The video game Batman: Arkham Asylum will have Mark Hamil as the voice of The Joker. I'm so excited about this news. Mark Hamil's Joker is one of the best jokers ever!!! Mark Hamil was the Joker in the 1990's Batman - The Animated Series television show. I wonder if they will put in Harley Quinn too. With his contribution this game will rock even more!!!!
It will be released on the x-box 360, PLAYSTATION 3, and Windows Vista / XP.

Randal Graves from Kevin Smith’s brilliant film Clerks has is number 92 on Empire’s Top 100 Greatest Movie Characters.
Why He's On The List: Randal is the voice of countless generations - anyone who's had a shitty customer service job in their early twenties will understand his attitude, wishing they could have articulated their frustration with his artful profanity and supreme disregard for, well, anything. But the key to Randal is that he doesn't necessarily hate his job, it's just that he remembers not to care (Empire).

It is great to see how many Speculative Fiction characters make the list, especially in the top 10. It makes me wonder if we should make our own list.

With Halloween fast approaching are you still looking for that knock out costume? Rotten Tomatoes would like to help. They put together a great costume guide on 16 different movie characters. Each character or set of characters is set on their own page but they put a nice thumbnail navigation at the bottom of each page making this a pleasant experience. The 16 characters to choose from are Jay & Silent Bob, Indiana Jones, Juno MacGuff, The Fox, Carrie, John Rambo, Marty Mcfly, Zohan, Nurse Joker, Neo, The Dude, Goo Yubari & the Crazy 88, Margot, & Richie Tenenbaum, The Grady Twins, and Toshio and Kayako. The guides are great and include a nice picture of the character, a huge plus when trying to get the costume right. A list of things that you will need for the costume which is a helpful reference. For instance if you want to dress up like Jay you would need long blonde hair. A list of movies they appear in so if you really want to get into the character you can watch them in action and pick up their nuances taking that cosplay to the next level. They also include a classic line which can be used to better act out the character, a nice feature but too short for best cosplay. For instance on the Jay and Silent Bob page they include the line “Snoochie Boochies” a classic Jay line but for Bob they should have included Bob’s classic line which would be “______ *shrug*.”
Now all I have to do is decide which one to go as

Dean T. Fraser has drawn a brilliant set of Superheroes in the style of the Simpsons at his blog, Springfield Punx. They are giggle inducing.
He has just started what might become a Thundercats series. You should definitely check out the blog if for no other reason than to see what the world would be like if we lived in Springfield.
Dean’s art is interesting and humorous, check out his other work at DeanFraser.com
