ICYMI: This Hawkeye Fan Film is Super Charming

Many of you may know Hawkeye from Jeremy Renner’s portrayal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, comic book fans may know a very beloved and famous run of Matt Fraction and David Aja on the Archer part-time Avenger. He’s famously called HawkGuy because Fraction’s son couldn’t correctly pronounce Hawkeye, and it just happened to personify this beloved run on the character.

This comic was about Hawkeye just being a regular guy and not so much about his big time as an Avenger. How he’s a street level hero sometimes, but also just a regular dude with a bunch of regular dude problems. That’s enough prefacing right? Yeah, let’s check out the Hawkeye Fan Film.

I really love that they really capture the essence of the characters and the way they were written in this run by Fraction. The filmmakers also do a great job of capturing the style a comic book like this would be read, because they make very conscious choices about the way David Aja made his panels and frames and did similar edits and camera shots. Overall, I just really appreciate the work done by One Riot Ranger Productions. All that being said it’s still a fan film, so if you don’t like some rough production here and there, don’t watch, but I’d say it’s a good bit of work and HawkGuy fans will definitely enjoy.

Opinion: My Vendetta against Weekly Comics

Rage. Disappoint. Dumbfoundedness. Let down. These are but a few emotions that seeped from the depths of my soul after reading DC Comic’s big weekly event from 2014-2015, Future’s End. Although a bit behind, I decided to wait for the event to settle and read the event in a full weekend sitting. Here’s my one major question…

WHY DID FUTURE’S END HAVE TO HAPPEN?!?

A few major goals coming out of the event were:

  • Explore the past, the present, and the future’s of the current status quo of comics.
  • Refresh long-standing characters and give them life beyond the weekly series.
  • Introduce fan-favorite Terry McGuinness (Batman Beyond) into the main universe (New52)

As I address these issues, I can’t express the following enough:

SPOILER ALERT FOR FUTURE’S END!
spoiler-alert

As an alternative future for an already blossoming new continuity, Future’s End saw many recognizable heroes in a disastrous future ruled by Brother Eye, an entity bent of regulating and destroying the current world. Darkseid’s army from Apokolips invaded Earth Prime (along with Earth 2) and Earth Prime hosts the refugees from the destroyed Earth 2. This becomes a point of conflict along with the growing conflicts between heroes and vigilantes, government agents versus soldiers of fortune, magic versus science, and lastly, the impact of new heroes versus the legacy of heroes from the past. While some characters attain noteworthy growth throughout the developing narrative, there are plenty of missed opportunities with characters like Mr. Terrific going from calculating to a moron with no control, Grifter constantly questioning his place and essentially being stuck on an island for most of the story, and King Faraday’s role as a secret agent/behind the scenes character leaves him a one-note character. The story’s overall ambition is to be applauded, but the large cast of characters, the multiple, convoluted storylines, and the slew of artists and writers that take over the story, mixing things too abruptly.

Like I said, the event takes liberties with some of the well-established characters and giving them refreshing new overhauls. Alfred becomes a captivating snarky AI that is lodged in Batman Beyond’s ear, Firestorm changes hosts to a new female form that shares experience and passion, and Shazam, the hero who takes over for a long-lost Superman. What makes these developments upsetting is tied to Batman Beyond’s both inclusion and separation from the New52.

What happens to Batman Beyond is that he becomes the main focus of the event, as he and Alfred are the only ones who traveled to the past (from 35 years into the dying future to 5 years from the New52 current day). As he works to stop the era he came from (the future world from the beloved DC Animated Universe), Terry McGuiness ends up losing his life in a last-ditch effort to save the heroes around him. Tim Drake, a hero who gave up crime-fighting after seeing the Teen Titans decimated, sees Terry’s heroics and decides to follow his path and don the cowl to prevent the apocalypse from the future. Unfortunately, Tim ultimately fails, as he only partly destroys Brother Eye, setting up for a new future where the old future is gone, the new future loses all of the characters established over the past year, and we lose the great Terry McGuiness. While Future’s End is aptly named, it fails to make a lasting impact, we lose an important character who never gets his shot in the main continuity, and the rich world developed over the course of a year is all lost.

