John Carter

Thomas A. Rice nominated me and asked 3 questions which I am about to answer for you. Prepare yourself...

Must go faster... MUST GO FASTER!!!!!
Must go faster... MUST GO FASTER!!!!!

1. Are you in fact John Carter: Warlord of Mars? or did Edgar Rice Burroughs make that part up?

Unfortunately no. I am not from Mars nor have I ever been, although it is definitely on my bucket list. I am from Texas, but nobody is perfect, right? I am a huge fan of the John Carter properties in all forms. I have the collection of all 11 books (I really need to finish them). The first book was written over a century ago. If Jules Verne is the Grandfather of Sci-fi, then Edgar Rice Burroughs is his heir.

I have a theory that Superman is based on John Carter. Originally Superman didn't fly, but he could "leap tall buildings with a single bound." He is also exceptionally strong, because he is from a planet with a heavier gravitational pull. In one of the books John Carter is even referred to as a super man. Just a theory. I have not researched it very deeply to see if it's true, but it is definitely plausible.

Fine... I'll do it myself.

2. What was your first comic book and did your Girlfriend/Wife/Mother make you throw them all out?

I am actually one of the people that got into comic books in reverse. I only started collecting them recently, but I have read quite a few. Growing up I was always checking out my friend's collections, but I didn't really have the money to start collecting. Any extra money I ever got went towards guitars or drums.

But recently I realized that it would be fun to collect a few. The Christmas before last I went to Barnes and Noble to get two comics for my nephews to start their collections. They had a "buy 2 get 1 free sale" so I ended up with one. My nephews got Guardians of the Galaxy and Batman: Noel, and I got Thanos Rising. I really enjoy Thanos Rising, but being a father of three and a full time college student I am still not convinced that I should continue collecting. I would love to, but it is quite expensive. Again, any extra money I get usually goes towards guitar toys. No, my wife has not made me throw out my one comic book... yet.

3. If you had to choose between Action Comics Issue #1 or Amazing Fantasy #15 which would you pick?

No brainer. Action Comics Issue #1 all the way. It has little to do with the value or the nostalgic points. Superman is my favorite super hero. If I were to start an enormous collection it would be quite Superman heavy. I really like Batman too, but I am way to much of an optimist to call him my favorite. Another hero I like a whole lot is Beta Ray Bill. I really want him to show up in Guardians of that Galaxy 2. He is probably my favorite Marvel character. But Supes is my number one. I named my son (who is 10 months old) Judah Kalel Carter. Here he is...

Hi Moviepilot!!!!!

I just got a whole lot of cute points, right?

So now I am nominating Tisha Mae Eaton. Here are your incredibly invasive and super personal questions.

1) What is your favorite Pride and Prejudice? BBC mini-series (1995) or Movie directed by Joe Wright (2005 with Kiera Knightley)?

2) Which Hayao Miyazaki film would you like to see be made into a live-action film?

3) If you could cast an Anne of Green Gables today, who would you choose? You can be as detailed as you like, but I am just asking for five characters: Anne (with an "E") Shirley, Diana Barry, Gilbert Blythe, and Marilla & Matthew Cuthbert.

Have fun :)
