It really does suck that Carrie Fisher died. Mainly because the thought that she lived through the heart attack she had was a glimmer of hope. For a second we thought “2016 was tough but it couldn’t kill “Princess Leia””… but then it did. Carrie Fisher played an iconic character as “Princess Leia”, she was in a classic episode of “30 Rock”, and she was in “Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back”.  That’s more than enough to gain our undying respect in my book. Also she seemed like a pretty cool lady.

I know this is too much to ask, but please hear me out… Can we stop with “Star Wars” movies now? I know they already started on “Episode VIII” so let’s just do this one and wrap it up. Cuz’ now they gotta awkwardly write around “Leia” or kill off the character as well.  That’s too much.  So “Disney” we know you paid A LOT of money on “Star Wars” and expect a big return on that investment. So I have a proposal. You make animated movies of stuff like “Dark Empire” which will be MUCH cheaper and we’ll all promise to go to the theatre just like a live-action movies. You’ll make even more money and we’ll all be happier. Just consider it.

Tomorrow all these guys are back talking about the rumor about The Minstrel. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

RIP Carrie Fisher

Luscious Trapp, Spiderous-Man & Mr. Mystic On… It Was Suppose To Be About 2016

ccc-144-theminstrelcrimsonmatroyshkaluscioustrappspiderousmanandmrmysticprojection-01

When I started this comic I intended for each comic to feature 1 person. Then during the second week the “Deadpool” movie came out and I decided that my version of him “Death Poll” would pop in on each comic. I thought it was gonna be for that week only. Then during the big “Flash/Supergirl” TV crossover I did a special comic with their counterparts “Special-Girl and Quickie”. Almost immediately 3 characters were regularly featured.  In the last few months 4 characters started showing up. I literally didn’t think anymore could fit into one comic… This week has 5 characters in every comic.  Crazy how things change…

It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do this week.  Was it gonna be yet another “2016 was the worst year ever thing”, or something saying it wasn’t the worst year ever, or something saying it was but it was our fault… On Christmas night I was gonna try to stay up and write these but I was tired to instead took a nap. I woke back up around 2 and pretty soon an idea struck me… We deserved an alternate ending…Strangely enough the that idea came from the song by Horseshoe Gang (they are this DOPE ass group  of 4 dudes and I think 2 of them are Crooked I’s little brothers. Crooked I is the west coast dude in Slaughterhouse) called “Alternate Ending” where they took “Brenda’s” Got A Baby” and gave it happier ending. I just felt like that part in “The Dark Knight” “people deserve to have their faith rewarded”.

Tomorrow Lou, Spiderous-Man, & Mr. Mystic are joined by Freedom Female and Pussy Whip discuss who might’ve have started that rumor about The Minstrel. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

George Lucas had it right from the very beginning. You had to start with “Episode IV”. The original trilogy is the story that mattered. Because “Star Wars” is about the hero’s journey of “Luke Skywalker” and maybe even moreso the redemption of “Han Solo”.  When you really think about it “Han” is the real hero of these movies. “Luke” joins the rebels because the plot gives him no other choice. His aunt and Uncle are dead and his home it burnt to a crisp (and as I mentioned before I think “Obi-Wan” knew that was going to happen and saw that as the only way he could start training “Luke”. Which is all kinds of messed-up). So he goes with the old man who at least seems to know his dad.

“Han” on the other hand not only really chooses to be a hero, but does so at great risk due to the bounty on his head. Sure you can chalk some of that up to him really wanting to bang “Leia” but still. He also saves the main competitor for her affection more than once again at great risk to himself.  He also does this with no powers, no teachers, and no personal stakes in the fight. He also pays the price for it by being tortured and frozen for several years.  That’s a good dude…

Tomorrow still more with these guy as the talk about “Space Saga Side Story: Rebel Girl & Her Crew”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

ccc-141-theminstrelmrmysticandluscioustrappandspiderousmantemplate-01rogueonememe

I don’t know how to rate “Rogue One”. I found the 1st half of it really boring, and even with the more entertaining 2nd half I didn’t really care.  50% is a fail, right? But then it isn’t THAT bad.  But it’s not good either.  Okay it’s better than the prequels right? …Yeah… But I think I’d rather watch the prequels.

