To keep you from realizing how bored some of you are of these mediocre Wolverine based movies this film will be entitled: 'Logan'. Meanwhile a host of super heroes (X-Men included) are just dying to have their moment in the solo movie sun. Cyclops, eclipsed and ruined by fanboy admiration of the loner super hero (anti-hero actually) Wolverine, would be a great idea for a solo film. Nothing's cooler than shooting rays out of your eyes, I think. No wonder Jack Kirby and Stan Lee made him the leader of the X-Men. Unfortunately their cool wasn't cool to others and Wolverine became the new 'leader' of the X-Men. Whether this has been admitted in comic book form or not (I don't read the comic book since the artwork started looking like fan art; back in the early 80's is when this started -that's how long it's been!). May have gotten better since Alex Ross began to school the fans in charge of the comic book companies nowadays that realism is way cooler than bad drawings. I'll check it out if I'm within a mile or two of a comic book shop. Won't buy anything because I'd rather eat than read now that I'm older.
Interesting fact: I attended the same art school as Alex Ross and left 1 year before he came. He went on to fame and glory while I took the harder route, working in the unforgiving rock quarries of the advertising industry and then busting my ass in the dreaded animation work camps of Hollywood (hahaha --yep, it was that bad).
Oh yeah -the stories in these movies and others are typically mediocre or outright bad because the goddamn directors think they are writers too and so they sit down and write this stereotypical, unoriginal cocky shit and then think they just shitted out gold blocks. How about having a little fucking humility and stick to what you know and love best (directing) instead of making the mistake in thinking that your success in one field (directing) will automatically translate into success in another one (writing) and give some highly talented writer (young or old) that went to school for it a chance to shine??
I'm George Alan Booker and I created the character known as Zombie Racer and then everyone and his mother started turning it into shitty video games and smelly gym shoes on the Internet so now it's just all over the damn place. Anyway I used to work in comic books, animation, and TV advertising storyboarding. Now I'm returning to comics again with the start of this website. Check the site ledger on the Home Page (Graphic Storytelling.com and Gallery subheadings listings) for samples of my artwork.
