Holy Poopenbloggen

Alright, time for another useless update on my goings on. The full time job is still going strong as you can tell from the lack of updates. Just a quick update on '30 extra lives' here, I am still writing outrageous amounts of scripts. The next one I do will be another 3 parter. Dont know if Im gonna do them all at once or maybe go back to the once a week thing. Ive got this job for another two weeks, after that Ive got about 5 or 6 days before I go to maine with a special someone and then school starts up again, so Im gonna try and, at the very least, get a bunch of pencils down on a lot of comics. Im pretty sure Im gonna keep coloring them because I think it give it more pop. Also Im gonna try and get some basic backgrounds down that I can use so its not so boring with a white background. I do plan on purchasing a domain very soon and when that day comes you'll be the first to know, but I would say within the month. Im also trying to redesign the comics site to incorporate both this thing and the comics. Im debating about whether to migrate these posts over to the new site or just keep these here with external links. But thats for me to worry about.

I went and saw Clerks II over the past weekend. When I first came out of the theater, my response to 'what did you think' was a resounding 'meh' but the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. I definately plan on giving it a rewatch when the dvd drops and see what I think of it then.

On to real comics news: Ultimate Spiderman is finally picking up and Im happy Im still getting it. Supergirl was also dropped along with friendly neighborhood spiderman. I did pick up a tpb called Bomb Queen: WMD(woman of mass destruction) and loved it. Absolutely hilarious and just a great read, although not for the kiddies, thats for damn sure. Civil War just keeps getting better with a return of a major character in #3. Oh, and for those who dont know, Civil War is Marvel's big crossover of the summer/fall and involved the Superhuman Registration Act that requires all superheroes to register their identities with the government and causes a rift in the universe leading to a ::drum roll:: Civil War! And while Avengers were the lead of the first big crossover in this trilogy with Dissasembled, and the X-Men in House of M, Spider-Man is definately the focal point of Civil War and I couldnt be happier. Speaking of the big Spider, Im gonna pick up this shoit tonight that has the 60s animated Peter Parker head saying "My spider sense is tingling!" Just all kinds of hilarious.

And in childhood wet dream/nerdgasm news, the new TMNT trailer is up and looks all kinds of awesome. There's also an interview about the game all over the web. Both look amazing and March just cannot get here soon enough. I loves me my toitles. And I think that just about covers it, Im getting my comics later tonight as well so if I have the energy, Ill try and throw up some reviews.

Do Wah Diddy

Well, its been quite a while huh? About a month and a week since the last update. See the thing is I got a full time job so that takes all of my time, and thats sitting in front of a computer so usually the last thing I want to do once I get home is to sit in front of a computer. Anyway, some quick movie reviews and update on the comic are in order.

Lets cover the comic first. Now that Im at home, ive lost access to a scanner. I can run into the library in newark, but usually im just not up for it. With the loss of the scanner comes a huge delay in the comic. Im still sittin on a crap load of scripts and keep writing new ones every few days as things pop into my head. So when I get a scanner back they'll be plenty of updates. But yeah, until then the comic is on haitus, which may last until the end of summer.

Now about movies, I went to see X3 and Superman Returns. Ok, X3, I went into it with such low expectations I came out satisfied. Sure it wasnt as good as it would have been if Singer was behind it, but I think the way they went about the cure was interesting even though there were fair amounts of plot holes. Like why didnt they cure Jean instead? But some of the depowerings were surprising and I like to be surprised. It was decent, and while I cant entirely recommend it to anyone, a fan of the X-Men should enjoy it as long as the understand its a different interpretation of the characters they know from the comics or the cartoon.

As for Superman...man I wish Singer stayed on X-Men, Superman was awesome. Everything youd want from a Superman film. While a few of the shots annoyed me because it was very predictable like when a helicopter falls out of frame and you're supposed to go "Oh no, they're gonna die!" But then the camera stays put and it comes back into frame. He did that a few too many times. Also, Im not so sure how i feel about the kid aspect, its interesting, but Superman can never be with Lois without breaking up a family...just kind of depressing. But these are just a few hangups in an otherwise brilliant film. Long live Singer and him directing movies with people running around in tights.

I think thats about it, Im still readin comics and all, just no energy to post reviews. Civil War is awesome, Ultimate Spider-Man is realllly dragging and I quit on Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man. But the trailer for Spider-man 3 is out, looks all kinds of awesome. Ok, thats it for now, expect more sporadic updates as the summer progresses
