I just read that Al Williamson, known for his work on numerous EC title, Flash Gordon and Star Wars, to name but a few, has passed away at the age of 79. Sad news indeed. Luckily the talent lives on through the artwork.

Autoplaying at full volume when I have several tabs on this site set to open automatically when I start my browser? That's unprofessional and just plain fucking rude. My choices are a) always remember to ensure I turn my sound off before visiting AICN and b) Never again visit AICN. Fuck's sake.

Now if that was really "Executive Assistant ISIS", about the Goddess Mighty ISIS, currently working a 9 to 5 as some asshole boss's executive assistant, you might have something...

Don't you feel just a little ashamed to keep hyping a book that trades off the name of a dead actor without paying a nickel of royalties. Twenty years from now how would you feel if there was a book out there called Harry Knowles presents with all kinds of shit in it you never approved of.

Do you know some inside info about the lagalities of Vincent Price Presents that I don't or once again are you just talking out of your ass? As far as I know, Bluewater has contact with the Vincent Price estate and the comics I have read from them (and have written from them) honor the late great Mr. Price. I know my two contributions to the book (THE TINGLERS and WITCHFINDER GENERAL) were done with a genuine respect for the actor's fine performances. And many of the original concepts in the comic are pretty fun takes on the old EC horror type stories. Have you even picked one of the books up or are you just being an internet cliche and judging a book without even looking past the cover?

...that I forgot I was waiting for it! Not like that's anything new with this book. But still, 'bout damn time! <P>Since I own pretty everything Shannon Wheeler has sold in his entire career, I'll be happy to give him some more cash for "I Thought You'd Be Funnier". But really... I just want more Too Much Coffee Man, man.<P>EAI isn't my favorite Aspen book, but it's cool that they're getting ANY books out on ANY kind of a schedule that resembles regular (even if it's just one book a every month or so). I hope they can keep all their titles moving forward for a couple years. I doubt it will happen, but it would make the fans of their titles far more willing to pay for their books when they hit the shelves.

So, you don't actually KNOW that Bluewater has an arrangement with Price's Estate? OK, so I may be blowing internet smoke from my ass but I'm not the guy running the website. I would think that if there was some agreement with price's estate you'd find some evidence posted in the comic. It also seems to me you can write the best stories in the world and still be trading off Price's name unfairly. I know that Price sold Picasso's through Sears but at least he was getting paid.
June 14, 2010, 2:19 p.m. CST
I need to remind myself of that more often.
June 14, 2010, 2:27 p.m. CST
Soo...your answer to Bug's question is; "Yes, I have no proof either way and know nothing for sure, so I'm going to turn the question around on you and remain an internet troll assbag" ?
June 14, 2010, 2:40 p.m. CST
What the . is that . commercial?
June 14, 2010, 3:32 p.m. CST
Bug is the reporter. He's the one who's supposed to have a source of information. If I'm a troll then you're a double troll for sticking your two cents in uninvited.

Bootskin, it seems Cookylamoo believes that a message addressed to Ambushbug on a public forum where others could see it is still a private message. I can respect his unique culture and I assume he will respect that this message is not meant for him and so he therefore has no right to respond to it in any way, shape, or form. Anyway, Cookylamoo seems to think that since there is no evidence provided that there is a contract between Bluewater and the estate of Vincent Price, that he can safely assume there is no contract. I understand this position. There was no evidence presented to show that Cookylamoo is not a _____. Due to the lack of evidence I am going to assume he is a _____. The Bluewater website states that they are working with the estate. That makes sense, since if they don't clear all the related intellectual property rights, they get sued. So whether Bluewater handled the legalities or not, the estate can take care of itself through the courts. The great cycle of law continues.... And yes, I am an attorney.

I can't even spell cock blocked correctly today. It's just become sad at this point. ... I think I need more coffee... yes, definitely. More coffee.

that Darkwing Duck is more of a Daffy Duck type character than a Donald Duck type character.

And they say children no longer read comic books.
June 14, 2010, 9:47 p.m. CST
Listen big guy. You're the one who claimed Bluewater was using ol' Vinces likeness and trading on his popularity without permission. You never ASKED Bug to confirm this, so his being a "reporter" as you call it (that was cute by the way) has nothing to do with your post. And I will post whatever the fuck I want on a public forum, as long as the owners of said forum have no issue with what I say. Until then, kindly keep your vagina shut. Or don't, as I said...public forum.

It's still just a little dishonest to say that a dead man is presenting your comic unless are consulting him through a medium. As for you bootskin..bite my foreskin.

The difference between those two previews is the difference between chicken salad and chicken shit. I saw a few copies of the Snow White shit gathering dust at a book store and took a look. *shudder* So tell me, how many people are going to look at that Spamela character and think it's Miss Piggy? And how many people are going to wonder why, since they look virtually alike, why Spamela is considered beautiful and Piggy is ugly? And didn't Piggy own the beautiful pig schtick anyway? Before Jim Henson died and the Muppets turned to crap? Anyway, on to a more pleasant subject. Good to see Darkwing back - that was a funny show and he's an excellent character worthy of a comeback, even if it's just in comic form. I like the art a lot and the dialogue is crisp and funny. Great character comedy. I don't buy many comics, but I'll look for that one.

For Blood T Cat I'll borrow the quote; "I publicly apologize for messing up your game." Though, to be honest, I don't remember ever being a cock blocker. And Jaka, I've been doing a bunch new Too Much Coffee Man stories. I should be putting them in a collection soon. -Shannon

I can't decide if that is awesome, or terrible. So I'm going with awesomely terrible. Wouldn't say terribly awesome though.

That's okay. Sorry I called you a bitch. But it did make the talkback more entertaining. And it was a running joke for years with a friend of mine.

So just out of curiosity, does anyone know why this character can retain his moniker in the Image-published SAVAGE DRAGON, but his name needed to be changed to the "Death-Defying Devil" for Alex Ross' horrible PROJECT SUPERPOWERS series for Dynamite? Does Erik Larsen have a no-sue arrangement with Marvel, or something?
June 15, 2010, 7:51 p.m. CST
...the history of talkbacks and Shannon Wheeler still responded. Rawk! After my recent interaction with Mr. David I'm going to take it on faith that it's really him/you and just say, thanks! Looking forward to it!

Did that Darkwing comic just make a Chip Dipson/Dip Dobson reference? Consider my world blown.
