Another week down, and another comic book contest has come to a close. The winner of this past contest is SamTheAwesome, and she’ll be receiving the stack of twenty comic books very shortly. That clears the way for a new week and a new contest. Here are the details:
Reply to this post and tell me which comic book movie was your favorite and which was your least favorite, and why. You’ll be entered in a drawing to win a random stack of 20 of these comics. Be sure to use your real e-mail address when you reply, or I won’t be able to contact you if you win. And as a bonus this week, we’ll be reading some of the entries on an upcoming episode of the Fandomania podcast, so you might hear your response discussed on the show!
Keep in mind that these are not minty-mint collector grade comics. They’re the actual copies we read here when we write up reviews, so they ain’t perfect. They’re great for reading, though, so why not give it a shot and get these things off my hands?
This contest will end next Monday, September 22, at 12:00am Eastern time. At that time I’ll draw a winner, and then I’ll start up another one of these later in the day. You can expect comic giveaways like this each week until I get rid of this mountain of issues.
My favorite comic book movie, so far, has got to be the Director’s Cut of HELLBOY. Being a huge fan of Mike Mignola and his creation, I liked the original cut – but completely loved the Director’s Cut. It just adds so much more story and depth…(Same goes for Daredevil, while a “decent” movie in it’s theatrical cut – the Director’s Cut was by far so much better…)
Honorable mentions must go out to The Dark Knight, Batman Returns, The Punisher (Thomas Jane version – not the Dolph movie), and Iron Man.
As for my least favorite comic book movie, I would have to say it’s a toss-up between Joel Shumacher’s Batman and Robin, (God, why did they cast Arnold and not someone who could actually act…? Though that was only one of several dozen reasons why this movie sucked.), and the direct to video Captain America. C’mon, The Red Skull? Italian? Why even have the movie start in World War 2? Why not have Captain America take place in the mean streets of Little Italy in New York and have some great dance scenes – and singing… That would be the only thing that made the movie suck more. Cap’s costume looked okay at first glance – but why did they have fake ears on the side of his head? Did they not notice how wierd it looked when Steve Rogers had his make pulled back…? With it’s ears still there…?!?
I thought the Iron Man movie rocked! The suit was really cool and the bad guy they had him fight was pretty cool looking too.
I didn’t like the first Hulk movie. I thought it was kinda stupid. They made it be too much like a cartoon show…
I’d have to say my favorite is the original Superman: The Movie. Talk about a movie that just inspires you to want to be a superhero. They got everything right in this movie, all the characters were perfect, especially Clark Kent. It even had a sense of humor unlike a certain “sequal” that came out recently.
My least favorite is X3, mainly because they got everything wrong, and I’m not talking about the comics, but from the past movies. This movie was so cheesy, and so boring and the tone was so off, that when it came to the final battle it looked like something out of a TV show. Also, tank girl is the worst comic movie ever, but still not my least favorite.
