Marvel Value Stamps

Any geek worth his weight in comics remembers the mighty Marvel value stamp, but just what were they? How did they work? Could you send a letter to the Watcher with one as postage?

Courtesy of the ever-extraordinary Neilalien for taking me back on this otherwise lackluster Friday.

Vintage Circus Art

As you've probably noticed, we've been kinda lazy here at DAC the past week or so. The day job has been kinda time consuming and I've been reassessing what the hell I'm going to do with my life once I grow up. Still, there's always something fun to look at on the WWW. So, once more from our friends at BB comes another interesting link to some groovy images. This time around, it's vintage circus posters.

We love us some olde time freaks.

We3 Movie

The following is from Dark Horizons:

Writer Grant Morrison is in negotiations to adapt his "We3" comic book into a feature film for New Line Cinema says Reuters. Don Murphy is producing.

"We3" was a three-issue limited series written by Morrison and drawn by Frank Quitely. It revolved around three pets -- a dog, a cat and a bunny -- kidnapped from their homes by the government and hard-wired into military battle suits, turning into robo-assassins.

When their government masters deem them expendable, they break out into the free world and try to find their true home, all the while reverting to their more traditional animallike behavior.

Insiders describe the tale as "Homeward Bound" meets "The Terminator." If the project goes forward, it would be a rare effects-heavy pic for the studio as the animals would be entirely computer generated.