Futures_End_46_Large

What’s worse is that the title has led me down a road to narcissism, as I wonder why weekly titles should exist in the first place. Does the tight schedule give creators more of a challenge? Does the large cast benefit from being together every week? I’ve been interested in other events, but the large weekly comics could not be more unappealing. The possibilities for incredible story-telling are outweighed by the large commitment. Some stories are told in single comics that last 6 issues and have incredible lasting effects for the characters, while some events have no singular point after 12, after 20, after 50+ issues. It’s incredibly disheartening to buy into these stories with great premises when they have a potential to let you down week after week after week.

It may be my huge love for Batman Beyond and how game changing the comic and show have been to me, but when great writers and artist take change to give a hero the spotlight they deserve and the last thing they leave readers with is his death, it makes it hard to believe that the writers really knew what they were doing. For now, I have to tread carefully, as good weeklys are still being made with great fan reception, such as Batman & Robin Eternal. But as for now, I’m not ready for that commitment. Let us know what you think in the comments below or via our Facebook and Twitter pages!

ARTIST APPRECIATION – RYAN SOOK

One of DC’s weekly series that I finally got around to read is the New52 Future’s End, starring Batman Beyond in an attempt to change the apocalyptic future from whence he came. While I am on the fence about how I feel after 48 issues of this crazy world we may never see again, a great takeaway from the series is the art. While the interior had multiple great artists, the covers and some of the art design are stunning, all thanks to longtime DC artist Ryan Sook. His work has a little Terry Dodson slickness, the darkness of Mike Mignola, and an energy all his own.

Aside from this weekly series, he’s contributed all around DC, namely for some of the supernatural titles like The SpectreSeven Soldiers: Zatanna, and Justice League Dark.

Lastly, he’s worked on many series outside of DC, including the incredible X-Factor by Peter David.

Nerd Swole Roundtable: Valentines Day

Whether you celebrate Galentine’s, Singles Awareness, or Valentine’s day, February 14th is a time to display some kind of love, so we decided to talk about some things Nerd Swole appreciates about the day, love, and other nerdy things.

Who is your favorite couple across games, movies, TV, anime?

JD and Elliot
Brian: 
I think I’d have to go with Elliot and JD from Scrubs. Something about the way they were written, how at some points I legitimately saw them not being together, and then I couldn’t imagine them not together. They went through so much as friends, colleagues, and lovers that it just felt right when everything finally fell in place for them.

Erin: So many to pick from, but I’m gonna go with Jim and Pam from The Office. The jokes and pranks in that show really enhance their relationship and make it so charming that you root for them the entire time.

Yeksson: I’m going with Bulma and Vegeta.  It’s just not your typical romance.  Out of nowhere, their future child arrives to tell Goku about incoming danger and the fact that his parents are Bulma and Vegeta.  Then there’s the point in the Majin Buu Saga where Vegeta blows himself up, but first admitting to the love he has for his family.

Alex: Tony Stark and Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From employee to boss and friend to friend to inappropriateness to being in love to being dysfunctional together. Perfectly rational relationship in a world with Norse gods, superheroes, alien invasions, and madness every summer.

iron man 2008 pepper and tony

What couple do you wish ended up together, but never did?

Brian: Mal and Inara from Firefly. This type of thing is to be expected from a show that was cancelled too soon. And while there were some exceptionally rude things said between them, they obviously cared very deeply for one another.

Erin: Barney and Nora from How I Met Your Mother. Finale aside, I loved Nora and I think there was so much potential for character growth in Barney while they were together. She really complemented his lifestyle and attitude, and she was a great addition to the overall dynamic of the crew.

Yeksson: Meryl and Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid.  You as a player have to mash a button to survive electrifying torture, twice, just to spare her life.  Sure, they snowmobile off into the sunset together.  However, in MGS4, she ends up marrying her follow comrade Johnny Sasaki.

Alex: James Bond and Vesper Lynd. Casino Royale revamped Bond for a newer generation, taking him to the beginning of earning the “00” license. His arrogance gets him into trouble and Vesper brings him back down to Earth, and Bond’s strength allows him to support Vesper as she comes into a world filled with darkness. Her death truly destroyed James and he became the cold Bond we all know.

maxresdefault

What couple DID end up together that you didn’t want together?

