The Dark Knight Raises Questions

I Miss Heath…
So, full disclosure, I was a little underwhelmed with “The Dark Knight Rises” version of Bane the first time I saw it. Subsequent viewings of trailers have brightened my perspective but I still have reservations. It’s nothing against Tom Hardy as an actor but I guess I always saw Bane as a cartoonishly powerful freak of nature. Here is why I’m optimistic though… I didn’t think Heath Ledger would make a good Joker before I saw the last film.
I believe my bias comes from growing up on the Cartoon series and comics. My ideal Joker, before I saw The Dark Knight, would have been Hugo Weaving or Willem Dafoe… you know, someone who LOOKED more like Mark Hamill’s Joker. Well, Ledger proved me dead wrong and I hope Hardy does the same but I won’t get my hopes up.
Not cause I don’t believe it will be great but if I go in expecting less, then I can’t be disappointed.
Here is hoping that we are all blown away with the awesomeness that is DKR but I’m going to assume the worst, for my own safety 😉
Imagine Industries Rises
We’ve been putting a lot more thought and effort into growing our sites fan base in resent weeks and, as you may have noticed, there has been a few minor changes (you know, besides the fact that we do a photocomic now 🙂 ). One of the biggest changes is that we’ve expanded the way we (try to) bring in traffic. Besides the text links to our Stumble/Reddit posts (which we really appreciate you guys liking/upvoting), we also moved our Scribol ad to right under our comic. For those of you not familiar with Scribol, it is a completely free site (at least for you and I) dedicated to introducing fans to new media (like us). The way it works is, every time one of our readers click one of their links, Scribol advertises us to a new reader. It’s a pretty sweet program and best of all, you can help Imagine Industries without spending a cent.
As always, our goal is to provide free entertainment to you, our fans but look at it this way. If we grow II to the point that we being to take in money from our ads, we will be able to take time off our Paying Jobs to focus on our comic. This means, better comics and very possibly, more comics a week. I don’t know about you but I would LOVE to put out 3 comics a week… or more.
