I’ve responded to all emails and comments sent before March 20… right?

Published by at 4:15 pm under Reader Questions

If you sent me something to review or a question before March 20 and are still waiting on a response, please resend it.  Right now, I have Scott C., Harry,  Aaron J., Stacy B., Matt, Emily and Greg M. on my assignment list.  (Generally speaking, I usually respond to questions within one week and do chapter reviews within 2, so if you haven’t heard back by then, please send me a reminder).  As always, I can be reached through my contact form or by emailing superheronation-at-gmail-dot-com.

    Does this mean you never got Chapter 12? (The chapter I sent last weekend) If not, I’ll happily resend it.

    I received chapter 12 on March 20. I think I’ll have it ready by this Sunday, March 27.

    I’m going to see if I can hijack this post to ask you all a question. Have you seen the new Captain America trailer? If so, what are your thoughts about it?

    The writing didn’t feel very sharp to me. In particular, Tommy Lee Jones’ lines sounded like pretty much any other war movie ever. I thought some of the one-liners were amusing, though, especially the one about penicillin. The trailer doesn’t fill me with the same sense of boredom/ennui/foreboding as I Am Number Four’s, but I’d be amazed if this turned out as well as Iron Man 2.

    Also, I don’t blame them for leaving Red Skull out of the trailer. Tommy Lee Jones cryptically notes, “The enemy is not who you expect,” which I think is studio code for “There’s no way to show this villain without provoking laughter from casual prospective viewers.”* (In contrast, the Dark Knight’s second trailer opened with the Joker and gave him more lines than Christian Bale/Batman).

    *Partially because movie budgets are vastly larger than comic book budgets, movies have to go FAR broader in terms of audience. Captain America comics average considerably fewer than 100,000 sales on ComiChron. You can’t recoup a $140 million budget on 100,000 sales unless you’re selling each ticket or DVD for $1400 each (plus the theater’s/distributor’s cut and your profit margin), so the only way to make it work is to push for much more casual viewers.
