COMICS

– “The Hard Goodbye”, Frank Miller’s first Sin City story, begins its serialization in Dark Horse Presents #51.

X-Force #1 by Rob Liefeld & Fabian Nicieza sells 4 million copies, making it one of biggest-selling comics of all time.

Bone by Jeff Smith begins.

X-Men #1 by Chris Claremont & Jim Lee sells 8.1 million copies, making it the biggest-selling single issue from an American publisher, a record it still holds.

Sandman #19 by Neil Gaiman & Charles Vess becomes the first comic to win a World Fantasy Award; it remains the only comic to do so, as the rules for the award were changed soon after to disallow a comic from winning again.

two movies with tilda swinton, and bonus point brad pitt

oh man, guys, i can’t wait to see this gem, it looks like it is really going to be a gem. it’s directed by david fincher, who did panic room, zodiac and ha, some thing about aerosmith, and it’s based on a story by f. scott fitzgerald who wrote some stuff back in the day, like the great gatsby. the story is about a man who ages backwards, i.e. from old man to little man! did i mention that brad pitt’s daughter shiloh is going to be in this film? reason to see it right there. plus, come on…huge bonus of cate blanchett. comes out in december.

the curious case of benjamin button

second movie, which looks great but i could be partial to the coen brothers, george clooney, brad pitt, tilda swinton, john malkovich, the dad from juno, and every other part of this movie so actually i think it’s going to be pretty good and it’s not just my partiality. comes out in september, not soon enough.
