I spent all morning Thursday reading comics and it was wonderful! I think I'll do that every Thursday! Here, I'll share with you my Top 5, their solicit text, what I liked most, and their score on a 10-point scale.
I bought the Superman 5 Film Collection a while ago, but I'm just now getting around to watching it. I decided to watch them all with my 5-year-old son, Jayden, which made for a pretty entertaining experience. If I've seen these movies before, it was a long time ago and I don't really remember them; and I know Jayden hasn't seen them. So you're getting our reactions here to us watching the movies for (basically) the first time. I'm not including screenshots, so if you've watched this movie recently, it'll probably make more sense--but hopefully I've described things well enough that you can follow along. Here are my thoughts, as well as Jayden's behaviors during the movie. I hope you find them as entertaining as I did!
Eventually I would love to start writing for a real comics website. The only problem is, I'm not really ready for that kind of commitment right now. To practice getting something in on a schedule (while not having to deal with the pressure of actually being held accountable to anyone other than myself), every Friday, I'll do my Top 5 Comics of the Week. I won't go into too much detail in the Weekly Top 5; just the solicitation text, what I liked most about it, and the rating on a scale of 1 to 10.
I got my Dynamite 10th Anniversary Humble Bundle yesterday, and with it came what is now my favorite mini-series about zombies ever: Fred Van Lente's The Mocking Dead.
You would think, based on the title and the art and the CDDC ad, that this comic would be nothing but a spoof of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead, and spoofs are stupid and not worth your time (as we are reminded every time Marlon Wayans makes another movie). You would be wrong. It is so much more than that!
