Alright kids, let me tell you a little story about a time when our friends came together to make something special: The Jacket Movie. It follows Colton during the events of Chapter 1 and is packed with little nods (both intentional and unintentional) to other Jacket-related things. It features the songs “Beat the Devil’s Tattoo” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and “Painting Leprosy” by my friend Adam Taylor. The movie features a handful of my close friends; Adrian Uribe (Colton), Ian Long (Avery), Garry Richwine (Bill), and Luke Wright (the DOGS officer…before they were known as DOGS). It was filmed by my buddy Kyle Young, and scripted/directed by me using Jason’s original Chapter 1 comic script. Jason would of course look over the script and together we finalized what would be read for the short film.
So Happy Birthday to The Jacket as a webcomic, and to here’s to more years of continued stories at the expense of these characters that we love so much. Because without them, we’d have no story to tell. Enjoy the show and let us know what you think down in the comments. We hope the nostalgia of the film we shot years ago actually holds up.
