Morning my fellow Comics Coders, today I read something in the Metro newspaper that I thought was worthy of a mention on the blog. UK rapper Chipmunk spoke of who his favourite fictional character is and yep, you guessed it (from the picture to the left of these words), it's Superman! The reason I thought I'd highlight this is because as a Superman fan myself...
Comics Coders we've only gone and brought you a brand new feature on the site! Our latest recruit/writer/general dogsbody at The Comics Code is Matt Goldsmith and as you will have seen this week he's kicked-off his debut with Push The Button; the feature where you (yes you) can push the button!
Confused? Well let me explain.
Push The Button is all about those little slices of the comic-book world that have divided opinion; films such as Spider-man 3 or X-Men: The Last Stand, that performed well at the box-office yet took a bashing from the critics. All are prime examples for a bit of button pushing so Matt gives them one last chance to redeem themselves before he erases them in The Comics Code's patented Erasing Booth 4000! Yes, at just a push of a button all those deemed unworthy get removed from the history books, never to be seen again (OK, not really, but for the purpose of a fun feature just go with it).
Matt kicked off Push The Button with the likes of The Phantom, TMNT and Captain America (amongst others) and continues this week with Masters Of The Universe and the Darkman TV pilot. No doubt your finger is twitching already, so go check it out and push the button!
Here at The Comics Code we like to spread around our love of comics and in particular we like to give a pat on the back for all those 'indie' guys and gals who are working hard on their own material.
So today I'm giving a big shout out to Christian Hall and 2nd Coming Comix! If you've not heard of Christian, then you might want to check out his website where you can see what he's been up to and in particular his comic Vasion! Written by Christian and illustrated by Nate Johnson, Vasion kicks off with the three-part 'All out war' and if you want to purchase this or any of Christian's comics, then head on over to his site!
Christian is also on Facebook, so if you want to network with him, then go and introduce yourself.
