The Yen Press has announced the launch of a new Japanese manga series based on author Cecily Von Ziegesar bestselling Gossip Girl books. Written and illustrated by HyeKyung Baek, Gossip Girl: For Your Eyes Only will re-imagine Ziegesar’s storylines and focus on two of it’s lead bitches: Blair Waldorf and Vanessa Abrams.
The Gossip Girl books—13 in all—follow the backstabbing adventures of troubled teen girls at an elite private high school in New York. The CW Television Network adapted the first novel in the series to produce the hit show “Gossip Girl,” now on its third season.
Kurt Hassle, publishing director for Yen Press, says:
There are few series in the publishing world that have been as impactful or successful as Cecily von Ziegesar’s GOSSIP GIRL. The novels have captured the imaginations of young women around the world, and we look forward to demonstrating with GOSSIP GIRL: FOR YOUR EYES ONLY that graphic novels as a medium can be just as welcoming to girls as it is to boys.
Especially, if the girls are down with tentacle rape!
I kid. Tentacle rape is only found in hentai. However, manga can be pretty racy and, judging this book by its cover, I’d say we’re finally gonna see some hot snooty beyotches get owned!
Gossip Girl: For Your Eyes Only debuts in January. It will be published monthly.
I’m not certain how you’re supposed to distinguish between the outfit Mickey Rourke wears in Iron Man 2 and what he wears out on the town on any given day, but I’m assured that what you see here on this poster is Rourke done up as Tony Stark’s Russian nemesis Ivan Vanko, aka Whiplash.
The synopsis for Iron Man 2 reads:
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero “Iron Man”, reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. In Iron Man 2, the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.
I don’t rock and roll every night and I don’t party every day, but I do surf the web night and day looking for interracial porn and deals on electronics. And, that’s exactly how I came across the new music video “Modern Day Delilah” from heavy metal grandpas Kiss.
The video starts off with a tip of the hat to old Godzilla movies—or possibly the Stones (”Love is Strong”)—before getting down to what the band does best: performance. Man, it’s good to see these guys can still rock out, swing from the rafters, and spit blood … although at their age that could just be tuberculosis.
Check out the video:
Kiss are currently touring in support of their new disc Sonic Boom.
Director Ti West (House of the Devil) has got some big eyebrows to fill. His new film Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever is the sequel to Eli Roth’s gleefully gross, flesh-eating-virus frightener Cabin Fever. Released in 2003, Fever marked Roth’s directorial debut and quickly established him as the new face of horror, a distinction he would go on to cement with 2005’s sleeper hit Hostel.
West, however, is no slouch. The young director has been generating a good amount of buzz for his satanic chiller House of the Devil and, judging by this just-released trailer, proves to be just as sick as Roth. Check it out:
Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever arrives on DVD and Blu–ray disc on Feb. 16 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Bonus features include audio commentary, gag reel, and a BTS featurette. An unrated version of the film will also be released.
