Good evening owls of /co/,
Lo, I was thiiiis close to just going to bed at 7 PM, but I thought of how sad all the anons would be without their evening FRANK.
>Writer/editor Mark Gruenwald originally created the Scourge in 1985 as a plot device intended to thin the criminal population of the Marvel Universe, in particular eliminating those supervillain characters he deemed to be too minor, redundant, or ill-conceived.
HIS HAIR WAS--PERFECT
Today is apparently the day the JSA debuted back in 1940, and also Roy Thomas's 75th birthday. What a coincidence!
Here's hoping DC stops dicking over the JSA soon and also reprint All Star Squadron pls
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JSA
give us a JSA book, DC
Dracula hasn't been this cool in a while
why is this so funny: https://twitter.com/ShitAccount2015
I just learned Gone with the Blastwave is toast.
yeah, he's cultivating that whole "this is hilarious I am not mad" pose but I think he actually did want to win
I felt so dirty when I loled at one of his shitty tweets
This cover reminds me of the single best page of Space: Punisher
>Dan Brereton's premiere creations are set to return in the Fall of 2015 in a brand new original graphic novel. NOCTURNALS: THE SINISTER PATH,
Remender loves gags like this one
Kickstarter isn't a publisher, so no
A lot of creators wanting to do more creator owned stuff need a boost getting the books made, and some of them manage to publish it through an actual publisher later (like Simone getting Leaving Megalopolis out through Dark Horse, and Orlando's Virgil)
perceived radical genre shift, although it's very well connected
so what's out this week and is it early?
I can stay awake for one more
dang, that's mostly relevant to my interests
yeeeah we might read the first arc of Battle Pope next
This comes out the same day so you get two doses of great books! :^)
Frank, even for you that's hardcore
Please let that be who I think it is.
Honestly, it's hard to dislike Franken-Castle. On the surface the concept is actually decent: The Punisher teams up with an obscure team of characters, the Legion of Monsters. Yeah the Frankenstein thing is silly, but so is Norman Osbourne being appointed as the director of SHIELD. The former isn't nearly as fucked-retarded. And hell, the writing is solid, so there's no problem.
let's just say that today your storyteller discovered exactly why you don't usually dig up an asparagus bed
>In an effort to set the series [DP 7] apart from other team books, Gruenwald wrote an analysis of 14 superhero groups in categories such as age makeup, origin, purpose, and budget, and deliberately constructed the group to differ from these 14 established groups in every category.
fucking madman Gru!
>If the clump is relatively small, you might be able to loosen and lift it with the spading fork. An older mass, however, will often have to be pried out with the mattock, and a really large and/or overcrowded section may require a mattock, a crowbar, and all of the ingenuity you can muster.
I still maintain that this book runs off of the Anti-Death Equation. Apokalips is just a red herring, the whole book is just a shambling zombified husk of its former self, doomed to stay afloat with middling 30k sales in perpetuity.
I'm going to fuck off to sleep early, thanks for reading, good owls, and more tomorrow
I have yet to meet a person who actually dislikes this particular Punisher run. I kinda wish this would have been his new Status Quo for a bit longer. It's nice seeing Frank fight for to protect people.
I love that we don't even get a half-assed explanation of why frank has a god-damn dragon, it's just assumed that it works out that way. So when Frank says he's going alone, that doesn't include the dragon amongst the monster society?
I love how frank has a half-smile right there, like proof that he fully believes in his cause and somewhat enjoys what he does. Sure he's plenty grim and kill-y but dammit sometimes ya gotta love what ya do, chief
When I first started reading comics about a year and a half/2 years ago, I remember seeing him show up every so often and killing some random fuck, mostly in one of those "mini" comics at the end of an issue. Sometimes you wouldnt even see him, just a bullet flying from the fucking skyline into the sky and killing some asshole U.S. Agent was flying off someplace on those scooters. It was so bizarre. I recognized a lot of the villains who were revived in this run, but I never can across the comics where the Scourge showed himself formally.
May be part of the reason why I liked this whole Punisher volume, between that, the blood stone, and some of the monsters, I felt like I had enough prior knowledge to fully enjoy it.
Or in other words "I understood that reference"
