Superheroes

I realize I’m slacking a ton on posting to this blog. Sometimes I just don’t do much drawing, or feel like I have anything to write about. Other times, what I do have doesn’t really seem worth sharing. I’m trying to get better at that.

I got around to watching Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse and agree with everyone else I’ve heard talk about it. It is a phenomenal film. The characters are relatable, the story is both light-hearted and meaningful, and carries you through the entire narrative without a dull moment. It’s also an homage to comics as a medium and art form, all the way down to the style of the film itself.

It’s kind of incredible how a story about people with superpowers running around and fighting each other can speak truth and be inspiring. Of course, any movie that is just about people with superpowers running around and fighting each other will be flat and uninteresting. A movie that uses this as a setting for a richer story will be dynamic and very interesting.
