Hey gang! Hope everyone had a great week! Things are ridiculous here at Skybound leading up to SDCC. It’s less than a month away so it’s about the time when we all stop laughing about how busy we are and just start working non-stop. Tears and booze will soon follow.
Hopefully I’ll have a new assistant to introduce to you all soon. Going through the applications now! Stay tuned! Here’s what hit the site this week:
ISSUE #142 CAME OUT! Our discussion post is up and—as usual—we’re giving away a copy of it signed by Robert Kirkman. You should really weigh in.
Speaking of issue #142, our FB admin Zac posted five questions readers might have for #142. How many of them got answered? Find out! (Spoiler: not many!)
In a Friday Poll, I asked readers who, from the show, they’d want by their side in a zombie apocalypse. The leader isn’t too surprising, but I am a little surprised he’s not ahead by more. And my boy Glenn is putting up a fight!
Although we usually stray from talk of outside projects, we really couldn’t resist when Jon Bernthal scored an epic role in Netflix’s Daredevil.
EW’s Dalton Ross posted an absurd number of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD articles! We highlighted and linked to them. Lots of cool info that doesn’t really spoil the show but gives you a better idea what to expect.
And last, still on the FEAR tip, AMC rolled out a new, grungier logo for FEAR THE WALKING DEAD and I like it!
Fun fact: it’s 10pm in a Friday night so I’m watching BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA while I post this. It’s my favorite movie of all time, hands-down. If they actually decide to remake it, I’ll be like this:
From 1 Fan’s Perspective:
ARTICLE OF THE WEEK: Jon Bernthal. (((Shane))). The Punisher. Daredevil! Daredevil is already awesome enough… if you aren’t watching, you need to stop thinking about Ben Affleck & get on it!! Now you have 1 more clue that there’s awesomeness to come!!
I’m still waiting on my #142. The wait for delivery is harder than the wait for release! And if the mailman bends another package, there’s gonna be claws & fur flying!
I’m probably the only frequenter of this site that is not so thrilled about “Fear the Walking Dead”. BUT I didn’t think anything about the sickly-looking man with a gunshot wound waking up in a hospital bed either. Here’s hoping “Fear” can tap into at least half of that greatness. Oh, & let’s not forget that Kirkman’s “Air” is coming up in Aug., too… probably right before “Fear” takes off! We’re talking Djimon Hounsou!! Reedus is in it, too… yeah, there’s that. Speaking of Reedus…
Most people think Daryl would make a better companion in an apocalypse. Aside from the heat of Reedus fanchicks, I guess I can understand why. He’s been an excellent right-hand man. I didn’t pick him because I would need just as much mental/emotional support as physical & Glenn trumps him in that regard. Besides, if he attempted to do to me what he did to Beth, including wasting any form of liquid courage, I’d have to kill ’em.
SIDEBAR: Remakes should be done for movies that need one & all the others left alone. PERIOD!
From all the news going around about Big Trouble in Little China, I believe it is 100% going to be remade. Might have a delay or two and some casting issues but it will come out… I believe “The Rock” is in takes to star… again, they will make it, just a matter of time but they can never “remake” the “magic” of the original.
