I probably should have made this a little more stand alone instead of a direct reference to Monday's strip.

In other news, I see Green Lantern is getting pounded by the critics - even the comic media is ripping it apart. That's a pity, because it's not nearly as bad a film as they make it out to be. I stand by my statements, It's a great GL movie, it's a good comic film, but not a good blockbuster. IT think the biggest disappointment is that for a 300 Million dollar film, we don't realy see that money on the screen. The CGI is subpar in places, the sets aren't that extraordinary, and there's actually too much green screen. It ends up feeling like a direct to video movie than a summer night out at the theatre. Still, I can't elieve that writer Mark Millar called this "The worst superhero film ever". Did he miss Batman and Robin? Perhaps he wasn't aware of the Nick fury movie starring David Hasselhoff? Really? Green Lantern is worse thant the 1990 Captian America???

Hmmmm. I think there's a comic strip in all of this......We'll see what happens Monday.

I'm just going to have to see this Green Lantern movie. People who aren't so versed in the comics seem to think it's fine. I just wish DC would try more often like this, give other characters a chance. Where are all the Chris Nolans?

Okay! I've caught up on your comics, and I love you. I too prefer DC, but man, that Watchmen movie was disappointing. Obviously some things have to change when you're going from comic to film, but you can't change the entire MESSAGE.

Anyway, keep making fun of Alan Moore. ^_^

I'm a little soured on DC after the Action Comics 900 thing; but that's really because I have a huge emotional investment in Superman and the citizenship thing really made me feel like I'd just been punched in the face. Still, that doesn't make me like Marvel more. As much Spider-Man as I read I can't feel the same affection for Peter Parker as I do Clark Kent.
I want to see more DC movies too, though it seems like they are doing in film what they were doing in comics in the 80's. Back then they came up with all of these invoative titles like Watchmen, Hellblazer, Skreemer, Sonic Disrupters, Angel Love and a lot of other stuff that was really pushing the boundries and definitions of what a comic book was. Not to mention things like Dark Knight, the Shadow, Blackhawk and Swamp Thing that redifined how we see these characters. It seems like DC's picking from these triumphs of it's glory days and only willing to turn these kind of things into movies, instead of fresh takes on it's more recognizable characters like Marvel's doing. I'd bet that most people don't realize that half of the movies that DC puts out are comic book properties.
