Luke Blanchard replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Tales to Astonish
"The Executioner doesn't have his axe. It was taken off him when he was exiled to Earth in Avengers #7 and I think at this point he hadn't been shown to have one again. The tripods were presumably a homage to The War of the Worlds. Today…"

Luke Blanchard replied to The Baron's discussion Movies I Have Seen Lately
"Watching the movie again I found the theme also appears in what I think is the Barry version in the casino scene (first when he first gives his name, "Bond. James Bond."), in the airport sequence, when he's driving to Miss…"

"I think this was where Marvel first used the "never ending story" approach."
Saturday
Luke Blanchard replied to The Baron's discussion Movies I Have Seen Lately
"It's my understanding the body of the film was scored before John Barry was brought into to do the credits version of the theme tune. Monty Norman wrote the music, and Burt Rhodes did the orchestration. I read on Wikipedia that Norman's…"
Saturday
Luke Blanchard replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #4: 'Diamonds Are Forever'
"Fleming wrote a non-fiction work about diamond smuggling, The Diamond Smugglers. It came out the year after the Bond novel. The movie's space laser is very like Zemo's in Captain America #100 (1968). But it's likely…"

Luke Blanchard replied to PowerBook Pete, the Mad Mod's discussion Anything, Everything, or Nothing At All
"Metropolis fans might be interested in this programme at Internet Archive. According to the notes it's from the film's British premiere."

Luke Blanchard replied to Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man's discussion What Comic Books Have You Read Today?
"I never caught that. It explains the "Are they on some level the same?" element."

Luke Blanchard replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion The Greatest Comic Book of All Time
"I have a favourite climax, the one in Fantastic Four #23. I think it's wonderfully imaginative. The cover depicts the crisis. Image from the GCD."

Luke Blanchard replied to Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man's discussion What Comic Books Have You Read Today?
""Starman" in 1st Issue Special #12 is like Omega the Unknown in that it's about an alien who arrives on Earth in a spaceship and encounters 1970s New York. The writer was Gerry Conway, who had just come over…"

Luke Blanchard replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #3: 'Moonraker'
"Buchan wrote The Thirty-Nine Steps, of course. The Hitchcock movie is faithful to it in many respects but adds the romance and music hall element and updates the period from just before WWI. The hero, Richard Hannay, returned in several…"

Luke Blanchard replied to The Baron's discussion Movies I Have Seen Lately
"I think it was a genuinely groundbreaking production. The first Flash Gordon serial didn't appear until the next year."
Jan 22
Luke Blanchard replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #3: 'Moonraker'
"Can I ask what authors or characters the "Predecessors" chapter mentions? I'd guess John Buchan, Sapper, Dennis Wheatley (the Gregory Sallust books), William Le Queux, E. Phillips-Oppenheim."
Jan 22
Luke Blanchard replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #3: 'Moonraker'
"The film predates the first shuttle spaceflight, which Wikipedia tells me was in 1981. The shuttle-theft sequence is based on 1977 test flights in which Enterprise was launched from a carrier aircraft. The arrival at the space station was…"

Luke Blanchard replied to Captain Comics's discussion Comics Guide: Jan. 16-22, 2023
"I think this issue is the source of the adaptation Jeff described here. Movie Comics (1939) was a tie-in comic that told the stories of movies going into release by a combination of stills and comics-style captions and dialogue. The issues…"

"'ve become a Lugosi fan in recent years. I've seen films in which he's dead wood, and films in which he's the best part. Sometimes the films are interesting for reasons other than his performance. -He appeared in some number of…"

Luke Blanchard replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads Captain America
"You raise the money and bet on yourself beforehand on the underground futures market. If you can pull off the robbery you make a killing. The market is secret run by the Thinker, who makes a very nice living from it, precisely calculating the odds.…"

Henry K has asked me to relay an invitation to you:  I'd appreciate it if you could let Luke Blanchard, Phillip Portelli, and anyone else who posted in my "NEW GODS", "WESTERNS" and "BIBLE" threads know about my KIRBY LAND group.

After a Jack Kirby Fan Group forum was hijacked by an unscrupulous individual on Facebook, Henry began his own forum, titled "Kirbyland" where he, and like-minded individuals continue to promote their beliefs on Facebook.    

He wanted you to know.
