Rob goes back in time 41 years, examining a Marvel & DC combo editorial panel from San Diego Comic Con, 1981! Roy Thomas, Frank Miller, Jim Shooter, Louise Simonson & Denny O’Neil offer the Marvel & DC Comics methods of creating comics! Its a stark contrast to the way comics are presented today! Also, AVATAR, the legacy and success of Jim Cameron!
I will admit that I have Avatar at home. My sister bought it. No idea what I watched when Avatar was in theaters, but the wait line for the showings were packed to the gills.
Avatar is middling at best, but it’s the best balance of by the numbers story and unmatched beauty of the movie’s setting.
Judging by what’s happening with the MCU, Disney is now counting on Avatar Way of Water to help with their bottom line for the future. It was smart rereleasing Avatar to theaters.
Still, the way that Avatar was released again after Endgame unseated it was a dick move.
It’s record breaking box office was well earned, but was then taken away, in a shady move.
Disney hedged their bets by rerereleasing it now, but they should have let the Avatar franchise earn back its box office position with the sequel alone.
Quick correction: Louise Jones/Simonson was married to Jeffrey Jones, later Jeffrey Catherine Jones, not Bruce Jones.
