Phil Noto is too talented.
Poe Dameron got himself an ongoing comic book series coming down the pipe, courtesy of Soule and Noto. I don’t know if I’ll be checking it out, cause Christ, I can barely keep up with what I’m “actively reading” these days. But any comic book featuring Phil Noto artwork is tempting.
We live in a time when Phil Noto is drawing a Chewbacca mini-series. An absurd time. An unbelievable time. A glorious time.
I’ll say this: I can’t complain about Marvel’s upcoming Secret Wars/Battleworld bullshit. Not anymore. Not with how many dope comic series it is generating in the face of the MARVEL OMNIVERSE smashing together. The latest dope announcement? Runaways lives again!
Fuck to the yiggity yes. Lame intro? Fuck you! I rule this roost with mediocrity and stupidity! Anyways. There is a Black Widow monthly coming, and the team behind it is stacked with wunder-prowess. Nathan Edmondson? Check. Phil fucking Noto? Check. Underlined. Starred.
Hit the jump for a look at the first cover and more details.
Okay, I don’t know if it is technically an Episode VII rendition of Luke Skywalker by Phil Noto. What I do know is that it is a gorgeous rendition of an older Skywalker by the brilliant artist. I can’t get enough.
The name is a command, but this jib-joint is a commune. We put on our comfy clothes. Right now I’m wearing sweatpants, black socks, a cheesy pop culture t-shirt. We sit in a circle. Capri Sun will be given to all. Then we talk about the comic books we’re buying this week. Sharing is caring. No belligerence, no snark. Rub my belly. It’s warm, isn’t it? That’s because it is powered by my love for you, my comic book brethren. If you can’t keep the PMA you’ll be jettisoned to the dungeon, to dick-wrestle labia monsters with teeth and ill intent.
Don’t know what comics are coming out? Here’s a list.
Phil Noto, awesome as always.
