Craigslist Missed Connections with Jimmy Kimmel & Alison Brie

The “missed connections” section on Craigslist is filled with messages from people who met or saw someone they were attracted to, but for whatever reason didn’t get their contact info. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we thought we could shine a light on some of these missed connections with the help of the lovely Alison Brie.

Debuting this week at NYCC, the first in a series of Hipster Redesigns of the best families in comics. First up: The X-Men.

Had a blast doing this one and loved redesigning all of the costumes. It was super complicated to color, but all in all, I’m happy with how it turned out.


Hipster Batman

Second up, debuting at NYCC this week, is the Bat-Family.

When I came up with the idea of doing a set of these, the one I was most excited to do was this one. I designed the costumes first, I did the layout first, and then I drew the X-Men piece cause suddenly the idea of doing the Bat-Family piece was terrifying. And once I had the X-Men piece done, I was still scared. It took about two to three times longer to pencil, but the coloring was faster, having learned a lot from the previous piece. Hope you dig!

  1. Happy February!

  2. Need another Lex Luthor candidate, If you want someone young lookin, get Michael Rosenbaum. Or shave Clancy Brown’s hair off.

    • Eisenberg is capable of playing the same kind of lex as rosenbaum did… neither are intimidating

    • I agree. Michael would be the perfect choice for Lex Luthor. Get rid of Jesse Eisenberg.

  3. Hipster X-Men/Batman is cool LOL.

    I’m down for a Gambit solo or maybe a Gambit/Rogue feature. Not sure about Channing Tatum, but I can be open minded about it.

    @ A. Ocasio, why are you always talking about weird sh** on the podcast? LMAO

  4. Gerry Duggan looks like Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon morphed into one person lol

  5. I thought they were going with Bryan Cranston as their Lex Luthor.

    • Nope, he was just rumoured and to be honest, I’m glad they didn’t pick him.

      He’s a good actor but not that great (saying that, I got bored of Breaking Bad midway through season 1 and was never much of a fan of Malcolm In The Middle save for the Francis parts, those scenes were genuinely funny).

      I was hoping for Joaquin Phoenix but I guess we got Jesse Eisenberg.

  6. is the warriors trailer real?is there a remake?

  7. I can see Jess doing a great Luthor, he is more then capable of making the role work.
    It’s Ledger allover again, people freaked out when he was supposed to do Joker.
    Maybe he should bulk up a tad, but acting wise he can do Lex Luthor.
    Would’ve gone wit Phoenix myzelf but Jess is gonna do just fine.

    • Why bulk up? That’s what the power suit is for.

  8. I am surprised Fox isn’t going to sue them for this, their whole First Class set-up is hipster X-Men.

  9. thank heaven we got a cool X-Men movie to look forward to, cause Batfleck vs Superman gonna suck big time!

  10. Ugh! This movie’s going to be terrible!

  11. Screw this waste of film, I wanna see Dredd 2!
