Two New "Must See" Movies

Two of my favorite directors have new movies coming out this fall and the trailers for both look fantastic!!

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu guides Brad Pitt and Koji Yakusho in BABEL:

And Alfonso Cuaron's CHILDREN OF MEN stars Clive Owen and Julianne Moore:

Plus, Ryan Murphy directing Augusten Burrough's RUNNING WITH SCISSORS looks pretty awesome as well:

Hard At Work At SDCC

Panels and signings can be draining...

I thought I closed my eyes for all of five seconds, but I guess I was out for over half an hour. Thanks to Mike Pascuillo for snapping this pic.

Hot Cheese

This is going to be one the most pointless posts ever...

I'm not a big snack guy. I like beef jerky and dry roasted peanuts. That's about it.

About five years ago, someone turned me onto this cheese popcorn made by Tabasco. It was an amazing, spicy cheese blend or something... and it was awesome! I loved it! But then, as soon as I discovered it, it was gone. Never to be seen again here on the East Coast or anywhere else I travelled. I would ask but no one knew (or had heard of) what happened to this tasty delicacy.

Enter Brian Bendis... who was a like-minded cheese popcorn fan in a similar deprived situation, and he told me you could still get our hook-up from the Tabasco website. So I ordered it there for a while, at a hefty price no less... but eventually the time came where I just kinda quit. Or they quit. It was too much of a hassle for a simple snack food.

Until tonight.

I was out with Mike Oeming and Jen Grunwald and we stumbled into the West 82nd St. Deli (still run by two of my favorite people in NYC, Mike and Bob) and I discovered Wise has introduced Hot Cheese Popcorn... and basically stolen Tabasco's old recipe!?! They're putting out the same amazing spicy popcorn!! Same great taste, five years later!!

It's delicious. It's 99 cents a bag. And it rocks!!!

Go forth and eat!

While the cat's away...

...the cats will sleep.

Mutsumi has been updating me with daily Lotto and Clyde pics while I'm out here in California.

San Diego Pics

I bring my camera to every show I go to but never really use it, so I made a point of trying to take some pics out in San Diego this year...

The Activision/Marvrel booth where they're promoting the Marvel: Ultimate Allinace game I worked on. I cannot tell you how amazing this game looks!! It blows me away every time I see what Raven, Blur and Activision have developed!

Our Thursday signing... me with Power Pack writer Marck Sumerak and PP artists Chifiyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano of Gurihiru.

"Can you please sign 100 postcards for us, Mr. Cebulski?!" Which I happily did...

We had a wonderfull Runaways Reunion yesterday, where we got as many people who worked on the book together for drinks. From the left, that's inker Craig Yeung, ex-editor MacKenzie Cadenhead, colorist Christina Strain, penciler Takeshi Miyazawa, me and writer Brian K. Vaughan. Adrian Alphona and Jo Chen were sorely missed!

Snales On A Plane... and on the con floor!

And who's that lurking on the left, watching Marvel kick DC's ass 23-10 in softball?!

Help Support ACTOR

This September, I'll be one of several creators participating in the charity anthology, ACTOR Comics Presents... (I even get my name on the cover!) The proceeds from this 152 page benefit book, featuring original stories by Stan Lee, Paul Dini, Mark Waid, Mike Oeming, Joe Linsner, and tons of other creators, will go directly to ACTOR to help out stuggling comic artists in need. My two contributions will be:

S.A.S.E. (Send Another Submissions Editor), with art by Rob Guillory, a humorous little romp detailing my personal horror stories from portfoilio reviews at conventions over the years.

DANCE, with art by Joao Lemos (artist behind my upcoming Image book SHIKI), which is a globe-spanning silent story that shows how the art of dance can bridge cultures and unite people.

I'll be posting interior art soon. But in the meantime, I kindly ask that you pre-order this book through your local retailer. The order code is JUL062782 and it goes on sale September 13th. And please help spread the word if you can!

Thanks for your support!

Why Do I Open Myself Up Like This? :)

The first issue of my autobiographical comic, WONDERLOST, is fully written and the scripts are in the hands of the artists with pages now slowly rolling in. I've been working on putting together the stories for the second issue, which will be a little more humorous and "adult" than the first issue. Got two great April Fool's stories I remembered thanks to a conversation with an old friend! Anyway... I was just grooving with a little Jesus and Mary Chain when one of the artists e-mailed over to request a better pic of 18 year old me. So as I had my high school yearbook handy, I scanned my senior photo in for him. After sending it over, I figured 'what the heck?' and posted it here as well. So yes, that's me... 17 years and 100 pounds ago!
