"Super heroes need to smile more. Cheer up, guys, you’re saving the world. I mean seriously, why wouldn’t Tony Stark custom weld a fixed smile into the Iron Man helmet? I almost always draw super heroes smiling and floating around clouds. I always think, “Maybe I should just draw a serious face this time,” but then, “Nah.” I guess it’s just my Silver Age fixation, but I liked it when most of the super heroes were pals and fought crime more frequently than each other."
Movies of Earth
#a princess of mars
These are the terrible movies you went to see in theaters:
Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon
Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
All of the Twilight movies
These are the awesome movies you probably didn’t see in theaters:
The Iron Giant
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
It’s more profitable to make terrible films that you’ll go see in the theater than to take any risks and try to make a good movie with a single original thought and a competent filmmaker with storytelling chops beyond casting famous people and dropping in some fart jokes.
Now go see John Carter [OF MARS] while you still have a chance, like someone who wants to see more awesome movies and fewer that make you doubt the intrinsic worth of your own species.

I don’t like most writing, drawing, coloring, or lettering, and I’m sure as hell not shopping in a store that doesn’t let me flip through books to see if they look interesting. I can’t invest in crossovers anymore. I don’t even care about characters, even though I think nearly every mainstream comics character could be interesting. I follow creators because I’m spoiled.
Because I read Tom Strong, Promethea, Planetary, The Authority, Hellboy, B.P.R.D., Robin: Year One, and All-Star and Superman, I know comics can be absolutely incredible. When my favorite creators team up, that’s when I get interested. Were I President of Comics, I’d make it so every comic was amazing. Somehow. So vote for me.
What meets my impossibly high standards? Here you go…
