Farewell Fear Agent – The End of an Era

December 13, 2011

Last month Fear Agent, one of my two favourite ongoing comics of the past few years ended (the other being The Boys).

For those of you that don’t know Fear Agent is an action-sci-fi-horror-pulp-esque space epic written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Tony Moore and Jerome Opena all of whom are badass. It tells the story of Heath Huston a drunkard, alien exterminator/bounty hunter and the last of the fear agents. He’s also from Texas and the luckiest ill fated cowboy ever to exist.

It has pretty much has everything anyone could ever want in life or comics (if you’re me anyhow). Things like time travel, space pirates, gladiatoral combat, zombies, giant robots of the stompy variety, ray guns, interdimensional jaunts, cowboys and plot twists galore. It does them well and nothing seems out of place.

This is my tribute to the ending of an era and a series I enjoyed very, very much. If you have’t read it, do so!

March 17, 2011

It has been exactly one year since I had a dream in which I was tasked with giving Barack Obama a make over. My suggestion was the Cadillac Robot suit which he seemed quite enthusiastic about.

The fact that it’s taken me so long to get around to cleaning up the image and colouring is ridiculous in itself, but I think i’ve just created a saturday morning kids show.

The Future of politics is here!

Japanese Spiderman

March 8, 2010

Ok, so silly videos are a guilty pleasure of mine.

Here’s one I found a short while back and have been itching to share.

I love the little disco bada-bum bada-bum things they have in the catchy opening music that’s half the fun right there.

The other half is the great story behind why this was made and why spiderman has his own robot (as if he’d need one – pah!).

Marvel made a deal with Toei that meant for 4 years they could do whatever the sam hell they wanted to with him. Bloody genius is what it is. There need to be more giant robots on tv, it’s something that I find programmes distinctly lack these days. We live in dark times indeed.
