Hey folks, Harry here... Couple years back we brought in Kevin Munroe for a special screening of TMNT, the cgi Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie that was a whole lot of fun. Now, Kevin is coming back with a really cool monsters & superhero movie based upon the classic international comic character, Dylan Dog. Who came about out of the 1980's Italian comic book world, whose artists were watching great Fulci & Bava & Argento flicks and making a superhero to battle it all. This book is all kinds of cool! How cool?
The author of THE NAME OF THE ROSE, Umberto Eco said, "I can read the BIBLE, Homer or DYLAN DOG for several days without being bored." and if you've bought Dark Horse's compilations you'll agree. They've been expertly translated and are AWESOME! In interest of full disclosure, I got that quote from Wiki.
So - how is DYLAN DOG? We'll see this Thursday, April 28th at the Alamo Drafthouse South at 7:30pm with director Kevin Munroe returning to show off the flick! I so can not wait! Look at this image...
That's SUPERMAN beating up a big bad! And after this movie I hope to look at that photo and say, "That's DYLAN DOG!"
I don't know about you but I'm a fan of Brandon Routh's. I loved his gay character in ZACK & MIRI MAKE A PORNO. Loved him as SUPERMAN. And as the vegan god from SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD... I'm totally in the mood for this and I'm rooting like crazy for Kevin.
SO - how do you join us?
Send an email to HK at AintitCool.com with the exact subject line:
I want to see DYLAN DOG now!
In the body of that email put your full name and that of up to 2 friends - BUT - I also want to know the answer to the following two questions from each member of the submission... Those that don't follow that rule get discarded.
Who or What is your favorite all-time Monster?
Who is your favorite all-time Monster Slayer?
Let's load this up with people that have thought about that. ALSO - Kevin is bringing some DYLAN DOG swag for a contest we're having with this screening. There will be multiple prizes - but the best Monster Costumed folks will very likely be walking away with something that could be a prop, something autographed or actually magical. (one of those is highly unlikely)
I'm giving you till Friday Night to get the answers and names of your party together and sent to me. (Midnight Friday Night) I'll post the winners this Saturday!!!
See ya there!!!
