The following is an interview with artist Brandon Bird, who is one of the curators of the upcoming The JP Show, an art show 65 million years in the making and focused completely on the human characters from Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park film! The exhibit runs December 3rd and 4th, 2011, and is being held at Nucleus in Alhambra, California. (Click HERE for details about the exhibit and a list of participating artists.)

Bird shared his thoughts with Fanboy Comics President Bryant Dillon on the inspiration for his unique and exciting exhibit, what makes the characters of Jurassic Park perfect for this kind of show, and whether you can bring a Velociraptor as your date.

This interview was conducted on Thursday, December 1, 2011.

Killer Abs

By Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Isn't it weird that some serial killers are hot? I realize that statement could put me on a "most wanted" list, but hear me out.

Haven't you ever seen American Psycho? You could bounce a Ginsu knife off of Christian Bale's washboards. Sure, he's got a funny nose, a terrible Batman voice, and a penchant for being a butt smack on the set, but anyone who can wield a chainsaw in the raw is okay in my book.

So, gay characters are coming out of the shadows and respective closets. Even real life homosexuals who play straight characters are coming out of the closet. Sure, innocuous gay characters have been around for ever and ever, amen. Like Paul Lynde, Jim J. Bullock, Siegfried and Roy, and Liberace. Of course, them coming out in the height of their gay hay day would have sent the movement back to the closet faster than Skechers shape-ups.

Now, we have more savory, palatable homolebrities bursting from the closet door like Zach Quinto, Ricky Martin, and Ellen DeGeneres.

Fanboy Comics is proud to announce the upcoming release of Something Animal, its first graphic novel!  Something Animal is a dark, psychological thriller that pulls the vampire myth back into the shadows where it belongs.

 

In the following interviews, Something Animal writers Bryant Dillon and Sam Rhodes, artist Robert Burrows, and editor Barbra Dillon discuss their thoughts on what inspired Something Animal to come to life.


Something Animal will be available for purchase on December 7, 2011, on the Fanboy Comics website!

Thor Spot

By Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Anyone who follows my insanity knows I have a soft spot in my heart for blondes, and Thor is no exception. I think I have my brother to thank for introducing me to the God of Thunder. A girl down the street from us used to sell him used comics for two or three cents, depending on whether it had its cover or not. It used to chap my ass that she would write the price on the book with a marker. (Even at a young age, I was an elitist for quality.)

Thor was always one of the books in the pile and always one of my favorite to look at. What's not to love? It had gorgeous art from Kirby, a leading man who went back and forth from heaven to the real world on a rainbow bridge, and an immortal that let Spider-Man call him "Goldilocks."

Thanks, Gaga!

By Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and, um, Lady Gaga's 90-minute commercial for her new holiday EP and Born This Way remix album- er, rather 90-minute Thanksgiving special, A Very Gaga Thanksgiving.

Anyone who knows me knows I love Lady Gaga. I did try to ca$h in on her popularity with my Gaga tribute comic book, Going Gaga!, after all.

Directed and produced by Gaga herself, I have to say it was highly entertaining and beautifully shot.

The following is an interview with Trevor Roth, producer of Trek Nation, a documentary that follows Gene Roddenberry's son, Rod, as he explores the deep impact of his father's singular vision for the future.

Roth talks to Fanboy Comics President Bryant Dillon about the enduring Star Trek fandom, Rod Roddenberry’s quest to understand his father, and his love and loyalty for Captain Picard!

This interview was conducted on Tuesday, November 29, 2011.

"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and, at times, hard to handle. But, if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." 
― Marilyn Monroe

 

That is one of the many fantastic quotes of the late, great tortured genius Marilyn Monroe.

Sadly, or amazingly - depending of how full your glass is, it is also one of her quotes I relate to the most. I was truly saddened by the tragic death of the blonde bombshell. Of course, she died long before I was born, but it was tragic nonetheless. My mother idolized Norma Jean and passed the torch on to me. (Blonde is as Blonde does!) When I was young, one of my bedroom walls was dedicated to Madonna, but the one I could see while laying in bed was dedicated to Marilyn.

Teen Titans #3 sees the introduction of DC Nu's lame excuse for a bandwagon-riding gay addition to the team with the introduction of "Bunker" (aka Miguel Jose Barragan and his psionic "big purple fist")... Um.

By Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Gay Marriage being legal is eligible for vote again here in California after being legalized for five minutes.

Next week they are thinking about taking back women's right to vote. Up next on the ballot is reinstating slavery. American is writing one embarrassing history book here.

We live in a society where Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian can legally get married for five minutes whenever they want, but when a man loves a man, it is up for vote. How dumb.
