Since when was it a sign of being cool that you collected and/or read comic books? Back in the day, when I collected and read comic books, it was not cool and you were a geek. Nevermind that for a while, there were dozens of high quality books being produced with top-notch art and excellent storylines.
Now, it seems every other movie being released is based on a comic or comic book character.
[*]Superman (old, I know)
[*]Batman(the good ones, bad ones and the new one which looks awesome)
[*]Spiderman (1,2, and 3 which will be out next year I think…)
[*]Howard the Duck (80’s with Lea Thompson)
[*]The Punisher (both the old crap-a-rific one, and the new good one)
[*]Judge Dredd (I didn’t break da law… I AM da LAW!!!)
I’m sure there are some that I am forgetting as well. Not to mention all of the animated movies and series that are based off of comic book characters. It is the new “greatest thing ever” to make shows and movies out of comic books. Too bad half of them suck! Like Daredevil! What a steaming pile that was! WTF was Bennifer thinking with that one? He said he [b]loved[/b] Daredevil and just [b]had[/b] to make the movie – too bad he screwed it up and made it one of the worst movies ever. As a matter of fact, I think he ties ol’ Dolph with the first Punisher movie. I digress….
I like comics, right now as a matter of fact I love Spiderman and am thoroughly entranced in the Amazing Spiderman novels written by Michael Straczynski and penciled by John Romita Jr. They are awesome! Anyway, I’m not complaining; well I was about Daredevil, I hope the trend continues and some more outstanding movies get made. I really want to go and see Sin City, it looks great. I’m looking forward to the next Spidey, and hopefully another X-Men…
