"Since the original film barely used anything from the comics beyond the title and the basic concept, there is certainly plenty of room for improvement. I'd watch it."

Heroes Convention 2009

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 11:26pm 2 Comments

After a late start, spent almost seven hours at the convention.
