See ya in the funny pitchers
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under eventsclassics 27 Feb 2008 11:59 AM

  

The Northwest Film Forum, Seattle's non-profit cinematheque with two screens located on Capitol Hill, along with a little help from their friends at Fantagraphics Books, is presenting a trio of film adaptations of classic comic strips. These family-friendly versions of DICK TRACY, ANNIE, and POPEYE are sure to win the hearts of new young viewers. These films will be a treat for parents too; they revisit the peculiar results of the unlikely directoral assignments for John Houston, (ANNIE), Robert Altman (POPEYE) and Warren Beatty (DICK TRACY).

Also, all attendees of the series will receive a 20% off coupon to the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, where you can purchase collections of the original strips these films were based on!

POPEYE: MARCH 1 - 2, Saturday-Sunday at 1:30, 4pm

(Robert Altman, USA, 1980, 35mm, 113 min)

ANNIE: APRIL 5 - 6, Saturday-Sunday at 1:30, 4pm

SING-A-LONG WITH THE MOVIE SUNDAY AT 4PM! Sheet music will be given out!

(John Huston, USA, 1982, 35mm, 127 min)

DICK TRACY: MAY 3 - 4, Saturday and Sunday at 2, 4pm

(Warren Beatty, 1990, 35mm, 105 min)

 

All screenings will be held at: 

Northwest Film Forum

Greatest anecdote ever?
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under comics industry 26 Feb 2008 9:19 AM

"I was at Bob Kane's funeral," Mark Evanier said. "There were only four people from comics there: me, Stan LeeMike Barr and Paul Smith. A whole bunch of Batman toys were put into Kane's coffin and they were lowering it down. As Kane was being put into the ground, Stan turned around to me and said ‘Steve Ditko was the best inker Jack Kirby ever had.'"

This anecdote is so sad and poignant on so many different levels, it just breaks my heart. I don't think I've ever felt more empathy for Stan Lee. Link via Ian Brill, bless him.

From the archives: Peter Bagge Hate Q&A circa 1997
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Peter Baggemeta 25 Feb 2008 4:06 PM
Round about the time he was wrapping up work on the original Hate series, Peter Bagge sat down for a Q&A which we've dug out of our musty files to present to you, archived here on our website. This is the one where Pete finally gave up the money quote: "Yes, I am Buddy Bradley!" (If you haven't yet read the second half of the Hate saga as collected in Buddy Does Jersey, be warned: the first question leads off with a big fat spoiler.)

Original Clowes Art Going Fast

I wouldn't normally recommend buying original art off Ebay rather than through the artist but, then, it's not often you get the chance to buy early Dan Clowes pages... You only have a few hours!
