I enjoy a good comic book movie as much as the next American male. That said, I have never watched a comic book movie that talks so much and says so little.

‘Sin City’-style cinematography, several fight scenes, a naked Eva Mendes , and Samuel L. Jackson couldn’t even save it.

I damn near spent ny New Year’s Eve passed out in a theater, and I wasn’t even drunk.

‘Howard the Duck’ was better than this.

 This juicy bit of historical revisionism comes from about 360 miles due east of my chair, in the burg of Newport News, Va., named in part after Captain Christopher Newport, the skipper of the seagoing part of the first Virginia Company expedition to what became Jamestown.

 Confused? Bored? Hold on because it starts to get funny shortly.

Christopher Newport University (named after guess who? No, not Burton Cummings . . .) recently dedicated a 24-foot statue of Captain Newport at the university’s main entrance.

Now for the funny part . . . .
