Although Clint Eastwood's newest flick Changeling has been getting blah reviews and doing double-blah business—earning under a half-million bucks on the same weekend Saw Vcarved over 30 million—comic book fans might be interested in one of the film's key creators.

It turns out that J. Michael Straczynski, who penned the disappointing thriller, has been a comic book writer for the past 20 years, creating stories for Thor, the Silver Surfer, and the Fantastic Four.

However, the greatest number of tales Straczynski has spun are about everyone's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, beginning with a run on The Amazing Spider-Man from 2001-2007.

Changeling is the true story of grisly 1928 murders that took place in Los Angeles. Critics haven't been kind to the film's star either, accusing Angelina Jolie of wild overacting in a way that befits—well, a comic book.
