Following Films Podcast episode 36: Is Marvel ruining Hollywood?


This week Shawn Pryor and Chris Maynard talk about Marvel's ever expanding influence over modern studio films and ask the simple question, is Marvel ruining Hollywood?

Shawn has a Kickstarter for his latest comic book Cash & Carrie please support the project here.


Cash & Carrie is a comic book about two middle school detectives. Dallas Cash is an investigator and tenacious techie who believes in the supernatural, and Inez Carrie is an investigator as well as the captain of the wrestling team who bases her crime solving skills in realism.

Together, they are best friends who attempt to solve mysteries for schools all around the world.
Inspirations for this all-ages comic book include Disney's animated series Fillmore, Scooby Doo, and the X-Files.

 In their debut comic book, the strange disappearance of a school mascot, Misty the Goat, has left a small town without answers. Luckily junior high school friends, Dallas Cash and Inez Carrie, are on the case! With the help of a few friends and some intriguing clues, they narrow down the list of possible suspects... or did Misty magically vanish into thin air? If there's a mystery to be solved, look no further than Cash and Carrie!


Kickstarter provides the best opportunity to get the first Cash & Carrie comic book into the hands of those who want a copy.

In March, Shawn tabled at a comic book convention in Dayton, OH and printed 25 copies of Cash & Carrie to test market it, because he didn't know what kind of audience it would have.

Cash & Carrie sold out on the FIRST DAY.

During and after the convention, for weeks Shawn had people contacting him via social media asking him how they could get a copy, and instead of trying to print a few copies at a time and have people fight for them, he decided to work with the co-creators and other talented folks to add bonus material and other goodies to give you the opportunity to get something exclusive that you'll only be able to get through this Kickstarter.

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.
