Okay, so we all google ourselves once in a while, admit it. Last night I was a little bored and took a break from working on projects and googled SENTINELS and my name. This link came up and I was shocked by it. It's a super cool mention on 411mania.com in a column by Mike Gorman. In it, Mike lists his top ten Graphic Novel adaptations he thinks should be made into films. And WTF, lol, SENTINELS is listed at number 6. Crazy, huh? See, sometimes you find good things about yourself on the web. :)

Here's the list and what he had to say about SENTINELS:

10. JSA: The Golden Age by James Robinson & Paul Smith
9. Superman vs. Muhammad Ali Denny O'Neil & Neal Adams
8. Batman: Arkham Asylum by Grant Morrison & Dave McKean
7. Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia by Greg Rucka & J.G. Jones
6. Sentinels: Book 1 by Rick Bernatovech & Luciano Vecchio
5. Get a Life by Philippe Dupuy & Charles Berberian
4. Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore & Brian Bolland
3. CVO: Covert Vampiric Operations by Alex Garner & Mindy Lee, Jeff Mariotte & Gabriel Hernandez
2. Superman Vs. Aliens by Dan Jurgens & Kevin Nowlan
1. Maus: A Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman

6. Sentinels: Book 1 by Rick Bernatovech & Luciano Vecchio: Not as well known as many of the books I have selected, SENTINELS, tells the story of a group of heroes struggling to carry of the traditions of their parents. They do without direction as their families, the original Sentinels, have disappeared. The story is unique as are the heroes. No prior knowledge or back story is needed for an audience to access a production of this tale.

Very nice!

But Maus as a movie? Cutesy mice in the concentration camp? I think I'd skip that one...

A Sentinels movie. If it ever happens I have to be in it as an extra. I want to be "guy on street corner."

WHAT!?! Rich that is some craziness! wow! I know he's just thinking out loud; but he's thinking about your work and that's gotta be plus. It's great news man. I'm really happy for you.

Rich B. said...

Lol, no way, Ryan. You get to be the "guy slapping other guy on the street corner". lol
Thanks, Rey. Yeah, it's really not a big deal but was cool that the guy thought enough of us to mention us. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to thank him someday.
