There was a time when I really envied people who were able to make it to the San Diego Comic-Con.
I won’t go into a long rant here, but let’s just say I’m more interested in the writers and artists and actual comics, more than the TV, movie and games industries that grew up and over them. Besides, with the ever-increasing crowds and dwindling chance of getting a ticket to the show, it quite frankly sounds like more trouble than it’s worth.
And then there’s this, and I’m reminded of what a great community the comic book world can be when it remembers to just get over itself. I don’t want to give anything away for anyone who hasn’t seen this yet (I just saw it late Monday night — thanks, Jen!), but you can find all the details about the production of what has to be one of the most kick-ass “fan films” ever at this link. I’m also ready to get really effusive about the lead actor in this short (and its inspiration), so let me know what you think in the comments.
OK, that’s about all I can say without actually saying anything, so enjoy “Dirty Laundry”!
