In their usual restraint, comic book fans did not complain when early leaked photos from the set of the upcoming movie based on the Captain Anarchy series of books revealed minor changes from the original comic books.

In the Jake Lloyd directed cinematic adaptation of the popular series, Captain Anarchy’s normal disguise of a handlebar mustache drawn on with Sharpie has been replaced by paintball mask that covers his entire face. Also, femme fatale Eternia now wears pants and is not a nymphomaniac.

“All that matters is that we got a good actress who can put on an engaging performance, and be more than just eye candy and a token love interest,” says a satisfied Lloyd. “I mean, if I wanted to jack off, I can go to, am I right?”

But how are news blogs reacting? “You know, I was a little shocked at first when I saw the changes, but some just translate better to the movie screen, you know?” said John Crocket of “Besides, I shouldn’t have been on set anyways. But sometimes these places got really good food and I stole like 80 danishes.”

Readers of were just as level headed, leaving comments such as “I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt,”, “Could be good,” and “As long as the story’s compelling, it doesn’t matter.”

In the movie, Captain Anarchy fights his arch nemesis, The Armored Angel, whom Lloyd says “will dress like Satan and be balls deep in another man at all times”. Long time fans eager for the film’s release have called this move “clever”, “subversive” and “hot as shit”.

X-Force #1 Sells For $.82

In a story so bizarre that even Mojo would be plussed, an issue of “X-force” No. 1 featuring the first appearance of the X-force team recently sold for a whopping price of $.82.

The issue which originally was released in 1991 was sold Saturday by a private seller to a private buyer, according to 26 Panels chief editor Chris Mason.

It’s not the highest price ever paid for an issue of the X-force #1 but it is the highest price paid since two weeks after its release when the resale price sharply dropped for $100 to $.50.

According to Mason, the price paid is the highest paid in the past few years.

“The fact that somebody would buy an issue of this comic shocked me enough but $.82 is an exorbitant amount,” he commented. “The fact that someone looked through a collection and was like ‘Oh, I’ll take the Liefeld comic,’ positively shocks me.”

Usually it has been comics from any period but the 90’s that typically are purchased on purpose for any reason. The fact that this was created by one of the most controversial artists of his time makes the story more noteworthy.

“Last year when I hear somebody paid $20.00 for X-force #1 I was shocked. I did some research though and it turned out it was the “Uncanny X-force” series that started last year signed by Rick Remender and Jerome Opena.”

“Uncanny X-force” No. 1 has long filled dime bins at comic shops, signs of the once booming comic industry which focused around purchasing multiple issues of comics with the hope of selling them off later. When the market collapsed due to too many shitty comics being sold to investors whom would never make money, trillions of potential dollars were lost.

The issue was the first of the series created by Rob Liefeld, who illustrated and wrote the story with Fabian Nicieza. The cover depicts Cable, Boom Boom and Feral as they seem to attack the audience, possibly in an attempt to dissuade them from buying the issue.

The series helped to provide more work for Rob Liefeld who quickly expanded to over 20 monthly series with himself providing most of the art, writing and letters in the letters column.

Mr. Liefeld was not contacted to comment on the article.
