We start and end with the Royal One of the Undersea as Chris shows off some Namor artwork, then we delve into crime as Sam talks up CRIMINAL, compares to STRAY BULLETS and SIN CITY, and talk up potential dream directors for Brubaker and Phillip’s masterpiece.

We then yammer about some books with ALMIGHTY’s Ed LaRoche, including recent X-FACTOR, ASTONISHING SPIDER-MAN/WOLVERINE #3, THUNDERBOLTS, SHADOWLAND: POWER MAN, Kieron Gillen’s THOR run, we go back to last week and grill Chris on his NEMISIS #3 throwdown, and talk up scripting for artists compared to the artist doing it all. Last, we touch on the GI:JOE – COBRA SPECIAL, X-MEN LEGACY #240, WONDER WOMAN #603, THE TECHNOPRIESTS, NAMOR #2, PRISON PIT by Johnny Ryan, and we ask Chris a hard question – should Namor and Sue ever be together?

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MOM & POPS! LOS ANGELES!

GO SEE A MOVIE AT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SILENT THEATER THIS WEEKEND. MEET COMIC LEGENDS WILE YOU’RE AT IT!

Cinefamily compatriot Family Books brings you a jam-packed afternoon of savory comic book history with an adventurous bent! In celebration of his new comic anthology Art in Time: Unknown Comic Books Adventures, 1940-1980, art director/editor Dan Nadel (leader of Picturebox, one of NYC’s coolest publishing imprints) will present an afternoon of book signings and conversations with notable cartoonists about the impact of adventure comics on popular culture. First, Dan will begin with an overview of adventure comics — from crime to cavemen, and back again! Next up, “Angry Youth”/”Prison Pit” author (and Cinefamily cover artist) Johnny Ryan interviews Lawrence Hubbard, co-creator of the raw ‘n riotous comic series “Real Deal”, set against the backdrop of a crime-ridden South Central. Later, join underground greats Sharon Rudahl, John Thompson and Barbara (Willy) Mendes in a panel discussion on their work, and on the milieu of 1960s subversive comics! Wrapping up the show is “Love And Rockets” co-creator Jaime Hernandez presenting a screening of the 1949 Joseph L. Mankiewicz classic A Letter To Three Wives, followed by a discussion with Jaime on the film, moderated by cartoonist Sammy Harkham. This historic event is a must for any serious comic fan — be sure to get your tickets early!

Comedy Meltdown » Adventurous Cartoonists & Far-Out Comics (w/ live appearances by Jaime Hernandez, Johnny Ryan & others!) The Cinefamily.

So JR JR stops by Meltdown yesterday and on the way out he drop info about his latest and greatest project: “PRISON PIT Book One”

Wha?! having no idea of what he was talking about he proceeds to show us the best webpage in the world: MONSTER BRAINS!

This site will make the door marked “Famous Monster of Filmland” in your brain open up and want to whiff Glue wile building Aurora kits again. SICK!

MONSTER BRAINS! has 4 pages plus extensive links to “PRISON PIT Book One”

All I can say is that “PRISON PIT Book One” is rad looking and stomps on Savage Sword of Conan, Fist of the Northstar & Planet HULK. (insert here X had a baby with Y and begat “PRISON PIT Book One”)

Go to MONSTER BRAINS! and peep all the greatness.
