New Flash Costume screams “Shut up, crime!”

new flash costumeObviously, The Flash has been around forever – since 1940, in fact.  I don’t know what it is about this new Flash costume for the upcoming TV show, but there’s something about it that screams “Shut up, crime!”  And I haven’t even gotten around to seeing Super yet, and it still pops into my brain ever time I see it.  I guess that for me, there’s just something inherently dorky about that flash suit.  I just can’t put my finger on it…

Superman vs The Elite movie review (Mixers and Movie Reviews)

This video review is an outtake from our Man of Steel episode.

Here, we’re jawing about Superman vs The EliteI never really thought about it before, but this movie is sorta the anti Man of Steel.  In Superman vs The Elite, the Last Son of Krypton gets through a battle in traditional Superman fashion…  that is, he doesn’t do what The Man of Tomorrow does at the end of Man of Steel.

5 Reasons Monthly Comic Book Sales Will NEVER Recover

comic booksThere are so many reasons that practical monthly comic book sales (I mean of the physical object) will never rebound back to their levels of yesteryear that it’s hard to know where to start. As an old-fashioned comic geek, I’ll just stick to the things the industry is doing to themselves rather than factors Marvel and DC can’t control, like the advent of video games and other home entertainment options.

Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons Cast as Alfred in upcoming Batman-Superman Movie

I’m sure everyone has heard by now that Jesse Eisenberg will play Lex Luthor and  Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in upcoming Batman-Superman movie (that is rumored to be delayed because either Ben Affleck hurt his leg or they need more time to finish special effects).  I’m sure by now everyone is over their Batfleck trauma (note:  I was never effected by this as I’m an Affleck fan, if not always a fan of the movies he appears in) and Jeremy Irons sounds like a fine choice to play Alfred, but for some reason, I am anticipating the most controversy over Eisenberg’s casting.  I think he’ll do a fine job and probably provide levity as well as menace.  Still, I didn’t see this coming – although I probably should have…

Superman vs. The Elite

superman-vs-the-eliteSince Batman:  The Animated Series debuted way back when, I’ve been a big fan of DC Comics’ animation wing.  They hit the bulls-eye almost every time.  However, the first 5 or so minutes of Superman vs. The Elite had me nervous, but slowly, the flick laid all of those fears to waste.

All Star Superman (quick movie review)

all-star-supermanThis is probably the oddest take  on Superman I’ve seen… Not from a charter standpoint, but from a story arc.  I enjoyed the flick, but it’s weird and in some ways, a little difficult to accept.  I’d say this movie is for Superman and comic book fans only, but it’s certainly worth a look for its audience. The story points are a bit telegraphed, but the action is there, which is important for this sort of movie.  I give All Star Superman a 7 out of 10.

It’s available on Netflix Instant.

Batman Mask On Honey Nut Cheerios

batman-mask-on-honeynut-cheerios

What to be a super hero, kids?  It’s this easy:  just cut a paper mask off the back of a cereal box.   (That’s Honey Nut Cheerios, to be exact.)  All that sugar and brown sugar syrup will give you the energy you need to fight crime.  As a kid, these masks always got stuck in my hair or irritated my face, so kids of all ages should proceed with caution – or buy regular Cheerios, they’ve better for you.

Wonder Woman Makes A Phone Call

wonder-woman-halloween-costume

I’m still pissed I didn’t do Halloween justice, so here’s this old post I never got to publish…

The New York Times has this blog about photography and what not, and they dropped this pic of Wonder Woman on her cell last Halloween.  For whatever reason, I find this very funny – I especially like that her phone matches her costume.

DC Comics drops zero issue [I don't get it]

image

In my ongoing effort to bring geeky information to those of you who don’t give a crap…

DC recently dropped zero issues for several of their books.  Not all of them, mind you, but several.  This baffles me.

In case you were unaware, about last year at this time, DC relaunched several of it’s titles, including stuff that had been running for seventy years, like Action Comics starring Superman.  I took this as an opportunity to stop reading DC books with the exception of Justice League because how hard could it be to write a book starring Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman?  (Not to mention Green Lantern, the Flash and [yawn] Cyborg.) 

