Yesterday I got my copies of “Spire City Noir” no. 1 and the coloring book version of the same. The colors came out beautifully, so I’ll put them up for sale on Indyplanet and format them Drivethrucomics and Comixology. I’ll also order some copies for my collaborators, while I’m at it. I’m really proud of this book.
I just watched “Logan” in the theater. I don’t want to give away spoilers, but this is a very powerful movie, beautifully written and acted. It was not only one of the best superhero movies ever made, but simply one of the best movies in many years. Hugh Jackman is going to be a nearly impossible act to follow.
I’ve also watched more than half of Marvel’s Iron Fist on Netflix. While the two seasons of Daredevil were instant classics, Jessica Jone quite good, and Luke Cage flawed but ultimately good to watch, then we get Iron Fist. Some of the episodes are quite good. Colleen Wing, a real non-character in the comics, is outstanding in this version. The guy who plays Danny Rand/Iron Fist is unrelateable, uncomfortably naive, and seems like anything but a great warrior. Plus, his curly mop top hair bugs me. The pace is slow, the villains (Harold Meachum, Ward Meachum, Madame Gau) are much more interesting to me than Danny Rand himself. The special effects on the Iron Fist itself are underwhelming too.
