I think I know a certain someone from our show who would love this shirt . . .
Some will say it is rigged . . . others will say they didn’t know or care about it . . . still others will same something about how they wish they never would have given us their phone number; but alas, this is not important as we have a winner of our very first contest! We asked people to write in with “Stuff They Wish To Be Other Stuff” entries, which means what TV show/Movie/Videogame or other media they wish to see made into a comic book.
Brian, AKA Geek Lantern took up the call and did such. And his was chosen from a sea of entries (can 3 be a sea?). Check Below:
To members of the Burnt Weiners Think Tank:
Not sure if any of you have seen the the two seasons/volumes of this show but it would be awesome if Sleeper Cell was made into/continued in comic form. Kind of started thinking about this when Buffy and Angel were continued in comics and would love Sleeper Cell to make an appearance. The first reason it needs to be stuff that used to be other stuff, it ended on a cliff hanger. Imagine Star Wars ending not continuing after “The Empire Strikes Back”, sure it would have ended before we got some crappy stuffy like ewoks but you would not have gotten that sense of resolution from Return of the Jedi. Without spoiling Sleeper Cell for those of you who haven’t seen it, the second volume (American Terror) ends with him in quite a precarious situation. Reason #2 it needs to be in continued in comics, it was a great story with interesting characters! Basically the show follows practicing Muslim/government agent Darwyn Al-Sayeed (played by Michael Ealy) as he infiltrates terrorist sects uncover to stop their acts and track down the higher ups. While the comic wouldn’t feature the actor who brilliantly portrayed these characters, in the hands of a good writer and artist combo I could see the book going very far. Last reason, they would no longer have to worry about a budget. With no special effects costs to worry about besides the artist, so much more could be done in the way of fight scenes and explosions. Just imagining the kind of things they could do gives me a rise in my levi’s!
The “Other” Brian (Geek Lantern)
What does he win? Well, he wins some old clothing provided by Steege, or possibly some sock puppets (oh, and we will be throwing in something a little extra to sweeten it all up). Are you insanely jealous? You should have entered. Do you not care? Then why are you reading this?
