Rolling Stone reports on the reunited Os Mutantes:

On July 21st, Brazilian psychedelic legends Os Mutantes, once known for their outrageous multimedia spectacles, will reunite for their first tour since 1973. The shows will be the first ever in the U.S. for the group.

...While founding singer Rita Lee will not perform -- "I bless this Mutantes reunion," she chimed in over e-mail, "but I'm not in the mood to get back into the past" -- brothers Arnaldo and Sergio Dias Baptista and drummer Ronaldo "Dinho" Leme will be joined by a sextet of musicians.

Pop Culture Roundup July 20, 2006

Is a film based on DC Comics' Doom Patrol in the works? Variety says so.

...with Akiva Goldsman producing the bigscreen adaptation through his Warners-based Weed Road Pictures.
Studio has hired Adam Turner to pen the screenplay.

"These are some of the most original, offbeat comicbook characters we have ever come across, and Adam Turner's unique sensibility makes him a perfect fit for the material," Goldsman told Daily Variety.


-------------------------------

In other supermovie news:

Marvel Comics plans a new Hulk movie directed by Louis Leterrier, creator of "The Transporter" sci fi films. Sound like it'll be sort of a "do-over" with a new cast and take on the Green Goliath. Good idea, considering how horrid the first one was.

And "Hellboy" director Guillermo Del Toro is slated to do a film based on DC's Deadman. This is a natural as far as superhero flicks go. A ghost who inhabits other's bodies--the concept is very unusual, cool and full of possibilities.

------------------------------

By the way, here's a recent interview with comics scribe Arnold Drake who, Hollywood studios should not forget, co-created both the Doom Patrol (with artist Bruno Premiani) and Deadman (with artist Carmine Infantino).

It's never too early to start making a stink: Let's see Arnold get an on-screen credit and some cash when these movies roll out.

Bubblegumfink shares some "Hardy Boys" trading cards. Wasn't Sean Cassidy just the dreamiest?

I know! I know! "Paul is dead"!!!!

Legendary Beatles producer George Martin promises a prize to fans who can crack a "code" found in the upcoming soundtrack to The Beatles LOVE, which is now playing at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.

More.

Today in sharity: Ymu Sumac Live in Russia 1961.

--------------------------------

The stolen-but-recovered "Let it Be"-era Beatles tapes recently in the news may find their way to official release soon, says Apple Records honcho Neil Aspinall.

"These tapes have huge commercial value. They've got over 80 hours or more of sound footage on them of The Beatles recording and chatting about everything. There's lots of very unknown stuff and music on there that they wouldn't have recorded in a normal session. For example, they covered over 200 songs on these tapes, songs of the day such as Bob Dylan," the Daily Mail quoted him, as saying.

All this, of course, would be very exciting if we hadn't already heard a lot of stuff years ago on bootleg and know the majority of it to be pretty much godawful.

Rembering Mickey Spillane, Datajunkie shares a batch of Mike Hammer radio shows.

------------------------

Comics artist/writer Frank Miller will direct a film based on cartoonist Will Eisner's famed strip, "The Spirit," Reuters reports.

Production is slated to begin in about a year. Miller already is working on a draft but must first finish "Sin City 2," said Deborah Del Prete, whose Odd Lot Entertainment banner will co-finance and produce "The Spirit."

Let's hope the result pays homage to Eisner's original version and isn't just another tired "dark" Frank Miller take on things.

------------------------

Two great tastes that go great together:



------------------------

Peter Hawkins, the actor who gave terrifying voice to Doctor Who's Daleks died July 8, the BBC's official Doctor Who site reports.

For most fans of Doctor Who he was, with David Graham, the voice of the original Daleks, working on every Dalek serial of the 1960s as well as the two big-screen Dalek movies.

------------------------

In other Doctor Who news, composer Murray Gold's sountrack music from the latest seasons of the show will be available on CD soon.

------------------------

Most unfortunate album title ever? (Sorry, no sharity link for the music, but the album is set for reissue soon).



-------------------------

USA Today's Pop Candy recommends some "comics for people who don't read comics."

Pop Culture Roundup July 18, 2006

Datajunkie shares a buncha cool Grey Morrow-illustrated sci fi book covers from the Perry Rhodan series.



-------------------------

Today in exotica: Les Baxter and the 101 Strings - Que Mango!.

-------------------------

Even more exotic: The Hidden Island - "A compelling story of love's secret moments and tender emotions" with music by the Tradewinds Orchestra and narration by David Janssen (star of TV's "The Fugitive").



--------------------------

Mickey Spillane, golden age comics writer and creator of the hardboiled Mike Hammer novels, died yesterday.

--------------------------

Entertainment Weekly provides a cover peek at Dark Horse Comics' new "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" title. Featuring scripts by Joss Whedon, the series picks up were the TV show left off.



---------------------------

The Independent has a piece about the new documentary "The U.S. vs. John Lennon," which details the Nixon Administration's effort to boot the ex-Beatle out of the country.

The Lennon movie, which opens in US cinemas in September, will embarrass the agencies which unsuccessfully tried to block his stay. Not only does it portray the full extent of the plotting against him, it also exposes the amateurish incompetence with which it was conducted. At one stage, secret FBI files compiled to demonstrate the threat he represented did not even record his correct address, despite the claim that he had been under "constant surveillance".

Hip tip: ZBS Media radio shows

Jack Flanders. Either you know the name and are a rabid fan of the guy's exploits or you've never heard of him before.

Same with Ruby. You know, the galactic gumshoe?

When it comes to the audio adventure shows produced by ZBS Media, there's no real middle ground. People either don't know about 'em or they love 'em.

And what's not to love?