As it turns out, it was pretty hard.  What followed was the most boring, plodding, ill conceived bunch of crap I’ve ever read.  Seriously, no one has ever written a super hero comic storyline do dull.

Anyway, I told you all of that nonsense so that I could clearly and accurately express how FUCKING BIZARRE I find it that DC Comics is issuing zero issues now.  Are they rebooting their universe annually now?  I know reboots are all the rage, but give me a break.

If this makes sense to anyone, feel free to explain it to me.

Batman has an evil brother [comics]

batman-10-thomas-wayne-jr

At least it’s not an evil twin.

See, this is why I don’t read Batman comics anymore.  I can deal with the silly costumes, ridiculous story lines and endless fake-deaths, but one thing I can not, will not tolerate is long lost brothers who are evil.  If Bruce Wayne has to have a long lost brother, why can’t the guy just be an accountant from Metropolis who wants his half of the family fortune?  I thought it was enough that he lived with a bunch of young boys he’d been collecting (Dick, Tim and Damian), but now they have to throw a brother into the mix… quite the sausage fest.  Couldn’t they give Bruce Wayne a wife?  Guess not.

Anyone, this one’s for you, Thomas Wayne, Jr.!  (Imagine me giving him the finger.)

Batman Fatigue Syndrome! [Video]

batman-fatigue-syndrome

Look how fatigued! Look!

If you’re like me (and I pray that you are NOT), then you LOVE Batman but HATE Batman comic books.  How did this happen?  The answers lie here!

There’s just too many Batman comic books for me to absorb, so I just gave up – if you can handle the wave of Bat Books, then you’re a bigger person than I am…  odds are, you’re a bigger person than I am, anyway.

TECHNICAL NOTES:

This was filmed using a Canon VIXIA HF M300 and edited in Adobe Premiere CS 5.5.   I ended up with a ton of room noise when using the camera mic, so I had my boy scrub up the audio as best he could – it’s a bad recording, so there was only so much he could do.  I did the over dub narration with a shotgun condenser mic because my SM 58 is apparently broken, but it seemed to work out fine.

There’s a quick behind the scenes video here if you want to see my pathetic attempts at lighting.

Here is a quick behind the scenes look at the upcoming video, Batman Fatigue Syndrome, which should be finished by the end of this month.

The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster video was both functional and an equipment test, and the equipment did not receive a passing grade.  Now that I’ve upgraded, the Batman Fatigue Syndrome video is also a functional equipment test, but it’s a lot more than that – it’s the beginning of a bold new era of video here at CreativeJamie.com!

Green Lantern movie review (Mixers and Movie Reviews)

This video review is an outtake from our Man of Steel episode.

stars-two

Imagine you’re in charge of choosing the basic story for the Green Lantern movie.  It’s a daunting task; after all, the first Green Lantern appeared in All-American Comics issue #16 in July of 1940 – I’m not trying to up my nerd credit (and yes, I get that the first Green Lantern from the Golden Age of comic books was quite different from the second Silver Age Green Lantern), but I just want to point out that there are decades worth of stories a screenplay could be based on – not to mention multiple Green Lanterns to choose from.  As for me, I’m a John Stewart kind of guy, but that’s not the reason why I’m going to have such a hard time saying good things about this movie.

spoiler alert
In fact, I very much enjoyed Green Lantern:  First Flight, proving that I can enjoy Hal Jordan as GL, and I assumed, right up until the end, that we’d get a very similar movie…  and I guess we did… sort of.  But rather than a straight forward movie, I felt that instead, the producers assembled every possible idea, plot thread and character available, tossed them in a hat in an attempt to pick one – and instead, picked ALL OF THEM.  Let’s see if I can weave my way through this unnecessarily complicated mess of bizarre execution and choices of what should have been a simple story about how a guy becomes an intergalactic cop, but instead is the story of a guy at odds with a girl he loves (?), at odds with a guy who is the main competition for said girl (and neither of them know about it?), but also has issues with is father’s accidental death… forget it, I give up.

