MTV’s Splashpage has a small article about a comic version of the long-delayed indie film My Name Is Bruce, about Bruce Campbell?playing himself?saving a small town from demons. The comic, although I’m sure it’s perfectly nice (and if you head to Splashpage, they have a 3-page preview). is of less interest than the fact that the movie will finally be released this October. Since I’ve doubled TR‘s readership from 15 to 30 since I last posted the trailer, I thought I’d give you new kids a chance to see the majesty and the wonder.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
