Well, 3 days into the new year and we finally talk about comics.
Once upon a time, there was this movie, and everyone went to see it. A lot of people loved it and it was really influential. There was a time that everything that came out in that movie's genre took its cues from that movie. That movie got two sequels and everyone like the two sequels to that movie, and they liked those movies (collectively) so much they were still chattering on about how they wanted more nearly 25 years after that movie came out.
"More," they said. "Give us MORE!"
And then came the news that there was going to be more movies. Even better, they were going to be set before that movie so now, finally fans of that movie would be able to see how it all began. All the questions would be answered, and the long wait would soon be over and there's be more.
And more is always better, isn't it?
Oh, I'm getting off-point. Anyways, the day finally came when the prequel to that movie came out. And what, pray tell, was this movie, this surely worthy successor to the movie that had been so widely seen, widely loved, and so influential?
I think it was called The Phantom Menace.
"What the hell is THIS shit?" they said.
Think about that as you follow those Bleeding Cool leaks, won't you?
