  Tuesday Comix Roundup!  
 
 
Posted 2003-12-02 by Tony Walsh
 
 
     
 
Local "new skool" comic factory Bright Anvil Studios, founded by an old pal of mine, has completely revamped their web site, offering something in the order of 500 images to browse.

Orneryboy's Michael Lalonde has whipped together 80 fine icons from his strip-- the icons are on display at Mess.be.

Comic Jams are so popular, everyone's getting on the comix train! From Canada's East Coast: The 100 Proof Comix Jam, founded last year by a London, Ontario native and a St. John's, Newfoundland lad. From across the sea: Kim Larsen's Globalcomicjam.com, with world-spanning helpers Amer Kokh (Jordan), Ken Wong (Australia), Pedro Lopez (Denmark), Rico Schacherl (South Africa) and Tim Boyle (USA). No Canadians, hmm? Pity.

  Rat Launch Success

Thanks to everyone who came out to the "Rat and the Beanstalk" launch last night. There was a steady flow of attendees all night, and just about everyone picked up a comic or two. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of back-issue bundles that were sold. The DJ Stardust Dakota crew provided some ass-shaking tunes, the Cameron House was extremely accomodating, and the Comic Jammers were scribbling up a storm in the back room. All in all, a great night.

Salt for sore eyes goes comic jammy: Nov. 17.

Toronto artist/writer Diana Tamblyn is hawking her tawdry wares (actually they're quite good) on her Web site "Speedlines.com. Diana's latest book "Writer's Block" has been critically acclaimed and was nominated for an Ignatz award this year.

Yes, I'm still gearing up slowly before the carnage breaks loose in the Rat Boy / Jenny Everywhere crossover. Call me crazy, but I think I'd like a little character devlopment and storytelling before things start to explode. Must be showing my age...

For the third week in a row, Michael Lalonde has blessed us with 2 Orneryboy strips:
Extra strip.
This week's strip.

Tomorrow night is the next installment of the Toronto Comic Jam.

Brian Fukushima of Bentcomics.com has uploaded a bunch of new strips, hop over to his page and check `em out!

It's a lesson in linguisitcs for Limpy in this week's Rat Boy strip.

Orneryboy makes a big impact on the late night scene.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) marks another installment of the Toronto Comic Jam at the Cameron house. At 8pm there will be a launch for "Walk," a comic book by rutz, published by Open Mind Comics, and at 9pm the jammage begins.

Catch the legendary Jet Li in "Fong Sai Yuk" tomorrow at the Royal Cinema!


Director: Corey Yuen Kwai
Cast: Jet Li, Joesphine Siao Fong-fong, Michelle Reis, Adam Cheng, Sibelle Hu, Chu Kong
Hong Kong / 1992 / Cantonese with English Subtitles


Fong Sai Yuk (Jet Li) is the best kung fu fighter in town...next to his mom! A local noble organizes a martial arts tournament with his daughter's hand in marriage as the prize... but the opponent to defeat is his wife! Sai Yuk purposely fudges the fight after mistaking a homely maid for the prize. His infuriated mom then steps into the ring, disguised as Sai Yuk's "brother"! Sounds crazy, but it was screened at the Toronto Film Festival and is said to be one hell of a fightin' flick. Click here for cinema details!
