Two debt-ridden comic shop owners discover a rare superhero comic that could be the solution to all of their financial woes in this independent comedy. Deadhead Comics is in dire financial straits; unless owners Jazz and Wolf can pay their landlord £5,000 quick, the shop will close its doors for good. Things start to look up for the desperate duo, however, when the debut issue of "Electric Man" mysteriously appears on their crowded shelves. With a going price of £100,000 it might just be their key to financial freedom. But when word of the prized comic gets out, every thug and comic geek in the city begins scheming to get their hands on it. Meanwhile, when Wolf's girlfriend enters the picture, the situation really starts to get out of hand.
A cult classic in the making, Electric Man really defied my expectations of what a micro budget movie could do. Most films of this nature would be all dialogue – and the nonstop banter is definitely one of the movie’s highlights – but Electric Man really goes above and beyond in terms of action sequences. Even a small character-driven comedy can benefit from the addition of a bike chase. The film is full of so many colorful characters but Jennifer Ewing’s Lauren McCall definitely steals the show. Electric Man was a surprisingly fun-filled look at the unexpectedly chaotic lives of comic book collectors.
