Okay. So full disclosure: I’m not much of a Deadpool fan. I’m also not a huge video game guy. But, I have it on very good authority that the upcoming Activision Deadpool game looks pretty good.
And by good authority, I mean the kids that work for me. Those kids and their newfangled M-Boxes and PlaySituations! Whatever happend to Frogger? or Dig-Dug? Now there was a game! One man, saving the world from underground monsters, with a pump.
But seriosuly, the Deadpool game does look pretty fun. I may even give it a spin on the ol’ N64.
They still make games for that, right?
Today’s page came to us after Mike Collins used the Konami code:
Mike Collins has been creating comics for over 25 years, working for Marvel, DC, 2000AD and a whole host of other publishers. In that time he’s written or drawn pretty much all the major characters for each company- Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Flash, Teen Titans, X-Men, Captain Britain, Judge Dredd, Darkstars, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt and more. He recently garnered an unlikely amount of publicity for drawing a comic based on the Royal Wedding, which -through a bizarre series of events- led him to cover the actual proceedings as a reporter for Dutch TV. No, really. Best known as an artist on the UK Doctor Who comic strip, he also storyboards for TV and films, including the recent Warhammer 40K film, and Horrid Henry. He also draws a series of noirish crime fiction graphic novels “Varg Veum” in Norse. He is World Famous in Norway. He lives in Cardiff, Wales and his studio is a short walk away from The Rift. He has a wife, three daughters, two cats and is an enthusiastic yet inept dancer. Mike is also the artist on the upcoming Doctor Who graphic novel from BBC Books, The Dalek Project. Daleks, on pretty much every one of it’s 128 pages. Lots of them. In lots of panels. Daleks. Everywhere. Did I mention it has Daleks?
Before I go, I’d like to draw your attention to the little area under the page that says “Submissions.” It is one of our great pleasures to utilize the talents of the best and brightest for these pages and if you’re an artist looking for some professional exposure we’d love to hear from you.
In the meantime, don’t let the week get the best of you and we’ll see you back here Friday!
