It’s three weeks ’til the new Superman movie comes out and I am pretty excited. I’m going to the premier in my best suit and then under that suit I will wear my Clark Kent suit and under that suit I will wear my superman pajamas suit, I may never take off the first two suits at the cinema but I’ll know that underneath it all I’m a Superman… a sweaty, suffocating Superman who will order a large Coke at the candy bar and will freak out in the bathroom when I undo 2 flies and have to wrangle the underpants I’m wearing over the superman suit.
In anticipation for the new film and because it’s fun to make movies, some friends of mine have started a web-series called Justice Lease. I contributed four illustrations for the intro which look really slick incorporated into the final product.
The series is about superheroes living together. The house is perhaps too small to contain all of their egos and alter egos.
I have an alter-ego called Chad Bunnings. He understands what all the posts are for in all of the sports, he can open the front boot of a car and tell you the machine part that’s not working, he even has names for his fists: Punchy and Phillip.

Superman is not the best thing for Metropolis. Ever notice that all the other major cities remain somewhat untouched but the one he lives in gets the crap beaten out of it? The Mayor of Metropolis is spending so much of the budget rebuilding the city that the the arts and schools get almost nothing. The homeless population get no support from the council and to make matters worse it’s really hard to actually see the homeless population of Metropolis because they are all dressed in suits, suits donated by an anonymous benefactor who leaves them in phone-booths all around town. Let’s face it, the best thing Superman does for Metropolis is clothing the homeless.
So if you want a real hero you should meet Sally Gyles. Sally is traveling to India to get kids out of child labor and in to schools. She needs help fundraising so if you flick her a few bucks you will in turn be helping give some really destitute kids a future. Sally is doing much more than leaving suits in phone booths.
