It’s that time again, where I tell you what’s really grinding my gears for the week of June 12th, 2019.
Some weeks it’s mostly likes, other weeks it’s dislikes.
So what’s grinding my gears this week?
I’m really looking forward to the new Silver Surfer Black series.
I’m not to excited about Tradd Moore’s interior artwork (sorry, just not the style I really enjoy for comics) but I’m really looking forward to some more Silver Surfer stories.
I know it’s a mini-series but I hope it opens up more ongoing series because Silver Surfer deserves more story in the Marvel Universe.
Deadly Class and Happy! TV Shows Canceled
SyFy has canceled both.
Deadly Class just wrapped up it’s first season and won’t return for a second. But the news claims they’re (Sony) shopping it around for another network to pick up. Maybe there’s a chance the comics heat back up as it seems the prices are now tanking. Perhaps now is the time to buy when prices hit their lows as they could jump back up if another network picks up the show.
The same news goes for Happy! as well. Ending it’s second season, is being shopped around. Happy! was only a 4 issue mini-series so going two seasons I think is an accomplishment.
I haven’t watched any of the Deadly Class yet as I was trying to catch up on reading the issues first. As for Happy!, I loved season 1 and I had all of season 2 on the DVR, planning to binge watch the season all at once.
I’m hoping Happy! at a minimum gets picked up. It certainly set itself apart as original and creative for me.
NYCC Limited Artist Alley Booths
I get it, Javits center is under construction (seems like it’s been under construction for years) and there are limited spaces for artist alley this year but I’m sure something could be done to accommodate the artists and creators who have been going to NYCC for years to not get entirely shunned by Reed Pop.
Last year there was so much space allocated just for the signing area for the celebrities finding a hard time finding acting jobs, I swear everything I walked past the area it seemed 80% of the space was empty.
Maybe you can allow artists and creators to setup tables there, so those waiting in line to get their favorite Power Ranger 8×10 signed photograph can check out some cool creator own art while standing in line.
I’m sure something could be done but we all know why they’ll shut out the lesser known artists before trying to come up with a real solution, these artists do not make Reed Pop any money.
Anyone going to NYCC? I’d love to see how many CHU readers are planning to attend.
