Is your sweetie a LOST fan? Consider passing them a LOST-themed Valentine from artist Lee Bretschneider.
Also, if you dig these, you may also dig one of the artist’s other clever prints. They may be viewed, and purchased, here at his Adventuring Company store. Plus, all proceeds garnered from now until February 28th will be donated to the American Red Cross towards Haitian relief efforts.
The full collection of LOST Valentines may be seen here. And no, I am not nearly as much of a VDay humbug as the title would suggest.
The final season of LOST kicks off tonight, and though I am a fan I will not be watching as I’ll be managing FPNYC, hawking wares, getting ready for a big Wednesday, and generally covering for other Lostie employees. Who’s a sweet fella? This guy. There will, however, be a screening of tonight’s episode @ Casa de Ayers soon thereafter.
For those of you who will be watching I offer this bit of perspective from the Onion News Network…
So enjoy, friends. But please, spare the rest of humanity. No public postulating or theorizing (s’funny how LOST discussions in social settings have become bigger conversation faux pas than religion and politics in some circles), and NO SPOILING.
Friday night, the creators of hit TV show “Lost” said during a talk at the Curzon Cinema that there is going to be no chance of a spinoff comic after the series ends next season.
Q: My question is about the fate of Lost, because I know it ends with season 6, but do you think because of Bryan Fuller with Pushing Daisies continuing it in a comic book, and I love Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk (Damon’s comic) and with Lost it has a disjointed timeline and it comes together in the end, do you think that you’ll do any spin offs in a comic book form?
LINDELOF: We feel that if we hold anything back for the final season of the show, it will be bad. People have come along this far, and they need a conclusion.
Nice to hear. In terms of comics, one of the show’s more popular writers, Eisner award winning writer for “Ex Machina” Brian K. Vaughan has left the show. Lindelof confirmed:
Q: What’s Brian K. Vaughan like?
DL: Unfortunately he has left for greener pastures. When he first came on the show Jorge Garcia was ecstatic because he’s a huge fan of his work.
That’s too bad, considering the only thing that kept me watching the show was him on the writing staff. I guess I finally have a reason to jump ship. Though, I can’t help but speculate that this means more comics, and from Vaughan, that can only mean good things. There has been a pit in my stomach since Y: The Last Man’s final issue came out.
