Hey everyone,

Is it me ? All I saw was someone turning pages for over two minutes and nothing happened?
Maybe I need to watch again.

I just quit performing for the most part except for the occasional local show. I can't travel anymore. I still plan on putting out products, and being active in the online community.

The comic is the the gimmick, but there is a easy and subtle solution to let them even keep the Superman issue if you wanted too. I would not though It would become kind of a pain, and get kind of expensive. Unless of course it is a high profile client.

This is something I've been looking for! Now let me tell you why...


My Fav superhero is Superman, I literally have a special room dedicated to Superman in the theater room of my new home, my 2 daughters (13 & 16) always try to mess with me by buying Batman stuff just to tick me off! And it's REALLY starting to work!!! ARRRR! haha


I even have a Professional 1-foot tall Statue of the New Superman Henry Cavill being made for me, it's basically done (Looks CRAZY!!!), I incorporated my magic into this Statue making it look like it is floating 8-inches off of the "New official WB Man Of Steel logo". Unfortunatly I cannot and will not be able to post a Pic of it floating, as an effect is coming out using this genius method of floatation (this is going to revolutionize Magic people!).


N-E-Wayz


The problem why people are not getting your YouTube Video, is because the video starts by you showing a "VERY" tiny glimps of the cover (which is obviously Batman, and I literally had to watch the Vid over again just to see it was Batman), then when the comic changes to Superman, people see the cover and think "ok, so what? Nothing happened!?". Reason being, because they never seen the Batman cover, video starts off much to quick.


You need to do another video brother, with more focus on the cover, and less focus on the pages. Go quicker with the inside of the comic, and you need to "BURN" that image of the cover of Batman in the viewers brains that it is indeed a Batman comic.


Great effect, hope to see a better more well thought-out "quicker" Vid. This should only be a 1-min 15-sec Vid at most to get the point across.


BTW, I'm GETTING THIS!!!! If anything just to get back at my 2 girls! lol Smile

Piz is just "one" fan of Superman!

This could be bigger then the "coloring book!"

Decomposing Without Cryptonite (sic)

PS: Wake up Morgan, Sun coming up. Smile

Warner Brothers may have some issues with use of their TM characters.

Is there a Pat Page callout in there too?

I'm afraid I don't get it either. Fristly, the presentation was way too slow for inclusion in any kind of act - perhaps showing it one-on-one it might be OK. This just looks like two comic books stuck together, one inside the other. The thing about the colouring book is that you flick through ALL the pages (not just some of them) from beginning to end. I guess this Superman version might fool some kids, but not really sure about that. I thought the handling was suspicious - bending the pages back on themselves,to display a single page, then opening them out again halfway through.
I think the premise is great - as kids love Superman and Batman. But this would open a whole other can of worms if this is released as an effect, since the characters are copyrighted, and viciously protected.
No reason why someone shouldn't make up their own prop, using the traditional method. The cover change could be accomplished in a number of ways.
Sorry to be so negative, but I didn't find this exciting at all.
