It's been eight years since Heath Ledger died from a lethal drug overdose. Heath Ledger's father recently sat down for an interview to discuss his son's truly tragic death.


“The last conversation Kate had with him was this discussion about his medications and she warned him, ‘‘You can’t mix drugs that you don’t know anything about’,” Ledger’s father Kim told news.com.au.

“He said ‘Katie, Katie, I’ll be fine’. Well, that’s a cavalier boy’s answer. It just put his whole system to sleep I guess,” Mr. Ledger said.

Heath's father went on to say that his son wasn't addicted to opioids--he just made the mistake of mixing the wrong drugs. And that Heath's chaotic work schedule had begun to take its toll on the actor.



“There is pressure on everybody, especially young people, to perform and to keep going. He was a young guy that travelled all the time for work. Even as a two-year-old, he hardly ever slept. He was trying to work and travel and do everything in a short space of time.”

RIP Heath Ledger you were a fiercely talented young man, taken from us all too soon.

Rumors surrounding the potential revival of 'The Tick' show have been running amok since 2014. 'The Tick' was created by Ben Edlund in 1986 as a mascot for the New England Comics comic book store chain. 



In 1988 the 'satirical' character was even given his own comic book series, which eventually went on to lead to an animated TV series on Fox in '94. 

Check out some photos that Amazon just released for the long awaited revival below!

Yes, Marvel's baddest villain's getting his own comic series folks. Writer Jeff Lemire, and artist Mike Deodato are set to chronicle Thanos' ongoing exploits in a new series that's launching as part of Marvel NOW.



It looks as if we'll be following Thanos for the long haul, as he attempts to regain his throne as Marvel's most feared 'n vile villain.



As for Thanos' mission in the new comic series, here's what writer Jeff Lemire had to say:

The loathing runs very deep here, guys. Just last week, Marvel released this year’s Spider-Gwen Annual, an 'alternate-reality series' that portrays a black female Captain America as a hero. The villain's known by everyone as the Mental Organism Designed as America’s King, or more crisply, “M.O.D.A.A.K.”

M.O.D.A.A.K. wails incessantly about 'foreign filth' and how he wants to squeeze 'n crush America in his allmighty powerful hands...

Readers have already been quick to note the glaring similarities between the comic's villain and Donald Trump himself:

Judging by Latour's Twitter feed, which touts a marked dedication to a hatred targeted at Trump, you've gotta think the talented Marvel artist really was inspired enough out of a passionate hatred to create a villain that exists solely to make fun of Trump.
