THESE PREQUELS WILL BE JUST AS GOOD AS THE MOVIE WAS.

Also, if the prequels don't have more excerpts from Tales of the Black Freighter, then fuck 'em.

Watching the first film made me wish I had read the comic.

I did like Straczynski's quote on the subject: "I think one loses a little of the moral high ground to say, 'I can write characters created by Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle and Frank Baum, but it's wrong for anyone else to write my characters.'"

That said, I'm mostly just excited to see Adam Hughes do some interior work. And it's not like DC has a reputation for preserving the sanctity of their characters. Doing things like killing off Superman or constantly rebooting your entire universe's continuity tends to get more press.

I agree with Lethem for once. This *is* inviting a disgrace. It's more than that, it's furnishing a love nest for a disgrace.

frankie, you can still read it, you know. You should read it.
