But it would appear that dear old Frank has ignored my advice and gone ahead with it.
If it looked anymore like Sin City it would have to have Marv lumbering through it. Basically it looks absolutely nothing like a Spirit film should be. It certainly bears nothing more than a passing resemblance to anything I ever saw on an Eisner Spirit page.
Trailer is on Yahoo movies here.
And just in case you needed visual proof:
Darwyn Cooke's recent version, similarly very good and I said so here.
No. Dear God No.
Still, at least I'm not alone in this. Many others seem to think the trailer isn't the most promising start to the Spirit ad campaign. But of them all, Chris Weston's is the funniest commentary on it:
One tries to be professional... pouring scorn upon a fellow member of the comic-strip fraternity is not deemed appropriate or acceptable behaviour...
but, man alive! Does Frank Miller make it hard.
It's a labor not without its pleasures, though. Let's face it, being a full-time critic of Miller's work is a gift that keeps on giving.
