Comic for Thursday, Dec 16, 2010

This isn't the first time I've been hunting Writer's Blocks... Although, in sketchbook "continuity", there's only one, so I'm not sure how it flanked me here, and it's technically my pet...

I wanted to see when Writer's Block last appearance was, and I might be wrong about this, but I think it was 2008. Damn. No wonder the little guy's gone feral!

This sketchbook was inspired by two things. First, the fact that I had a bunch of scripts done, but then decided they didn't really work and set them on fire. Secondly, Jurassic Bloody Park. I love those movies. I'm hoping they make a fourth one. I don't care if the story's crap; I just want to see realistically rendered dinosaurs in a movie. If you put a T-Rex in a trailer, I WILL see the movie.

Yes, even that one. Seriously, they should do a cut of the Land of the Lost that's just a montage of the T-Rex scenes. They could call it Land of the Lost: Good Version.

Speaking of Jurassic Park, and Robert Muldoon in particular, the first movie inspired some truly horrendous comic books. Well, maybe not horrendous. It's been too long since I've read them to make that call, but the comics I refer to took place after the movie and had criminals trying to train velociraptors.

Wait, that sounds awesome. I need to track those things down.

I only got the first two issues, so I'm not sure how the story turned out, but Robert Muldoon was in them. Let me say (write) that again: it takes place after the first movie, and Robert Muldoon was in them. Apparently, that whole "clever girl" bit in the movie? That was just part of his master plan! Yeah...

Oh, OH! I can't let this commentary end without chastising Journey to the Center of the Earth. Screw you, Journey to the Center of the Earth! I sat through your entire movie because of that T-Rex, and he was barely in it! And don't get me started on It's a Wonderful Life's T-Rex.
