Quantcast

Tampa Comic Con, Ultimate Venom, CGC magazines and Tim Burton on ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’

ONE SHOTS

Venom versus Spider-Man marvel comics coverCOMIC AND TOY CONVENTION: SUNDAY, JUNE 8 – DOUBLETREE HOTEL 4500 Cypress Street. (1-888-370-6108 for directions). Scheduled to attend: Ethan Van Sciver (Batman, Hawkman, X-Men), Mart Nodell (creator of Golden Age Green Lantern), Alex Saviuk (Spidey artist), Arne Starr (artist and reviewer), Mark & Stephanie Heike (AC Comics), Tom Alvarez (Sherlock Holmes comic strip), D. Squire Wells (Scooterman comics), Ben Rose (Invisible War), and B-movie scream queen/Vampirella Leslie Culton and stars from IPW Wrestling. For more go to: http://www.comicbookconventions.com/tampaconvention/or contact Tim Gordon 727-522-9032, or email: [email protected].

Venom is back: Ultimate Spider-Man 33 resurrected the evil symbiote and is a headliner in the Marvel scene these days with a regular series coming soon. From the first appearance in Amazing Spiderman 300 to the one panel in DC vs. Marvel #1, Venom is on the comeback and in a big way.

Get your magazines out of their paperbags: The CGC has expanded their grading process to include comic magazines. Mad, Sword of Conon, Vampirella, Cerebus and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will join the intense world of professional grading. The grades will be the same and the CGC definitely intends to move on to commercial magazines such as National Geographic and Sports Illustrated.

Hulk mania (con’t): ABC Family will showcase a special June 21st showing of Hulk cartoons. “Spideymania” has filled the airways broadcasting classic episodes from the 60’s to today. From the famous catchy theme song to a team-up with Iceman and Firestar to the long running 90’s series – they are showing it all. I can’t wait to catch up with Stan Lee’s classic Hulk episodes.

Tim Burton to direct “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”: While I am conflicted with the notion of a sequel to the classic “Willy Wonka”, adding Burton renews my interest. His melancholy and conflicted tones will be great applied to this picture (comparable to “Beetlejuice” and “Nightmare Before Christmas”)

Unfortunately, I expect Burton to show me a “vermicious knid” and make the Oompa Loompas creepier than they already are.
