Electric Man (2012)
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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Electric Man
If you're prepared to overlook its financial shortcomings, then you'll enjoy what is an entertaining and knowing little yarn.
Here is a film with humour and energy and heart, made by people whose primary objective appears to have been to make a movie they themselves would like to see.
Utterly dismal, can't-quite-believe-it's-really-this-bad Scottish comedy that's inept on every conceivable level.
The film's main problem is that it's a good 25 minute short padded out to an hour and a half.
It's difficult to imagine that this will be of much interest to anyone, apart from the people who made it.
Feels more like mates mucking around with a camera than a proper movie.
The film has the knockabout feel of a kids' TV show on CBBC, which is no bad thing, but the comedy doesn't quite come together.
Low-budget caper about a stolen comic book that is, with the best will in the world, unfit for human consumption.