I heard the first Flanders series, "The Fourth Tower of Inverness," on college radio back in 1976 when I was in fourth grade and instantly loved the wild storylines mixing suspense, comedy and philosophy, the great performances and the incredible sound effects.

Flanders is a young American guy visiting an old family estate in Scotland. The mansion has three towers, but Jack sees a fourth. He's warned not to investigate but, inevitably, does. From there it's wild and weird explorations up stairs, through doorways and secret passages and into strange new dimensions.

Listening at night, with my headphones on and eyes closed, the series was an incredibly rich entertainment experience.

Fortunately, the station kept playing Flanders adventures over the years and I was able to keep up with our intrepid hero and his expeditions to Morocco ("Moon over Morocco"), alternate dimensions ("The Adventures of Jack Flanders") and Brazil ("Dreams of Rio").

And I got to hear the earliest exploits of ZBS' other popular hero, the Ruby, in her various series blending sci-fi with satire.

All great stuff, all like nothing you've ever experienced before.

The adventures of Ruby, Jack and the various one-off shows and series produced by ZBS over the years are nearly all the product of the imagination of one "Meatball Fulton," otherwise known as writer/engineer Tom Lopez.

Fulton's scripts carry the influence of comics, movies, pulps, eastern philosophy and much, much more, but reside in their own universe. Much like Joss Whedon has created a Buffyverse or Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had a Marvel Universe, this is a Meatball-verse. Things in this world move, and work, very much in their own fascinating and goofy way.

If you enjoy the stuff discussed here regularly (comics, pulps, movies, music, old-time radio, etc.), you're sure to like Fulton's stories. You owe it yourself to check 'em out.

The ZBS Web site has audio samples and downloads, or you can order the different series on CDs. Amazon has 'em too.

I see that Meatball now has a podcast, too. I'll need to check it out.

MARVEL SPOTLIGHT: HEROES REBORN/ONSLAUGHT REBORN
Written by JOHN RHETT THOMAS
Ten years ago, the Marvel Universe was transformed in the aftermath of the Onslaught
Saga. Both the Fantastic Four and Avengers were shunted out of the MU we all know and

CAPTAIN AMERICA and IRON MAN titles all telling stories that took place in this new
universe, with comics luminaries like Jeph Loeb, Rob Liefeld, and Jim Lee on board to
make it happen. Fast forward ten years, and Marvel is looking back on this big event in its
history with ONSLAUGHT REBORN, a new story set in the Heroes Reborn universe,
with none other than Jeph Loeb and Rob Liefeld reunited on creative duties! This month,
MARVEL SPOTLIGHT talks to Loeb, Liefeld and other principal creators about the past,
present and future of Heroes Reborn, as well as other Marvel projects they have on their
plates!

Written by DAVID LAPHAM
Art and cover by DAVID AJA
Wolverine has been injured before, but never like this. Blasted with 5,000 rounds of
machine gun shells and lifted to the edge of earth’s atmosphere by a giant robot,
Wolverine was 85,000 feet in the air when he finally disabled the killing machine. Now,
after a horrendous descent and fiery crash into a rural Nebraska cornfield, he lies at the
edge of death, lapsing in and out of a coma as his body desperately tries to heal. And
that’s when things really get bad.
The men who sent the robot to destroy Wolverine have come to finish the job. The
townsfolk who witnessed the crash have gathered up a mob to hunt down and destroy the
alien that’s landed. And Wolverine’s fate just might rest in the hands of the strange little
girl who first found him in that dark cornfield. A strange little girl with an affinity for
taking care of odd creatures, and whose family holds a deep, dark secret hidden from the
light of day... House of Blood and Sorrow is an all new 34-page chilling story just in time
for Halloween! Written by David Lapham (Stray Bullets) and illustrated by David Aja

When the Son of Satan is your best option, God help you.
New Orleans. The Big Easy. The membrane between our world and the underworld has
always been a little thinner here. Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the
outpouring of human misery has drawn demons like sharks to a bloodbath. What better
time for Damian Hellstorm --- a.k.a. The Son of Satan -- to pay a visit?
It starts with the doctor who delivers a baby that vanishes into the night. A doctor who is
devoured by demons wearing New Orleans PD badges. Demons who work for someone--
or something--that’s descended on the Big Easy and doesn’t’ give a damn who Hellstorm
or his father is. Something that’s harvesting body parts in a furious race toward
unspeakable purposes. This is The Son of Satan as you’ve never seen him before,
brought to you by acclaimed novelist Alexander Irvine (The Narrows), with searing art by
Russell Braun (Animal Man) and Klaus Janson.

Art & Wraparound Cover by SEAN PHILLIPS
This fall crime noir smacks you right in the face, as award-winning writer Ed Brubaker,
whose recent hits on Daredevil, Captain America and the X-Men have made him one of
the top writers in the field, joins best-selling Marvel Zombies artist Sean Phillips for
CRIMINAL, a new ongoing series from Icon. Navigating through a world of smoky
barrooms and double-crosses to present tales of heists, murders and cons, CRIMINAL is
determined to be different than any other book on the shelves today.
In our debut issue, we meet Leo, who can plan the perfect heist... but only if he can be
convinced the job is safe enough. See, Leo is not a shoot-first think-later guy; Leo is a
professional. But to some criminals, even professionals, the right payout is worth almost
any risk. So when an old friend and a crooked cop approach with a plan to seize millions
of dollars in contraband from an evidence transport van, Leo must make tough choices,
knowing there’s nothing you can trust less in this world than a cop on the take.
And as a bonus, each issue of Criminal will be packed with material, featuring a full
length continuing story, as well as back-up stories and articles about the crime genre in all
its forms from the pulps to the modern day.