Brian: I’m going to go ahead and pick the low hanging fruit here and say Ted and Robin from How I Met Your Mother. The finale doesn’t bother me as much as it used to, but I’ll just always dislike that ending, because it’s a twist that should be reserved for movies or shorter series, not 9 seasons of buildup.

Erin: I’m gonna take a turn here and go with Bruce Wayne/Batman and Talia al Ghul. Very disruptive relationship for obvious reasons, she stabbed him in the back, pretty much broke his heart, and gave birth to Damian, who is, in his best moments, slightly tolerable.

Yeksson: I’m not too caught up on Arrow but I’m going with Felicity and Oliver.  Mainly because I’ve been on Team Laurel since day one.

Alex: Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in Amazing Spider-Man 2. It just felt like the actor’s had great chemistry and weren’t really playing Peter and Gwen. A rushed relationship that ultimately aimed to play fan service and shock value, instead of develop the characters naturally.

What’s a good movie or episode of TV to watch on Valentine’s day?

Brian: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a movie I love very much, and in my opinion has very appropriate themes for the holiday whether you’re single, dating someone, or married.

Erin: Any episode of New Girl. The show is just ripe with comedic romantic situations and friendships, and makes it such a great watch for people our age. Great to watch with friends, “sig oths”, or even alone chillin. Specifically, “Valentine’s Day” – Season 1, “Thanksgiving IV” – Season 4, and “Cruise” – Season 3.

Yeksson: Friends, the One with the Prom Video.  Yes, it’s about Ross and Rachel and there is an intense feels moment.

Alex: All of the above are great choices, but for me, either Hitch or Crazy, Stupid Love are great romantic comedies that find both sexes at odds and take a lighthearted but honest jab at dating, recovering from heartbreak, and relationships.

What’s the best pickup line?

Brian:

Broken Pencil
You must execute exactly like this.

Erin:

Yeksson:

54580718dhhei_smMost, if not, all of Will Smith’s pick up lines really.

Alex:

ultimate-spider-man-6-2000-bad-pickup-lines

This is all I got.

ARTIST APPRECIATION – Marcos Martín

It’s great to see imaginative creators pair up time and time again. Marcos Martín happens to be a great artist who has continually worked with Mark Waid, Brian K Vaughn, Javier Rodríguez and Paulo Rivera. Marcos Martín hails from Barcelona, but has worked with various publishers, including Image, DC, and Marvel! As I featured in a weekly picks section, Martín’s art is fantastically bold and colorful with every piece he puts out.

DC

One of Martín’s biggest standout is his work on Batgirl: Year One. A mini-series following Robin: Year One, Marcos Martín showed off flair, boldness, and elegance to demonstrate the power of young Barbara Gordon.

Outside of this, Marcos has contributed art, notably some astonishing covers.

Marvel

I was introduced to Martín’s work in the Amazing Spider-Man, when he worked on various stories during the Brand New Day era, issue #600, and beyond.

Marcos Martín has also contributed to two noteworthy heroes, including Brian K. Vaughn’s Doctor Strange: The Oath and Mark Waid’s run on Daredevil! In seeing all of these pieces in conjunction, you can look to the boldness inks, beautiful layouts, and solid figures that capture Martín’s style perfectly.

Marcos Martín’s work with Brian K. Vaughn continued after Doctor Strange, as they teamed up to distribute the critically acclaimed Private Eye. A phenomenal commentary on social media culture and the internet as a societal hazard, The Private Eye was brought to life with Martín’s creativity and imagination.

ARTIST APPRECIATION – ANDREA SORRENTINO

I love featuring artists who bring in a whole new style that shifts the whole direction of the story. Like changing directors during tv seasons, a new artist can take something already great and make audiences see things in a new light. Take the shift in creative team on Green Arrow (2011-present), which ushered in Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino.

