Huh? Book IV?
Yup! I suddenly decided that where we were was a good place to end issue 3. The events that were Issue 3 “Shadows of Humanity” are now stretched over two issues.
And this page WILL BE IN COLOR!! Just some hours after the B&W version. So come back later to see the bloody Masters and Benton.
ok now THAT is a cool page. bet it will be double awesome in color.
Masters and Benton, that sounds like a very traditional store.
“Master & Benton.
Fine Superheroes Clothing Company.
Established since 1940.
Whatever your powers are, you will look impressive, because this is our job.”
Deep…but it implies that it will be hard to take “the narcissist in crimson” down a peg or two. 🙁
I prefer Brooklyn Superhero Supply for all my high quality crimefighting merchandise…
I get all my my capes and spandex needs covered by Acme…
Spandex was outlawed in 1967 when superhero fertility hit rock bottom… 😀
“No Capes!”, said Edna clothier to Heros. 😉
Actually I was going to bring that issue up at some time when Archie and Jack are training the new Crusader, but then I saw The Incredibles. 😀
I was wondering if you where going to bring up the issue =)
It’s also mentioned in Watchmen, don’t remember the exact details, but I think it was about a guy getting his cape caught in the revolving doors of a bank as he was chasing a robber, and the hero chokes to death… Liked the Incredibles’s caught in the turbine better though =)
it was Dollar bill, a memember of the Minutemen, the precursor to the watchmen, and he got shot because it was caught in the door.. least in the movie version, not sure of the comic one.
Yeah. The problem is how do you mix the coolness of the cape (think Batman) and the shear unpracticality of it in reality.
I remember as a kid wearing a cape and wondering how the heck they do it. 😯
I was disapointed to learn that the first Batman movie used something like 6 different capes to get different effects. It kinda stole some of the magic.
well for the cape to not choke you that one is easy. Like batman.. He uses hooks on the collar bone to attach his cape not wrap around his neck. Now there are still a whole list of issues that capes cause but choking shouldnt be one of them.
I gave a quick review to your overall comic here, based on how much I enjoyed it…it’s good to see more good superhero comics online, free of the restraints that tend to plague the print versions.
Thanks for the great review. Let’s hope Brubaker is listening. 😉
Hmm… no emails yet… 😀
I was meaning to ask: what sort of page code are you using here? I’m working on setting up an online comic (I like to think it’s more of a graphic novel, but that’s just a pretentious comic, right?) and I’m using Drupal with some modifications, but yours seems to be pretty clean. It is a prebuilt module or did you make it?
I’m using Comicpress
It’s free and VERY handy once you get used to it. Very little coding is needed. It’s mostly built from widgets that you fill with whatever you want.
I’ll take a look at it if Drupal doesn’t swing as far as I’d like it to. Many thanks.
Erik, the hero in Watchmen was Dollar Bill, a guy hired to protect a bank chain. If I remember correctly, he got caught in the revolving door and before he could free himself the bad guy shot him a few times.
Well, there you go.
I bet he was thinking that the cape wasn’t so swell after all. 😀
Yeah, just a random hoodlum robbing a bank too, not even a real villain with a name and speaking part. 😀
Meh, anyone with real experience of a cape knows that it’s only as fixed as the strength of the fastening. Give it a breakaway fastening and if it gets caught in something, you just lose the cape, no big deal. It’s like the clip-on ties cops wear so they don’t get choked.
