Wherein We Connect John Hughes to Kevin Smith to Zeus Comics' New Web Series
Speaking of the late John Hughes, one of his biggest acolytes is Kevin Smith, who told The Los Angeles Times last year, "Basically my stuff is just John Hughes films with four-letter words." So happens that the writer-director of Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma will bring his one-man stand-up Q&A act to Dallas on November 7 at the House of Blues; tickets for the evening-with are available here.
And speaking of Smith, his comic-book-smudged fingerprints are all over The Variants, a Web series from the folks at Zeus Comics. The premiere episode debuted yesterday (on new-comics day, natch), and it's veeeerrry Clerks-y. And, it's after the jump. Highly recommended if you have any idea what I'm talking about. Any idea at all.
