I saw Captain America The Winter Soldier last night. I thought it was a great film all around. A good spy/war/action/super hero movie, not just a great super hero flick but a great movie period.
As a tribute to this awesome film and character I thought I should post something fighting and exposing injustice in this corporate corrupted, politically correct and dysfunctional system. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Married to the Blob it's the 540th Simpsons episode, it was aired January 12th 2014. I worked on it and I couldn't be more disappointed with the color and some other super hero related business on this show.
I was a character designer and had no control whatsoever over a lot of issues in this episode.
Some times changing what you are joking about to the point it becomes something else and parody has disappeared, it's one of the many examples to show how the corporate world gets on the way of good art and film making not being made by people that cares. I've noticed when it comes to super heroes 80% of the time things are changed and colored so differently that it's almost an insult to the comic book community. Therefore I'm posting how this Captain America Jack Kirby style should have been colored. The upper version it's how it should have been, the bottom version it's what aired...Seriously who colors Captain America pink and orange? Really?...Perhaps earlier in the same shot an Everyman comic cover it's featured spoofing Captain America, and perhaps someone thought it would be conflicting with the real Captain America comic cover. Well simply don't use that Everyman cover, the Captain America one is the joke and the one being featured so pick another un-important background comic for the shot.
Please forgive me Jack Kirby wherever you are in comic book artist Gods heaven, it wasn't my fault.
May Truth, Justice and the American Way prevail!
