Pop Culture Roundup Sept. 12, 2006

John B. Cooke, publisher of The Comic Book Artist mag, is hard at work on a documentary film about cartoonist Will Eisner, which should be completed by year's end. More details, and an interview with Cooke, at the Eisner-centric Spirited Life blog.

--------------------

My how things have changed: Here's a 1990 BBC TV documentary about hypertext, hosted by "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" author Douglas Adams and narrated by former Doctor Who, Tom Baker. Found via Boing Boing.

--------------------

Exciting news for Jack Kirby fans: DC Comics plans a series hardcover "New Gods Omnibi" reprinting Kirby's entire 1970s saga, chronologically and in color. Doing that means incorporating stories originally published in the separate "Jimmy Olsen," "New Gods," "Mister Miracle" and "Forever People" titles, along with the 1980s coda graphic novel, "The Hunger Dogs." It's estimated four, 200-page books will be required to the do the job. More details.

--------------------

Speaking of omnibi, Marvel is doing one for Spider-Man, which'll contain all the Steve Ditko issues. Nice.

--------------------

Joss Whedon will be doing some more scripting for Marvel, picking up writing duties on "Runaways" with issue #25. Doesn't Joss have a Wonder Woman movie to write and direct?

Superman fly paper!

The New York Times (New York Times?! Do they realize there's at least a couple wars on?) takes a look at the revived and much-different Cracked magazine.

It's the 40th anniversary of the Monkees! I wonder if The New York Times knows...

Today's Best Song Ever: "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy" - Ohio Express



This chewy chunk of bubblegum dementia hit #4 on the U.S. charts in June 1968, no doubt driving all the "sophisticated" rock crowd crazy with annoyance. All the more reason to love it, say I. Anything that sucks the wind out of pretentiousness should be commended. Fun, and not being too high falutin', is what pop'n'roll is all about.

And along with fun, this song has a great guitar intro, hooks a plenty and maybe the stupidest lyrics ever: "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy/I got love in my tummy/And I feel like a-lovin you." You just know Dylan was jealous.

Critics loved the Ramones for being dumb. What about the Express? They were dumb years ahead of their time.

HANK KETCHAMS COMPLETE DENNIS THE MENACE 1955-1956 HC

by Hank Ketcham Hank Ketcham's Complete Dennis the Menace is one of the most successful books in the company's history, greeted by reviews with praise similar to that garnered by The Complete Peanuts. This third volume of Hank Ketcham's Complete Dennis the Menace publishes every single panel strip from 1955 and 1956 in one handsome and thick hardcover volume. Ketcham's legendary pen and ink work achieves its full flowering in this volume as do the various situations and themes that Ketcham would return to: the first "split screen" (two-panel strip) that Ketcham would occasionally use; Dennis actually flirts with a girl; he rats Dad out to Mom; exacerbates confrontations between Dad and the police; and stymies hapless baby-sitters. Oh, and Mr. Wilson finally comes front-and-center as Dennis' #1 victim.


EC ARCHIVES SHOCK SUSPENSTORIES VOL 1 HC

Featuring a foreword by Steven Spielberg this book looks back at some of the edgiest and best written stories in comic history.

DOC SAVAGE DOUBLE NOVEL VOL 1
The Man of Bronze returns as the pulp's greatest superman confronts The Devil Genghis, John Sunlight, a mad genius armed with incredible scientific inventions stolen from Doc Savage's Fortress of Solitude. Doc Savage and his Iron Crew return in two thrilling novels by Lester Dent writing as Kenneth Robeson.

SHADOW DOUBLE NOVEL VOL 2
The greatest avenger from the legendary hero pulps returns in two more classic novels by his creator, Walter B. Gibson. The Shadow's crime-fighting organization became fully-formed in The Chinese Disks, the novel which introduces as agents cabby Moe Shrevnitz, reformed former-crooks Hawkeye and Tapper, Pietro, and the giant African Jericho Druke. The novel is a sequel to Gibson's first novel, The Living Shadow, and features the return of The Shadow's first major foe, Diamond Bert Farwell. Malmordo is the final Shadow novel completed by Walter Gibson before his 1946 departure following a contract dispute, and ended his initial 15-year run chronicling The Shadow's adventures.
