#782: Bearer of Bad News

February 22, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #370: Exactly Like That; #684: You Do It to Yourself

So Michael Bay announced that they were “bringing Megan Fox back into the family” for the new TMNT flick he’s producing, and Entertainment Weekly confirmed that was referring to Fox being cast as April in the flick. (Interesting that Bay used the abbreviation TMNT when it’s currently going by the title of Ninja Turtles, they’re supposedly maybe not mutants, and possibly not even teenagers anymore…? Whatever.)

For those not up on their Turtle lore, April’s occupation has been one of the big wildcards in the various incarnations: she was a computer programmer (like Franklin!) and Baxter Stockman’s assistant in the original Mirage comics, she was a reporter on the original animated series, and she’s also been the proprietor of an antique shop, dabbled in archaeology, and trained as a ninja.

Anyway. This TMNT-flavored Michael Bay is the Devil shirt has been in the store for some time, but this is its debut in the comic.

Trailer Watch: Jenny Slate in Obvious Child

Thursday, April 17, 2014

This apparently hit big at Sundance, and who doesn’t like Jean-Ralphio’s sister on Parks & Rec? Okay, maybe a lot of people, but Jenny Slate is fuckin’ funny. Anyway. Obvious Child is an indie comedy-drama about a young potty-mouth comedian (Slate) who finds out she’s pregnant and… just watch this.

Obvious Child was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. It hits theaters on June 6, 2014. It’s so indie, its official movie site is on Tumblr.
