The roots of these fan films go back years and require some explaination – fortunately one of the creators, Garrett Gilchrist took a moment to lay it all out for you, and hopes you’ll check out some clips and maybe even buy their DVD. It’s better if he explains it.
Or as I like to think of it, The Bill Murray / Harold Ramis Classic Comedy Collection DVD.
Sony Entertainment has announced that they will be releasing a 3 disc set of Bill Murray comedies this January 17th (too bad it missed this Christmas season.) The collection will contain Stripes, Ghostbusters, and Groundhog Day (all of which also star, were written, or directed by Harold Ramis) and appear to be whatever recent DVD version has the most stuff packed into them – the Stripes DVD, for example, is listed as being the Extended Cut version that came out earlier this year.
Nothing new, but a nice set if you don’t already own these classic comedies or are looking to buy them for someone. The suggested retail price is $24.95, though Amazon is listing it for $18.71 (not a bad deal, when you consider the Stripes DVD alone lists for $14 bucks.)

Image Comics has a new series, Fear Agent, which I will be the first to admit I know very little about. It comes off like a grittier Doctor 13 or Challengers of the Unknown – whatever the case, in a recent issue a very familiar piece of equipment can be seen (see above.) It might be an interesting series to check out!

Way back when, back when the collected edition for 88mph Studio’s Legion series was being solicited in Previews, a tiny, blurry scan of the proposed cover art was shown – that cover was created by 30 Days of Night artist, Ben Templesmith. Ultimately the collection changed into a hardcover and Templesmith’s art was replaced by that of Alvaro Pardo (the changing to a hardcover didn’t have anything to do with the artist change, I was just being flowery in my writing – no one’s sure why Templesmith was replaced.)
Now Templesmith has posted a better scan of his cover – it’s a shame really. It was a really nice piece.

I never really thought about it, but business author Daniel Sitter uses the conversation Venkman and Co. have with the Mayor as an example of everything you should do when making a sale. Have a look for yourself, it’s mildly amusing.
