Did I mention I LOVE zombies? And in a wonderful stroke of fate I've ended up, limbs flailing and jugular torn, smack into a fave genre : HORROR. Although it's not my first forray into the supernatural, this experience has the unique opportunity to offer up some zombie-love!
WARM BODIES, based on the novel by Isaac Marion, has graduated to the big screen and is currently shooting in my home town Montreal. Above are set shots of the post apocalyptic carnage on one of our downtown streets. Above, a few zombies mill about waiting for a bus!
Directed by JONATHAN LEVINE (50/50), starring Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy Stupid Love), and the incredible John Malkovich ('nuff said!!!!). With me, Jose Holder, playing myself as production storyboarder ;)

A few good BASTARDS gave us an enthusiastic comic book review for I.C.E. #2, just out in stores. To be more specific, those chaps at COMICBASTARDS.blogspot! Thanks, gang! Glad you liked the book. There's much more coming down the pipe for I.C.E. so stay tuned. Our 12gaugeComics scribe Doug Wagner and I have some pretty heart-racing mayhem in store for the finale.
Here's a snippet of the review, followed by the link for the column's entirety:
"It’s a summer action movie, meaning minimal character development and tons of guns. You could almost call this book “Headshot” since there are so many people catching bullets in the nug throughout the issue. Writer Doug Wagner does a good job of having enough character moments and scenes to make the reader care about the characters, but not get overly invested in them. That’s important in an action comic since you don’t know when one of the characters is going to catch a bullet to push the main character over the edge.
The art has a gritty, real world look to it. The characters and backgrounds are all detailed to the max which really works with the book. It’s not the prettiest book, but there is something charming about the art and artist Jose Holder’s storytelling. Holder creates a believable world with some of the best action sequences in comics today."
