Heya Guys 'n' Gals,
for today I got a little bit to talk about. Somethings about my work and some things about my free time activities.
To my surprise, Netflix added Supergirl last week to their roster of shows. Back when it originally came out I watched the first and second episode and decided it wasn’t for me. But over the time I wished to get back to it because the crossed over to the CW shows Flash and Arrow. But at that point, I started to watch my shows on platforms which officially streams them. So I had to wait until all my shows end up on Netflix. Unfortunately the Flash rights “belong” to Amazone Prime so I couldn’t catch up with that show for now. Arrow is on Netflix but only up to Season 4. I already watched all four Season, so I have to wait for that as well.
As I said to my surprise Supergirl was added and I got my DC Comics Show fix. So here comes some kind of review of mine.
As I already stated, the show wasn’t my thing. The first thing I was confused about was that Jimmy Olsen is some Big muscly guy instead of the short ginger boy. As I continued watching I noticed something. Almost every Character is a “Supergirl Counterpart” to the Superman Characters.
Supergirl/Kara Danvers = Superman/Clark Kent
James Olsen = Lois Lane
Maxwell Lord = Lex Luther
Cat Grant = Perry White
And so on. These are only the Key Characters. The Villains also were either Clones of Supermans Villains or straight up Villains from other heroes. Indigo was freaking Brainiac!
I’m not deep enough in the Supergirl Lore to say the Show has lazy Character designs or Storytelling, but I was quite disappointed.
The Crossover Episode with Flash was the most fun I had with the show. That’s not because Barry Allen is a funny Character and better written as Supergirl. The rest of the Cast were funnier than in the whole show. That proves to me that they are able to make the show unique and fun. Or more fun. The show isn’t boring but it misses something. CBS can’t get it “right” as The CW. I just read that the Show is in the hands of The CW since 2016. I guess I can hope season 2 will have more spunk than the first one. I already know there will be more crossover episodes and I’m excited to see them.
Some Friends come and go. No reason, just gone and reappear one day. This happens to me, or better said to one of my best friends. With MJ I talked, chatted and sometimes hung out, but slowly it got rarer and stopped eventually. To be honest I didn’t realize it for the longest time. Sometimes you have a quite time with each other. Not being angry with each other but the lives going in separate directions. I thought this was happening. The last Sylvester I said my Happy New Year to her and nothing came back what worried me a little bit. But even then I didn’t think there was something up. After some month I started missing her a little bit and I tried to reconnect. I don’t wanna go into details because it is more about the personal life of somebody else, but there were reasons why she didn’t talk to me and those are gone now.
It is not like back then, but our little chats we have are a reminder of the old days. That makes me happy.
Actually, I started thinking about her as I started redesigning the Cast of Abesome Life. As I did her design it triggered the memories from the time we hung out and stuff. Well, last week I showed the new design of her, and it was adorable. It was like back then when I showed her the first design of the Character. You’ll read about it on the 59th page of the One-Offs. I really had a blast talking with her about my work. It was like when we met and I worked on my final exam for the Design school. Anyway, when I talk more about it I’ll spoil the next few comics for you.
That the next pages are about her is actually a coincidence. I planned these months ago and the moment I started working on them she comes back and talks me into changing her design. Well, right on time I guess. If I had already drawn those pages, redesigning her again would have been confusing for the reader.
Welcome back, MJ. In the Comic but also in my life.
