IVP - Strangely Dim - God Bless the Fantastic Four

God Bless the Fantastic Four

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: God bless Batman. The film is doing well at the box office and afforded me yet another article opportunity; click here to check out "Everything Silly Is Serious Again."

But one thing I haven't said before is "God bless the Fantastic Four." I'm saying it now though, because it hasn't even opened yet and has already opened the door for me to write an article for Christianity Today online; click here to read "One Fantastic Family."

It's been a nice summer. I got a giant Batman for my birthday, and I continue to meet really nice, really interesting people simply as a consequence of writing about comic books. To quote George Gershwin: "Nice work if you can get it."

Sweet! Isn't it a great time to be a comic fan?! All these serious efforts from Hollywood to tap into this market. :-)

I found your blog through Anna Broadway's. Looking forward to reading more of your stuff.

Thanks for stopping by, Rob. I just found Anna Broadway's blog today, actually--go figure! Both Chicago newspapers panned the Fantastic Four movie, I'm afraid, but I'll still see it, see it again, and buy the DVD.
