I keep expecting a powerful revenge sequence not unlike in The Mask, even if that movie was a few years too late for this comic.
Funny you should mention The Mask
. In my old movie script for Dark Relic
(which served as the basic foundation for the Satan Ninja story), the main character (still named Eddie and he would have been played by a nineteen-year-old me) is a nerd who wants nothing more than to be really cool so he can get his dream girl. The party sequence happens similarly to how it played out in the comic, but then a wizard who witnessed everything gives Eddie a magical bone glove that, upon wearing it, turns him into the mega-cool greaser guy he always wished he could be. My idea being that the glove would channel a person's idealized version of them self or something like that.
Then one of my friends read the script and pointed out that my magic glove functioned way too similarly to The Mask
. That hadn't been my intention at all, but he was right. In light of that, I decided I'd need to heavily re-work the story. So that's one of the reasons I never ended up filming Dark Relic
, although another reason is that I was unable to secure the funding I thought I was going to get.
It's definitely for the best, though. I cringe when I re-read that old Dark Relic
script, but I love that it evolved and mutated into the mega-radical Satan Ninja 198X
My Babe Alert isn't ringing. Is this the first page in months without sexy curves and bodacious bods?
Holy shit, you're right. Jessica will be beaten severely for this glaring omission. Even if my script does not provide opportunity for T&A, she should force it. So Eddie's walking through the dark woods at night? Who says there can't be a nude centerfold tacked to a tree? Or a sexy wood nymph spying on him? Or the trees themselves could have tits.
Heh, eventually the comic will devolve into the Idiocracy
version of itself, which will be nothing but pages of giant tits bathed in neon light with the pentastar icon in place of nipples.
