The Learning Curve: Top comic book movie rules

Just thinking about this yesterday at home but since there are rules to horror movies, like never go investigate a weird noise by yourself, there should also be some for comic book movies.  These are only for the good guys right now.  I can think of some that come to mind but my first couple:

  1.  Wait for the bad guy to monologue, then beat them down.  It happens alot in the comic book movies and all you have to do if you’re a good guy is wait on them to start revealing their “master plan” then crush them afterwards.  Doesn’t fail that much.
  2. STOP TELLING EVERYONE YOUR SECRET IDENTITY.  If you’ve chosen to hide your identity to keep love ones safe, then fine. But to just go all out and tell people who you are for no reason, like to civilians (looking at you, Arrow and Flash), then what was the point? If they figure it out, that’s one thing (unless you deny that fact) but what I’ve seen over the past few years has been crazy.  There are some people you can trust, I get it but please show some discretion.

These are the ones that I wanted to publish that first came to mind, so drop some more on the comment section if you thing of any more to add. Thanks.

Be blessed.

Pisces Concepts trailer is ready!

Well, it’s been a busy week but not only have I finished page 2 of Shield of Justice volume 3, but I also just finished a new trailer for the webcomics blog!  I prepared this just in case I get chosen to present at a panel in September at the Cincinnati Comic Expo.  I’ve been to a panel before to promote my work and had a blast, so hopefully, I can do it again.  I was going to wait on posting this until September, but why not post it now?

Be blessed.

The Learning Curve: Is Mad Dog Arrow’s version of Red Hood?

This thought popped into my head a few days ago after watching Arrow and seeing how Mad Dog operates. He reminded me of Red Hood in his attitude towards justice, although most of the characters on the show seem to want to kill criminals every now and then.  Now the backstory on him is different (and very good, too), but it’s hard for me to see that he’s not in some way CW’s version of Mad Dog.  There are other people that mirror the DC characters, like Arsenal and Nightwing.

I may be late to this thought from others, but Mad Dog really does remind me of Red Hood.  Does anyone else agree or have your own opinions, share them here.

Be blessed.
