Comics from Tracy


In our film "Tracy" we had a scene featuring one of the characters secret comic book collection. We created over 30 original comic book covers, most of which go completely unnoticed in the 3 to 4 minute scene. For the next few months I'll post one a week so that they can finally get their due.

I did this one, and I'm not really sure what it's based on, but it just seemed like some kind of dumb Disney pirate cartoon that I would hate. I don't like pirates. Sorry, I just didn't grow up with "cool" pirates. To me pirates have always been kind of boring. The only pirates from my childhood were in a movie from the 80's called "Ice Pirates" and I'm pretty sure that sucked.



This is why my generation hates pirates...

Dick jokes, poop jokes, racial stereotype jokes!

That's comedy!

I hate to say this, but I hate "talk like a pirate day", and I don't really get the spagetti monster, I don't like the pirate store, but you're right, at the time I loved "Ice Pirates", but mainly for the reasons you listened below which are not a part of most pirate activities.

It's deleted, but it leaves an area saying it was deleted. I like that because it looks like I have more comments.

I'm with you about hating on pirates. The only decent pirates are those modern day Somalians who go out in rowboats and rob cruise ships. Now that's funny! As for that stupid "talk like a pirate day," people who participate in that are the same people who play cards at parties, and whose past Halloween costumes included:

1997-2002: Austin Powers
2006: Generic Pimp Costume
2007: Borat
2008: Health Ledger's Joker
