"Then Paul answered, "What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus." (Acts 21:13, ESV)
I was lacking an updated journal. In case some of you don't know, I'm now moved into my new apartment with my sister, ~Silym
(have been for about a month now). Although it was uncertain whether or not we were going to have Internet, it was a couple of weeks ago that I decided to hook up my router to see if there were any open networks --- and la-te-da! Full bars to the network titled "cheebah". Thank you, Cheebah. Whoever you are. <3
How come I never get to go to Comic Con International? D; It's located in my hometown, I have esteemed relatives supporting the convention so they could get me in for free, and it's full of utter BEAUTY.
Okay, I just started looking up stuff about my great uncle. Holy cow! Gene Henderson won the Inkpot Award in 1977. People like Steve Ditko, Bob Kane, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steven Spielberg have also won this award, mind you. The Wikipedia article also says he is "San Diego Comic-Con's Historian & Director-at-Large". Aaaaaaaah, I didn't know he was so amazing! WHY HAVE I NEVER ASKED HIM FOR TICKETS? I'm such a freakin' LOSER. *Cries in a corner, wallowing in loserdom.* If I don't ask him for tickets next year, I'm a moron.
Okay, okay, time to compose myself. I'll talk about Comic-Con stuff now, although I'm sure I don't know about everything yet. I'll just break the news about stuff I stumbled upon currently.
Firstly, more information has been given about "Young Justice", a new tv show that's going to air this fall. Comic-Con gave us a lovely sneak peek, which you all can watch here: [link]
. You remember X-Men: Evolution, yeah? Well, this DC creation has some similarities (read the wiki article here: [link]
, though it's based (loosely) off of the comic book series of the same name. Instead of the Justice League, the show will be starring their teenage protegees: Aqualad, Miss Martian, Robin, Kid Flash, Superboy, and Artemis. Fortunately, unlike X-Men: Evolution and Teen titans, this show is radiating a more serious air to it. There will be violence, there will be hormones, and there will be death. (The death part I'm a bit freaked out about. My favorite characters better not die like they ALWAYS do!) Something they definitely got right was giving the Justice Leaguers a big role in the series, because as much as I'm probably going to like Superboy, Kid Flash, and Robin, they have nothing on the likes of Superman, Flash, and Batman as far as my admiration for the characters goes. I am officially stoked for this, guys. I'm betting this series is going to impact the public much like how Evolution did - getting more young people (like you!) interested in the DC Universe.
Another big plus is the animation style. Any of you who've seen Crisis on Two Earths may recognize the art in the Young Justice poster. That's because they're from the same artist, and that's a crazy-cool thing considering how amazing Crisis on Two Earths looked! Man, this series is looking too good to be true. What's even better is that I watch the epic artist here on deviantART. Check out *philbourassa
and become a fan today. ;D He's currently not allowed to share anything concerning Young Justice, but there's plenty of other stuff to look at in his gallery, including Crisis on Two Earths and Planet Hulk designs.
Moving on to Silent Hill 8. Yep, it's coming, and it's looking prettay. Comic-Con video here: [link]
. You are Murphy Pendleton, an escaped prisoner running amok in the creepy demon town we all know and have nightmares about. There isn't much about the game just yet, but I have heard rumors that they'll be reverting back to the gameplay similar to Silent Hill 2. I HOPE that's true, because I did not like Homecoming and its difficult monsters. I miss when I could run in circles around them and leave the room without having to kill the suckers, then get all nervous when I would deviate back to that area because they would set off my radio. I believe Silent Hill should always give you the option not to fight, because it's all about the atmosphere - not the combat.
Let's see... oh yeah! Well, this isn't Comic-Con related, but it's stiiiilllll coooooolllll. Link to the Superman/Batman Apocalypse trailer: [link]
, though this isn't really brand new
news. I'm sure the people who are into this stuff already know about this. Heheh. Nevertheless, I can't wait until it comes out! Sil and I already have Superman/Batman Public Enemies in DVD and we watch it like once a week. xD It's nice to love Superman and live with someone who loves Batman, because those two characters being in a tag-team is always boss, and they have a lot of media to show for it. <3 [link]
- Exclusive clip from Superman/Batman Apocalypse, by the way.
Oh no, Smallville Season 10 is approaching: [link]
, and got a spot at the Comic-Con this year. COME ON, BRUCE WAYNE. GET YOUR GOTHY BUTT IN THE SERIES ALREADY.
Okay, I think I'm done. Geek with meeeeee. xD
