Reading Jonathan Ross And Ian Churchill's Revenge #1

This is me, watching Jonathan Ross last night, while reading the first issue of Jonathan Ross' new comic, Revenge. It's tempting to see this comic in the spirit of the Revenge tragedy plays of the Jacobean and Elizabethan eras. And it holds true, if seen through the filter of cosmetic surgery, the Hollywood machine and […]

Jonathan Ross Comes To Banbury

My parents now live in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Not too much happens there, and that's pretty much the way they like it. And there's a train to London so they can see the grandkids. I was up there this past Sunday. Not much was happening. Even the comic shop was closed. It won't be closed on […]

Revenge Vs. Revenge – Jonathan Ross And Marvel Comics

Bleeding Cool wrote about the Jonathan Ross/Ian Churchill comic, Revenge, coming out in a week and a bit. How it was originally called The Revenger but the existence of a webcomic with a similar name caused it to be renamed Revenge. And a trademark was registered in that new name on behalf of both Ross […]

Jonathan Ross And Ian Churchill's The Revenger Becomes… Revenge!

Previewed in last week's Elephantmen, Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill's The Revenger from Image Comics, will undergo a name change by the time it's published January. I'm told it will now be called "Revenge" but the lead character will still be called The Revenger. Turns out another webcomic had the same name (it might be […]

[audio:] At the NICE comics convention in Bedford last weekend, Chris Thompson talked to Ian Churchill for an hour and a half. Towards the end, he touched on The Revenger, his new comic with Jonathan Ross, as the complete opposite of Marineman.

How I Won An Eisner Award

By Rich Johnston. It's true. You won't have seen my name or that of Bleeding Cool's on the nomination, but I won it all the same. Or co-won. Or I was part of an ensemble. Or I held on to someone else's coat tails. But two San Diego Comic Cons ago, I met Mike Richardson […]

And The Winner Is… Here Are The Folks That Took Home Eisners Last Night

Jonathan Ross And Neil Gaiman To Re-enact "That Kiss" At The Eisners?

I understand that Jonathan Ross will join Neil Gaiman as guest presenters during the upcoming Eisner Awards ceremony this Friday. The last time they stood together on a stage, this happened. [youtube][/youtube] From another angle. [youtube][/youtube] Of course, they wouldn't want to repeat themselves. So… what will they do?
