Warren Ellis is my favorite goddamn comic book writer of all time. Granted, I haven’t followed him as closely the past couple of years. But, that’s more about my failing to read any comics. That said? Ellis writing a T-Rex Batman may be just the juice needed to power my ass back into a funny book shop.
Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch are reteaming for ‘Batman’s Grave’ and I really need to get back into comics
I’ve been feeling the itch, lately! The itch to read comics on the regular. And, if that itch wasn’t already flaring, this news certainly gets it going. Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch are teaming-up once again, this time for Batman’s Grave.
John Carpenter is writing a Joker one-shot for DC’s Year of the Villain. I am horrifyingly excited. Get it? Terrible pun!
John Carpenter is writing a Joker one-shot for DC. John motherfucking Carpenter! Am I going to read it? Questionable. Am I excited it exists at all? Hell yes.
A ‘Spider-Man’ comic miniseries is coming from J.J. Abrams and his son. Yeah, his son. Insufferable times two.
Nothing like a nice, young-ass shit head getting a break into comics because of his fucking insufferable dad. Just look at that fucking smug face.
Wait, Frank Miller is providing art for Tom King’s Batman run? Please, please let it be more than cover work.
Stan the Man has sloughed the mortal coil at the age of 95.
Sandman is coming back late this year in a big way. Neil Gaiman and DC Comics have announced that there’s going to be a whole Sandman Universe imprint.
Ta-Nehisi Coates is writing ‘Captain America’ starting on the Fourth of July and I don’t know what to think
Yo, I don’t know what to make of this. I love Ta-Nehisi Coates’ prose. I didn’t love his run on Black Panther. And putting him on Captain America? Seems equal parts intriguing and intentionally provocative. What does this add all up to? Me confusingly buying the first issue at the very least.
‘Back to the Future’ getting a manga courtesy of the ‘One-Punch Man’ artist. This is so oddly fucking cool
What the fuck? Thanks to friend of the site Jerkface for bringing this to my attention. But, again. What the fuck? This is such a goddamn odd confluence of things that I enjoy, that I’m just going to lean into it.
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.
