Ok, here we go.

I haven’t done any new artwork since finishing the TFCon comic. It just knocked the wind out me. It’s about time I got started on something new though. I’m just not quite sure what.

I forgot to mention that I saw The Incredible Hulk. It was very well done and I liked it a lot. But my viewpoint on the movie leading up to its release was somewhat distorted due to a hilarious conversation I had with my 5 year old cousin back in December. He was talking about “Hoak“, and I said “Hoak? Who is Hoak? What is Hoak?” and he replies “Incredible Hoak!” I laughed so hard and I became a running joke. Now every time I hear or read something about Hulk, I think of my cousin saying “Hoak”. It’s even funnier considering that, earlier that same day, he was talking about how Spider-man fights “Octor Doctopus“.

This week I saw “Wanted“, and it was a much better movie than I was expecting. I quite enjoyed it. The visuals were really raw and often pretty brutal, and there was some dark humor to it too. Plus, Angelina Jolie. ‘Nuff said, right?

Batman: Gotham Knight is pretty awesome. Artistically, it’s very diverse, with each of the 3 stories looking completely different, but each of them is uniquely interesting. One looks kind of like a typical modern anime, another had a harder edged anime look, and there was even one that looked just like Hellboy. They’re all decent stories but some are more interesting than others. I’m not going to buy a copy until I get a BluRay player.

Today, for the first time in a long time, I bought an issue of Nintendo Power magazine. It’s the 20th anniversary issue and I figured I might as well check it out. I used to have a subscription and I remember pouring over every last detail of every issue as the months rolled by. It was sort of like being a part of a secret club, the first ever widespread gaming community. Times have changed, and ow the Internet has made Nintendo Power sort of irrelevant in many ways, but it’s still fun to look back at those days. The top 20 games for every Nintendo system is a fun read. Nice to know I have many of them!

More later.
