Sinbad Comic

Join Sinbad and his merry men as they embark on a dubiously-conceived quest to foil a dubiously-conceived but probably evil plot by the evil vizier Jaffar! Sinbad Comic is a screen-cap comic based on the incredible, incomparable, and inexplicable 1989 Lou Ferrigno film, Sinbad of the Seven Seas.

Sinbad Comic is currently on hiatus but will return on March 29, 2018.

jj: Now you have to find the movie and check it out. The strip probably plays better when you know the movie. Glad you like it!

OMG, I am just discovering this comic strip, it is great!
Sounds like Alina is channeling Gracie from Miss Congeniality.
I never knew Lou Ferrigno did a Sinbad (emphasis on the bad) movie. This is HIGH-larious!

I think her comment about perpetual french kissing is perhaps the sexiest idea I have ever heard someone come up with.

That, and, ewwww...

Alina. Is. Terrifying.

Some comics come about because I had an idea for them and found the pictures. Here, I found the pictures and had to come up with the idea. The only reason this comic exists is because I had some frames of Alina's legs. I thought, "Hey, Alina's legs," and wondered what to do with them. (Some of the lines would have found homes in different comics, though, if not here.)

Scots: Thanks. Actually, this wasn't a scene at all, but a collection of frames from different parts of the movie. I discovered that individual Jaffar/Alina scenes were too static -- not enough camera angles or kinds of facial expressions -- to reconstruct a dynamic scene.

In this case, the very first frame of Jaffar is from the very first shot we ever see of him, when the mother is introducing all the characters. I suspect that one shot was actually lifted from footage shot for the final confrontation, though, when Sinbad breaks into his lair and starts issuing threats.

The second close-up of Jaffar comes after Soukra has arrived, and they're standing side-by-side as they look at Alina. Jaffar starts incanting stuff and making some good expressions in the process. Great though that final shot of Jaffar is, I can't remember where it came from. Probably the end again.

The gleeful shots of Alina actually also come from the end, when she's watching Sinbad break out of Jaffar's light-beam cage. The leg shots come from the very first time we see her tied up in that thing: the camera starts at her feet and pans up her body. I already used snippets of this pan and pieced them together in Episode #51.

It's dangerous to borrow shots from later in the movie, because that means I have less to work with once I catch up to those points. But I have a general idea of where I'm going, so hopefully it'll work out.

Sam, I find it utterly amazing how you can completely turn a scene on its head and make it change into the *exact opposite* of was actually on-screen. This was the scene in which the princess was blathering on and on about how Ali was going to rescue her, yes? Classic. You, sir, are a genius.
