Itwas May 1997. The state-of-the art destination "The Worley Wide Web"was running full-tilt, pulling in over 2 visitors a day and serving up animpressive collection of cat pictures and links to sites that were better thanit. It was the brainchild of young Rob Worley who, quite frankly, had no ideawhat he was doing.
The world ofcomic book movies was just heating up then. There were exciting future-classicson the horizon like Spawn, Batman and Robin and Steel.Rob found himself addicted to outlets that talked about these movies. Placeslike Ain't-It-Cool-News, Zentertainment,"Marvel Vision" magazine and RobAllstetter's venerable Comic Book Reporter Line phone-in update!
Sadly, there wasno single resource tying the comic book movie news together in one place. Worleymade it his mission in life to summarize the reports into one database and lo: Comics2Film(a subsection of a subsection of "The Worley Wide Web") was born!
