May 2 is Free Comic Book Day


Free Comic Book Day is here (Saturday, May 2nd), so get yourself to your nearest comic book store and inquire about participation and rules.  On the website, you can insert your zip code and find a local shop as well as learn about which comics will be available.

The idea behind Free Comic Book Day, which was introduced in 2002,  is to help introduce newcomers to Comics, most notably children and thus encourage literacy and healthy participation in the hobby of reading and collecting comic books.

Posthumous Oscar for Ledger

Exactly a year to the day since Heath Ledger died of a prescription drug overdose, has received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 2009 Academy Award Celebration.
His death at age 28 sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, and left fans mourning a premature ending to an already promising acting career.
It has been speculated that the rigorous demands of portraying the Joker in the Dark Knight led him to bouts of insomnia which were the reason he required prescriptions for anti-anxiety medication as well as pain killers.
The performance was indeed globally popular, assisting the Dark Knight in earning top film honors and nearly $1 billion in ticket sales.

Heath Ledger has already received a Golden Globe award, and a BAFTA nomination for best supporting actor. An Oscar for the same seems unquestionable.
NW Limited…History in VogueTM has honored Ledger with very small editions of signed, framed pieces in their DC Comics line. Many of them can be seen here.

Dark Knight vs. Iron Man

If you ask Robert Downey, Jr, who seems to have an opinion on the matter:
He admits that DC Comics’ Dark Knight made him feel “dumb” and in need of a college education, likening the movie to a Ferrari engine.  Downey also alluded that there was too much going on in the plot.
His parting shot was (and I quote): “You know what? F**k DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.”

Ironman Comic from the movie signed by Robert Downey, Jr.

Robert Downey, Jr. is Tony Stark in Marvel Comics' Iron Man

Heath Ledger portrays the Joker in DC Comics' Dark Knight

 
Have you an opinion on which is the better bit of entertainment?
Or do you think they’re both great movies, just different?
Go with the numbers (Dark Knight took approx. 155 mil its first weekend, and is the third highest-grossing domestic film of all time with $442 million in sales as it topped the movie chart for a fourth straight weekend, Iron Man raked in about 107 mil opening weekend…) or cast your vote:
Either of the above are available for purchase.
