Happy Fred Van Lente Day, Everybody!

It’s that most wonderful time of the year – Fred Van Lente Day!

This year, we’ll have a few special Van Lente Day treats for you, including a chat with Mr. Fred Van Lente himself!

Come back to the front page of the blog at 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern to find the link to the chat room where Fred will be gracing us with his presence this year! Last year, Fred told us all some interesting information (including the death of Hercules!!), so who knows what he’ll dish about this year?

Happy Fred Van Lente Day, everybody!!

Did you do previous year’s chat rooms at earlier times? I don’t think I’ll be able to make it to this one because of the time difference here in Europe.

Yes, but only because last year Fred Van Lente Day fell on a Sunday.

Oh dear. It’s Fred van Lente day.

Ugh, don’t encourage him.

I can just see out next conversation:

FRED: So how was YOUR fake internet holiday?! Oh that’s right, YOU dont have o-
ME: SHUT YOUR F*CKING MOUTH.

Five years of this. Five. Years.

Never mind, I’ll just get back to drawing this awesome FVL written script. Carry on…

For those with Marvel Digital Comics Unlimted membership interested, I compiled a special collection of everything they’ve got available that he’s written. Fred is probably my favorite writer at Marvel between his work on Machine Man, Hercules and all of the wacky villains he’s touched during his period at Marvel. Hope he sticks around for a good long while.

“…and all of the wacky villains he’s touched during his period at Marvel.”

I think it’s safe to say that part came out a little off than intended, which is what I get for not reading things over before post them. D’oh!

Geez, it’s that time of year again already?

I wonder how long he’d been sitting on the Town full of Hitlers story.

Happy FVL day! Can FVL get his own previews yet? Tired of searching through marvel and dc solicits. Just give me the FVL previews please! :P

The taskmaster mini is great!

Hard to believe, but when I first began to frequent this site, I didn’t even know who Van Lente was. Now, he’s one of my favorites.

I fucking LOVE Fred Van Lente Day.
