Resistance 2 Graphic Novel

Posted in Nifty Stuff with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2008 by B33

WildStorm (a branch of DC Comics)  will be unleashing  a 6 part graphic novel series which will utilize the universe of Resistance  and it’s primary protagonist named Nathan Hale. Mike Costa touts the writer credit, while Ramón Pérez will be at helm of the art. The issues are expected to cover the various events leading up to the beginning of the second title and serve as a direct tie-in to the game’s plotline.   The official synopsis follows below.

The best-selling Sony PlayStation 3 game comes to comics! Nathan Hale leads a desperate fight against the extraterrestrial Chimera as the invasion of America begins! Coinciding with the release of the highly-anticipated second game in the Resistance franchise, the miniseries, from writer Mike Costa (SECRET HISTORY OF THE AUTHORITY: HAWKSMOOR) is integral to the game story and helps further define this complex universe!

Issue one will hit stores on January 7, 2009 and issue two will be released on January 28, 2009, while the third issue is scheduled to be released on February 25, 2009. The release dates for issues four, five, and six have yet to be announced; at this time. Each installment is expected to run around 32 pages and will retail for $3.99. Fans might also recall that a digital copy of issue zero was placed within the “Collector’s Edition” of Resistance 2 as an extra. Overall, I’m intrigued and look forward to giving the series a shot, as I’ve enjoyed the amount of detail and effort put into the story of each game, respectively.

Lately, I’ve been hooked on to sifting through the archives of Anthony Clark’s picture diary known simply as “Nedroid.” Various sketches, full blown pieces of art, comics, and other various elements are scattered thoughout the numerous pages. The art style present is unique and intriguing, while the humor present is subtle yet rather clever, as well. There’s no precise schedule the founder operates under since it’s essentially a leisurely crafted journal. The primary focus is upon “Beartato” and “Reginald” (a bear and bird) in various sketches, comics, and what not. There are also various other characters and things present (such as robots and dinosaurs) in a subliminally engaging style.  Overall, it’s definitely worth browsing through to provide a decent amount of entertainment, if you happen to have some time to spare.

Above is the introduction that was inserted before the main attraction within Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters in both the DVD edition and theatrical release. I found it to be rather humorous. Perhaps theaters should start inserting this before each and every movie, rather than the alternative which is often disregarded.

The Dark Knight Trailer Spoof

Fairly humorous and well crafted spoof that runs in a similar vein of Be Kind Rewind and the “sweded” renditions featured within the actual film. A good watch for those who have seen the trailer and have been following the coverage on The Dark Knight thus far.

The above video is a short segment directed by Kevin Smith and premiered on The Tonight Show on February 27th, 2002. It was also included on the Clerks 10th Anniversary DVD. The segment stars View Askewniverse regulars Dante Hicks (Bryan O’Halloran) and Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) as they manage to cram pop-culture and philosophy in a odd discussion while in the midst of a daily traffic jam. It’s a good laugh for View Askew fans and casual fans as well.