I think the ultimate problem is… This isn’t really a “Star Wars” movie. It has the setting, some characters, and a fun reference of two but it’s doesn’t have the “feel”. Say what you want about the prequels (and yes pretty much every criticism is valid), or “The Force Awakens” and it’s sticking VERY close to the formula (member’) they do “feel” like “Star Wars” films. This movie doesn’t. This movie is something else… In fact when it dovetails right into “A New Hope” at the end it feels jarring. Maybe that’s on purpose though. If so is that a mark for it or against it? Let’s go through the good and bad…

The Good

  • The blind dude kicked ass
  • It was cool to see land walkers in different settings
  • The droid was kinda funny
  • The references were nice
  • Overall good action in the 2nd half
  • “Vader” murking a bunch of dudes

The Bad

  • The characters weren’t memorable. (names are misspelled or not included to illustrate the point) “Rebel Girl” is “Jyn”, the main guy is “Cassian(sp?)”, the droid is “K-something”, literally can’t name anyone else
  • The blind dude was also kinda annoying with his constant mantra. Plus he’s just kind of a half-assed “Jedi”. Just have a “Jedi” that survived or don’t
  • The droid wasn’t THAT funny.  Guy’s becoming overrated already. He did like 3 pretty funny things
  • Too much moral gray which as a review I read pointed out just doesn’t work well in a “Star Wars” movie
  • Story didn’t need to be told (the fate of 99% of prequels)
  • Again 1st half = boring
  • 2nd half seems WAY too much like just a bunch of video game levels. I could literally see the missions, objectives, achievements unlocked, and places to use cover. (It takes 2 head shots to kill the “yellow Storm Troopers”, 5 for the “black”)
  • The realization that the whole movie could’ve been “Vader” murking dudes. Why are we following this dude in the white cape?!

I dunno. If you want a kinda grim “non-Star Wars feeling” “Star Wars” movie that really doesn’t matter at the end of the day then this is alright. It doesn’t add or take away anything from the original trilogy because I feels so foreign it doesn’t count.  This is truly a “Trump era” “Star Wars” movie. “Hope” is just a word said at the end referring to something else. The heroes “win”, but it doesn’t matter cuz’ we already know the “Death Star” is destroyed and they just make another one with the same weakness that is also destroyed. Then from “The Force Awakens” we know that despite everything the “Empire” just comes back with a different name and an even bigger weapon that again has basically the same weakness.  That’s when you realize that this is the cycle forever until they just destroy everything including themselves. Ya’ll ready to stop this cycle yet?

Tomorrow all these guys are back talking about “Space Saga Side Story: Rebel Girl And Her Crew” some more. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

I went back and forth on whether I was going to do this or not. At the end of the day I felt this election was too important not to address, plus once I got the idea to have all the characters together I really couldn’t resist going for it. The rest speaks for itself. Tomorrow we go back to “normal” (in the very loosest sense of the word) comics. Hope you enjoy, go vote, and see ya then!

I’ve seen people “ship” “Batman” and “Wonder Woman” and I just don’t see it at all. As these comics have gone into, “Batman’s” relationships are messed up and I don’t see “Wonder Woman” putting up with that nonsense. I’ve seen memes where literally “Wonder Woman” just drops the panties cuz’ “he’s “Batman””, but what would that mean to “Wonder Woman”?

Depending on which version she’s either is one of, or was created by the Gods.  At the very least she is royalty. You might think “well Batman is a billionaire and that’s basically like being royalty”, but “Wonder Woman” is a special case.  The “Amazon’s” seem to live a fairly simple life.  “Wonder Woman” is the kinda gal that brings a boar to a dinner party as was mentioned before…

That’s it for this week. See ya next Tuesday-Thursday for more “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

I’m not really against “Superman” and “Wonder Woman” as a couple… I just enjoy making fun of it. I think them being together really works in “Kingdom Come”.  I don’t think them being together works in the “Dark Knight Returns” comics though.  Also I’m not sure them being together always worked in the “New 52”.  I think if “Lois Lane” is around “Superman” is always destined to be with her, but if she isn’t him and “Wonder Woman” make sense as a couple.

Tomorrow The Minstrel and Freedom Female return with The Good Knight to talk about issues between Freedom Female and The Good Knight. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

ccc-104-theminstrelspecialmanandthegoodknight

So “DC Comics” has started this “Trinity” comic with “Superman”, “Batman”, and “Wonder Woman” and that inspired this week’s comics that explore the relationships between these 3 characters. The actual comic seems pretty decent from the first issue.  The issue centers around “Lois Lane” (this being the “Lois Lane” from the the “Pre-Flashpoint” “DCU” that is married to “Superman” and has a son with him who all someone got into the “New 52” “DCU”) inviting “Batman” and “Wonder Woman” to dinner.

All that stuff in parentheses is everything wrong with “DC Comics”.

Moving on, for some reason “Wonder Woman” brings a boar… Seems like “Wonder Woman” at this point would have been in “Man’s World” or whatever long enough to know that’s not normal but whatever.

Tomorrow The Minstrel and Special-Man return along with Freedom Female to discuss their relationship. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
