There have been hundreds of different comic book movies made over the years, but few movies pale in comparison to the depth and majesty of the original comics. The most successful comic books made into movies are those that draw little from the comic books other than the actual characters. Having a director with a love for the comic books and vision helps a lot too. For example, the first two X-Men movies are regarded as being quite excellent, with the directing of Bryan Singer. However, when Singer departed to make Superman Returns, the X-Men movie franchise turned bad with all haste and left those wearing X-men t shirts in dismay. Other good comic book movies made in recent years include Spiderman 2, Hellboy: The Golden Army, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Iron Man. Three of these films were released in 2008, in a year that would see a comic book film, The Dark Knight, win the first Oscar for acting, a nod to the deceased Heath Ledger.
Despite a smattering of successful comic book films, the comic books themselves are still what fans turn to for the purest and most enjoyable renditions of the superheroes and characters that made the series.
So when I started the site I said I wasn’t going to upload any shirts without doing complete descriptions. However, that is starting to mean that shirts are piling up and can’t be viewed by the fans, like this comic athletic shirt from the X-Men t-shirts section, and can go a couple weeks before I get to it. So from now on I will put them up as soon as I can and put the word “pending” on the description. That will allow me to spend the time I think they deserve and get the quality of descriptions I have now come to expect from myself. I pr0mise to get them done as quickly as possible.
The other thing I am doing is breaking away from t shirts. I recently ordered some amazing Star Trek, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman coffee mugs, lunchboxes, and assorted knick knacks. Once I figure out the shipping I will have them up soon.
Busy day of running around with not a lot to show for it. I can’t seem to find those stupid wire cube devices. I found some online but the shipping is crippling. I’ll keep looking I guess. I need to get some before our next event, which is looking like KublaCon, the biggest gaming event in Northern California May 28th-31st. That gives me about five weeks to square it away. I think it’ll be good.
