When THE THING became JOHN CARPENTER’S THE THING

Producer Stuart Cohen has an amazingly comprehensive making-of blog regarding JOHN CARPENTER’S THE THING

there’s a great deal worth reading but maybe none moreso than the linked piece above, about how Carpenter took advantage of a six-week break in filming to watch what he had, realize it wasn’t working, and go to town on the whole affair with a scalpel.

ME VS SDCC 2014

Friday from 11-12 is the IMAGE PANEL in room 23 ABC. Me and Kel and Chip will be there and many many more.

Then from 12-2, roughly, at the IMAGE BOOTH there’s a ticketed signing. That’s a me-and-Chipper affair.

Then at 4 I’m doing the #HowardCon show with Bendis, Jim Lee, and Scott Snyder. That’s a small town hall style thing, I’m told; I don’t know if they’ve released where it’s going to be so if you’re into that kind of thing, search that hashtag some.

We’re presenting at the Eisners on Friday evening, Kel and I, so we’ll be there that evening. She will look dynamite in a [hot pink] floor-length stunnah; I will look like a hobo someone paid in lunchmeat to act as my assassination decoy.

Then on SATURDAY from 11-12, same deal, a ticketed thing at Image. I’ll just look like me then. 

Other than that I’ll do my level best to swing by the Fantagraphics booth, as it remains a singular thrill to buy Fanta stuff in advance of its publication, especially if it’s LOVE AND ROCKETS related, and even more so if it’s from Los Bros theyowndamnselves.

“True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure - the greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation, the truer the choice to the character’s essential nature. But this? Using scissors to cut off the tip of a slice of pizza? I don’t know what this is. ”
