You Needa

It’s the end of the another week. We made it! Tucker Stone and co. want to sing you into the weekend.

Elsewhere:

Tucker and fellow TCJ galley workers Joe McCulloch, Matt Seneca and Chris Mautner talk about comics even MORE with their voices! I have yet to listen to this installment (I like to wait until I have a long car ride or need to pass the time while I’m trying to read comics) but apparently it covers my favorite mini comics in a while, End of the Fucking World. That’s a fine comic. I like Forsman’s lean and elegant style, and reading it in little chunks has been satisfying. It’s not easy making the couple-on-the-run plot interesting, but Forsman omits a lot, which lets readers fill in the gaps and engage with the implied ambiguities. Annnyyyhooo…

Elsewhere, I have some Dapper Dan Super Movie news! This is a trailer for a Metal Hurlant series that never happened. I know one man in Brooklyn who shed a little tear when he saw this. And, yes! A Wonder Woman series. I want to be able to turn on my TV and only see superheroes. Then we will gradually turn this site into an episode recap orgy. Elsewhere in the mountaintops of entertainment, here are some “poorly translated” James Bond comics. Fine likeness, though.

Finally: I love Tomi Ungerer’s work. What a genius. Here’s a profile. This weekend he’ll be in Toronto at Little Island Comics.

    I’m confused — it seems to be happening.
    Looks like utter rubbish though, if the trailer’s anything to go by.
    Perhaps, if we all shed enough tears, we could wash it away.