Captain America’s 70th Birthday Party

captain america angus wrap

"This analogy will have to do."

It’s the 70th anniversary of the publishing of the first issue of Captain America, and Marvel Comics is partying it up!  And by ‘partying,’ I mean they’re releasing an INSANE number of one shots and mini series as well as reprints and commemorative issues of Captain America – not to mention the Captain America movie.

Imagine that instead of releasing a bunch of comics that aren’t necessary in terms of story arc pertaining to Captain America (or the Marvel Universe overall) in any shape of the imagination, Marvel Comics hosted a birthday party dinner instead, but served up the same level of quality in terms of food as they are with this March’s comics.  The main course would probably be a McDonalds Angus Wrap (looks like poop), a Dunkin Donuts cup of coffee (makes you have to poop) and for desert: dog poop (actual poop) – you’d say, “Wow, Marvel sure is serving up a big pile of shiz here,” and you’d be right.

Marvel seems to have decided it needs to do some kind of event that would coincide with a major story arc and the release of many ‘special’ issues every year, which sounds like a great idea, but in my experience, they’ve been largely unsatisfying – not to be confused with DC’s Return of Bruce Wayne “event,” which was just as uninteresting as Marvel’s events.  During last year’s Daredevil “event” entitled Shadowland, I did a good job of picking up the bear minimum of books necessary to understand what was going on.  During Marvel’s Siege event, I wasn’t so smart, and I bought a bizillion books  that were all a huge waste of my time, Vantage Point style – I’m looking at you, Siege:  Embedded.  Now this isn’t the same situation; a bunch of unrelated Captain America one-shots is not the same as a multi-limited series event, but it’s not far off – particularly when it coincides with the end of the Captain America limited series “The Korvac Saga,” “Man Out of Time” and the near end of “Hail Hydra.”  The insanity that has been the release of Captain America titles in March has been a big problem for specifically me because Cap has always been my favorite comic book character, and I have a hard time not buying everything he’s in.

 

captain america comic books from march 2011

And this isn't everything that Cap was in that was published in March 2011.

Rather than analyze each one-shot or limited series, it’d be faster to just say that any issues NOT heralding themselves as being written by Ed Brubaker pretty much suck; but, to at least do a half ass review of everything at once, I’ve group the comics into one of three categories:

The Good

  • The reprint of Captain America Comics #1
    • featuring cases 1 through 4 – classic stuff by the inventors of the character themselves, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.  It looks like the cover has been redrawn (but Cap is still punching Hitler in the face and Bucky is still saluting, so it’s a tribute, not a re-imagining) as well as maybe some help with the coloring and inking on the interior of the book.
  • Captain America 615.1
    • This picks up right where we left off in issue 614; Bucky is in prison in Russia and a new Captain America has shown up, and he’s going to get himself killed if Steve doesn’t do something about it.  It’s Ed Brubaker writing Cap; you can’t go wrong!
  • Captain America 616 (70th Anniversary Issue)
    • Love that they used that classic drawing of Cap for the Table of Contents page; why they couldn’t list the features in order, I don’t know.  Why we needed 7 individual features instead of just one big feature, I also fail to understand.
    • First Feature:  “Gulag”  Again, picking up right where we left off in 614, we get to see Bucky in Russia, dealing with prison life.  Written by Brubaker, so it’s all good.  Travis Charest’s art is great.
    • Second Feature:  “Must There Be A Captain America?”  Steve is trying to figure out what to do with himself as he explores the inner conflict concerning his desire to serve his country, but not necessarily as a symbol.   Again, written by Brubaker, so it’s all good.  Ed McGuinness’ art is not my favorite style, but well done.
    • Third Feature:  “Opaque Shadows”  Howard Chaykin writes and draws a story from Cap’s days in World War 2… it’s not bad.  It’s not great either.
    • Fourth Feature:  “Spin”  Cullen Bunn writes and Jason Latour draws a feature that reminiscent of the writing style of Mark Gruenwald on his best day.  It’s a decent little story.
    • Fifth Feature:  “Operation:  Tooth Fairy”  Mike Benson and Paul Grist combine on another ‘daring days of World War 2′ story, but this time, featuring Baron Blood, a Nazi agent I wish Marvel would leave on the cutting room floor.  LAME.  Art is awful – you can say they made a style choice,but it just looks lazy to me.
    • Sixth Feature:  “The Exhibit”  Frank Tieri writes and Paul Azaceta draws (and this guy can really draw) on a story about one of the many clones of Hitler that wander around the Marvel Universe.  This was actually well done, and I enjoyed it.
    • Seventh Feature:  “Crossfire”  Captain America and Union Jack trying to hold a village in France during World War II.  It’s a decent little story.  Great art by Pepe Larraz; writing by Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel is pretty good

