I drew this in 2003. I had originally intended to continue with more installments taking me up to the present day but I never got around to it. Still and all... it's those years as a kid that inform movie love as an adult. When it comes to the summer blockbuster, they feel more vivid than the years that followed. Nowadays my best friends always want to go to the beach. I always want to sit in the air conditioning with a tub of popcorn staring at the screen. Hitting the beach beforehand: a pleasure but hardly a requirement.

Blogging challenge! If you have a blog share a memory of summer moviegoing from you childhood over the next few days. Let me know you did and I'll link you up in a follow up post next Tuesday, the 22nd. Consider it a warm up nostalgia exercize for Eddie Copeland's 30th anniversary of Star Wars blog-a-thon --(that's on May 25th) you will not want to miss that one.
