Isn’t life grand? We have the luxury to worry about comic books, movies and other nonsense in the world that doesn’t directly impact our lives.
So here I am again, here to tell you what’s really grinding my gears this week, because you know, 1st world problems suck. But I try to tell you all the things I also like as well.
Stan Lee No More Public Signings
Actually, mark this under things I like.
It’s been reported that Stan Lee will do no more public signings. We’ll see how long that lasts, we once heard that he wasn’t going to do cons anymore either, then he appeared at almost every major convention that same year.
The man is old, he needs to go enjoy life before it runs out on him. Spending all your time doing cons and events is a horrible way to live out the remainder of your life.
So vanish Mr. Lee, go enjoy what you can. You have zero obligations to keep whoring our your signature on books you never wrote and characters you didn’t even create.
Fantastic Four Covers Galore
99 Fantastic Four Covers on the wall.. 99 Covers of Four, take one down, pass it around, 98 covers of Fantastic Four on the wall..
I don’t know if there are actually 99 different covers of Fantastic Four coming out this week between the official covers and special store variants but you know what Poyo thinks of this many covers right? Phooey!
You all can likely guess what’s gonna make the drek pick this week right? Probably not even for the amount of covers either, ya’ll know how much I love picking on Slott. I’ve ruined the anticipated surprise so I’m gonna have to find another drek because this one is too obvious.
Born For One Another
Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins need to do more books together. Oh wait, they are!
Black Badge hits shelves this week from BOOM! Studios. From the team who does Grass Kings comes a new book “about a top-secret, elite branch of boy scouts tasked by the government to take on covert missions.”
Sign me up, this is something I like.
I Love Darth Vader
I don’t know why but I just love Vader. Always have, likely always will. Disney really needs to make a standalone Darth Vader movie now. The few scenes I saw him in Rogue One gave me a Vadergasm, new word I’m going to copyright and trademark.
So in Rogue One we saw the huge Vader Castle on Mustafar. In this weeks Darth Vader issue #19 we learn more about this castle. Fortress Vader storyline starts in this issue and it’s a must read for me.
Bring Back James Gunn
This occurred a few weeks back but as I didn’t want to address it then, I’ll address it now.
So James Gunn said some horrible things on twitter years ago. They went mostly unnoticed. Most probably realized he was just passing off horrible distasteful jokes. Do I agree with such jokes, no, but was this reason to fire the guy for something he said almost 8-10 years ago (sorry, can’t recall the tweets people dug up)?
Sorry, I can’t back Marvel’s firing. Gunn delivered on both Guardians of the Galaxy movies. These tweets occurred long before so I fail to see firing him now from the 3rd installment will do anything? It just makes no sense at this time.
You know, George Carlin offended me in one of his videos from 20 years ago, let’s just dig him up so we can fire him or berate him. We’ve all said stupid things in our lives, I know I have. But should I now get fired for it years later if my employer found out? No.
That’s all I got this week folks. Tell us what you’re liking and or disliking in the comments below.
