Related Strips: #308: Twilight of the Nerds
The comic Keith is reading is The Night Projectionist, by Bob Heske and Diego Yapura, a horror comic (in the vein of the old EC horror comics, but with a fresh, modern flavor) about — yep — a mysterious projectionist who has to protect a movie theater full of small-town yokels from a vampire attack. (No, this was not a paid product placement, although I almost made a product placement joke in this strip — but it felt too much like I was breaking the fourth wall.)
The first issue is now available at fine local comics shops everywhere (or at Heavy Ink, if you want to order it online). It's also being serialized online in black and white as a Night Projectionist Noir (the first twelve pages are up so far, and it almost looks cooler in black and white). This first issue is all set-up, though; the second issue is where the fun really begins. If reading isn't your thing, you can also wait for the movie adaptation from Myriad Pictures, which has already been announced.
Thanks are due to Studio 407 and Bob Heske for permission to use the cover art in this comic.

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