9781401244057

Using the new writer to retell the origin of Oliver Queen, artist Andrea Sorrentino took the so-so book from alright to astounding with engaging page layouts, darkness in every corner, and a focus on pushing the limits in actions sequences. Storytelling in the art is equally as important as the writing, as you can tell from the pages below. The CW show Arrow both served as an inspiration and has taken cues from this work on Green Arrow.

tumblr_nvuzfvcW8x1qgoe1ko1_1280 tumblr_nvuze4amIq1qgoe1ko1_1280

In terms of action, transitioning from Green Arrow to Old Man Logan was a smart move in maintaining the level of action and drama in the art. Check out these few pages to see how Wolverine’s beastly nature tears through the pages.
tumblr_ntso8rMStX1uv3pwbo2_1280
tumblr_ntz4lnAopb1rdt8rao5_1280

tumblr_ntz4lnAopb1rdt8rao6_1280

This is one of the few times where I can couple the colorist with the penner, as colorist Marcelo Maiolo (who worked on both of these great titles) was to thank for the success of the pages. Their coupling serves as one of the most unique pairings in comics.

Sorrentino’s art has been all over the place before signing an exclusive contract with Marvel. For examples, his work on the God Of War comic captures the style and fury from the games.

Simply put, the talent is beyond description, as Sorrentino’s coupling of atmosphere, darkness, and intense lighting provides the foundation for some of the best pieces.

Thoughts About Stuff: Ryan Coogler Directing Black Panther

One of my previous articles was that I didn’t think being black was a requirement for directing Black Panther. And while I still think that, I think Ryan Coogler is a creative and talented director and couldn’t be happier he will be at the helm of Black Panther.

Ryan Coogler
Ryan Coogler, director of Creed and Fruitvale Station

Despite this being just his third film, I think there is a lot to like about Coogler’s style and body of work. His previous two movies starred Michael B. Jordan, whom I think is a fantastic actor, but Jordan isn’t solely responsible for how powerful and impactful Fruitvale Station was, and he alone didn’t provide all the energy and resilience in Creed. After making those two movies, it was clear Coogler has a style, and makes very loveable characters, despite them also being very clearly flawed people.

Fruitvale Station
Michael B. Jordan and Melonie Diaz from Fruitvale Station

Which is exactly the type of character you need in superhero movies. As many of them will have stunning action sequences, incredible CGI, and just a lot of popcorn moments. Make no mistake though, the movies that are often more critically acclaimed are the deeper character pieces.

Guardians of the Galaxy was getting to know a bunch of crazy misfits that somehow fit together. Iron Man was a story of redemption after incredible amounts of hubris destroyed Tony Stark’s world. Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a Steve Rogers questioning his place in the world after having always believed in structure and order, and having that structure betray him. Ant-Man shows how far a father’s love really goes.

If you’ve seen Creed and Fruitvale Station, those two are plenty of reason enough to be excited about Ryan Coogler. However, consider the fact that the first time this was offered, Coogler turned it down. To me, this signifies that he probably wanted more creative control than Marvel was willing to give, and after having Creed be such a success, maybe Marvel was willing to give him a little more rope. I would hope this means we get to see a product that Coogler himself builds from the ground up and is proud of. So count me in as someone who is excited to see where Coogler goes with T’Challa.

COSTUME EVOLUTION: RICK GRIMES

The Walking Dead series (both the comic and the TV show) show no signs of stopping, with issue #150 making waves and part 2 of season 6 expected to be returning in a month. While many characters are memorable, it’s hard to ignore how Rick Grimes has taken control of the group and the series. How has this cop with a good head on his shoulders turned into one of the most determined and intense heroes of our time? Let’s see his transformation (and obviously, truly, it could not be more clear…..

ARTIST APPRECIATION – ROD REIS

Artist Appreciation is not just about showcasing the most popular artists; there are artists in several unique mediums who deliver incredible and astounding pages. One of those amazing artists is Rod Reis, a Brazilian artist whose talent in many areas continues to drop jaws.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t showcase one of his standout titles, C.O.W.L.

While I featured C.O.W.L. in an Image spotlight, the art is a breakthrough on each page. Penned by the writer of Nightwing and Batman Beyond, Kyle Higgins, Reis’ designs lying in the sixties era style mix well with the backdrop of crime-ridden Chicago.

However, Reis dominates the page, taking every script and breathing new air into a super-hero crime drama that has been waiting to be tapped since Watchmen.

With or without text, Reis wastes no space or moment to help set the tone and let his work grow on the page. Fortunately, Rod will be returning with C.O.W.L. creators Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel in an all new series called Hadrian’s Wall.

You can check out Rod’s deviantart page and tumblr blog for more great work!
