Wil Wheaton and I got excited and made this Three Wheaton Moon shirt. You can buy it! Then you can wear it! Only two steps to total geeky happiness? Sign me up!
I made this comic on paper! With pens! Sitting on Fancy Bastard Adam M’s parents’ couch! Did you know you could make comics without computers? I didn’t. And I still don’t! Did you know Adam’s dad’s dog farted on me? It was horrendous! Come to Baltimore Comic-Con! I will tell you all about the dog farts in person! Also the art for this comic will be for sale a the show. DOG FARTS!
Baltimore Comic-Con is this weekend! I will be in the Artist Alley right next to Dannielle Corsetto at Table #A187 or so. I will have books 1 and 2, “The Doctor Is In” shirts, “Team Edward [James Olmos]” shirts and “Ewok Stare” shirts, plus prints, stickers and Fancy Sketches.
We have had a really fantastic Fancy Bastard meetup each year. Details HERE on G+ (look for the link to the updated post with more details in the comments thread) or talk to FB Adam (who is organizing it) directly on G+ or Twitter. Hope to see you at the show and the meetup!
Commenters: Do you want more Blade Runner? Of the options offered in the comic, which do you think would work the best without screwing up the legacy of the original? Personally a “Rise of the Replicants” type movie wouldn’t offend me that much. I don’t mean “they rise and kill us all,” but rather the offworld rebellion situations. Could be fun.
HEY LOOK!: You asked for it, so I added a “Winter Is Coming” desktop to The Vault. I’ve also added “Chibi Wolverine” and “Three Wheaton Moon” desktops as well. Just make a donation of any amount, or sign up for a recurring donation subscription and you’ll get access. I’ve also added mobile versions of these desktops HERE.
It's the wrong Replicants Gaff, and they've gone wrong!
@ Roger, +1 on the best Aardman/Scott crossover line ever.
That being said, would love to see the story of Roy Batty's escape from the off-world colonies. The more heroic the better, it would make his death at the end of "Blade Runner" all the more tragic. It would also keep the mysteries of the first movie intact. I hate it when a good mystery is destroyed by a mundane explanation.
Batty said he saw attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate…. perhaps he was the cause of it. That's the extended movie I want to see. Batty's escape to Earth.
Would someone just freaking blow up Hollywood already.
I'm a nonviolent, tolerant person, but this shit just needs to stop.
they obviously will never stop themselves until they have remade/rebooted/sequeled/prequeled/moleseted EVERY movie/tv show EVER made. at which point they will just start remaking the remakes(not that they don't do that already).
Every time a new ones comes I have to fight the urge to jump out a damn window, I'd gladly sacrifice the handful of actually good remakes that come out, if it meant ending this raping of all past creativity.
(and if I have to see another movie based on a damn amusement park ride/board game/street sign I'm going to hurt someone)
/Generic Hollywood rant
I don't think it's a good idea. We already have, what, four, five different cuts of the original movie? Yeah, I'm pretty much past caring.
Just imagine, if they try to digitally de-age Harrison Ford for a prequel… *shudder*
I'd rather they find a story worth telling in the same world than just try to give us more of what we already have. Any suggested prequel just screams Terminator 3 to me.
He might as well just make "Citizen Kane II: Kane Harder."
Out of the fire like a red, hot Phoenix of vengeance, rose a sled on a downhill course with a repressed childhood…erm…vengeance. From the makers of "Transformers 9: Really!?!?!" and "Titanic Two: Electric Boogaloo" comes a movie more Kaney, more fastery, more vengeacy…Citizen Kane II: Rosebud's Revenge
Is it just me or does Josh impersonating Wallace fill everyone with merciless horror? Good job, Joel.
nothing has failed harder in the history of time than this idea.
I'd say Hitler still has this beat by a wide margin.
Not two days ago, I swore I would never Google this movie again, and you've forced my hand. Damn you.
"Nothing", you say? Allow me to present Exhibit A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezAJeaCySV4
Remind me never to click on a youtube link from you guys ever again. 🙂
Okay, I expect to be relentlessly snarked on for this. And I some point I expect a knock on my door to revoke my geek card.
BUT I DON'T GET THE THREE WHEATON MOON SHIRT!
I will accept any and all sarcasm and abuse if someone would just explain to me what it means.
That should explain rather nicely.
Now I get it. I'd never seen the original shirt.
Just a quick note to whatever FancyBastard who added the note about the Wheaton shirt. (or any other FB's who partake of wiki editing).
It's a good thing for there to be a link there to this shirt(it can only help with sales/site traffic), But as it is now, with wording like "brought forth into meatspace by…", and with how the links are done, some pedantic Wikiophile is going to just delete the whole thing. Someone should clean it up before that happens.
I'd do it up myself, but I make a point of staying away from wiki editing, it only leads to extreme annoyance, and the desire to kill people over the internet.
I agree, Batty's story would make for a great film set in the same universe – Chronicles of Riddick, as an example, was really fun.
Also, Wall-Josh in the last panel is eerily perfect.
oh yes please, a production blog would be great!
and wow, i cant wait! im sure they will be two more amazing productions from aardman!!
No! Just, no! We do not need another sequel. Stop with the damned sequels, and prequels. Seriously, the horse isn't dead, Hollywood has VAPORIZED it from all the kicking. What we NEED is for them to get the balls to make new movies, with new storylines. And that won't happen until people stop paying out the nose for crappy *quels. Don't do Bladerunner anything. How about taking a different tack, on about the same genre. Grab Neuromancer, it's been DYING to be made into a movie. Hell, break up the story, and make THREE movies out of it, there's enough materiel.
Just, don't "I, Robot" it… Actually, forget it… Hollywood can't help but to molest all of the goodness out of any book it touches…
"Grab Neuromancer, it's been DYING to be made into a movie" — I agree but, be careful what you wish for. Johnny Mnemonic was based off of Gibson's short stories. Let hope that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuromancer#Film_pro… doesn't butcher the book.
$20 says they'll bring in Shia LeBouf as Ford's illegitimate son who takes up his father's Blade Running ways.
Only in the 4th version of the reboot, where it's labeled the "Craft Services Remix/Recut"…
I don't think it's something that should be done. Despite the numerous versions of the original film, I doubt they could ever capture that feeling again. However, if it must be done and they want to have some sort of geek cred to pull people in, Nathan Fillion must play Deckard.
The smile in the third panel so perfectly replicates (zing!) the smile of Wallace. This is fantastic.
Wasn't BSG AND Total Recal 2070 both based in the BR universe? Do they really need more?
Given his notoriously bad rep amongst the American crew of BR, I wonder if Ridley Scott will stay across the pond for this one? I certainly wouldn't work for that guy, every interview I've seen him in, he's just so full of himself. What a douche.
I love Josh's face in the last panel.
I'm absolutely crackers about cheese~
