Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations 200A –
Space King, Admiral Star, & Sadistic Squirrel On “Renegades Of
Reality 2nd Mix” & Who That Broad Is?
Hard to believe we’ve already reached 200 of these comics. It seems like 100 couldn’t have been THAT long ago. It’s so great to be able to mix and match all these characters.
I started with somewhere around 20 and I’ve WAY more than doubled that. For this week alone I made up 4 new ones. Space King (“Star Lord”), Admiral Star (“Sailor Moon”), and Sadistic Squirrel (“Rocket Raccoon”). These are the characters in this comic. I also made a “Gamora” character, but I didn’t end up using her.
Enough of this let’s get to the…
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 Review
First the most important question. Is it as good as the original? No. This was near impossible to achieve though. Granted this is a VERY good movie. It is VERY funny. There’s good news and bad news for comic book movies in general:
Good news: I doubt there will be a bad “Marvel” movie again. They seem to have figured things out.
Bad news: I doubt there will be any comic book movie that will crack the top 5 ever again. In case you’re wondering they are:
- The Dark Knight
- Avengers 1
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier
- Guardians Of The Galaxy 1
In the case of most of these movies you can’t recapture the magic. Of course I hope I’m wrong. “Vol.2” is a deeper movie with bigger stakes, but it’s not a “tight” as the original. Sometimes it feels like we’re stopping to look at things. Like the director is saying “look at this isn’t it great!”. One thing I liked a lot is that these characters don’t hesitate to kill. It’s arguable that even “Baby Groot” catches a body. It’s not as good as the original, but it’s still very good. Of course go see it if you haven’t.
Tomorrow we continue the 200th comic celebration with 200B. Admiral Star (who I’ll get more into tomorrow) meets Special-Girl it’s less than friendly. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
