Yep, today’s my birthday.
You can figure out how old I am by figuring out how many columns I’ve done for She Has No Head! and then subtracting ten. I WISH! Yeah, no, it’s just the number of columns…no subtraction. Man I’m old. ANYWAY…
Inspired in part by Chad Nevett’s always fun Random Thoughts and my sincere desire not to do a big serious post on my birthday…I bring you a list of 12 comics related ways in which I would like to bend the universe to my will in honor of ME. Also, some cool shit I want people to buy for me.
Heralds #1 (of 5). Kathryn Immonen (writer). Tonci Zonjic (art). Nathan Fairbairn (colors). Jelena Djurdjevic (cover). Marvel. 32 pages. $2.99.
I have been excited for this book for months.
Tonci Zonjic’s art plus Kathryn Immonen writing, plus Emma Frost, plus She-Hulk, plus Monica Rambeau, plus Hellcat, plus Valkyrie, plus Abigail Brand in a weekly five-issue mini-series?
What could go wrong?
For once, absolutely nothing.
This book was unabashedly fun, never taking itself too seriously while still managing to present characters with accurate and compelling voices and a storyline that definitely seems to be going somewhere.
