Acme First Look #42 for 8.27.08

Look! Up in the sky!

New Acme Sign

We've once again established up a beacon for everything you could hope for in the world of comics!

Stephen's So-Called Emo Life!

  • Spaced DVD - yes, Spaced is the first ever three-peat on the Emo Life. From what you get in the feature length documentary on the bonus disc, this show was the Clerks of the UK, and everyone knows how much I love some Clerks. Imagine a live action Clerks the Cartoon. But with ladies.
  • Manifest Records - down South Blvd. in Charlotte. While loading up on $3.99 DVDs and watching the joy of my friends picking up seasons of the Wire for $30 and CDs for pennies, I remembered that the moment I discovered the spoils of Manifest months ago was the same instant that Ed McKay's was ruined for me forever.
  • Frisky Dingo season 1 DVD - got it for $10 at Manifest and watched it all in one sitting that night. I might get a ton of crap for it, but I think it's a better critique of everything we love than Venture Bros.
Mack Williams
That's me in the middle, playing Mack Williams, soundman.
  • Bear Creek Apartments - a new 16-page web comic from Hope Larson (Chiggers) and Bryan Lee O'Malley (Scott Pilgrim), completely free and viewable here.
  • The Rocker - will probably be terrible, but I will watch it anyway.

Final Crisis Rogue's Revenge #2 - I'm back on the Final Crisis bandwagon, but if you're still unsure, much like Legion of Three Worlds this week, this is a 100% safe place for displaced Flash fans!
Final Crisis Superman Beyond #1 - ok, it's written by Grant Morrison. It's Superman joining forces with other Supermen from other Earths. It's the Superman Squad from All Star Superman. Remember how good that was? Yeah, me too. And it's in 3-D. And I do love a good gimmick.
