Casting Couch: Inhumans

By | Nov 26, 2014 | Columns

Welcome back to Casting Couch. After a short break, this week sees Marvel’s upcoming Inhumans film joining us for consideration. Perhaps based on the seminal Paul Jenkins/Jae Lee series (as it appears that the concept of Kree/Inhuman relations will be introduced long before this film debuts), we’re going to put it under our ever-critical microscope […]

After an extended break I’ve returned, and today I’m kicking off the new wave of Casting Couches with a look at Josh Williamson and Mike Henderson’s “Nailbiter,” from Image Comics.

By | Jun 25, 2014 | Columns

Today on the Casting Couch, we’ll be tackling one of those “Wait, how did we not cast this already?” books in the form of Jeff Smith’s “Bone.” A pivotal series that belongs on the shelf of every self-respecting comic book collection, “Bone” is one of those books that has been in development hell for years.

Casting Couch: The Incal

By | Jun 18, 2014 | Columns

About this time last year, it was announced that Nicolas Winding Refn would be adapting Jodorowsky and Moebius’ classic “The Incal” into a film, and given our review of “Final Incal” up on the site today it felt appropriate to come back to this book and give our take on the casting of it. Refn […]

Casting Couch: Ghosted

By | May 21, 2014 | Columns

After a short week break, Casting Couch has returned. Apologies for the delay. However, now that we’re back I see no reason to waste time with introductions, so I won’t. Today on the Couch, we have Josh Williamson’s “Ghosted.” Essentially Ocean’s 11 if it were a horror film, the book puts a pretty dick-ish version […]

Casting Couch: D4VE

By | May 8, 2014 | Columns

Chances are you just read Matt’s very candid (and pretty odd) interview with Ryan Ferrier in which, when they can bothered to stop complimenting each other’s hair, they discuss Ryan’s comic “D4VE.” Illustrated by Valentin Ramon, this hilarious series has been one of the most oft-praised books in Monkeybrain’s line — and for quite good […]

“Fatale” #21 is in stores now, the second issue of the final arc of the series. It’s one of the most intense issues of the series as we rocket towards the finale, and so today, switching back from the more esoteric and speculative past couple Casting Couches, we’re moving back into direct translations with — […]

Casting Couch: The Women of the Avengers

By | Mar 19, 2014 | Columns

Last week, the internet saw some fans in a fervor when frequent rumor mongerer Latino Review claimed Carol Danvers would be in The Avengers: Age of Ultron (clearly missing when Matthew said she’d be in the film back in January — but it’s OK to ignore him, we all do too). The rumors were unconfirmed, […]
