I just can't believe it. Good old Joe Kubert has passed away at the age of 85. There is so much to say but all I can muster is that he truly was one of the greats. He will be deeply missed. I loved just about everything he did. Go Easy Joe, Go Easy…

Ernie was such a fantastic creator; I really love his body of work and his artistic style. I have many of the Dark Horse trades with his Conan stories, plus other collections and individual issues like Red Sonja, Claw, Power Man etc. He is one of my top five favorite artists so this really hurts.
I had the good fortune of meeting Ernie in 2008 and had him sign a few of my Conan comic trades. It is a great legacy he leaves us with but sadly it is a legacy that now has an end point. Paalam -Swinebread

I'm outing myself here but yes I was in the Army way back when.
As you can tell from the photo I was still a gen-x geek even while in uniform as attested by such things as:
The spike Gremlin in front of the pentium computer.
The empty bag of chips on the floor
A copy of PC Gamer on the Chair
Hellraiser Puzzle box on the coffee table
and the Call of Cthulhu RPG books on the shelf

In all of the SDCC news dump this small tidbit jumped out for me. It's been announced that Strikeforce: Morituri is being delvoped into a Movie.
SFM would actually work quite well as film since all of the characters would be under a death sentence. They tried to get a TV version of of this in 2003 so I'm not holding my breath though.

From Comic book Movie:
Rotten Tomatoes is indeed owned by Warner Brothers, the company behind the recently released Harry Potter movie. As the reviews roll in it would seem that the RT score is being manipulated to be presented as low score and in fact rotten. As I write this the score stands at 58% with a 7/10 rating, 14 positive reviews and 10 negative. Wow? 7/10 still, and it sits at a 58% rating? A little odd I might say. I've been scanning the web all day and I know for a fact there are way more than 14 positive reviews from major critics out there, and maybe there are more than 10 negative reviews from major critics but I don't see them. In fact every negative review that I see on the web is updated on RT, but there are still tons of positive reviews yet to be released. I also find it odd that of those 10 negative reviews 3 of them don't actually seem negative and they all have a score over 60%, is RT actually reading these things?
I don't think it's a stretch to think that RT is sitting on a ton of great reviews until the very last minute, or at least as long as they can. It's almost like they're deliberately waiting for a negative review to come in until they put up another positive one, perhaps to keep that score down as long as possible? I don't think it's a coincidence that of the first 8 reviews posted 6 of them were negative. Where have we gone since then? Positive has gone up by 12 and negative only by 4. Huh? maybe I'm just a conspiracy theorist but that does seem a little odd.
It is the day before the movie opens and there is no consensus on RT yet... TOTAL BS
