Archives for Comic Book Movies

Some of our favourite scenes from the movies illustrated as comic strips, just for fun.

Batman Returns

Catwoman Illustration by Christopher King

Illustration Friday’s theme of Whiskers led me down the path of Catwoman, and specifically Michelle Pfeiffer’s version of Catwoman from Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. After all the different Batman movies including Christopher Nolan’s excellent trilogy, Batman Returns remains my favourite (I could even say that Michael Keaton is my prefered Batman) with its festively dark atmosphere,…

Psycho

Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho - Illustration by Christopher King

The countdown to Halloween starts here with my first of three horror favourites leading up to the fright filled day.

There are great one-liners from the character Principle Vernon, played in a brilliant hard-ass fashion by Paul Gleason, who seemed to have reprised this…

Ray Peterson’s new neighbours, the Klopeks have a secret. Strange things are happening in his average suburban street and he’s going to find out exactly what they’re up to…. The Burbs is my Illustration Friday sketch this week on the topic of Secret.
