Here at Koslowski Central we had a magnificent time Trick-Or-Treating dressed up as the ADVENTURE TIME cast. Stella was Jake, I was Finn and Sandy was Marceline. Home-made costumes and they really turned out great and were fun to make. Especially since Stella, who had planned on going as Marceline, didn't know that we were secretly making the Jake and Finn costumes at night and while she was in school! What a shock she had when we strolled out in the costumes. Of course (and we expected this) as soon as she saw the Jake costume she wanted to be him (no offense Marceline).
Sadly, walking around in the Jake head was a bit disorienting for poor Stella and we had to cut or T-O-Ting short by about half. Still got a lot of candy, though.
Exciting other news regarding my career as a comic book artist! I have been contracted to illustrate the background art for a new "Motion Comic" titled, TEMPLE." It is a fantastic horror story that Amazon Studios is producing. I'm not sure of the release date yet but I believe we're looking at a major launch for Comic-Con 2012. I will, of course, keep you posted.
And!...I just received my copies of the ZOMBIES VS CHEERLEADERS VOL 1 trade paperback! This collects not only my terrific 3 GEEKS story and cover art but over a hundred other hilariously gruesome stories and cover art. I'll have TPs available on the site soon but in the meantime look for them at your local comic shop.
Been trying to maintain our interest in THE WALKING DEAD but it's so damned downbeat we're struggling to continue liking it. You gotta give these poor bastards the occasional victory, writers! Yeah, we know...end of the world. Apocalypse. Yes. But they still need a slice of happiness here and there. And for cripes sake are there the obvious story holes! Why in the HELL would they still be driving around in that piece-of-crap RV when there must be thousands of abandoned RV dealers across the country that they could simply take a new one??? Or a band of Hummers??? Or Military vehicles??? And they have two, TWO, cops in their ranks. Um, don't you think everyone would have a friggin' walkie-talkie so they'd always be able to communicate? Don't get me started. LOT of story holes.
And we really, really wanted to like AMERICAN HORROR STORY but we gave up after three episodes. Too weird. And we like weird, but not when it's just for the sake of being weird. The characters don't ring true and just how much super, horrible bad stuff can we really be expected to believe can happen to one poor family so quickly and in such volume? Seriously. There is a fantastic quote that goes something like this..."It is easier to make the viewers believe the impossible, than the improbable." I can suspend my disbelief that a "man can fly" in a movie but I'm not going to swallow "twenty murders happen in this house; crazy maid basically gives herself a job the owners can't afford to pay for in the first place; they don't change the locks even after crazy girl next door keeps getting into house (and her klepto mother); Freddy Krueger-like guy always chasing husband while jogging in a suit; and so on..."
Really wanted and needed a good horror genre show to get into but it ain't happenin'. Was going to check out GRIMM or ONCE UPON A TIME but the reviews haven't exactly been enticing us on those either.
Maybe next year, right?
