Told from the point of view from Archie, a comic book collector, this is the story of a rivalry between two comic book shop owners. One does it for the love of comics, while the other shop, run by a husband-and-wife team are in it strictly for the money. The situation brews to a head when a sneak collector, Conan discovers a large collection of perfectly-preserved classic comics, leading the two shops to vie to acquire them, along with a "villain" who hopes to steal them first. Written by Ryan McIntosh

Making a killing off comic books.....
10 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kind of a unique idea for a dark comedy. Competing comic book store owners trying to outwit each other for a prize collection. Unfortunately the crazed collectors are all, except one, unlikable, unsympathetic, and greedy. The movie is very uneven, with characters morphing from just scheming crazies, to murderers. It is at this point, when almost everyone has transformed into killers, that "Comic Book Villains" seems to have run out of ideas, and rapidly spirals downhill. If after the confrontation in the old ladies home, the script had been fully developed, the movie might have worked better on several levels. As it stands, it is at best, a very mediocre black comedy. - MERK
