Carnal CoverCarnal: Pride of the Lions is the first in a series of five illustrated graphic novels from Sea Lion Books, in which humans have fallen to the bottom of the food chain and lions, hyenas, and other animals have evolved into humanistic creatures that battle for dominance and survival.  Co-writer and artist John Connell talks with Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon about how the graphic novel began, his own artistic influences, and what is up next for the Carnal series.

 

This interview was conducted on April 11, 2012.

 

Stunt OscarsNow that the 84th Annual Academy Awards are in the history books, this is the time of year that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) revises some of the categories, reviews the show, and makes changes to the overall voting rules.  This year, there is big buzz surrounding stunt performers petitioning the Academy to get their work recognized at the Oscars.  Last year, there was a changing of the guard with Bruce Davis stepping down as Executive Director of the Academy and Dawn Hudson moving from Film Independent to replace him. The performers felt now was the opportune time to bring up the topic again. In a recent Hollywood Reporter article, Jack Gill, a veteran stunt performer, says that Hudson “seems to be a lot more receptive than the others.”  He has already started discussions with Hudson to make this a reality.

 

From the Trailer to the GraveOut of a desire to work with like-minded individuals, a fondness for the campy horror comedies and grindhouse classics from the ‘70s and ‘80s, and an unabashed love of Wyoming comes From the Trailer to the Grave, a film that will birth a new genre, the RedZomRomCom (Redneck Zombie Romantic Comedy).  Actor/Writer/Producer K. Harrison Sweeney is bringing together five lead alumni of 2010's Game of the Year, Red Dead Redemption, as well as FANGORIA magazine's frequently featured "Scream Queen" Lindsay Goranson, Mark Fite of Mr. Show with Bob & David notoriety, Jim Turner from HBO's Arli$$, and Ken Campbell from FOX's ‘90s sitcom cult hit, Herman's Head.  Also on board is comic/graphic novel artist Guy LeMay (Image Comics' Dead@17, Viper Comics' The Rabid), who will be providing storyboard/end credit art, as well as Los Angeles-based band The Peculiar Pretzelmen, who will be using their early 20th century blues/rag-rock sound to score the film.  Currently in preproduction and on schedule to film in August of 2012, it’s sure to be a wild romp of guffaws and guts!  Everything sounds very exciting, and Fanboy Comics Senior Contributor Ben Rhodes got a chance to chat with co-star and publicist Steve J. Palmer about the film, the contest that they have entered to fund this and other awesome projects from Big Horn Samurai Sinema, and what the hell a Redneck Zombie Romantic Comedy is anyway!

Flex Metallo MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Fans of brawny men, brainy yarns, and drug addicts will rejoice as DC/Vertigo FINALLY released a collected version of the Flex Mentallo three-issue miniseries, which was originally released some 15 years ago. Apparently, Flex was tied up in litigation with Charles Atlas' people. Tarzan, Conan, dirty knees, look at these.  It's not as if strong men in animal frocks are the most original thing since canned beer.

Hunter Black creatorsHunter Black is a dark, fantasy webcomic written by Justin Peniston and illustrated by William Orr.  Prior to their attendance at C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) this weekend, the creators sat down with Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon to discuss how Hunter Black became a webcomic, their thoughts on the digital comics revolution, and their own favorite comics.

Pink Slime MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Pink is my second favorite color right after baby blue; however, current events may change all that.  What the hell am I talking about? Well, they say ignorance is bliss and the ignorant are probably happily gobbling down some tainted ground love.

Pink slime is the culprit of which I speak...otherwise known as the mystery meat treated with ammonia used as a filler in lean, textured ground beef. Ralph!
