New York City's very own Justin Wong, the king of the now defunct Chinatown fair arcade in Mott St. pulls off Two amazing comebacks in a row in this Semifinal vs Richard Nguyen.

Justin playing Wolverine, She-Hulk and Akuma on your left, the first win is nice in it's own right but the second come from behind win with AKUMA is just sick.

So many game announcements that it's hard for me to keep up or even care, but by Vishanti, the Sorcerer Supreme's debut in a fighting game can not go unmentioned.

Although I could never imagine Stephen Strange as someone who would go fist a cuffs with the likes of Ryu, his spells, teleportation and enchantments look spot on, even his creepy "I'm starting an all females defenders" pre-fight comment to CHUN LI, fits him perfectly to a tee.
 (editors note : see Strange's relationship with his one time apprentice Clea.)

Kudos to Capcom for taking a risk with the good Doctor now I can't wait to see some Iron Fist clips.

Note: They also released a clip of another addition to the game on the CAPCOM side of the game
Nemesis from RESIDENT EVIL 3, I really don't have any feelings either way but I'll add it for those who care:

Scott McCloud's Comic Lettering Tutorial ( ILLUSTRATOR CS4 )

Hand letting a comic page has always seemed to me as a daunting task that I'm honestly
not good at and now thanks to the miracles of modern computing, it doesn't seem so intimidating.

Creator of the indie comic ZOT! and author of super insightful Understanding Comics, Making Comics,
Reinventing Comics The always insightful Scott McCloud has posted a great video tutorial on how
to create a template in Illustrator ( any CS version ) that will make any lettering assignment a breeze.

The tutorial is broken up into Two , 10 minute clips, I hope you find them as interesting as I did.


Part 1

Part 2

11 minute unaired Plastic-Man pilot.

Here's an cool animated clip by artist Andy Suriano as a pitch for a new cartoon series for where else....The Cartoon Network. Tom Kenny, best known as the narrator of The PowerPuff Girls and Sponge Bob lent his voice to the title character PasticMan.

I'm enjoyed the light hearted direction they went with that owes a lot to Kyle Baker's nifty PlasticMan limited DC series from a few years ago with a hint Jack Cole's humor from the original comic.

It's a shame that this didn't get picked up since it seemed like a fun idea for a show.

Here's the Clip, enjoy:

Henry Cavill is Superman?

Warner Bros. has bravely released a first look at  Zach Snyder's Superman, Henry Cavill, in costume and so far it looks serviceable.

Mr. Cavill's hair looks like something out of the Sopranos and the colors are once again the muted variety now favored by studio execs but over all not bad.
