    Kenneth – a close-up of a faded 1940s era photograph clutched by a person’s right hand. The photograph is of public domain superhero the Black Terror, punching a minotaur wearing a Nazi uniform. The hero looks upbeat but forlorn, like he enjoys his work, but wishes that he had some more down time to smoke Lucky Strike cigarettes and listen to Benny Goodman records. The minotaur looks angry, an ancient primeval monster pressed into the service of a dark modern cause of which it has no understanding, but for which it has great appetite. The minotaur looks distracted, out of its senses from the painful punch it just received and confused about its surroundings. The hand holding the photograph is old and withered, but tanned, with neatly trimmed fingernails suggesting an upbringing at an elite Swiss boarding school. Draw the image in a style that’s a cross between Jack Kirby and Gustave Doré. – Grant

    CAPTION: “Tell the barrister it’s just a wheeze, Mum; no need to spike the bobby!”

    Page One/Panel Three

    Kenny – have a kid in the city running through rush hour traffic chased by a dinosaur. Make it look cool, or you’ll never work in this business again. Just kiddin’. Or am I? – Dan

    CAPTION: Ever have one of those days?

        1. OK, how about imagining how cooler Amazing Spider-Man 2 would’ve been, if Gaimatti had, instead of playing the Rhino, revisited his first role from a comic book film.

          Yep, Spider-Man Meets Harvey Pekar. Obviously a set-up for Amazing Spider-Man 3: Class Trip to Cleveland. (You haven’t seen action, until you’ve seen Spidey try to master a frozen Lake Erie). And if we’re all really lucky: side-trip to Akron to meet Jim Jarmusch. Whole film ends with Jim, Harvey and Pete sharing cigarettes and coffee while Tom Waits croons on the piano.

          Damn, that would be pretty awesome . . .
