Giamatti Columbo by johntrumbull
Giamatti Columbo

I was just reading a dumb article about TV shows that should be revived/rebooted. One of the shows on the list was COLUMBO, which is one of my sacred cows, and role that is SO tied to one actor that I don't think it could ever be done well.

Just after I thought this, Paul Giamatti popped up in a TV commercial and I thought, "Oh, hell... I'd TOTALLY watch a COLUMBO revival with him."

After batting around potential guest murders with my friends on Facebook for about two hours, I decided to see what it might look like.

Ant-Man meets Carl Spackler! by johntrumbull
Ant-Man meets Carl Spackler!
I saw one of the new stills for the upcoming Ant-Man movie and this gag immediately popped into my head. Enjoy!

I would ask if you could do a LIID of One More Day, but considering how its so well known with out bad it it, might make the idea way too obvious to do lol

I have a feeling if we did a OMD theme week, we would just get a bunch of suggestions bashing the story, and God knows there's plenty of that on the internet already. I honestly like to keep my stuff more positive and fun than that.
HeartlessSlayer Featured By Owner May 3, 2013
Makes sense, the only reason I suggested that was because I saw your take on the Sins Past story so it just made me think of OMD since JMS was involved in a way. Speaking of which, do you have any thoughts on Maximum Carnage?
johntrumbull Featured By Owner May 3, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Nope. Never read it.
