PETER DAVID DESPERATELY ASKS FANS FOR HELP (WHICH IS KINDA WEIRD IN THIS CASE, BUT SURE)

     * Incredible Hulk: The End
     * Spider-Man 2099 (vol 1)
     * X-Factor (vol 1)
     * Madrox mini-series
     * X-Factor (vol 3)
     * Supergirl (vol 4)
     * Aquaman (vol 5)


Peter David writes:

I am in desperate trouble
I was going to post this tomorrow but then realized people might think it’s an April Fool’s joke, so I’m doing it today.

Pretty much everyone has private things that have happened to them that they don’t want to discuss publicly. Well…this is mine.

Many years ago I had a television series on the air called Space Cases. And I made a lot of money that year. I mean a lot. And I had a ton of money sitting in my bank account ready to send to the IRS on April 15th. It was all good.

And then the day that I was going to send the check, I swung by the nearest ATM to withdraw some cash and was astounded to see that half the money in my account was gone. Why was it gone? Because my then wife withdrew it in order to pay for a divorce lawyer, which was how I found out my marriage was dissolving. So the money never went to the IRS because I had to use the remainder to hire my own attorney.

Over the years, I never managed to land another project that would pay me that much. I had lots of people make promises–I even did the work for some of them–and none ever came up with the money. Meanwhile I tried to make payment arrangements with the IRS but they didn’t last, because throughout the year I’d send in the payments but then on April 15 I had no money to pay the income tax because I’d already sent them all my spare money.

Then they seemed to just forget about it. Which was great.

Except recently they now seem to have remembered. And they want all the money, plus penalty and interest, or they are going to financially destroy me.

How much? $88,000.

So I’m asking you guys.

I’d love to say that we want the money because we want to repair the house, which is in desperate need, but that’s not the case. Every cent is going straight to the government.

Is it possible? Well, I have 5000 Facebook followers. If they each sent $10, that would get me halfway. I have over 13,000 Twitter followers. If they each sent $10, I’d be in the clear with money to pay any taxes due on the new income.

My Paypal account is padguy@aol.com. Don’t use the donate button on this site; that will send the money to the Heroes Initiative.

Do you want to get something for the money? Fine: Send a check to my PO Box, PO Box 951, Bayport, NY 11705 along with books of mine and a SASE and I’ll sign them and send them back. That’s something, I guess.

I’m sure that there are people out there who will be overjoyed that I’m having financial difficulties, but I’m hoping the rest of you will not judge me too harshly and help me out.

WRONG ALIEN: WARRIOR USED IN OTHERWISE-REALLY-NICE 'ALIEN' PRINT


Check out this sweet, commissioned print by DAVID BENZAL!

__

You know how I'm a stickler about using the proper Alien Design in artwork, so there's a couple things here that hinder the piece from being knocked out of the park, in my opinion:

1) The Alien used in the print is not from 'ALIEN', but is instead the Alien Warrior seen in James Cameron's 'ALIENS'. 


Furthermore, the alien image itself is lifted from the 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' video game artwork.

2) The Egg, while looking pretty sweet, incorporates the egg lip "skin folds" seen in later Alien movies such as 'Alien: Resurrection' and 'AVP'. 


If I had to guess, I think the added texture seen on the egg body is from that promo seen above (lower-right). Shrug.

Here are Giger's Eggs from 'ALIEN':

IRON FIST



Finn Jones on 'Iron Fist' martial arts training:
"I had three weeks of very intense martial arts and weight training preparation. But then unfortunately once the show started, the filming schedule was just so tight... really, I was learning the fight scenes 15 minutes before we actually shot them because the schedule was so tight. So 15 minutes before the stunt director would talk me through the choreography and I’d just jump straight into it."
