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

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
Prepare yourselves appropriately, because this is happening.
Batgirl is getting a relaunch by Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Freakin’ Tarr. You know, your actual favourite artist who drew the Bosozoku Sailor Scouts? SHE’S DRAWING BATGIRL. I’ll calm down… eventually?!
Shit does this mean I gotta start reading DC again?
IDW is doing a post-Star Trek: Countdown, post-Star Trek Into Darkness (noodle those, won’t you), alternate-timeline Deep Space Nine crossover mini-series featuring Q. Insert geekosexual orgasmic hyperbole here.
First issue dropped today and it was loooooovely.
The very first thing I did, ever, was read Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, issues 1-75, in my grandfather’s rocking chair at the cottage, without ever getting up, sometime around about the end of 2002. This isn’t actually true of course; it wasn’t the first thing I did (by a longshot), and I’m fairly sure I’d read at least the first dozen issues before I got to the cottage, and I have no frickin’ idea what year this happened in. But longtime tederick.com readers may recall that, at some point in my funnybook apprenticeship shortly after the turn of the century, Matty Price handed me a stack of Sandman and said: “Yes boy, you’re ready.”Read more
These wonderful ladies were playing a game of brimpception with us, so, how could we not take it to the next level?
The printing of this cover was for one hundred copies and sent only to them. If you want one, it’s allll up to Juliette & Heather: @& @
This was the hardest thing to keep secret, guys. Matt and I have been looking forward to this day for SO LONG.
We love you guys.
Overachieve on two counts, 1) the thing itself, and 2) “brimpception.”
Bonus Mamo! Price has finally seen Captain America and reviewed the relevant documentation, and has determined that there’s nothing wrong with DC/Warner Brothers’ franchise development strategy after all. Brown, as you can imagine, is firmly Team Marvel/Disney. Conversation ensues. Join us!
