Oooo

Okay, this news makes me smile.

I quite enjoy Greatest American Hero (my ex-roommate simply adores it) and I was annoyed by the way it ended. So a comic book continuation is awesome news. I realize it'll probably suck. But more Ralph! And Bill! And the students! Especially the hot one played by Michael Pare!

I don't have a lot of patience with bumbling heroes, but the fact that he didn't know how to work the suit was never Ralph's fault. Besides, he was fairly clever, adaptable and always meant well. Also William Katt wasn't bad to look at, he had a dorktastic sort of appeal.

I just hope they'll actually use the likenesses of the characters. The old school Battlestar Galactica comic annoys me. Starbuck ought to look like Starbuck. Just pay the damn people and use the RIGHT image. Yeesh.

    You might enjoy Truth, Justin & the American Way from Scott "PvP" Kurtz, Aaron "ps238" Williams and Giuseppe "Italian stuff I'm not familiar with" Ferrario. Its like a comic mash-up of 80s nostalgia television...

    Plus theme song!

    Sadly, I had the theme song to TGAH on 45 as a kid.
