Oh, fucking hell. I posted to the middle of the story instead of the beginning (any chance matt could fix it?). Here's the correct link.

It's a good read from any starting point...

This is hilarious. There's a lot of other good stuff on Jay Pinkerton's site, like these Spiderman strips. (Probably NSFW.)

agreed. hilarious!

At first I thought that they were simply re-captioned orginals, but clearly he's put in a lot more effort than that.

If only the new movie is this good.

His augmented and remixed trailer storyboards for Lost In Translation ("this summer, get translated!") had me hurtin'.

Very, very funny. Thanks.

THERE'S NO CURE FOR THAT! THEY'RE JUST TAUNTING ME CRUELLY!

whoah, it's original art? i thought they were re-captioned originals as well. reminds me of David Rees' cartoons (which I shall not link to lest I risk immediate revokation of my MeFi account)

Excellent. Read like 70's era National Lampoon!

I don't think it's original art, but it is original in that there's been some extensive editing/remixing of existing art.

Agreed -- very funny stuff!

Nice leotard, Sally.

This is great stuff. I also enjoyed seeing the Fantastic 4 go see their movie.

That was awesome.

I say we take off and nuke Smallville from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Terrific rewrite, but if the art is still under copyright it'll probably get a cease and desist notice and be forced offline. Even if the art is "original", the brand is already owned. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Really funny, thanks.

Psst! There's also a Batman origin story on this site, which is also hilarious.

(Especially since I wasted spent about four hours at this site last night.)

The art isn't original, at least most of it isn't. Compare these.

The pictures of Superboy and Luthor in the lab are identical.
posted by interrobang at 4:11 PM on December 9, 2005


Way better than the original telling.

There's some Jack Kirby in there too.

Superman is a dick.

That was great. Thanks!

I came for the Superman, and stayed for the Spider-Man! Even funnier.

Marked it as a double earlier. I thought it was an FPP. Found the comment here.
posted by Eideteker at 2:04 AM on December 10, 2005


For chrissakes, don't mark things as doubles unless you have proof. Otherwise you're just being a dick.

For real, not cool.

I wonder if he hand-letters all the new text, or if there is actually a good version of comic sans floating around out there.
posted by dgaicun at 10:02 AM on December 10, 2005


Ok, but I posted the proof. Or is linking to multiple separate parts of that site not a double? Especially when that content has been pointed out before? I'm not being nasty; I'm asking. But I flagged it, so it's up to Matt to decide if it constitutes a double. It's a double in my subjective reality, at least.
posted by Eideteker at 11:45 AM on December 10, 2005


Ah, you misunderstand the rule then. Double posts are only about posts; it's OK to post something that's just been in a comment.
posted by languagehat at 11:50 AM on December 10, 2005


Alright. Sorry about the confusion. I wouldn't have flagged it unless I was 100% sure I saw it on MeFi. I thought that since the domain had already been linked it was off limits. Thanks for the clarification. Obviously, people liked the FPP, so no harm; no foul.

The JP forums have a lot of good stuff in 'em, too: Movies in Foreign Lands / Embarassing Screenshots. The Complete News Skim has been linked here before but is a classic.
