Carl Weathers, about to bite it in Friday Foster.

"Any other movie studio would just re-cast and move forward with production. Money is money is money. But, what Marvel has proven to do differently, is to actually give a crap about who they can sign on for three to six movie deals. For the most part—considering the sheer size of their character cast—they’ve succeeded. What they’re creating is a fully living and breathing fictional universe, and the longer they can maintain that immersion by using the same actors, the longer they’ll ensure their general audience numbers continue to grow. Because, let no one be fooled: the comic fan is not Marvel’s target audience anymore… not with their cinematic work… and not with their comics. Alonzo and Co. may have finally embraced what it takes to invigorate the stagnant market. Their business model no longer requires them to keep the status quo in their books. The aging fanboy is becoming voiceless. Embrace the change with the company, or move on to something else, or somewhere else."

A bit of history on Friday Foster, the comic that became the movie we’re discussing on the July 24 episode of 24 Panels Per Second!

Friday Foster by Jim Lawrence and Jorge Longarón
The Friday Foster comic strip debuted in the Chicago Tribune in 1970 and ran until 1974. It was the first syndicated comic strip to feature an African-American woman in its lead role. Foster was an assistant photographer at a New York fashion magazine who used her charm, wit, and street-smarts to moonlight as a detective. In 1975, Friday Foster was adapted into a feature film starring Pam Grier.

Diversify!

I’m thinking about changing up what this blog is used for. To date, I’ve just been posting the “based on” title cards for comic book movies, but that really limits our audience and doesn’t do much to promote the podcast (which you can subscribe to on iTunes or 24panelspersecond.com). We used to do something to anticipate each new episode that we called a “preview post.” These were a lot of work and nobody read them. But Tumblr is a great tool for doing pretty much the same thing that we did in those posts, but in a more accessible format that people can more easily access and share. Hopefully this draws some more eyes to the show! 

Friday Foster. Directed by Arthur Marks, 1975.
