Thoughts on Comic News

By | Sunday, October 29, 2006 Leave a Comment
One thing that strikes me as interesting is that I've been running my Fantastic Four fan site for a decade now, making a point of updating it weekly for at least the last eight or nine years, and I cannot recall a single week where I did NOT have some news to post. It's a web site geared exclusively around one comic book property, and there has been something news-worthy (at least within the realm of comic books) every single week for the better part of a decade.

I mention that today because I've noticed that several of my posts this past week have been focusing on this [insert sarcasm] brilliant [finish sarcasm] Wold Newton idea I've been toying with, which only relates to comics insomuch as that would be the venue I would like to utilize the property in. And I've been focusing on this idea because, in part, I haven't seen much in the way of news that really struck me or got my brain moving this past week. There was a notice last week about Nextwave being cancelled with #12, which prompted my quick review of this week's issue, but that's been about it.

That's not to say there hasn't been any news, certainly, but nothing that really sparked my attention and/or imagination for some reason. Lullaby is moving from Alias to Abacus, but it's already switched publishers once before. There's a new Marvel video game out, but I don't play video games much anymore. Stuart Immonen will be taking over Ultimate Spider-Man after Mark Bagley, but I'd already noted his excellent work in my look at Nextwave. Moon Knight be getting a TV treatment, but it's way to early to say that it will ultimately happen, much less how it might turn out.

Maybe it's because I was already put my mental energies towards my comic idea, but I haven't seen my interest piqued by any other comic-related news this week.
