Everyone, thank Mike Dent for sending this amazing piece of streaming film my way! Danger 5 is exploitation at its finest! Part two premiers next Monday night which means it'll be probably be posted Tuesday here.
I believe this is the same crew who brought us the amazing Italian Spiderman.
So yeah, this doesn't have anything to do with diversity or Asian American anything or comics, but some shit is just too cool not to share!

Oh boy! There's another Akira related photo posted which means, you guessed it, more happy fun time news about Steve! ugh.
Angry Zen Minion Bijan Houshmandzadeh sent over news of some more casting hopefuls. This is a list of people that Warner Bros is considering for the role of Tetsuo Shima who is apparently now Kaneda's brother.
- D.J. Cotrona (Detroit 1-8-7, G.I.Joe 2: Retaliation)
- Logan Marshal Green (Devil, Prometheus)
- Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla, Control)
- Richard Madden (Game of Thrones)
- Rami Malek (The Pacific, Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2)
- Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire)
- Paul Dano (Cowboys & Aliens, There Will Be Blood)
- Alden Ehrenreich (Tetro)
Oh, and get this, apparently Gary Oldman and Helena Bonham Carter already have parts. I'm guessing Oldman is the Colonel and Carter will be Lady Miyako. Well, I guess Miyako is awful damn pale so it makes sense for--NO IT FUCKING DOESN'T!
Well, there you have it, folks. There is nothing that anyone can say about this movie that will convince me it's something worth spending money on.
I'm sorry, Japan. Next time, keep the rights to you stuff. Sure, it's a nice pay check. But Hollywood will just wipe away anything remotely Asian about it.

It's Double Typhoon time! Kamen Rider V3! Didn't have time to record any new jams so this is the same track for the Nigo session. Not sure if I'm going to do Rider Man next or just get on with Kamen Rider X. Rider Man never had his own show and although V3 considers him to be Kamen Rider 4, he was only in a handful of episodes. Also, X is more badass than Rider Man. We'll see.

I totally forgot, but tonight I'll be part of my very first Google+ webcast with Indie Aisle to help celebrate their 1-year anniversary. They're the fine folks who did all the digital conversions for me for my book. We'll be talking digital publishing strategies and indie authoring. Should be a lot of fun. I think you'll even get to see us as we talk which is totally weird and Star Treky to me. Chat begins at 8pm Pacific which is 11pm Eastern. And then I think after that I'll be streaming some Kamen Rider V3 for anyone who has decided that sleep is for suckers. You'll need a Google+ account to join in the chat.

There are people who have big dreams and are content to leave them floating in the ether. And then there are those who grab those dreams in a fucking head lock and drag them kicking and screaming into reality. LeSean Thomas is one of the later. I've been following his career since his big break as a comic artist at Dreamwave to his stint as co-director and character designer of "The Boondocks." Now he's living in Korea working for a studio as an animation director, designer, illustrator, and, it seems, documentary film maker.
Seoul Sessions will follow the creative process of bringing his creator owned series Cannon Busters to life in 2D animation. You may remember Cannon Busters from a handful of issues published through UDON/Devil's Due. There were rumblings about a full graphic novel in the works, but with LeSean's busy schedule, it seems to have been put on the back burner. To hear that the series is making a return in animation is mind blowingly exciting and I can't friggin' wait. Yes, it's great to see LeSean's work on Boondocks and Black Dynamite and all those other properties that he's lent his distinct flair. But nothing can match the energy and enthusiasm you feel when seeing something that sprung entirely from a creator's own head. Cannon Busters was LeSean's best comic work to date and I can't wait to see more.
No word on when Seoul Sessions will properly start, but I'll be keeping an eye out.