The Bad

  • Ultimate Captain America #3
    • This has been going poorly from the start, and the fact that they can’t get Frank Simpson’s character design right on the cover is a indication of the crappyness within.
      • Actually, I hate to pick on this issue, because issue 3 has been the best yet, but overall, Ultimate Captain America is a failure in my eyes – they’ve got the character all wrong… until this issue, that is.  Ron Garney’s art is impressive, though, and Jason Aaron is getting better every time out, so I have hopes that this title might end up being decent.
  • Captain America:  Hail Hydra!  (#3 of 5)
    • The covers are great, and it’s a little too soon to see where they’re going with the end game, but this has been disappointing so far, and I’m not expecting it to redeem itself any time soon.  It reminds me a lot of Invaders Now! but not nearly as interesting, but equally lame.  At least I wanted to see how Invaders Now! ended, even if it was stupid, but this is just barely holding my attention.  Note to self:  limited series are usually bad.
  • Captain America and Batroc The Leaper
    • Read Pile Thoughts:  After flipping though this issue, it looks like Cap (Bucky) is in most of the issue.  The second feature is a reprint of Tales of Suspense #85, as the main feature is looking like it’s on the short side.
      • I’ve read this now, and this was ok… but again, not enough Captain America, but I guess I should count myself lucky that Cap was in the issue at all.
  • Captain America:  Man Out of Time (#5 of 5)
    • Read Pile Thoughts:  Lame cover art.  However, this series has been decent.  It makes you wonder if any of this story line is going to end up in the second solo Captain America movie…
      • I’ve read this now, and this was actually a semi-satisfying mini series, despite the rush at the end – I think if this was a sixth issue, they could have developed the Kang story and maybe done something special here, but it didn’t happen.

The Downright Insultingly Hideous Fug-Ugly

  • Captain America and Crossbones (one shot)
    • Uhm, guys, you forgot to put Captain America in this issue.  Neither Steve Rogers nor Bucky Barnes makes any appearance of any kind in this issue.  I don’t know what else to say, except that I’d like my money back.  When I buy a comic that says “Captain America” on the front, I expect to get Captain America, damn it!
  • Captain America and the Falcon (one shot)
    • Again, for the most part, you folks at Marvel forgot to put Captain America in this issue.  WTF.  Just WTF.
  • Captain America and the First Thirteen (one shot)
    • It’s poorly written and the art is… I don’t know, done in water colors, maybe… it just doesn’t work.
  • Captain America:  The Korvac Saga  #4 of 4
    • I don’t think they knew where they were going when they started this, because issue 1 and 2 were OK, but 3 and 4 were a waste of my time and money.
  • Captain America and the Secret Avengers (one shot)
    • Read Pile Thoughts:  I just flipped through it and it looks like Cap is only in the first two or three pages, if that.  Again, WTF.
    • Now that I’ve read this issue… holy hell, is it bad.  The only thing worse than the story telling is the art.  It’s that bad; it’s so bad I can’t even be bothered to break out the nuances of awfulness – anyone and everyone involved in this plot to extort $3.99 from me should be ashamed of themselves.  In other words, it’s bad.  I think A Comic Book Blog put it best:  “If you’re a Cap or Black Widow completist, you’ll likely buy this anyway, but if you’re looking for a nice little book starring two fairly fun characters to read, then you might like this book.  However, don’t expect this to become a series or move mountains.”  That’s exactly who I am:  a Captain America completist, and I let Marvel exploit that sad sickness when I purchased the Captain America and the Secret Avengers one shot.  In a way, I’ll never be whole again…  (Look, this issue was so bad that it’s worth of this level of sarcasm!)

