The Comic Critic Reviews Gulliver's Travels - 2010

I was stuck on a long flight with too much turbulence to sleep or draw. I’d seen all the other movie options, leaving me with Gulliver’s Travels. While the turbulence might have been the reason for my fellow passengers’ queasiness, it was this movie that made me nauseous.

This was a very busy weekend for me. Friday I went to Tacoma's 72-hour film festival, which was a blast. I skipped the wrap party because I needed my sleep in order to get ready for Free Comic Book Day. I had a blast taking my friend and neighbor, Pat Smith, to a couple of my favorite comic book stores. I would have tried for all of them in town but the I was worn out from the previous evening. I have a huge stack of comic books now. As soon as I'm done reading them I will be giving them to my nephews.
