Dark Horse to publish comic by Morgan Spurlock

The Hollywood Reporter (via Robot 6) tells that the crummy leftist documentarian Morgan Spurlock is going to turn his overrated Super Size Me into a comic. Oh, isn't that a brilliant idea. And he even says:
Spurlock said after his movie was released that he and Warrior Poets were inundated by calls from people who wanted to share their tales from the fast-food underbelly, including the story of a fat man whose cremation made a mortuary smell like French fries and the man that built in his garage a museum of McDonald's food that never aged.

"As great as they were on paper, I think they'll be better told in a graphic-novel form," Spurlock said. "They're funny, they're gross, and hopefully they'll be informative too."
And that's exactly why we'd be better off without this crudeness littering up the market. This is all just tabloid stupidity, and an expansion of the bad taste that's ruined a lot of movies for 2 decades now. Some of the other problems I have with Spurlock are that he's been an apologist for Islamofascism, and his claim that he found Osama bin Laden sounds like another attempt to claim fame for the wrong reasons. That's why his invasion into comic book land is all the more appalling. The industry would be better off without people like Spurlock and his super-size stupidity around.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
