For Katie by kaijukid
For Katie
Taking a break for a little while from the comic work because between a full time job, full time classes and life, it's safe to say I'm burned out.  All my artwork this week has been purely for recreation and mental relief, including this one, which has become something kind of special to me.
There's a fantastic and lovely voice actress named Katie Leigh, who even though she's not a household name has been in an awful lot of things people my age especially have loved.  She provided voices for the Smurfs, Pound Puppies, Alvin and the Chipmunks, My Little Pony, Dungeons and Dragons, Totally Spies, Muppet Babies and a slew of other things, but the most meaningful and beloved for me was her role of Connie on the Adventures in Odyssey radio show, and watching the original My Little Pony with my wife we both agreed she was pretty adorable as Fizzy.  But as Connie, Katie managed to do a couple of things that is pretty rare for an actress to really do well; she inspired me to be a better person, in my daily life, in my faith and just in general.  She's made me laugh harder and cry harder than a lot of people tend to portraying fictional characters, and when I contacted her to present her with this very picture she was an absolute sweetheart, which is also a special blessing for me.
So with love, respect and appreciation my wife and I dedicate this one to Katie.  You're the best!
Memories of GFest: The Magnificent Nakajima by kaijukid
Memories of GFest: The Magnificent Nakajima
Honest to God, one of the happiest moments of my life (which is why it's all the more tragic that I was such a putz back in 2008 and didn't think to get any better pictures, but it literally was my first convention and I was so nervous I couldn't think straight).  Meeting and getting an autograph from the original Godzilla himself, Haruo Nakajima, who literally embodied my childhood (and adult) hero Godzilla in twelve films from Godzilla 1954 to Godzilla vs. Gigan.  This was also my braided ponytail stage.....*sigh*
He was a massive sweetheart and the picture is showing him humorously chuckling at my attempts to greet him Japanese, which I can only imagine how that sounded :P  I also kind of overdid my bow which I think also amused him.  "Geez, this American kid really thinks I'm hot stuff!  Hope he doesn't have a shrine to me back at his house...."
*Sam whistles to himself and looks over at the huge Godzilla toy shelf.....
Top 20 Movies Countdown: #9 by kaijukid
Top 20 Movies Countdown: #9
#9: Batman Begins

Don't get me wrong, if you were to ask me what my favorite incarnation of Batman is for pure enjoyment I would immediately answer with "Batman the Animated Series and the original long run of the comics".  I've got hundreds upon hundreds of Batman comics, so I consider myself a pretty reasonably hardcore fanboy.  I have a lot of love for the 90s films (particularly the '89 original and Returns), and Mask of the Phantasm is absolutely brilliant.  But honestly, Batman Begins just had the right balance for me of a live-action Batman I wanted to see, a live action Bruce I wanted to see, and Ra's Al Ghul being played by the inimitable Liam Neeson was a dream come true.  That, and Scarecrow is my all-time favorite Bat-villain, so that played into it a little, too :P
The Dark Knight may be the better Batman film overall, but this one still wins out on my personal tastes and needs meter.

Memories of GFest: Surfer Bros
From G-Fest 22 in 2015, one of the special guests was Noboru Kaneko of Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger and Godzilla: Tokyo SOS fame.  He was a very fun guy and made us all feel very much at ease, not the stereotypical shy/retiring Japanese manner ;)  He was enthusiastic and manages to show off my shortness in all our pics together.  He was rather embarrassed by all the attention he was getting over his Power Rangers fame, ironically, considering he wore that Red Ranger shirt that whole day.

By majority vote, a new fan project for ultimate kaiju victory, a retelling of Godzilla vs. Gigan!  There's some parts here you'll recognize, some new things and some lost things, for those of you deep into Toho movie history and things that ended up on the cutting room floor.  Stay tuned, planned releasing schedule of two pages a week.
The suggestion was made to me (and sounds kind of fun) to try making a "media" or screengrab comic.  If you're not familiar with those they're just taking pictures from a movie, arranging them in comic book format and adding the dialog and sound effects in word bubble format.  Here an example from the Viz release of Howl's Moving Castle....

Hi, dude. In case you got the invite, i was trying to invite you as a member, but i accidentally sent a co-founder invite. So, it's okay if you don't accept it. I'll understand.:)

You know, I've been thinking about it for a while, and I think that Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, Godzilla in Hell, and the upcoming miniseries Godzilla: Oblivion are all connected in a way.

Some shots of the new Godzilla suit was leaked. It's....well, I'll let you judge for yourself.…

No prob, I always feel bad that I never take the time to lurk around other people's work that I'd like to.

I'm sorry to have missed it (though it appears I'm joining the club), but Happy Very Very Late B-Day.
