I'm in the middle of a really tough week thanks to the Thanksgiving printing schedule for the paper and while I should dash off some pithy local political comment, I just don't have it in me.
But I can be a fanboy. so go here watch the video, http://video.scifi.com/player/?id=841281, and come back.
Don't worry I'll wait.
Okay, is it just me or does Frank Miller's concept of The Spirit have far less to do with Will Eisner than with "Sin City?" Hey I love the movie "Sin City," but I also love the beauty of Eisner's comic book creation – great art, great storylines.
So why screw with it? Because Eisner is dead and Miller has Hollywood buzz.
I don't know Frank Miller. I hear he is a nice guy and I think he's very talented. But it takes a healthy ego to take someone else's work and make it your own.
Frankly I wish someone had the balls to produce a 2-d cel animated version of the property preserving the look of the original art.
Ahhh, a fanboy can dream, can't he?