On the read pile:

note: as I read issues, I moved them from this category and moved them up to their spots above – hence, this post has been updated several times.

  • Secret Avengers #11
    • On the cover, Steve Rogers is wearing the Captain America uniform…  but that doesn’t mean anything like that happens on the insides.  Comics rarely have stories that are indicative of what’s on the cover these days.
      • It’s a flash back issue, and it’s a good one – but no, what happens on the cover never happens in the book.  Shocking.

Under normal circumstances, I would conclude this post with a rant about how I can’t take it anymore, that there is such a thing as too much of my favorite character, but most likely, March is an aberration, and I’m never going to deal with a 13 issue month of Captain America again  – and I didn’t even count The Avengers because Steve Rogers isn’t in that book at all; Bucky is still Captain America there, for now.  I do think this is a ridiculous onslaught; a 70th anniversary celebration turned into an awful marketing scheme to sell more comic books, and I fell for it.  But you won’t find any parting swears or vows to stop buying Cap books – first, because I love Cap and I can’t, and secondly, it’s not like this is Batman, and Marvel does this every single month! I’ll let Marvel slide for now, but I’ve got my eye on ya’ll, not to mention this year’s big “event,” Fear Itself, which will have Cap up front and center.  (NOTE:  I also didn’t count the Fear Itself Prologue, which also prominently featured Captain America, also came out this past March.)

Batman: The Long Halloween review

 

Batman-the-long-halloween

Why'd they put Two-Face on the cover? Way to spoil the ending, guys.

Batman:  The Long Halloween is a graphic novel (trade paperback?) that compiles the thirteen issue limited series of the same name.  Writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale worked in the continuity of Batman:  Year One, created by writer Frank Miller, illustrated by David Mazzucchelli, colorist Richmond Lewis, and lettering by Todd Klein, although Long Halloween is superior to Year One in just about every way possible, although I would say Sale and Mazzucchelli’s artistic skills are fairly even.  It’s not enough to say that Long Halloween is better than Year One; I have to make it clear that Long Halloween is probably the best comic book limited series I’ve ever read, and even that’s not giving it enough credit, because these days, Marvel and DC push out zillions of awful limited series every year, to the point where I had to stop buying them all together – see Batman Odyssey and Siege for examples of this.

If you read Batman:  Year One, then you should be right at home with Long Halloween, but I wouldn’t call Year One required reading by any stretch of the imagination.  In fact, I don’t have much to say about Year One – at least, I don’t have much praise to heap on it.  I assumed it was going to be an origin story, but it really isn’t; essentially, we just see a young Batman who makes a lot more mistakes then we’re accustomed to seeing Batman make.  Details and character development are not delivered to the audience in abundance, and ultimately, the book damaged my opinion of Frank Miller.  Essentially, Long Halloween grabs the undeveloped mob characters from Year One and develops them.  (If you’re interested in an origin story for Batman, you may as well go watch Batman Begins again – which borrows from Year One, but fleshes out the characters (especially Batman) in ways that Year One never even attempted.

Perhaps the greatest contributor to Long Halloween was Mark Waid, who did wonders for Captain America after Mark Gruenwald’s 10 year reign of terror ended with his untimely death.  Waid suggested that Loeb work with Two-Face’s origin, and the rest, as they say, is history. There is a ton of Long Halloween in The Dark Knight’s script, and frankly, The Dark Knight is one of the greatest action movies of all time.  But Long Halloween is more than a template for The Dark Knight; it’s very much its own story.

