LICENCE TO SHILL

[Green Light]The hottest comics collectable right now? The movie treatment of "The Spirit," being used to sell the upcoming movie directed by Frank Miller to industry people. The treatment is peppered with Eisner art, but it has a cover with the Spirit drawn by Frank Miller. Which has caused copies to be ripped from the sweaty hands of AFM attendees.

And here it is.

Any reposting, please link back to Lying In The Gutters. Thank you.

Sounds good, but what the fuck's up with the Spirit's right arm?

    Heard about this at Comic Con. Frank did a panel about it. Sounded vaguely promising.

    I really enjoyed Hell and Back. What the hell happened, Frank? :(

    It looks like he's been abusing a corset.

    Frank Miller's been on this really weird "shit" kick ever since Dark Knight Strikes Again, I think. Or maybe it was before that.

    Although the Sin City movie was pretty sexy.

    Denny looks black there. It looks like he's got one of those Little Richard jerry curl 'staches.

    It doesn't matter. He made 300, so he has a lifetime pardon to do whatever the fuck he wants. Plus I really liked Big Guy.

    What. 300 wasn't even that good. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing. It just was.

    If you want really good historical fiction comics, you need to read Age of Bronze.

    I still need to read 300. The movie looks fucking amazing.

    I've got the first couple of Age of Bronze trades and all the individuals issues. Good read, but Spartans > Trojans.

    300 is tons better. I love all Greek and Roman military comics, but 300 is my all time favorite. Now that Gemmell is dead, I have no idea if his Troy novels are still getting a graphic novel treatment, so I expect 300 to hang onto the title.

    I refuse to believe that's the real Spirit design.

    It said the "treatment is peppered with Eisner art".

    Is that Spirit wearing a dress? I've never read the character, but that seems wrong.
