Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod) replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Deadly Class' TV show improves on its comic book source material
"Also, the casting is visually remarkably on-character with the comic. The biggest exception is the headmaster, but I agree that he is much more imposing than the comic book version. "

"Good review, Mark.  This is one of those series, I'm still not sure if I like it or not. There have definitely been some interesting issues, and it has held my interest enough to keep reading. I'm just not sure about it though."

Heroes Convention 2009

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

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

Thanks, Mark. Just clearing up a question a friend made of me about the review of Don Quixote (I'm NOT that Rob Davis). This looks like a fun place, though I doubt I'll have much time to visit often.
