Alter Ego issue 143 – Don Glut

Alter Ego

While at my local comic book shop the other day I was excited to see an issue of Alter Ego featuring Don Glut!

Alter_Ego_143

In ALTER EGO #143 (80 full-color pages, $8.95), DON GLUT tells RICHARD ARNDT about his early years as an amateur film-maker, rock musician—and comic book writer for Marvel, Warren—and especially Gold Key! Don talks about the creation of such series as Doctor Spektor, Dagar the Invincible, and Tragg and the Sky Gods, and about scripting Twilight Zone, The Invaders, Kull the Destroyer, Solomon Kane, Captain America, What If, et al.!

Crystal and I had the pleasure of working with Don Glut on his movie Mummy’s Kiss: 2nd Dynasty  Don Glutand I took that opportunity to talk about writing comics and all sorts of geeky stuff with him.

Don is best known for his novelization of  “The Empire Strikes Back”

He’s a super sweet guy who was kind enough to give me a few issues he’d written. First was Doctor Spektor and the second was  issue #10 of Marvel Comic’s What If...

I encourage everyone to pick up a copy of Alter Ego #143 where magazines are sold or at TwoMorrows Publishing website. Also be sure to purchase my mini-series The Deciders!

Furthermore, you can watch Crystal and I in Mummy’s Kiss: 2nd Dynasty as The Hand Maidens. Order your copy at Amazon.com

Bare Wench Project 5 – Now Available

Bare Wench Project 5

Just released today, for the first time on DVD, is Jim Wynorski’s final “Bare Wench Project” titled

“Bare Wench Project 5: The Final Insult”

.  The movie stars me & Crystal, plus Julie K. Smith, Glori-Anne Gilbert, and Julie Strain as the Bare Wench.

If you were startled, shocked and/or sensually aroused by the earlier entries, this last knockout punch will leave you gasping for breath. Starring five of the hottest actresses in Hollywood, BW5 sweeps you into a sexy, topsy-turvy, time-bending adventure set in the foreboding badlands of Nevada, near Area 51. On a journey to debunk the steamy supernatural legend of an all-powerful erotic ghost, a curvy team of exotic models fall victim to a sensual awakening that could only come from the Bare Wench. Will the ladies get naked to survive? You bet your ass they will!”

Crystal and I had a wonderful time working with legendary director Jim Wynorski. He has done over 75 films like Return of The Swamp Thing, Chopping Mall and Not of This Earth. Needless to say we’re both excited about its release. What are you waiting for? Go purchase your copy at Amazon.com today!

If you enjoy funny,sexy, movies, starring both myself and Crystal then check out The Mummy’s Kiss: 2nd Dynasty.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra isn’t G.I. Joe: The Movie

G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra I will not be among the thousands who flock to the theaters on August 7 in order to see G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Nor will I be one of the thousands to rent or buy it when it’s released on DVD. I might catch it on one of the movie channels…but that’s if I bother to stop instead of flipping past it.

One of my favorite movies was and still is G.I. Joe: The Movie.

So why won’t I go see G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra? Well, I’m sure it’ll be a great action movie full of funny one liners and lots of things blowing up *yawn*…

The trailer alone has G.I. Joe cliche’ written all over it. I don’t give a flying [bleep] about the rivalry between Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. What makes Snake Eyes so popular anyways? Oh yeah. He’s a faceless, mute, ninja who comes across as “mysterious” and “moody”. That’s because he can’t speak!!!

At least G.I. Joe: The Movie featured a whole new group of characters instead of focusing on the already popular ones. For the Joe’s it was Jinx, Chuckles,Tunnel Rat and the main hero Falcon. (No, I didn’t forget Big Lobb…poor Big Lobb)

Cobra-LaThen there was the new group of baddies,Cobra-La. Personally, I love Cobra-La and the fact that they’re the main villains in the movie is such a twist. Even if you hate Cobra-La you can’t deny that Nemesis Enforcer was a wickedly cool character and a 100% pure bad-ass.

Here’s the clincher for me as to why I won’t go see G.I. Joe:The Rise of Cobra…no Serpentor! He’s my all time favorite villain! He’s emperor, supreme ruler and without him there is no Cobra.

GI Joe Serpentor
I’m changing the title of the new G.I. Joe movie to read G.I. Joe: The Rise of A Hooded Villain and His Minions because…well that’s what it is. Right?

I’m so passionate about G.I. Joe: The Movie that I’ve written a comic book pitch called G.I. Joe: The Return of Cobra-La and would re-introduce Cobra-La back into the comic book series. (Without disrupting the current story line)

Now if they make a sequel to this G.I. Joe movie and Serpentor is in it…well I’ll be the first one in line on opening day. Until then, I’m sticking with G.I. Joe: The Movie and my opinions.
