Matt Fraction on ‘Hawkguy’, his career dying, and a dog saving him

Matt Fraction.

It is little secret around here that Matt Fraction ain’t just one of my favorite comic book creators. He’s a source of genuine inspiration and resiliency, and I follow his travels in ways that may be “unhealthy” and “borderline obsessive.” Okay. Whatever. So forgive me if this post really doesn’t fit in anywhere (though to be fair This Site is Me and I Am This Site). But I stumbled across this really fucking outstanding diatribe from Fraction detailing him falling into Hawkguy‘s first issue. It’s tremendous. He admits what I was sort of worrying about at the time (his career dying), once again somehow conjures tragedy into art, and continues to generally move me.

This image of the Lagoon Nebula is a whirlwind of glory

goddamn lagoon nebula!

Behold! The goddamn Lagoon Nebula! Okay, okay. It’s behind the cut. But whatever. It’s here, lurking. And would you know, that Nebula ain’t fucking around. At the center of it are two goddamn funnel clouds, each half a light-year long. Which is impressive to me, but probably not to the Universe. ‘Cause the Universe is big. #PostPadding #Obviousness

And almost as though The Stoked One could perceive our excitement, he has issued forth an application for our phones. An application that is centered around helping us be the best Rob Liefeld fans we can possibly be.

Predator

Looks like Shane Black has found his next landing spot after helming Iron Man 3 last year. The son of a bitch appears set to tackle a Predator reboot. And while I’d generally roll my eyes at the premise, it’s hard to deny Black’s talent.

TIME SINK: ‘World of Warcraft’ player reaches level cap without picking faction

World of Warcraft.

Here’s either  a) an incredible feat of gaming determination, b) the worst waste of time in WoW history, or both. I can’t imagine both the determination this required, and the amount of time that was burned accomplishing it. But to be fair, I generally do nothing myself and I have no cool claim to fame such as this.

Remender’s penning Marvel’s “AXIS” of Evil in October

Axis.

I clearly need to be paying more attention to Rick Remender’s run on Uncanny Avengers. Through no fault of his own, I’ve sort of wavered in and out of his stories. Picking them up when I remember, forgetting them most of the time like a fucking dumb ass I mean — reading the announcement of the upcoming Axis event in October was out of control. Red Skull has the telepathy of Professor X? And the powers of Onslaught? Sign me up.
