Comics Week: President Obama, You Cannot Touch the BOMB QUEEN

BQ6_2_PREVIEWSsmall1

Panel & Pixel’s Cover Action thread rises from the pit of despair and hits us with Obama joke covers by BOMB QUEEN’s creator, Jimmie Robinson.

For those of you just tuning in, these are the things you need to know:

  • Over the last few months we’ve noticed comics publishers are not immune to “The Obama Effect.” tracking this effect has become a new obsession of ours.
  • BOMB QUEEN is about “a villainess who has eliminated and subsequently banned all superheroes from the fictional city of New Port City. She rules the city as a benevolent dictator; the limitations she has placed over the city’s criminals have made her a popular leader.”
  • Mr. Robinson was kind enough to let us post both covers on this site.

Comics Week: Choose Your SURROGATE

Here’s to catching up in the eleventh hour.

When thinking on all the comics to movies projects that’s hit the screens in the last few years, we discovered we couldn’t think of a one to hit the screen this summer.

SURROGATES, a Bruce Willis helmed film based on the Top Shelf Productions comic of the same name.

Several humans are murdered when their surrogates are destroyed, and cop (Bruce Willis) investigates the crimes through his own surrogate. After a near fatal encounter, his surrogate is destroyed, which forces him to bring his human form out of isolation and unravel a conspiracy behind the crimes.

The viral site is up. This, of course, means that you can create your own surrogate.

There’s a trailer after the jump.

Comics Week Tuesday Tease: A Kiss From Tokyo

A Kiss From Tokyo“, Theatrical Trailer (1964) – Yuki 7 dashes around the world in hot pursuit of the tantalizingly tricky Diamond Eye, who is stealing parts and plans and leaving behind a path of murdered scientists in her quest to build a missile inside her volcanic lair.

A secret agent lady running around in her lingerie. She’s a bit gun crazy, as all attractive young spies must be. Her clothes fall at the drop of seduction. Her book is available for pre-order at Fleet Street Scandal.

We must say that this is the classiest comic book trailer that’s ever met our eyes.
