Being good to each other is so important, guys.
Sure, I could have written about the Sony / female-lead Spider-movie for Destroy All Monsters this week, but I basically would have been doing a copy/paste from last week’s article and then a search/replace on all instances of the words “Wonder Woman.”
That said, if Sony’s gonna do this, I’m never going to say no to a decent Jessica Drew movie. I have no idea how/if/when anyone could pull that off, but hey, since we’re voting*…
Meanwhile, per the image above, howsabout that Captain Marvel movie, Marvel? Surprise us! You can do fucking ANYTHING right now! Fuck shit up like the ladies suggest!**
*we’re not voting. Actually Sony might not even read this. Actually Sony might not even know this blog exists!!
**Cannot actually handle the idea of a cinematic universe where Carol and Jessica have to live on opposite sides of the hateful Sony/Disney property rights wall.
So, yeah, HOLY SHIT, we won BEST NEW SERIES at the Eisner Awards Friday night. The Eisner committee had to engrave the words “SEX CRIMINALS” on two of their trophies. I have hidden it in my home for when they realize what they’ve done and come to take it away from me.
It was a fantastic, nerve-wracking night, and jeez louise ain’t Matt Fraction the best? If it weren’t for him and his brilliant brain I’d be doodling dicks on cocktail napkins for spare change. I love that guy and can’t stress enough how great it’s been to work on this with him. He’s a great collaborator and a great friend and NO, YOU have something in your eye.
Oh, and issue seven is at the printers, printing away. No ads, all story and giant letters column. COMICS WOOOO
Things like this are what make me feel like making stuff is still worthwhile.
Make stuff, brimpers.
The news about Batgirl is awesome and I’ma let you finish but Ms. Marvel* got to the selfie thing first
*if you’re not reading this title you’re dumb
Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute - she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”
What the fuck is going on WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON
