Way back in 2012, we made a Deadpool fan film and we’re back at it again because… my boy still has that Deadpool costume. I understand that the below image might not be the most helpful teaser ever, so I’ll go on to say that this short will also feature Captain America and will be somewhere in between Blossom and The Odd Couple. If you don’t see the synergy between those two shows, then – wait, I don’t see the synergy between Blossom and The Odd Couple, so this video is going to be a bit on the odd side. But then, that’s kinda what we do around here anyway.
We’re about halfway done with filming and I’ve sorta started the editing, so this shouldn’t take too long, but I don’t want to give a debut date and be wrong, so let’s just say ‘coming soon’ and leave it at that.
Some folks might want to be Captain America, but Dr. Girlfriend realized I want to smell like him.
She’s not wrong.
I’m sure you’re wondering: What does a patriot smell like? Read the rest of this entry
Obviously, 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…
Welcome back to A Fly On The Wall, a feature that imagines what it would be like to hear conversations that may or may not have ever actually occurred. This time, we’ll use our fly power to listen in on a development meeting at Marvel Comics for the 2014 Event, Original Sin.
OK, everybody – it’s a new day, it’s a new year, Event time is almost upon us. What ideas do we have?
I’ve decided that I need to quickly address this issue: you see, I’ve heard from a lot of people that they didn’t like X-Men Origins: Wolverine because the story differed from the comic book, but I can’t accept that. I thought the flick was a good time, but critics didn’t agree. If you glance through its Rotten Tomatoes page, you’ll see quotes like, “I haven’t been this disappointed by a film since the new Indiana Jones,” or “You’re going to be really underwhelmed” or such thought-provoking blurbs as “I was definitely disappointed.” Anyway, critics and dorks agreed, Origins sucked – well, I didn’t agree, but there you go. For me, Origins wasn’t anything spectacular (well, the helicopter scene was spectacular), but it was a good time at the movies and I simply love Jackman as Wolverine. He’s perfect in the role and he has to share even less of the screen this time around, which may be why fans and critics alike seem to prefer The Wolverine to Origins. But in my view, they’re both fine, so if you hated Origins, this might not be the review for you. Read the rest of this entry
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.
Don’t know who Deadpool is? This video isn’t going to help much!
Did you watch the video yet? No? OK, go watch the video, then read on.
Done? OK, here’s the deal:
The video is now live – click here!
After you stuff yourself on Thanksgiving, wake up ready to get your video on here at CreativeJamie.com as we debut our Deadpool fan film, Deadpool goes to the Therapist. A good time will be had by all!
Unless you don’t know anything about Deadpool… then this might not make any sense. I’ll try address that problem!
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.
For those of you with lives, please be advised that Marvel Comics are divided into two universes: regular and ULTIMATE! (Kinda wish ‘ultimate’ was ‘extreme’ so they could introduce new characters: two teenage twins, one called ‘ Mountain’ and the other called ‘Dew.’) The Ultimate universe is… well, for lack of a better word, dumb. To be fair, it started off fun: a re-imagining of the Avengers in a modern setting. Then, slowly but surely, it got stupider and stupider, like me as I drink my brain cells to death and keep giving myself concussions from face palming over stuff like this, the most recent chapter in in a novel of blunders.

While comic books as an industry and product seem to be dieing a slow death, that doesn’t keep the companies that make them from desperate cash grabs.
A comic book annual is a yearly special that is larger in size (more pages) than a regular issue and generally tells one grand, inclusive story. Daredevil Annual #1 seems to make an attempt at both telling an inclusive story but also linking this issue to other annuals -specifically, those of Wolverine and the Fantastic Four. Comic book crossovers are the oldest trick in the book when it comes to fooling readers into buying extra books, but when they do an annual crossover, it’s especially rude for three reasons:
1. The story has nothing to do with current plot lines
2. The story isn’t especially interesting
3. Annuals are currently priced at $4.99
Check out the last page:
No. No, fuck you guys -I’m not buying 2 more books to learn how the rest of your crappy story goes. You can suck it.
And was there really a need to restart the numbering of Daredevil’s annuals?
