Nic Cage to Star in Werner Herzog’s Remake of “Bad Lieutenant”

May 20, 2008

According to Variety, Nicolas Cage, co-creator of Virgin Comics’ Voodoo Child, will be starring in a remake of Bad Lieutenant. Production is set to start in late summer and the film will be directed by Werner Herzog, who very well might be the coolest man alive. The only thing we’re disappointed about is that this film likely will not have any of Herzog’s trademark voiceover, which could make a compelling film out of a reading of the telephone book!

To celebrate this development, we’re offering $5 off every purchase of the Limited Edition Voodoo Child hardcover book of which only 1000 copies were printed. All you have to do is use the code WERNER.

You can also check out a recent Geeks of Doom review of Voodoo Child here.

Carey does the script for all six of these issues and really swings for the fences for each book. Each book is filled with great dialogue and excellent storytelling. Whether it is Gabriel journey to avenge his father’s death or the subplot involving two detectives and a string of kidnappings, Carey gives you the impression that he is building toward something bigger.

Nic Cage Rules As #1 Celebrity Comic Book Geek

May 6, 2008

In a recent Pulp Secret article, Nicolas Cage was selected as the #1 celebrity comic book geek. No surprises there! Here are some highlights from Nic’s comic book geekery:

Nicolas Cage was born Nicolas Kim Coppola and changed his name to Nicolas Cage, inspired by Marvel Comics’ Luke Cage. Cage also named his son Kal-el after Superman’s birth name. Nicolas Cage has always been a notorious collector of everything imaginable (not just comic books). However, his comic book collection was rumored to be one of the most valuable collections ever owned by a celebrity (let alone by any single person). We’re talking multiple #1s of the most famous comic book characters including Batman and Superman. The sale of his collection was said to be the highest reported amount for a comic book auction, with a total value of 5.2 million dollars.

Nicolas Cage recently created the Virgin Comics series, Voodoo Child, with his son Weston Cage. Now you can update your own collection with the Voodoo Child Limited Edition Hardcover book from our online store. Only 2000 were printed worldwide and few copies remain so act fast!
