Not Offalon July 31, 2013 at 10:08 pm
Remember last May, when Amanda issued a mea culpa that she had missed the month-old news that guts-’n-taint cook Chris Cosentino -
Rob, he is a chef, who cooks offal. -Amanda
Amanda, he cooks testicles. Which means I agree on “offal” so far as it is pronounced, but I think you got the spelling wrong. -Rob
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah – we reported back in May, 2012 that Cosentino was gonna do a Wolverine one-shot. It is now that last day of July, 2013. That book has finally come out. You know, like Anthony Bourdain’s Get Jiro! graphic novel from last year! Except this is a simple standard comic book, and nobody from Marvel invited Cosentino to the San Diego Comic-Con this year, despite living in the same state!
My point is that, two weeks separated from SDCC and just before the Boston Comic Con, we have a comic book that spent roughly a third as much time in editorial as it took Michaelangelo to paint the fucking Sistine Chapel. Except I think in the long run, it will turn out that the only person who took a picture of this comic book will have been me.
Let’s just say that Amanda will be the one reviewing this book… but the fact that there is a new book means that there is a new comic, and new comics means that this…
…means the end of our broadcast day.
But off-week or not, there’s still some pretty cool stuff there, huh? There’s a new issue of Scott Snyder’s The Wake, the final issue of Grant Morrison’s Batman Incorporated, a new issue of Injustice: Gods Among Us by writer Tom Taylor and Justice League International artist Kevin Maguire, a new issue of Kieron Gillen’s Uber, and a bunch of other cool stuff! And there is also Cosentino’s Wolverine!
But you know how this works: before we can talk about them, we need some time to read them. So while that happens (and while Amanda presumably reads about Wolverine being The Best There Is At What He Does, And What He Does Is Shank And Apply Heat To Horse Nipples)…
…see you tomorrow, suckers!