Although Long Halloween is said to focus on a younger Batman than we’re accustomed to seeing, it’s not really true, at least not in my mind.  Batman is presented as the character we all know and love, it’s just that certain events haven’t come to pass yet in the Batman time line:  Gordon is still Captain Gordon, not commissioner yet; Two-Face is still Harvey Dent, which is a major plot thread in the story; Dick Grayson is presumably on tour with his parents and the circus as he doesn’t make an appearance…  Yet, nearly every major Batman villain is already established and presented in the story without explanation:  the Joker, Poison Ivy, The Riddler, The Mad Hatter, The Scarecrow, Calendar Man and Catwoman are all in Long Halloween.  I don’t have any problem with this, and the use of the Rogue Gallery is brilliantly done here, but I wouldn’t say we’re anywhere near the beginning of the Batman story.

batman long halloween bruce wayne

"I believe in America - Gotham City. I meant Gotham."

One curious bit about Long Halloween is it’s over abundance of homages to The Godfather.  The very first page of Long Halloween is Bruce Wayne saying, “I believe in Gotham City,” to Carmine Falcone, just as we see Bonasera say to Vito in the first moments of The Godfather.  Falcone wears a similar suit to Vito Corleone, and his nephew is getting married, just like the first scene in The Godfather, except it’s Vito’s daughter who is getting married there.  Pages later, after a shootout in Flacone’s office, he says, “In my home.  On my nephew’s wedding day,” similar to Micheal’s reaction to his attempted assassination in Godfather II:  “In my home!  In my bedroom, where my wife sleeps!  Where my children come to play with their toys.”  The homages don’t really end there, but then, when you’re writing about gangsters and you choose to make allusions to the Godfather…  it’s kind of a joke, but its well done, but it might also be viewed as cheating character development; you just immediately associate these characters with the characters from The Godfather…  but it’s original enough to keep you interested.

For the most part, Long Halloween is a story about Batman, Gordon and Dent teaming up together to take down the mob, so you can easily see how the The Dark Knight they borrowed this angle.  The movie adapts a scene where Dent and Batman burn down a warehouse full of mob money as opposed to The Joker doing so in the film.  There are scenes up on the roof top with Batman, Gordon and Dent talking and planning (similar scenes appear in The Dark Knight), but their investigations and arrests provide little in the way of results.  A killer emerges who targets the mob, always committing it’s murder on a Holiday (and the press so names the killer ‘Holiday’) and leaving both the murder weapon and a token that represents the particular holiday, like the jack-o-lantern that is left with the first victim, who was killed on Halloween.  Wash, rinse, and repeat.

Yeah, the story is a bit repetitive, yet still engaging.  I’d say it was a mistake to force 13 issues (I did say force… why do 12 issues when you can do 13?  The Poison Ivy plot thread is as silly as the Scarecrow thread is useless) and given that I read the trade paper back (Graphic novel?  Can I use those terms interchangeably or what?) rather than the individual issues as they came out once a month, I had to deal with quite a bit of reintroduction that could have been easily edited out, but wasn’t.  I think I read that “Carmine Falcone is Gotham City’s

batman-longhalloween-gangster

The tux, and the moment, is very Godfather.

Untouchable Crime Lord” about 20 times.  Although they’ve packaged all 13 issues together, no effort was made to have it move seamlessly like a novel with chapters, and I guess that was intentional – they dropped in some cover art before each issue started, and I was glad to have it, but they could have stuck them all in the back and edited it together at least a little bit.

While I wouldn’t say that Batman:  The Long Halloween is perfect, there is no doubt that it’s great.  I loved it, and I look forward to reading it again – I guarantee you that by the end, you both WILL and WILL NOT have correctly identified the Holiday killer.  Riddle that out!  If you like The Godfather and Batman, Long Halloween is a no brainer, and even if you only like one of the two, I sitll recommend you pick it up.

NOTE: The girlfriend that gets you a graphic novel (trade paperback?) for Valentine’s Day really understands and accepts you!
