Related Strips: #312: The Reader
I didn't post the over-the-weekend update that I'd planned (sorry), so here that is, and there will be two more strips this week — on Wednesday and Friday — although Wednesday's will finish off this scene with Becky, Jay and Jason. See you soon.
The Triple Feature is taking a break this week, so we can catch up on all of the movies for a gala End of 2008 show the following week (…yes, in 2009). Movie buffs like myself, Tom, and Joe always have a heck of a time trying to watch as many of the end-of-year releases as possible, especially with so many awards contenders coming out in the last two weeks of December every year. So far in my own end-of-year movie marathon, the highlights have been The Wrestler (out now in a good chunk of the country), and two documentaries, Man on Wire and Up the Yangtze (both out now on DVD).

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
