A new comic-genre themed novel was released today titled "Soon I Will Be Invincible". I won't be buying it, but the cover did grab my attention enough for a posting. The cover has someone holding up the THOR HALLOWEEN COSTUME HELMET. Seriously? Yep. The novel apparently has nothing to do with THOR or HALLOWEEN, so why the pic? Too cheap to have an original made? Is the story about Halloween? (no). Didn't think comic fans wouldn't notice its a Halloween costume? (we would, cause we're crazy like that). Not enough imagination to make an original made? Either way, it comes off as generic, cheap and unimagitive. Yeah, I won't be buying this.
Hmmmm, or, the cheap Thor Helmet was made from another generic helmet with some added bells and whistles.... bah, either way, the book is using a generic helmet! And yes, I do have that Thor Helmet; Halloween 2005 - Japanese Thor, baby! It's sweet and I have the Hammer, too. Jealous?
Is this post pointless and overtly judgemental?
Yes and possibly.
