#TwoFace humor!

Two-face! Stop taking yourself so serious. 

@CaptainCanuck to Celebrate Canada Day with New Edition!

A patriotic superhero with ties to Calgary will be the focus of a new Canada Day edition.
Given that Captain Canuck has been fighting for truth, justice and the Canadian way for nearly 40 years, it may seem strange that he has yet to star in a “Canada Day” edition. But creator and former Calgarian Richard Comely used the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo on Saturday to announce the first of what he hopes will become an annual tradition.
The Captain Canuck Canada Day Edition will be released June 28 and feature two adventures, a listing of cultural events across Canada and a list of comic-book stores and conventions.
Best of all, it will be made available for free through public libraries and comic book stores across the nation, beginning June 28.
Captain Canuck was born in Winnipeg, the brainchild of Comely and friend Ron Leishman who had met at a Mormon church. Four issues were published in 1975 before the character was reborn (in the first of many reincarnations) in Calgary in 1979.
Those early issues were illustrated by George Freeman and Raymond, Alberta’s Claude St. Aubin, who are both involved in the new edition. It’s the first time in 33 years that Comley, Freeman and St. Aubin have collaborated.

The following beer bottle designs were created by illustrator Marcelo Rizzetto of Orlando, Florida and while the images themselves were created in Photoshop as opposed to being being actual photos of actual physical products, we can’t get over how badly we’d love to stock such beautiful-looking beverages.

David Llyod at @CalgaryExpo

At this years +Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (Calgary Expo) I had the opportunity to meet David Lloyd. Famed artist from V for Vendetta.  He was humblly asking for a "fee" for his autograph. A dollar donation to the Comic Legends Legal Defense Fund. What a worth while cause and a good man.

Billy Boyd at @CalgaryExpo @OfficialBeecake

Billy Boyd, of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, was a delight. He was very giving to the fans. WETA was also at +Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (Calgary Expo) with an EXCELLENT display.

#JohnHiggins at the @CalgaryExpo!

Had the opportunity to speak to JOHN HIGGINS from Watchmen and The Killing Joke fame! I just walked up to the table, so because of that we had the time to chat. he did this great sketch of The Comedian. He had mentioned that it was kind of slow for him (the kids this days! Gesh!!) While he was finishing the sketched we noticed that there was about a dozen people suddenly lined up behind me. John thanked me for "starting his queue", gave me a hardy hand shake, and thanked me for stopping by. Great guy!!

 They have plans for a comic book series, animated shows, and the second draft of the feature film script is done!

Can #Wolverine get some love??

 Wolverine is from Alberta, so why don't we embrace him like our own hairy son?

When pop-culture figures reach a certain level of success, many of them receive a little pomp and circumstance. Superman’s city of Metropolis is fictional, but that didn’t stop the good people of Metropolis, Ill. from erecting a five-metre-tall statue in his honour. Philadelphia has a statue of Rocky Balboa. And when the City of Detroit wouldn’t pony up for a full-size bronze of RoboCop, a group of concerned citizens decided to crowdfund the project.
It even happens here in Alberta. In the 1990s, the town of Vulcan famously leveraged its nominal (and, frankly, completely tenuous) connection to Star Trek and built a replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise near the entrance to town.
But it’s not like this province is lacking for homegrown characters who’ve actually made an impact on pop culture. On the contrary: one of the most popular superheroes ever is a proud Albertan who wears his nationality proudly on his sleeve—often literally, as his civilian outfit of choice involves a solid foundation of red flannel.

word B-Man

Zack Snyder: "Why Batman is in the Superman Sequel"

"I gotta be honest, [being able to reboot Batman on film] definitely was a thing that… after MAN OF STEEL finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, 'Maybe Batman?' Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne’s house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that’s the first time we see him. But then, once you say it out loud, right? You’re in a story meeting talking about, like, who should [Superman] fight if he fought this giant alien threat Zod who was basically his equal physically, from his planet, fighting on our turf...You know, who to fight next? The problem is, once you say it out loud, then it’s kind of hard to go back, right? Once you say, 'What about Batman?' then you realize, 'Okay, that’s a cool idea. What else?' I mean, what do you say after that? But I’m not gonna say at all that when I took the job to do MAN OF STEEL that I did it in a subversive way to get to Batman. I really believe that only after contemplating who could face [Superman] did Batman come into the picture."

The Usual Suspects via #Gotham

Here's a fantastically fun series of mugshots of Batman villains that were inspired by 1920s era criminal mugshots -- though the photos are dated in the '40s and '50s. They were created by Canadian artist Jason Mark, and he calls the series "The Usual Suspects."

#DarkKnight Frank Miller's #Batman

Christian Ronchi's version of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight looks like a creepy vampire Batman. This version of the classic superhero is pretty terrifying, and he'd definitely scare the shit out of the criminals of Gotham.

The Evolution of #Superheroes

#CaptainCanuck vs. #CaptainAmerica

Look at some of Canada's most fearless heroes and break down their chances against the first Avenger
Captain Canuck
The hero of a self-titled indie comic launched in the mid-70s, Captain Canuck was originally imagined as a secret agent who gained powers after coming in contact with aliens, and patrolled the futuristic Canada of the 1990s, where our nation was the most powerful on Earth. Seems plausible.
Could he beat Captain America?
This hoser? Fat chance.
