I’ve got a bit so say about the “Wonder Woman” movie but here’s the tl;dr version. It’s a C+ movie that is SUPER overrated…

Alright, let’s get to it…

Wonder Woman: Overrated Or Savagely Overrated?

America, we need to have a talk. We have a problem… That problem is “tipping the scale” to make two sides even. That’s part of how we got Trump. We need to stop it now! When it comes to movies “Marvel” and “DC Comics” aren’t even. “Marvel” is better in every conceivable way. Besides the “Thor” movies every “Marvel” movie is better than every “DC” movie. This includes “Wonder Woman”. Currently “Wonder Woman” has 93% on “Rotten Tomatoes”…. To say the least, it is not an A- movie. If “Wonder Woman” is an A- movie then you’d need two newer higher letter grades for “Marvel” movies.

There are reviews that compare it to “The Dark Knight”. This is a level of insanity that is ludicrous. “Wonder Woman” has the same major problems of “DC’s” last few movies. These are:

  • Most of it is boring
  • It’s colorless and gray besides the early first section
  • The end fight kinda sucks

‘Wonder Woman” is one of those movies where everything that was good about it was in the trailers. The action is sparse. There is some action but these parts are minutes. By the time you think “that was cool” it’s over. Then you’re back to waiting for the movie to get to the point. When it finally does it get kinda interesting. Then you get to the final fight that isn’t impressive. Sorry, the bar got raised passed this. That’s enough for today I’ll talk some more about it throughout the week.

Oh Yeah Today’s Comic 

So I took a little risk with the crazy font used to Special-Girl’s drunk talk. It’s one of the the many fonts I found while looking for new ones for this comic. It can be hard to read, but to me it captures what a drunk person talking would “look” like. Tomorrow Badassia gets swapped out for Spiderous-Man and more drunken ranting ensues. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Wonder Woman : Can The Movie Live Up To The Hype?

So Wonder Woman is coming out on Friday. I’ll more than likely see it this weekend. So far the reviews are VERY good. As I write this is has a 97% on “Rotten Tomatoes”. My prediction is it will be pretty good, but not as good as people are saying. It seems like the other “DCEU” movies have made expectation so low it’s getting overrated. I hope I’m wrong though.

On to the comic. So I made “Admiral Lightning” from the same island as “Freedom Female”. “Admiral Lightning” is my version of “Sailor Jupiter”. This explains why she’s so tall and strong. Also when I thought about Freedom Female’s origin I wanted the idea that other girls got to leave the island. The fact she wasn’t allowed to is part of why she does leave. There is a reason why she wasn’t, but I’m saying that for when I tell her origin.

That’s it for this week. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” on Tuesdays-Thursdays. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

ccc-205-jpopadmiralstaradmiralaandsadisticsquirreltemplate-01ccc-205-jpopadmiralstaradmiralaandsadisticsquirreltemplate2-01

I had to cut a lot of of this one. Every character had more to say. J-Pop’s verse was longer. Admrial A said something about how there was almost a nationwide boycott on her. This was over a subtle weed reference in one of her songs. To me the stuff I changed with Sadistic Squirrel’s dialog was for the better. Him cheering for J-Pop to choke wasn’t in there when I first wrote it.

Half-watched Half Review Of The Season 2

Finale Of Supergirl

So I half watched the finale to “Supergirl” while I worked on this, this morning. The finale seemed okay. A little anti-climatic, but not bad. I can’t see “The Flash” pulling off anything that going to make it worth the season we’ve been through with this show. Everything about “Savitar” alone makes it impossible. Guess we’ll see though…

Tomorrow finally meet all the other Celestial Admirals. There are:

  • Admiral Bubbles
  • Admiral Fire
  • & Admiral Lightning Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

It should a warm and friendly reunion between friends…

Special-Girl, Admiral Star, & Badassia On Apologies & Atrocities

ccc-201-specailgirladmiralstarbadassiatemplate-01ccc-201-specailgirladmiralstarbadassiatemplate2-01

Here I introduce my “Gamora” character. She’s another of The Renegades Of Reality are my “Guardians Of The Galaxy” characters. These characters are a little different than the other. They are in most ways parodies of the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” team. Some of them though, are mixes of several characters. “Badassia” is a mixture of :

  • “Gamora”, (of course)
  • “Aeryn Sun” from “Farscape”
  • “Sarah Conner” from “Terminator
  • “Leela” from “Futurama
  • & “Samus” from “Metroid”

    I noticed all these characters were the same type. Also with “Space King” I combined:

  • “Star Lord” (again of course)
  • “John Criton” from “Farscape”
  • & “Phillip J. Fry” from “Futurama”

 

These characters were also the same type. The “normal” guy thrust into crazy space adventure. There’s also several “unspoken things” between these two character types.

 

 

 

 

 

 

unspoken

The other big thing in this comic is the “twist” to “Sailor Moon” for “Admiral Star” and her team. I debated hinting at it yet, but I figured a character like “Badassia” would have to say something about it. Besides I have more up my sleeve…

Tomorrow Admiral Star and J-Pop have another conversation. Things go a little different this time. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

ccc-200A-spacekingadmiralstarsadisticsquirreltemplate-01ccc-200Aspacekingadmiralstarsadisticsquirreltemplate2-01

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:

  1. The Dark Knight
  2. Avengers 1
  3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  4. Guardians Of The Galaxy 1
  5. Deadpool

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!

