James Cameron turns Ellen Ripley the survivor into Ellen Ripley the take-charge alien-fighter: sci-fi/action fandom calls it a classic. James Cameron turns Sarah Connor the survivor into Sarah Connor the take-charge terminator fighter: again, a classic. James Cameron brings back Sarah Connor and introduces a female super-soldier and they try to protect a female character: millions of fragile man-babies cry out in the YouTube comments: "this is a 'woke' PC Hollywood man-hating agenda movie!"
Here's an oldie, but a goodie: This was commissioned in 2013 for Vworp! Vworp! magazine. Pertwee didn't get a #Cybermen story during his run as The Doctor, so I put him in one. He was always tinkering, and he absolutely would have cracked one of those guys open on his workbench. Now available as a print, here: https://gum.co/Yzipb
A few years ago, Entertainment Weekly had me do a riff on Roy Lichtenstein's "Oh, Jeff...", with Anna Faris as the girl on the phone. Faris liked it, so they licensed the #illustration from me this year to use it as the official artwork for her podcast. I mentioned it on my website when the EW piece came out, and it's worth restating: Abruzzo's original #comics panel is way better than Lichtenstein's -- or mine, certainly!
It's tough when your 5-year-old comes home from kindergarten saying "that's gay!" and your first instinct is to scold and say "we don't say that!", etc.. Then you have to take a breath and tell 'im that his pre-school/after-school teacher that he loves is gay; the midwife that delivered his sister is gay; his old babysitter is gay; the nice neighbours up the street with the garden he likes are gay—and we don't say that because when you do it's an insult to all of those people you care about.
We need more extremely cheap movies. We need more movies where you and your friends shoot the footage on your phone & then cook frozen ravioli or eat peanut butter sandwiches after the shoot. When you do the effects yourself, instead of laughing at it, you can be proud of it, because you did it with dollar store catsup and the big movie did it with million dollar CG and it's more than one one-millionth as good as the big movie's effect.
My five-year-old, listening to the #radio:
[announcer speaks for ~30 seconds, gives station ID and announces the next track...]
"Dad? Is this an ad?"
"No, it's the DJ."
"DJs are annoying."
