I’ve been cross-posting items from the Awesome List to the Newsarama blog for a little while now and it’s getting hard to remember what I’ve posted where. So, to help me stay organized, starting tomorrow I’ll be moving this whole feature over to Newsarama. I’ve been wanting to get more involved over there anyway.
I’ll probably keep linking to it from here though.
Jezebel James RIP
Back when I was actively searching out Jesse James-related links because of Jesse James vs. Machine Gun Kelly, I started following news about the Gilmore Girls creator’s new show, The Return of Jezebel James. I liked The Gilmore Girls a lot, so I figured I’d check it out, but I missed that it was coming on this month.
Oh, well. At least I didn’t get hooked on it first.
Women of Star Trek
In honor of Shatner’s birthday over the weekend, EE Knight put together a retrospective of the many women of the original Star Trek series. There’s kind of a creepy poll that goes along with it, but it’s still a cool pictorial.
Spear and giant robot
The new Wonder Woman artist

Enough with the Transformers and G.I. Joe movies. When are we getting a live-action Thundarr?
Johnny Storm says, “No more Fantastic Four… probably.”
Chris Evans was my favorite part of the Fantastic Four movies. He continues to impress with this interview in which he talks frankly about the failings of the movies and how he’s pretty much giving up on the idea that they’ll have a chance to get better.
Here’s hoping he’ll get his wish for a Johnny Storm appearance in some of the other Marvel movies though. (Via.)
Speaking of giving up, that’s what CBS has done with Jericho.
It’s too bad. I’ve been frustrated with the accelerated pace of this abridged season, but I’ve put up with it in hopes for a normal, third one. Hopefully Skeet Ulrich will find something else soon. First Miracles; now this.
Jess Hickman on Oddly Normal
Jess Hickman is a friend and sometime collaborator of mine. Her current project is illustrating the most recent volume of Otis Frampton’s Oddly Normal comic for Viper, the first two chapters of which you can read here.
Speaking of friends and co-workers
My Jesses James vs. Machine Gun Kelly co-writer Alex Ness has started a new comics blog.
Here’s some new stuff that looks good from DC in June.
I’m not completely sold on this yet. One the one hand, I’m not a big fan of the art there and I didn’t enjoy Countdown as much as I wanted to. On the other, it’s effectively a new, weekly Wonder Woman series co-starring Superman and Batman and written by Kurt Busiek. Gotta at least try it out.
Birds of Prey #119
Even if it’s just for one issue, Black Canary’s returning to Birds of Prey makes me want to read it. And look! Manhunter!
Speaking of which…
Are you kidding me? The only thing that would make me more excited is a Burn Notice comic.
TV Super Heroes
By Alex Ross.
Tarzan vs. a pterodactyl
By Frank Frazetta.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
It’s unheard of now, but when Star Wars was originally in theaters, it stayed there for about a year. We didn’t have no DVDs or video tapes to watch over and over again. If you wanted to see it again, you went back to the theater.
But eventually it had to leave, and that left me and a lot of other kids looking for something to fill the hole in our little, nerdy lives. I hoped beyond hope that Message from Space might be it.
