Josh Trank‘s all-new, all-different Fantastic Four hits theaters everywhere next year, exactly 10 years after the first time a major Hollywood studio tried to make Marvel’s First Family, if not an Avengers level chart smasher then at least an X-Men par hit movie. But it wasn’t either. Despite getting enough grease to warrant a sequel, Tim Story‘s two Fantastic Four movies remain a giant example of what not to do when adapting a comic book into a film.

There are a ton of awesome things to behold every day but we’re fuckin’ lazy bastards, so we just put it all together once a week to keep your mojos happy. Because I wasn’t able to get the stock pile up last week, we’ll be having a double feature this week showcasing only the best of the best from the past two weeks!

Really, take your time after the break to look and read each letter because it really is nothing but pure enjoyment. (more…)
