Went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, sort of on a fluke, but I have to admit I really enjoyed it. Definitely the best one in the franchise since the original, and despite a relatively long run time, it’s nothing like the horribly bloated World’s End.
Salazar is easily as good a villain, if not better, than Dave Jones. And the supporting cast, especially Barbosa, kill it.
Oddly, though, the movie retcons a lot of the Jack Sparrow lore established in outings 2 and 3, but it’s mostly for the better.
If you were on the fence, get off and go. You’ll have a lot of fun.
The three zombie button pins for backers of my A, B, Zeees Kickstarter arrived today. Shipping soon!
Color concept for a 12 foot teddy bear character for a graphic novel I’m working on now.
I usually write comics and novels, but I was on a zombie kick a while ago and wrote a bunch of zombie poems. I turned one of them, The A, B, Zeees, a zombie alphabet, into an actual project that I’ve launched on Kickstarter.
If you’re familiar with books like Edward Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies, or The Dangerous Alphabet by Niel Gaiman, it’s a lot like that.
If you like humor and/or zombies, you should take a look. I’d definitely appreciate it you could share and, dare I ask, back the project!
