Inspired by my boy Rudy's Operation B.A.L.E. (who was, in turn, inspired by Taryn O'Neill's Operation B.A.B.E.), I have entered the world of public fitness accountability. The goal is to be worthy to play King Namor, The Sub-Mariner in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

No acronyms here --Namor's too hot-headed for that -- Imperius Rex!

THIS IS A COUNTDOWN

We haven’t mentioned it up until now, but the release date for DEAD LETTERS, which was originally April 23rd, has been moved up to April 2nd. That’s three whole weeks earlier that you (and us) get to get your hands on issue 1 and see what it’s all about.

Because of that, Monday, March 10th is now what comics calls the "Final Order Cutoff" — the very last chance for retailers to up their orders on the book before it goes out to print and wings its way to stores and to you.

So if you haven’t already and you have a few minutes, call your shop and ask them to order you a copy or twelve, ask for that sweet Ronald Wimberly variant (also, we have other variants, but we’re keeping hush hush about those), let them know you want to support this book, support us as creators, ask for a subscription if you’re feeling like making a commitment.

You can print out the form above to bring to your shop, tell them the name of the book (that’s DEAD LETTERS out from Boom!) or give them the order code (that’s FEB141035). If you’re not sure where there’s a shop near you, you can find one. If you don’t have a shop near you, you can always order from a number of online comics retailers.

Thanks for all your excitement about the book, all the likes and reblogs on everything up until now. But this, this is our last weekend to really whip the horse and get it bolting over the finish line as loud and huge as possible, so any assistance you can give spreading the word, we’ll owe you a huge hug at whatever show we run into you at (we will be at Heroes. Just sayin’).

So proud of Dead Letters…please pre-order #1!

Favourite Director/Actor Collaborations: Kurosawa/Mifune

Between 1948 and 1965, Akira Kurosawa directed 17 films. Of those 17, Toshiro Mifune starred in all but one. While the two had a falling out after the filming of their last collaboration, Red Beard, their mutual respect for one another remained intact until the end. 

Kurosawa has this quality, this ability to bring things out of you that you never knew were there. It is enormously difficult work, but each picture with him is a revelation. When you see his films, you find them full realizations of ideas, of emotions, of a philosophy which surprises with its strength, even shocks with its power. You had not expected to be so moved, to find within your own self this depth of understanding.
        — Toshiro Mifune

I am a person who is rarely impressed by actors, but in the case of Mifune, I was completely overwhelmed.
        — Akira Kurosawa
