Cartoon Wedding Invitations - Because Getting Married Is Supposed To Be Fun, Right?

Cartoon wedding invitations are a fun twist on traditional formal wedding invitations. Let's face it, no matter how much money people spend on their wedding invitations, very rarely do you receive one that truly captures your attention. They all kind of look the same despite any effort to make them unique. This isn't the case with cartoon wedding invitations. Each wedding invitation is totally unique to the individual couple. These invitations are often creative and individual expressions of the couple's personality. You can provide all the detailed information a wedding invitation requires but the clever presentation will catch the eye of everyone!

Your cartoon wedding invitations can include your favorite cartoon or comic book characters, perhaps dressed in full wedding apparel to represent you and your significant other. Another idea is to set it up like a newspaper comic, a four panel cartoon, informing people of your wedding date. You may also decide to have an illustrator create caricatures of the two of you for the enjoyment of friends and family. The caricature portrait could display the two of you in funny situations or poses. An exaggerated caricature portrait may be something that wedding guests would likely keep in a scrapbook to remember the event and laugh at your colorful and clever wedding invitation. You may even want to frame you caricature portrait to preserve what should be a life-long memory.

You have several different routes in the creation of your cartoon wedding invitations. You may find a known caricature artist in your region or find some graphic designers capable of completing the job.

Animated films, and comic presentations usually consist of a cartoon. When cartoons are used in print Media, it mostly refers to a humorous single-panel drawing or gag-cartoon, most of which have captions and don't necessarily use speech balloons. Cartoons are also used to refer to a comic strip.
In Modern print media, a cartoon is a piece of art, usually with a humorous intent. This started long ago when magazines used to publish satirical drawings on its pages.

So as such cartoons are used to illustrate and demonstrate humour and intend to make you laugh.

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

"Houdini meets Two-Guys-in-a-Garret" could be a suitable subtitle for this novel which follows the heyday of the comic book industry in America.
Joe Kavalier is the tortured escape artist, a brilliant cartoon illustrator, who has studied magic and Houdini in his native Czechoslovakia, and who escapes to New York via a circuitous route in a coffin carrying the Prague Golem. Sam Clay is his New Yorker cousin who also worships Houdini and writes fantastic scripts and pulp novels. Put these two together and they come up with a series of comic books that rival the established superheroes of the day: Superman, Captain America, Batman et al.
Kavalier impotently fights the Nazis through his superheroes and dreams of helping his family escape the concentration camps to America, while Clay is trying hard to cover up his latent homosexuality. Both are trapped in metaphoric coffins, while their alter-ego hero, The Escapist, with his Hitler-bashing escapades, becomes a hit and makes them rich in the New World, and makes their unscrupulous bosses even richer.
The theme of entrapment and escape runs through the novel: Kavalier's escape from Prague, his enslavement in an observation station in the Antarctic in the company of dead crew and dogs, his later forced hiding inside the Empire State Building as he feverishly works on his new line of comic books, his desire to escape again by jumping off the said building. Clay too has his share entrapment: his sexual orientation, the marriage he falls into out of duty and as an escape from homosexuality, the dead-end jobs at various publishing houses after the magic of Kavalier & Clay has run out, the public inquisition into his sexual preferences for creating his superheroes with young male wards (even Batman and Robin are not spared here). In the end, the love of a good woman and her son conquers all, our two heroes find their niche, and there is a hint of the triumphant reincarnation of Kavalier & Clay.
I liked several aspects of this novel: the snippy and witty dialogue, the creativity of the young artists locked in a garret coming up with amazing storyboards, their self-deprecating humour, "I didn't know they were making detectives out of Jews," the footnotes in various sections which read like factoids and lend a sense reality to this work of fiction. There are bold extensions into the real world as well, when the legal wrangling of real-life competitors in the comic book industry is brought into the mix, and when the author comments on the personal grooming of Gala Dali or observes that Orson Welles smells like Dolores Del Rio - I guess one is allowed to take license with dead people!
What I did not like was the elaborate set-ups, the stories within stories that are "told" by a rather didactic and pompous omniscient narrator to bring us up to speed on what had taken place during a time gap. The prose is clunky and littered with heavy doses of information on the history and mechanics of the comic book industry. Much of this could have been cut out to create a tighter novel. The author himself sums up this vilified art form (which has re-emerged as the more dignified "graphic novel today) as "the inspirations and lucubrations of five hundred aging boys dreaming as hard as they could for fifteen years, transfiguring their insecurities and delusions, their wishes and their doubts, their public educations and their sexual perversions, into something that only the most purblind of societies would have denied the status of art" - need he have said more?
Excesses and digressions notwithstanding, I liked the story. This is story-telling at its peak; and in the end, great novelists are great story tellers.

The Rise of Marvel Comic Movies

Remember back in the day, when you would stay on your best behavior all week so you could rush your mom to the comic book store to get the latest pack of Marvel trading cards. The marvel comics have always been popular. But then for a short period marvel trading cards was the thing. The marvel trading cards was a quick way to familiarize yourself with cool new characters that you had not seen before. Marvel artist such as Jim lee have always been able to captivate our interest with creative eye catching graphics. Now its all about marvel comics movies.

Marvel comics first leaped onto the big screen with Captain America in 1944 .But that was when they were called Timely Comics; seventeen years before they adopted the Marvel title and before their super heroes had super powers. There was a major gap in producing fan based movies. Then around 1994 the first Fantastic Four Movie was born. But everyone wanted to know when the really cool marvel characters were going to enter into the realm of live action movies and with cooler special effects.

That was when marvel comics movies took a turn and actually started producing movies under their own studio. In 1998 Blade hit theaters, a superhero that probably was not in everyone's top ten, but the movie was done rather well. Two years later everyone's favorite, X-men, kills the box office. Now we were on a roll. The Amazing Spiderman movie draws fans from all over in 2002. The great thing about this movie was that the webs actually shot out of his hands; unlike the known story where Peter Parker only posses the knowledge to make web formula. And the legacy continues with many other great movies: Daredevil(2003), Hulk(2003), Punisher(2004), a much more impressive Fantastic Four(2005), and the invincible Iron Man(2008). There are new marvel movies hitting theaters each year. Fans may be wondering what upcoming marvel movies to expect in the future. Well it looks like marvel definitely has its hands full for the year to come. There has been word of upcoming marvel movies including "Thor God of Thunder".
