Spider-Man 2 _____________________________________July 1st, 2004 - thursday___



July 1st , 2004 - thursday

Just saw the new Spidey movie. I enjoyed the heck out of it! While sitting there smiling like a little kid, I felt most giddy watching the signature Sam Raimi moments- the over-the-top action, the cheesy close-ups of the screaming women, the melodrama cranked up to level 10, and seeing how they melded so well with the world of these characters. Big, fun, comic book action films are the kinds of projects that Mr. Raimi was born to direct. What didn't work at all in The Gift works so well here. Like with the Evil Dead films, the Spider-Man 2 cast and crew had their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks, and played for an audience ready to have a good time. Great stuff.

This weekend, I will be at Comickaze in San Diego to promote Flight and Daisy Kutter on Free Comic Book Day. Of course, the books aren't out yet, but they'll be handing out free ashcan previews from some of the work from both projects at the store. Be sure to come by and say hello!

Oops. I just realized I forgot to post JP Ahonen's Daisy pic (and it's one of my favorites!). You can view it over at his site for now and I'll be posting it in the gallery soon. Had my head buried in so much work lately, it's been hard to keep up with people things... :)

And here's a new Daisy Kutter review...
