Legendary illustrator/comic artist Jeff Jones passed away today. How do a few scribbled lines on a page become the most beautiful woman you ever laid eyes on? When Jones is the one scribbling. You will be missed.
Dear Internet. I have been trapped under this pile of mini comics for a week now. And by the arcane compact of the Mole people, I can only remove comics from the pile upon reviewing them. SO SPEAKS THE MOLE KING. The Life & Times of Otto Zeplin vol. 4 by B.T. Livermore This is [...]
Maybe the death of TokyoPop is serving as a lesson to other publishers, but as of late, it seems as though they’re adopting a “less is more” sort of attitude. Less books, sure, but at least they’re bothering to make sure that what comes into print over here is worth reading. This week is a [...]
Yes you love comics, but do you like comics about love? Do you LIKE like them, you know, more than as a friend? Comic books are usually about punching crime in the gonads, or being a warrior mouse who lives in a medieval mouse kingdom. Some comics, however, are about real people and feelings. Difficult [...]
This Saturday night Junk Food Dinner presents Psychos In Love at the Spectacle theater in Williamsburg. I’ve mentioned my love for this movie about a zillion times by now so here’s your chance to see it. Join me won’t you, it will be wonderful way to bring in the end of the world.
Meet Onrie Kompan of Yi Soon Shin fame this Thursday at Noon, right here at Forbidden Planet!
Check out James Stokoe’s awesome Orc Staine #1 on the cheap thanks to Image this week!
By Chris Troy Alright, so it’s been a while FPNYC faithful (Stupid Internets!), but now we’re back at 100% and willing to give you, the reader, the latest news on FPNYC’s toy and collectibles department! Since we’re all living in a post-Thor world (the movie rocked by the way, for all of you who haven’t [...]
By Loran Occurring right now in Japan is the Shizuoka Hobby Show, a yearly event where many of Japan’s model kit companies get together to show off their upcoming releases for the summer and beyond. Think of it as Toyfair for model kits. I sadly have not had a chance to go myself (it would [...]
by Loran It’s almost time, dear readers. The new Transformers film, “Dark of the Moon” makes its debut in North American theaters on July 1st. But what would the movie be without the toys? Yep, those are even closer, with a street date of May 16th. Many retailers have actually broken the street dates, throwing [...]
By Loran While most of the kitbashing I do and have showcased here has been the tried-and-true practice of “MSV+HGUC,” there is of course a much simpler way, and that’s just throwing a couple of High Grades together–and no, taking an arm from one kit and throwing it onto another kit isn’t kitbashing. I did [...]
By Loran Ah, Wheeljack. How can’t you love this guy? He’s probably one of the most endearing characters from the first season of the Transformers cartoon, and he was even the first character to ever appear on-screen. He was the Autobots’ first scientist, and a scientist amongst a bunch of soldiers tends to stand out. [...]
By Loran Kitbashes, kitbashes… I have way too much fun doing these. If you think about it, if you have a backlog as big as I do, kitbashes are the best way to clear it out! It can help take out two kits at once! Of course, that doesn’t really help when said kits are [...]
By Loran You know how I said I wasn’t a big comic book fan as a kid? Weeeell, the same could sort of be said towards a lot of video games. I have a Playstation, yes, but I didn’t have nearly as many games as some of my friends did. I never had a Nintendo [...]
