http://AddictiveComics.com brought you this clip of the wonderful Buster Keaton from his 1920 movie, "One Week".
Buster Keaton was one of the biggest stars of the Silent Film era. From the same "school" of physical comedy as Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and Fatty Arbuckle, he did all his own stunts. Keep that in mind as you watch this clip. Today we are so accustomed to seeing the fantastic on film through the creation of stunt doubles, camera tricks, special effects or computer generation that it is hard to appreciate the incredible timing and courage that this stunt required.
What does this clip of Buster Keaton have to do with Comics?

Bestselling Author and Podcaster, Scott Sigler (Infected, Ancestor, Earthcore, The Rookie), has teamed up with Comic Artist, Mark Hester to adapt his Techno-Horror stories into the Webcomic format. We are starting with The Rookie, a Science Fiction / Football / Organized Crime story set 700 years in the future. Here's a short synopses of the story:
Imagine a story that combines the intense football action of "Any Given Sunday" with the space opera style of "Star Wars" and the criminal underworld of "The Godfather."
"The Rookie" is set amongst a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future. Aliens play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that -- literally -- want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assasinated.
Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."
