Thai Pulp covers – Insee Daeng and more

Here are a bunch of Thai pulp covers from various sources collected while looking for Insee Daeng information. Not sure if it they were comics or books or a mix of both. Some of them, especially the last two, are written stories. There is also a bonus Captain America cover, because, why the hell not? You can see elements from some of these stories that made it into Insee Thong.

Movie News Droppings – Captain America, Speedy Gonzalez, Bulletface

Captain America is casting Captain America. And since Marvel wants to pay the star only $300,000 and have them signed up for nine options for future films (sequels, Avenger films, crossover flicks…) some of the big names like Chris Pine are out. But who is in?

Chace Crawford (CW’s Gossip Girl)
John Krasinski (NBC’s The Office)
Scott Porter (NBC’s Friday Night Lights)
Mike Vogel (Cloverfield)
Michael Cassidy (CW’s Privileged)
Patrick Flueger (Brothers)
They also want Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), but he hasn’t tested yet.

John Krasinski? Jim from the Office? Actually, that would probably be awesome, so we support Jim as Captain America!

Speedy Gonzalez will be a movie and George Lopez will be Speedy! Live action/CGI Speedy with non-racism, according to the producers. George Lopez is awesome, but the writers being the dudes from Garfield (Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen) and the plot about Speedy being a misunderstood boy who comes from a family that works in a very meticulous setting, and he’s a little too fast for what they do. He makes a mess of that. So he has to go out in the world to find what he’s good at.”

That path becomes clearer once Speedy befriends a gun-shy race-car driver.

Okay. Whatever.

Albert Pyun’s Bulletface has hit DVDs and you get money off if you order through AintItCoolNews.com

A dirty DEA agent is sprung from prison and given a 60 hour furlough to avenge the murder of her brother by bringing down drug lords who are peddling a DNA altering drug derived from human spinal fluid. The bodies and addicts are pilling up along the US / Mexico border.

Captain America battles Teabaggers, Marvel apologizes

First, let me apologize for the lateness of this post. Between ER visits, my wife’s birthday, and Valentine’s day, this kept getting delayed to the point where it became a huge story.

For those of you who had equally busy lives this week, you may not know that in a recent issue of Captain America (#602), the good Captain and his friend Falcon need to go undercover in an anti-government group. A group that has protests against the Federal Government, and carried signs identifying them as Teabaggers. Par for the course, as Captain America has regularly taken on enemies of America. But, the Teabaggers in real life were angry. They were mad at the picture stories that said they were bad, so they threw a temper tantrum and screamed until Marvel apologized.

Marvel is now owned by Disney, who the Fundies hate anyway because Mickey Mouse doesn’t stone the gays at the theme parks, so pretty much anything Marvel doesn’t isn’t going to appease crazy idiots who weren’t buying your stuff in the first place. So I say, don’t bother to apologize, because there is nothing to be ashamed of in fighting Right wing idiots bent on warping the country into their own personal Hell.

So here is the offending panels (Click for HUGE!):

And here are some typical FreeRepublic.com reactions:

These comic books are something only losers read, that’s why I’ll make a big fuss!

The free market is obviously a sign of outside foreign influences! And good job not reading Liberality!

Bryanw92 boycotts everything, leaving him nothing to do but to sit in the dirt. On the RIGHT side of the dirt.

Sooooo much stupid in one tiny little post!

Before the Internet Marvel was 100% hippies selling arms to Saigon

Oh, Travis McGee, your racist screed will be featured here soon enough…

Maybe if SevenofNine (don’t tell him the Federation are space socialists!) actually read comics he would be able to speak English.
e7.jpg

First of all: Taint. Second of all: Free market, baby!
e8.jpg

Rastus sure reads a lot of comics for hating comics so much. Even I don’t know that much about Seige! I did read Planet Hulk, and I recommend it to everyone.
e9.jpg

Yeah, make your protests even more of a giant circus! Please?
e10.jpg

For some perspective, besides Captain America’s own title, one of the best Captain America books was What If?, which featured various alternate outcomes of classic Marvel Comics events. Thus, Captain America showed up a lot, and many times fought against evil duplicate Captain Americas. In this particular one, a crazy, Right Wing guy has assumed the role of Captain America and proceeds to make it into what is probably a Teabagger’s wet dream:

But then the Real Captain America returns to beat down the crazy:

whatifd.jpg

So What If? rules, Captain America rules, and Teabaggers don’t.

3 Dev Adam aka Turkish Spiderman

aka 3 Mighty Men aka Turkish Spiderman
3 Dev Adam
1973
Starring
Aytekin Akkaya as Captain America
Yavuz Selekman as El Santo

From deep in the bowels of Turkey comes this instant winner of insanity! The Turkish film industry has an obsession with making low budget rip offs of American films, and in this case, they’ve pilfered Spiderman, and threw in Captain America, and even El Santo! Direct from bootleg tape to your computer. Subtitles? Who needs them! It’s not like this movie was long on plot anyway. Knowing what was going on would probably make it unwatchable.
