- Okay, so I am drawing this WWII sign here. Well, most of it. Not sure I much like that face on the right and may tweak it a tad. Don’t go all nuclear
on me, but I promise you’ll see why eventually.
....Yes, that really was a word play you saw there *wink* *LOL*
Christ. I swear only I could be that person to go from Halloween ornaments, to some anime. a certain Deadman, and end up shit deep in plutonium.
That boy looks *hick*
mafiliar ... *a’la drunk Danny Parker style voice* *LOL!*
I had to at least point this out. My copy of the brand-new IDW official ‘Back to The Future’ comic #1
arrived today. This is the Ninjaink’s cover version by fellow Deviant artist of the same, Timothy Lim. There was a whooooooo-le
slew of edition covers and I’ll most likely eventually grab them all, but this is the one that first and most drew me in as I knew the artist (And that I'm a Rockwell aficionado). Without giving any serious spoilers, there are two stories in this first edition each drawn by a different artist, but both written by BTTF creator & screenwriter, Bob Gale himself!
I remember Bob mentioning before at the Q&A's how he had brought ideas into the Tell-Tale game that had been long tinkering in his head since the movies but had never seen any fruition in those films for one reason or another and how he was happy to have that opportunity do so with the game’s script. The IDW comics will serve much of the same purpose to finally at last tie up the answers to some questions both he and Robert Zemeckis were frequently asked about ---How Doc and Marty met, for starters.
Me, personally, I really loved the Tell-Tale story and even more ADORED
the young teen Emmett Brown, so imagine my absolute and purest delight seeing him again now circular 1943 in story two. To quote:
"Welcome to the Manhattan Project, Doctor Brown"
I have a friend who had gone to the WizardWorld Christopher Lloyd Q&A panel there in Philly a couple years back and he (Lloyd)
commented how they did in fact use his real hair for the 1955 scenes of Doc Brown by bleaching it. Lloyd had naturally very dark brown hair and that —forgive me if I’m not quoting 100% directly— they had to do the application in a couple stages so there had been a point in the process where he was really flaming red and Gale chuckled jokingly about “Emmett being a redhead before all the radiation.” That momentary gag found its way all those years later into the game version when they were developing the appearance of teen Emmett prior to what will no doubt evolve into the conquest and woes of the Manhattan Project. I love things like that ...those little side stories about how things came to be. So many of my best works began as corny accidents and office humor. *looking for a moment*
Christ, I haven’t updated my journal since forever. I just mailed out my final batch of Halloween ornaments topping off a very successful 2015 season that has kept me grinding away in the office since early August. Now it’s finally time to kick back with a bit of vacation time, wash off the paper mache crumbs, embrace the holiday, and welcome my brand-new and first granddaughter who will be arriving in November in only a matter of days! ~Shinju
