The Top-10 Weirdest and Worst Follow-Ups

The Top-10 Weirdest and Worst Follow-Ups

Article by: Witney Seibold

The following article deals with a curious phenomenon of artistic hubris that I find fascinating. When certain artists have a huge success – either a breakout hit, or a long-running classic – they are often given license to do whatever they like as a follow-up. It’s rather common for that artist to then take their newfound clout and blow it all on am oddball vanity project of epic proportions.

 

This is a list devoted to that hubris. I compiled ten amazingly weird – or just plain bad – followup projects for which power authors squandered a new sense of goodwill from studios and audiences, and I submitted it to the good people at Geekscape. You may read my findings here:

Be sure to take me to task for any omissions.