Ms. Majors On The Story About Her And The Innovator Beefing (Censored)

ccc-75-msmajors

Before we get to this comic, looks like early reviews for “Suicide Squad” are coming in and it’s not looking good.  “Comic Book Resources” gave it a pretty good review though.  As I’ve said before I only think it’s going to be okay. We’ll see in a week though…

Anyways back to “Civil War II”. (SPOILERS for “Civil War II” #4)

There’s this whole part where “Iron Man” is going on and on about how he doesn’t want to fight but the “evidence” is “forcing his hand”…. Except the evidence shows the guy who can predict the future has always been right, and “Captain Marvel” used his info to save tons of lives. Even the lady “Captain Marvel” detained hasn’t been proven innocent (though it’s still stupid she did it. Seriously they don’t have other people to take care of stuff like that?). Nothing about the situation has forced “Iron Man’s” hand. That’s makes this whole series feel more and more like pointlessly going through the motions til’ we get to “Marvel’s” new status quo.

Tomorrow we check in with Spiderous-Man has he discusses his uncle and picking sides in a fight. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

The Innovator On The Story About Him And Ms. Majors Beefing (Censored)

ccc-76-theinnovator

As this comic might suggest “Civil War II” #4 pushed me to really disliking “Civil War II”.   The argument makes no sense;”Ironman’s” position makes no sense; and good characters are being killed for no reason.

(SPOILER ALERT for “Civil War” #4)

So “Iron Man” discovers that this kid that can predict the future can only see the most probable future (which I could’ve swore he already found out last issue) and somehow that’s suppose to change everything. So “Iron Man” assembles the “Illuminati” to tell them this, and they’re basically useless and say little more than “I dunno”. Then dumb stuff happens and it’s finally a face off with “Iron Man” and his heroes vs “Captain Marvel” and her heroes… Except “Captain Marvel” calls in the “The Guardians Of The Galaxy”… I don’t buy it… Even if some tie-in comic explains it better I still don’t buy it… People traveling from space to be a part of this dumb fight breaks my suspension of disbelief.

Next time Ms. Majors talks about this stuff. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

The History Of Comics With Q-boy #52 The Colorful Countess AKA The Secret Weapon (Censored)

The History Of Comics With Q-boy #52 The Colorful Countess AKA The Secret Weapon (Censored)

qbs52c

Marlene Severie is based on Marie Severin whose was one of very few female comic books artists during the Silver Age of comics. She started out as a colorist and eventually moved on to doing penciling and inking.  She is probably best known for her work on Marvel’s comedy magazine “Crazy” and the comedy comic “Not Branch Echhh”.  She also helped to co-create the original Spider-Woman.

Panel 4 is based on two panels from two pages from Not Brand Echhh #3 (panel 3 on the first page and panel 5 on the second page) which you can check out here http://comicsworkbook.tumblr.com/image/135398438602

I hear some people have been talking about that 3rd Captain America movie that came out…. So yeah I ended up seeing it twice on Saturday.  Some have said it’s the best Marvel movie… Other say it’s the best comic book movie period…. Does it live up to the talk…. Is it truly the greatest of the great?

(spoilers ahead)

Well first to be very clear it is a very good movie.  BvS can’t even be mentioned in the same sentence. The big showdown is absolutely awesome and ranks up with the best fights ever…. But no it’s not the best comic book movie.  It’s not the best Marvel movie.  It’s not even the best Captain America movie.  Marvel’s weakness in it’s movies are usually the villains and this one has a very weak villain with a plan that make little sense and with a weak motivation.  The big problem with this movie is in trying to keep the villain and their plans mysterious is make them confusing. Here some other nitpicky stuff

  • The movie tries to be a Captain America movie but it really should’ve been named “Captain America & Iron Man : Civil War”, “Avengers: Civil War”, or “Marvel’s Civil War”
  • Cap’s position is dumb.  I just can’t get behind it. They make Tony and the government go too far, but it just seems like there was a way to easily comprimise
  • Wanda literally just killed a bunch of people and Tony is like “she should lay low for a bit” and Cap’s reaction is like “you MONSTER!”
  • Aunt May being young and hot just feels wrong.  I think it’s important that Aunt May is kinda old and frail and Peter always has to worry about taking care of her.
  • Spider-man in general could have been fit in more neatly. You just change the “college” speech/grant scene to a “gifted student” scene and have Tony see something that gets him to figure out Peter is Spider-man
  • They just kinda wasted Crossbones
  • The kiss with Agent 13 didn’t feel earned
  • Kinda weak to introduce all these “other Winter Soliders” and then do nothing with them

The unsung hero of the movie is Falcon. He really kicks ass in the movie.  I was really cool seeing a more “typical” Avenger’s mission. No one feels like the they were over powered and underpowered in the fights. One small exception is toward the end when Iron Man and Cap are fight it seems like Iron Man’s armor suddenly get damaged way easier than normal. I’m not sure where I rank this movie about I think the top 5 comic books movies are…

  1. The Dark Knight (honestly may be unbeatable with Heath Ledger’s “Joker”)
  2. The Avengers (also may be unbeatable because you can never recapture the magic)
  3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (just plain a great film. Avengers only beats it because it has all the other heroes)
  4. Guardians Of The Galaxy (another just plain great film. Cap 2 only beats it out because it’s darker and he end credits scenes are better.  It’s that close)
  5. Deadpool (pretty much every second is violence, something funny, or both. Honestly this might rank higher if I re-watch all these)

Next time with see the comic Marlene created with features a big fight with Kill-man.  Also Tuesday-Thursday new Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
