Recently Stephen and I were lamenting the fact that Kevin Smith’s next stop in Kansas City falls on the same day as the university’s graduation weekend. Now that the trailer for Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie has been released I’m thinking I’ll just fail the semester so I can make it the showing in May. NSFW trailer following the jump.

When Kevin Smith announced he would not be making any more films after his hockey epic, he also said he was going to help other filmmakers make their dreams come true with his Smodcast Pictures banner. I don’t know if there are any other Smodcast Pictures releases out, so Alter Egos may be the first, and it is right up Smith’s alley – superheroes.

Last night, following The Walking Dead, Kevin Smith’s reality series, Comic Book Men premiered across the country.
AMC’s new unscripted one hour series, Comic Book Men, dives deep into fanboy culture by following the antics in and around master fanboy Kevin Smith’s New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. The six part series documents the daily banter of the Stash staff and customers as they geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them. Comic Book Men features Secret Stash employees Walt, manager and de-facto leader; Mike, a comic book virtuoso; Ming, the store’s technical expert and go-to whipping boy; and Bryan, who doesn’t actually work at the Stash, yet can always be found perched on a stool behind the front counter. As the team buys, sells and discovers the treasures of the comic collecting world, they share all the juicy details with Kevin through their outrageous podcast, which is woven throughout the series. The Secret Stash is not only a place for these comic book men to buy and sell, but it’s also a refuge for many to hang out and be part of a community that loves comics.
According to Smith, there are six episodes that have been ordered, and there has been no announcement of a second season.
