Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
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.
“It took me some time to figure out that love is in the details. It’s in the books and records and the stereo and the convertible. Love is always in the details. And that’s where the pain is too.” (John Crowley, from Aegypt)
As the entire comics reading world knows by now, Greg Rucka has decided to leave DC.
Before I start point by pointing this for myself, let me first offer congratulations to Mr. Rucka for doing what he wants, what he feels is right, and what he believes will reward him most (in a myriad of ways). I couldn’t wish success on any writer more (not that he needs it) and I’m thankful for his sake, and ours, that he has the freedom to go and do exactly what he wants to do whether that be prose novels, screenplays, comics, and everything in-between.
You don’t know exactly when you fall in love with someone, do you? There isn’t that sudden moment when the music stops and you look into one another’s eyes for the first time, or whatever. Well, maybe it’s like that for some people, but not me. I had a friend who told me she fell for a boy when she woke up in the morning and realized he didn’t snore. It doesn’t sound much, does it? Except it sounds true. (Julian Barnes, from Talking It Over)
