And To Think, I Knew Him When...

Saperstein takes on 'Snaked'

Producer options film rights to Meth series

Producer Richard Saperstein has optioned the film rights to Clifford Meth's comicbook series "Snaked" from IDW Publishing, the company behind "30 Days of Night."

Based on an original story by Meth, "Snaked" is a horror-noir that follows the personal and political exploits of a government employee with supernatural, snakelike abilities.

"The political arena forms the perfect backdrop for Clifford Meth's heady mix of horror, sex and mayhem," said Saperstein, former prexy of production at Dimension Films, who has overseen pics including "1408," "Rob Zombie's Halloween" and "The Mist."

IDW released the first installment of "Snaked," whose publishers call it the most "controversial book" it's ever published, in December. The third book in the series was released on Feb. 13. Meth will pen the scree…

Psycho Battle Cats

Just for fun, when either of our cats, Merlin The Grey and DeKlerq The Mental, get bored they usually lash out and whack the other on the head and begin to fight. We generally pull them apart, although I'm all for them fighting (but then I grew up as the youngest with three older brothers, so I'm used to the fights). Merlin has weight, size and age on his side, while Klerq has speed, the sharpest claws and teeth this side of a Wiltshire Staysharp knife and a Kamikaze attitude when it comes to fighting. Usually they leave no lasting damage, outside of scratches on the nose and general cuts, but last night saw a stunning battle that went through the house, up the stairs and back down again and has left Merlin with a closed eye and Klerqy limping with a sore back leg.

Serves them right I say. Seconds after this photo was snapped they split apart and Klerq launched himself through the air to tackle Merle like we've not seen before. I think it might have something to do with Mer…

Online Art Auction For American Cancer Society

Generally I don't do these sort of announcements, but with the recent passing of Jeff Healey and the sad news about Patrick Swayze I thought, well, why not? It can't hurt anyone. My pal Bill Nichols pointed me towards these auctions late last week. I had to check them out and by Jaysus is the collection impressive. There's art there, on sketch cards, by around 200 artists from all walks of life, from Steve Rude, Don Perlin, Joe Staton, David Michael Beck, David Mack, Michael Peters, Terry Pavcet, Steve Bissette, Dick Giordano and too many more to mention. You'll find something there, from head sketches to full bodied, fully coloured cards, it's all there.

Without any further rant from me, here's the official press release:

Blue Line Art is sponsoring an online charity auction of Original Art Sketch Cards. The e-Bay auction will begin Saturday evening, March 8th, following a gallery exhibit at Comics2Games in Florence, Kentuck…
