Op/Ed: An Open Letter to Joe Johnston

At the end of last year, one of the things that I mentioned to be excited about 2010 for was the announcement of who was going to be playing Captain America in the Marvel films. Well, the time for that announcement is drawing near and as Ain't It Cool News reports, along with several other sites, it looks like the short list for actors to don the blue chainmail has been released. Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl), John Krasinski (The Office), Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights), Mike Vogel (Out of My League), Michael Cassidy (Smallville), Patrick Flueger (The 4400), and Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy) have all been invited to come in and do a screen test to be Cap, and Jansen Ackles (Supernatural) was invited to come in but couldn't due to schedule conflicts. What's my take on this bit of news? Hit the jump for my reactions.


All-Time Awesome Lines From Comics - The Boys #15

We're back with another installment, this time with one of my favorite current running series, The Boys. I reviewed the first two trades, and I've now caught up to the series by reading the other trades that have been released, but I can't say enough how good Garth Ennis is on this series. He's always been one of my favorite writers of comic books, with classic series like Hitman, his run on the Punisher, and of course Preacher. Hit the jump for the ATALFC.


Links You Should Know - 2/23

Yo yo. I know I've said this before, and I'll say it again, but I have been pretty swamped in my personal life and I feel bad for not being able to post as much content for you guys. Right now, this blog is just me and Peter, but worry not because plans are currently in motion to expand our stable and make this site even bigger and better. Until then, I'm going to try and work in a whole bunch of awesome posts this week, and then stuff should mellow out for me soon so I can crank even more goodness out to you. For today's edition of LYSK, I thought I'd share what's becoming another of my favorite comic book blogs, Ryan K. Lindsay's Stink Brown. Ryan just started writing on the Weekly Crisis and has busted out two pretty cool features on there already in addition to the other articles he's written. Give his blog a look through, it's a pretty sweet and intellectual look at comics.


The Main Event... Fatigue - 2/21

Okay, so I totally dropped the ball this week. I was pretty busy at work, and I went to a screening of Shutter Island (which was great) and saw all of the Oscar nominated short films (live-action and animated) so I was busy socially as well. But, I'm sure that things are going to mellow out so I'm going to churn out some new articles for you guys to enjoy. Today's edition of the Main Event...Fatigue is going to focus on tonights Elimination Chamber PPV. Hit the jump.
