Actor Tomas Janes’s Self Financed Punisher Short Film “Dirty Laundry” Is Bloody, Violent…And Ultimately, Pretty Cool.   Leave a comment

Hey Everybody,

Actor Thomas Jane decided himself  to take on a short film of Frank Castle, The Punisher for release around July’s Comic Con. Directing, staring  and financing the Hard R short himself, he shows his love for a Marvel character as yet to have a great feature film made, even the one he stared in back in 2004.

Obviously A fan of the character, Jane quoted as saying in 2007 in an interview with Quint at Ain’t It Cool News:

Punisher fans are already fighting an uphill battle as it is. And I’ve always felt a responsibility to fight that fight for them and with them so that Frank Castle gets the treatment he deserves.

It’s a cool thing when an actor puts his money where his mouth is. I say a good effort by Jane for sure. Hope to see a few more Punisher shorts from him,  a Vietnam flashback setting type thing maybe. That would be really cool I think. We’ll see what else this brings for our favorite Marvel  anti-hero.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.

Lots Of 2012 Kick Ass Comic-Con Collectible Pics. It’s Quite A Bit Late, But Rad As Hell…   1 comment

Hey Everybody,

Usually I have a San Diego Comic Con article up right after the Con in mid July, but my wife having our daughter in early July set back writing and anything else involved  in not getting though the early weeks of having a new born. I figured I’d still post a bunch pics I assembles from the internet of the set up and mostly the Sideshow and Hot Toys booth but there is also a mix bag of other stuff to get a sense of what was there this year. Lots of great things for collectors coming this year from my two favorite companies.
