Word has been circulating on the Internet recently that DC Comics is going to start an advertising campaign in January, running eleven different commercials on select cable television channels to advertise the trade collections of the first wave of Rebirth books. These include AMC, IFC, TBS, TNT, TruTV, El Rey and Boomerang. Not the most watched of networks, but they don’t have to be. Smart idea, I think. Let me tell you why.
Amazon and MGM really want to make a Buckaroo Banzai television series, but in order to make it happen, MGM is suing Banzai creators Earl M. Rauch and Walter D. Richter over who owns the rights.
Some people really like to talk. Some like to take their overly winded speech and turn it into a massive rant on anything from Subject-A to Chimpanzee. But who is the Geek Rant King? That’s the question from Spoilerite Silvergray this week, as he pits Max Landis against Kevin Smith. VOTE!

I’ll admit that I’m a big Kevin Smith fan, and love his enthusiasm and energy he brings to movies and pop culture.

When it comes to sounding off, many of us can go on a jag ranting and raving about comic books, working in call centers, or driving in Topeka. But when it comes to the Geek Rant, none can hold a candle to Kevin Smith and Max Landis. But who is the Geek Rant King? VOTE!
Comic Book Men has been a big success for AMC, so much so, that it is giving Kevin Smith another show about comic books and pop culture.
