Another interview for my upcoming comic book series, Dark Matter, that hits the shelves January 11th – this one with Eric Whitman at The Daily BLAM! http://www.dailyblam.com/news/2011/12/30/preview-exclusive-interview-joseph-mallozzi-discusses-his-comic-debut-dark-matter
Wow! This Supermovie of the Week Club has really sparked a lot of interest. More, dare I say, than my Book of the Month Club ever garnered. It would appear as though many of you would rather watch a movie than read a book. Who’d have thunk? Well, here’s the deal. We’re going to do both!
For those of you who missed yesterday’s blog entry (No, I don’t want to hear your excuses), I’ll be kicking off a “Supermovie” of the Week Club starting next Monday. The goal is to watch every superhero-themed movie out there, starting from the 1951 Superman and the Mole Men to, well, whatever the latest movie to hit the big screen will be by the time we’re done (Brother Voodoo? Aqualad?), then gather and discuss with this blog’s resident film critic, Cookie Monster. Festivities will commence this Monday (January 9th) with – what did I say? – the 1951 Superman and the Mole Men, available on Netflix…and I hear elsewhere on the net.
The following Tuesday (January 16th), we’ll gather to chat about the second film in our intellectual little discussion group: the 1966 Batman movie which certainly beats any live action Batman movie produced prior to 2005. We’ll push our little movie group by one day because that Monday, in keeping with the Bat-theme, we have a BIG Book of the Month Club discussion on Batgirl: Batgirl Rising. It’s a trade paperback, a quick though no-less involving read, and should be available at your local comic bookstore. I’d like you all to take the time to read it and come up with some questions for writer Bryan Q. Miller who is a good friend – once removed (he’s married to my good friend Erika Kennair) – and a former writer/executive story editor on the television series Smallville.
Homeward-bound today. Hopefully yet another change in environment will give Maximus a much-needed boost.
