One of my favorite things ever is to get texts from people asking me questions about comic books and television. It happens all the time and, honestly, it couldn’t make me happier. Keep them coming!

Today has been a great day so far, but now I am home by myself and I can’t help but feel alone. Do any of you ever feel alone? For me being alone is one of my biggest fears, and that’s why I’m usually hanging out with someone 24/7. Being alone depresses me greatly. This is probably why I’ve seen so many Movies/TV Shows, they provide the escape I need to not think about the fact that I’m by myself (plus I have a genuine love for them). Just sitting in silence by myself, to me, is the worse thing. I am uncomfortable like that. I even get very panicked and scared. Why?

These are just ramblings of a bored person.

With all the hullabaloo surrounding Marvel seeking out a director for the DOCTOR STRANGE movie, I went ahead and made a poster for them. Don’t worry about paying me, Marvel. You can have this one gratis.

Of course, that would mean you have to cast Paul F. Tompkins as Doctor Strange, but isn’t that what we all want, anyway?

Pleeeeaaaaasssseeee stop being so frakking hypocritical! YES those things you pointed out are true. But there is one GLARING inconsistency in your argument kind of ruins it. Oh wait… there are TWO. Please. Just stop.

I wonder what this is directed at. I already love it though. 

Sorry. Needed to get it out. And I realize I am probably very hypocritical as well… but yeah… at the moment I don’t really care.

It’s all good!

I might take up spray painting again. Not like street tagging, I’m too scarred of Johnny Law to do that, but like paint on canvas with my own stencils that I have created. Now I just need something to stencil

I really wish that Kitty Pryde was the main focus of the Days of Future Past movie, it would have been so great to see what a vibrant and essential character she is. It would have also been great to see Ellen Page really rock that role like I know she could (I’m a big Ellen Page fan). I feel like it would have been a much better story that way. I still don’t understand why every movie has to be Wolverine centric, give another member of the X-Men a chance to shine, there are so many great characters to choose from. I will say that this was one of the more solid X-Men movies despite it’s character inaccuracies (there were plenty). I just feel like we as an audience may have gotten cheated out of an amazing Kitty Pryde movie.

I feel like those Fantastic Four movies may have ruined the Fantastic Four for a lot of people, when they used to be the go-to title for Marvel. Just another thing the movies affected. Let’s get some respect for the Fantastic Four, I mean Reed Richards discovered how to successfully time travel and interstellar travel.

I really can’t wait to see this short finished. I feel like it could be something very cool that I will have made

If you really want to know about who comic book characters are or what a particular comic book actually stands for please do not rely on anything that you see in a Comic Book movie. What you CAN do is actually pick up a comic book and give it a read. Relying on movies to show you who these characters are is the worst thing you can do, a lot of the things you see and take for fact are wrong.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Kitty Pryde does not have Telepathic Mind powers, in fact Kitty Pryde is the one who gets sent back in time in the comics.  

The Dark Knight RIses

Batman would never quit for 8 years because someone died, that’s the whole reason he started. in fact he’d probably go really dark for a while and break more spines than usual.

I know comics are intimidating, or you think they’re nerdy and will make you a loser, but honestly it looks so much more dumb to be into the movie and not into the comics. So please, any of you, ask me where to start and I’ll point you to a really cool story and you can see these movies for what they really are, shadows of something truly great.
