What the fuck? Brian Marvel Bendis is no more. The writer who sort of totally fucking *is* Marvel comics has signed an exclusive deal with DC. Honestly, I’m having a little trouble wrapping my brain around this.
I don’t know why I’m excited about Marvel is finally resurrecting Jean Grey. I don’t read Marvel comics, let alone X-Men titles. But, I have always had a soft spot for the bad ass, and I’m happy to see her finally returning. Again.
Following the whirlwind of disappointing, feces-flecked news surrounding Lord and Miller being fired from Han Solo, here’s some neat news about a creator I love. Woof! Look at that run on sentence. Anyways! Yeah!
Last week, news dropped that a John Wick TV show was in the works, that would delve into the mysterious world of assassins that Wick inhabits. And I was like, eh, I don’t know, I like it being mysterious and undefined. But! It could be good. So, just cut and paste that same sentiment of mine when it comes time to ask me how I feel about a John Wick prequel comic.
How about you?
Rick and Morty. Awesome, niche television show and comic book. Firewatch. Awesome, niche video game. Why not have an installment of the former, from the minds of the latter? There ain’t no damn reason, why not!
Apparently, Greg Pak and artist Takeshi Miyazawa are kicking ass on Totally Awesome Hulk. I wouldn’t know this, because I’m a dumpster-trafficking garbage lord. I mean, man, I’m so fucking detached from the Big Two’s comic book offerings. But! But, I’m very excited for their next effort, Mech Cadet Yu.
I…couldn’t care less about this shit. Or rather, I would I could, because I’m vaguely annoyed by it, despite being out of the comic books game.
The boss-ass-fucking-team behind Vertigo’s Sheriff of Babylon is reteaming on DC’s Mister Miracle. Which, honestly, is the first news that’s enticed me to read a DC book in ages.
Marvel’s joined Comixology’s all-you-can-read Netflix-ass subscription service! Does this do anything for you?
This, this is actually enticing to me. I don’t read Marvel on the active anymore, fatigued from the perpetual #1 issues, reboots, and events. Fatigued! My nuts are wearied, existentially drained. Wearied! But, maybe Marvel can lure me back. Not dropping any SUPER MEGA EVENTS for a year-and-a-half is a good start.
