CONDORMAN by ramon perez




when i was a kid one of the first movie novelizations i read was condorman - funny thing was, i never saw the movie. the book contained a few movies stills - action sequences mainly, some villain shots, condorman fighting evil doers, and an awesome car....

my imagination ran wild!

i saw the movie probably 20 years later. it didn't hold a torch to my imagination... a little goofier than i had dream up, but fun. so in my eye, condorman's kinda cool, or at the very least - he's got potential. i'm a firm believer than any character no matter how lame can be made awesome, and be used to tell an exciting story.

so this is my take; a mashup of james bond and gatchaman. condorman, akin to batman, as a secret agent operative of the cia. condorman was a disney flick, and disney owns marvel, there are possibilities here....

due to time, i've put the piece up a little unfinished - there is an absent global skyline along the top, and the dash of colour i wanted to add... i'll try and tackle that later next week. but for now, i thought i'd share....
