    The best I can say about Tim Burton is that in his race against Shyamalan to see who can destroy his brand the quickest, he’s narrowly losing.

    I made a bit of Dark Shadows art a while ago, for a week straight,
    I actually really like Dark Shadows. I used to draw comic books and thought about pitching it to a comic company that licenses older television and toy properties, but I imagine now it would be a little difficult to obtain the rights… Plus I don’t really enjoy the terrible grind of drawing comics :D They should get Eddie Izzard to play Ben, he would be perfect!

    You can see it here though, at my website
