CAN YOU NAME ALL OF THESE HOT HOT COSTUMED NETHER REGIONS?
And I thought I was a big fan
What separates the fanboys from the fanmen (and women, of course)? A true fan will go a fan-based cruise. Announcing Firefly’s Browncoat Cruise. Find Serenity at sea!
The cruise is in the early planning stages at this point but the following details are now public:
• Our 5 day cruise sails on December 1, 2007, leaving from San Diego, California.
• Cruise destinations include Cabo San Lucas, and Ensenada, Mexico.
• Cruise will span 5 fun-filled days and 5 exciting nights.
• VIP guests including several Big Damn Heros (i.e. Firefly/Serenity cast) have been invited. They are currently waiting for additional details before they commit. We are expecting to have at least two BDHs on board, hopefully more. We also plan to have several non-BDH VIPs on board.
• Activities ideas currently include several shindigs, guest meet ups, river dance lessons, masquerade ball, fan panels, games, themed on-shore excursions and much more.
• Our goal is to have the total price for cruise and all activites to be in-line with similar land bound conventions, and considerably less than most themed cruises. And, like all cruises, the price includes all food!
• There will be a discounted non-activity pass for those non-Browncoat friends and family (is there such a thing) that want to come along for the cruise.Posted by Tim Leong on December 27th, 2006 filed in Blog |

Stephen King to Appear at NYCC
STEPHEN KING TO APPEAR AS GUEST OF HONOR AT NEW YORK COMIC CON TO CELEBRATE LAUNCH OF ORIGINAL MARVEL COMIC SERIES BASED ON HIS EPIC THE DARK TOWER
NEW YORK – World Fantasy Award-winning writer Stephen King, long acknowledged as the master of modern horror, will appear as a Guest of Honor at New York Comic Con taking place February 23-25, 2007. King will join a special panel hosted by Joe Quesada, Editor In Chief of Marvel Entertainment, Inc. on Saturday, February 24, 2007 to discuss the ground-breaking new comic book series adapted from his magnum opus, The Dark Tower.
“We are absolutely ecstatic that Stephen King will be attending the February 2007 New York Comic Con,” said Ruwan Jayatilleke, Director of Development, Marvel Publishing. “His appearance will be a huge thrill for Dark Tower enthusiasts, comic book fans, and convention-goers alike. Marvel is extremely grateful for this opportunity—and aims to make this convention a landmark event for all of graphic fiction storytelling.”
The series will expand the saga of King’s epic hero, Roland Deschain, whose quest to save the Dark Tower is captured in seven best-selling novels published over the course of twenty-five years. King’s unparalleled storytelling power will inform new stories that delve into the life and times of the young Roland, revealing the trials and conflicts that lead to the burden of destiny he must assume as a man, the last Gunslinger from a world that has moved on. The comics will work in conjunction with the novels, further supplementing and defining the saga’s mythology under the direction of the acclaimed author himself. The highly anticipated first issue will hit shelves on February 7, 2007.
Robin Furth, plotter of the comic series and author of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower: The Complete Concordance, will also participate in the panel discussion.Posted by Tim Leong on December 18th, 2006 filed in Press Release |

Sorry, Zoolander - I’ll Keep My Day Job
Many weeks ago I was asked to take part in an advertorial for the Nintendo Wii. It ran in the latest issue of Complex, which just hit stands this past weekend. Considering the whole shoot was done in about 12 minutes, I think it looks pretty decent. Not to mention hilarious.Posted by Tim Leong on December 11th, 2006 filed in Blog | 1 Comment »
Bryan Lee O’Malley Redesigns His Site — Web Site
Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley redesigned his Web site, and it looks spiffy.
I have created a new website with Hamilton’s help. I think it’s nice!!!!!!! It has posts from my livejournal, and it shows thumbnails for my six most recent flickr uploads. I like it and I hope you do too. You might even be reading this post from it. I think that is sweet.
Check it!Posted by Tim Leong on December 11th, 2006 filed in Design, Blog |
ALLOY think I’m a Young Entrepreneur
What do Justin Timberlake, the Olsen twins and yours truly have in common? For one, we’re all featured in Alloy.com’s YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS FEATURE. I don’t know how I feel about the title “Comic Book Webster,” though. Makes me think I’m only 3 feet tall.
And yes, this is the same Alloy that’s helping do marketing for DC’s Minx line.Posted by Tim Leong on December 8th, 2006 filed in Blog | 1 Comment »
