INFOWARS: Moneybomb!

Filed under: Other — M Kitchen @ 12:00 am

If you’ve never heard of Alex Jones, you should really check this out: He’s an investigative journalist and film maker based in Austin Texas, who is the modern day Paul Revere warning us against the globalist movement to enslave the population under a World Government. I’ve posted some of his documentary films in previous blog posts, and they’re well worth a watch.

I first encountered Alex Jones’ work while researching material for SPY GUY:Minis, where he directly influenced this comic strip and got me to research the Northwoods Document.

Today Eric Nordstrom has orchestrated a Ron Paul style MONEYBOMB to help fund the INFOWARS network. Every dollar donated is an arrow to be fired directly into the heart of the New World Order.

As I posted before, it seems to me that if all of us employed what little wealth and power we have towards shaping the world to embrace true freedom and liberty, then together we could make great strides in creating better life for all humanity.

I’ve contributed my arrows. Have you?

100 Variant Covers – UPDATE

Filed under: Other — M Kitchen @ 11:58 pm

3 posts back the Ultraist Blog Journal broke the story on the Ultimate Spider-Man 100 variant covers.

Now we bring you this exclusive scoop!

What? You thought you could get through the week without the mention of Dave Sim? Foolish blog reader.

In his latest press release, Dave Sim is quoted as saying:

“…to mark just so extraordinary achievement struck me as calling for a completely unprecedented contribution from the Pariah King of Comics: Dave Sim doing his first ever Spider-Ham cover!

[For those not aware of the history, way back when the earth was still cooling and I had done my three consecutive Wolverroach covers on Cerebus 54, 55 and 56—thereby sincerely pushing the boundary between misappropriation of a trademarked character and legitimate parody—I suspect that Marvel decided to fire a warning shot across my bow by coming up with a funny animal version of Spider-man that was basically Cerebus in a Spider-man costume. I don’t know whose idea it was (Jim Shooter his own self?) but I have to say that I always admired the thinking behind it. It was a very measured response along the lines of “See? How do YOU like it?” while also a creative one and, ultimately, a profitable one! According to my Overstreet Guide, Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham ran for seventeen issues from May 1985 to September 1987 as part of Marvel’s Star Comics children’s line. Not a bad run for the mid-80s]

Anyway, I always thought it would be interesting if an opportunity arose where I could draw Spider-Ham (just for the experience if nothing else) and this benefit project seemed like the moment I had been waiting for.”

Stay tuned for the coloured final.

100 Variant Covers

Filed under: Other — M Kitchen @ 4:01 pm

Variant Covers are back with a vengeance.

The Hero Initiative, and Marvel Comics have teamed up with 80 of the industry’s “top talent” to create 100 one-of-a-kind variant covers for Ultimate Spider-Man #100.

CBR states: Proceeds from the auctions will benefit the Hero Initiative’s efforts to “provide a financial safety net for yesterdays creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life and an avenue back into paying work.”

Among the artist participating are Jae Lee, John Romita, Sergio Aragones, Matt Wagner, Neil Gaiman, Frank Cho, and Todd McFarlane (plus many more).
