Hey folks, Harry here... That cartoon above is an old TERRYTOON cartoon with Gandy Goose & SourPuss called COMIC BOOK LAND - and my Dad's owned this cartoon on 16mm for an AGE or two - and the exclamation that, "COMIC BOOKS! THEY'RE AS GOOD AS GOLD!" became a family slogan. From our days of setting up at conventions and traveling the country.
When you see an announcement about HARBINGER being developed into a movie from the VALIANT property that Jim Shooter and artist David Lapham sandwiched together... well, it made me think... "COMIC BOOKS! THEY'RE AS GOOD AS GOLD!" - Or are they? If they adapt it right, it could be awfully cool. The HARBINGER books are about a group of terribly powerful psychics that are here for all manners of adventures. SONY has a 5 film deal with VALIANT and HARBINGER kicks it off, before a BLOODSHOT film gets made - and they're introducing the other titles - having them all do a sequel to their first film before coming together in a VALIANT AVENGERS thing called HARBINGER WARS... which makes me think of HARDWARE WARS - and then the giggles come.
It's SCANNERS on steroids - and with Neal Moritz producing - expect it to be paced like Barry Allen. I just want a TUROK: SON OF STONE film. Please.
Keep it cool,
