I stumbled on this while looking for other random things this morning. Couldn't find any reference to it on film-tech so I thought I'd post it here. Not bad, but not the funniest thing I've ever seen either. Parts of it certainily ring true for those of us in the movie business... [Smile]

I don't know why I never thought to post this before... I worked with him at two different jobs. Extremely funny guy in person. He literally could make any story hilarious just by the way he tells it. His caricatures are top notch, too.... especially when you know the identities behind them. Good ol' "Martin." [Cool]

I had a feeling that a lot of it would have been based on real people, which would make it all the better if you actually knew who was being depicted.

It's funny how I guess almost every cinema must have the same sort of culture - so much of the comic is very much like situations and people that I know and work with here. [Smile]

Actually, I find Brainwrap Comics totally annoying.

And it's not drawn very well, either.

Nor can I relate to any of it. It's all crap! [fu]

Yeah Kyle, that guy really sucks. [Razz]

So did you ever learn booth? Surely you made it past that first day of sweating blood while building the Crimson Tide standee.

I suppose the humor in the comic strip could be better, but then again it's not all that bad coming from an amateur devoting the strip to the experience of working in a movie theater.

It's not all that badly drawn either. In fact, it is pretty decent. At least the line work is clean, the color use is good and the figures don't look "dead." Sure, it doesn't rival the work of John Byrne, but the guy isn't being paid by Marvel. That's just my professional opinion.

Not only did I eventually learn booth, but I finally got to shovel some popcorn!

I learned projection, which was bittersweet. I really really enjoyed it and took immense pride in providing the best picture and sound quality possible. Only problem was, management had other ideas...

...and at this rate, these experiences will be depicted in the comic in about 17 years.

(Coincidentally, projectionists will be introduced in "Brainwrap Comics" in the upcoming update, July 15.)

And yes, I miss it. (Projection, that is. Not shoveling popcorn.) [Razz]

Well I laughed at it and I've never worked in a theater. But it rings true anyway. [Wink]

Regardless of any qualifications on my part, I still found them quite entertaining.

Joe, somewhere in the archives you posted some similar drawings you used to do. You should bump those up at some point.
