Pop Culture At Its Baddest
To be honest, I’m tired of the same old conversation about race and racism in popular culture—especially as it relates to film. Some people get where I’m coming from, but far too many don’t, and that’s where the heated debate …
This is a total rip-off of a piece done by Mark Bode in Epic Illustrated. The character is Cobalt 60, created by his dad, Vaughn Bode (one of the greatest cartoonists of all time). I drew this back in 1985, … Continue reading →
This is an old, unfinished piece I started more than 20 years ago. This is also one of the last things I ever did as a wannabe cartoonist. I had a grand vision for what this piece was going to … Continue reading →
For the most part, I only include movie posters that have been painted or illustrated. Hard-Boiled is one of the few exceptions. This is one of my favorite posters of all time.
One of my more political cartoons from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Can’t tell you how many people looked at this one and said, “I don’t get it.”
Here’s an old cartoon I drew back in 1990.
Another classic cartoon by me. What was I thinking giving up on this?
Another one of my cartoons. This one is based on a true story. And there is a typo.
Another one of my cartoons from back in the day.
Wanted to be a cartoonist for a long time. Even was for a little while. This was done 23 years ago.
Another attempt at being a cartoonist.
Another attempt at being a cartoonist.
From back when I wanted to be a cartoonist. 25 years later, and I just now noticed the typo.
America watched in fascination when the news broke that three women, all missing and presumed dead for the better part of a decade, had been found and rescued in Cleveland. Those of us not from the Cleveland area knew little, … Conti
A lot of people have been emailing me about the status of the second book, wanting to know if and when it will ever be out. Yes, the second book will be out. I’m way behind schedule on it, but … Continue reading →
I saw Warlords of Atlantis in the theater when it came out, but somehow I don’t remember anything about it, other than my mother saying, “I’m never taking you to the movies again.” Apparently, the movie is that bad. The …
Please, don’t ask me for any details about this movie, because I don’t really remember anything thing about Spy in Your Eye other than the title. This seemed to be on television all the time when I was a kid, …
I know, It’s been a while since I’ve posted an entry into the Movie Poster Hall of Fame (or posted anything for that matter). Sorry. I’ve been busy. Here we have a great poster from THE DRIVER, directed by Walter … Cont
I know that it’s be a while since I’ve posted anything, and for that I apologize. Several people have pointed out the deafening sound of my recent silence, and have mistaken a lack of posts with a lack of work … Continue reading &
BAMF’s Blaxploitation Archive is a collection of reviews originally written in the 1990s that appeared in the pages of BadAzz MoFo. This review and many others have been reprinted and collected in BadAzz MoFo’s Book of Blaxploitation, Volume One, which …
It’s been a while since the last entry into the Movie Poster Hall of Fame, for which I apologize. Since it is February, and this is Black History Month, I figured we’d take the opportunity to showcase Larry Cohen’s classic …
Check out my most recent article on MSN’s Parallel Universe, Watching Dead: The Best Movies to Watch If You Love Zombies.
Many years ago, I had the opportunity to interview football legend/actor Jim Brown. Before he would answer any of my questions, he asked me a question: “What is black?” I struggled to come up with an answer, and my first …
This was first posted on January 21, 2008. I’m reposting it now, because aside from the fact that Barack Obama has now served a full term as President of the United States, and back then he was just one of … Continue reading U
I’m not sure if Sergio Corbucci was a balls-out Communist, or a Marxist, but he was definitely a cynic who leaned far to the left, which was reflected in his westerns as early as Django. In his earlier films, Corbucci … Continue rea
Initially, I had no plans to write about Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. But in the weeks since its release, as so many people have chimed in—both negatively and positively—I regularly find myself being asked my thoughts about the movie, and …
I woke up this morning, and like many independent creators, I worried about where my next paycheck was coming from, if my bills would be paid this month, and, of course, if my creative pursuits were a waste of time. …
For me, watching spaghetti westerns is a lot like watching kung-fu flicks—it’s great when the story makes sense, but sometimes that’s just asking too much. Sometimes all you can hope for are some great action sequences, a hero that kicks …
