Wednesday night a repeat of Friday - the rains started around the end of nap time, and persisted. I was reading the Prometheus sequel comic, Fire & Stone (it’s quite good so far), so the LV-223ish gloom was appreciated, and it did better prep this time than last, with my umbrella and waterproof everything. Everyone is bleating about In & Out Burger’s four-hour layover in Toronto tomorrow, so I went to Five Guys and got myself the superior cheeseburger. And they’re here all year round, gang.
Tonight was my double feature of kill-crazy adolescent boys, Goodnight Mommy followed by Cub. I already have a generous terror of boys, having been one myself, and having been bullied by other such ones besides. (Not for a while, don’t worry.) I know what’s going on in there from both sides of the equation, and it’s nothing good.
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.
