Did You Know?


The cursed comic is meant to date from 1947, but bears no resemblance to comic books of that period, particularly the glossy, (badly) painted cover. The dealer also claims Pearless Comics released it in a limited edition, a concept which didn't exist until decades later. Finally, it's doubtful the comic's artist would have kept any of his original work; most creators then were on a "work for hire" contract and the publishers routinely retained the artwork.

The series take off...finally
7 September 2009 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

Finally the series takes off. After a somewhat slow start, "Friday the 13th; The Series" offers a rock solid episode that's funny, suspenseful, well acted and well written. Episodes 6 ("The Great Montarro"), 7 ("Doctor Jack") and 8 ("Shadow Boxer") showed improvements but still didn't hit the jack-pot but here's a winner.

The always good Ray Walston gives solid performance as a former comics writer with a grudge who's able to dish out some long awaited revenge against the man who stole his fortunes when he can become the super villain he created.

Micki, Ryan and Jack are all likable characters but they can go overboard on occasion, especially Micki. All actors are solid and here John D. LeMay and Robey get a chance to pull off some dramatic acting, especially LeMay who shines here (actually, Chris Wiggins sits this one out).

The show is fairly pedestrian when it comes to special effects but the transformations from old man to superhero are imaginatively executed.

Overall, the best episode from the series so far.
