Box Office: ‘Fantastic Four’ Bombs With $26.2 Million Weekend

Okay so I have not made my opinion shy about this film. Okay not on here but on my podcast. But I have no plans on seeing this film. I also have said I hope it flops. Well at this moment it seems to be doing just that. The film still has the overseas market to help it along. Of course that could save the film money wise.
Honestly I hope not. I was never a fan of the idea for this film. It’s re-imagining of the original story. Yes I know the other 2 films were not that great but they were still a little closer then this. I believe this all has to do with people that have no idea of the characters or rich history to the FF.
Please let if finally go back to the firm but creative hands over at Marvel. I sure Marvel sheds a little tear when their name is on the screen each time a FF movie is done. A tear of sadness and disgrace.

When Travis asked me to review this book I was surprised when I read it. Before you go and think I did not like this book, don’t. I know very little of Travis McIntire except from from his podcast, Snake Oil Comics. Saying that I was expecting something more, umm lets say dark. But I was pleasantly surprised.

Bayani is the story of a young boy who has set out to save his ill father and his village. The sun and not set in a month. The heat is causing the land to become parched. Bayani set out to sea to hopefully capture fish that has move father away from shore because of the heat. During a disaster at sea Bayani is recruited by the rain god, Pati’.  The quest, to recuse 9 kidnapped daughters of the Lady Moon.

Bayani is a great children book. Well that is how I took it. Travis McIntire does a good job of making the story enjoyable for kids. Hey I had a easy time reading to.  A story of adventure with help from Bayani’s  friend Tala.  Bayani and Tala also get some help from Maria Makiling. Some  ghost show up to help in his quest to find the nine daughters also. Bayani and Tala slowly begin to learn that they also need each other because each have a special skill. This would be a good book to introduce you child to comics.

The art style of Grant Perkins is different but catchy. Children should love the playfully style. Using simple shape that has the look of piece cut and put together.
