew.  I think we have become accustomed to tolerating more in our PG-13 movies as trends and social mores have changed.
