My New Comics

Not much this week
This Week's cover by default is Wrath of the Titans #1.

Wrath of the Titans #1, Bluewater Productions. That’s right! This is the comic sequel to one of my childhood favorites: Clash of the Titans. See, old Ray Harryhausen never got to make the sequel he planned despite the fact that Clash of the Titans made money. But now, through comics, we get to see what the next story would have been. Check out Bluewater Productions site here.

52 Vol 1 trade paperback, DC Comics. I wanted to see what all the hype was about even though I know the big surprise at the end… Well, come to think of it, maybe that’s why I picked it up. Also, from now on, I’m gonna’ buy these big events and miniseries from the big two (Marvel and DC) in TPB form only.

That cover is perfect and matches the movie. Is the rest of the art like that?

Swinebread said...

Yes, although the characters don't look like the actors from the film. This is probably because bluewater and Harryhausen didn't the rights to their likenesses.

That's a bummer, I would have really liked to see a "Wrath of the Titans"

Ray Harryhousen sure worked on some interesting films. I kinda like the old stop-motion animation, CGI has become so over the top and unreal.

You know of course, I'm going to have to read that comic...

It LOOKS like Harry Hamlin at first glance.

Harryhousen was a god. I have to watch that Sinbad movie with a very young and hot Jane Seymour when I get a chance.

LB - the suits decided that Ray’s style wasn't good enough and that was it. No more films for him. He's still alive so he had a lot more stories to tell.

dean - the art is a little manga-like on the inside
