Alex De Campi was fooling around on twitter saying that all she wanted was a comic about Frank Castle and Bucky sitting on the sofa talking about bad action movies. While they cleaned their guns.
Jim Acosta volunteered to draw it.
And thus was born Hell’s Kitchen Movie Club. Sadly there has been only one episode thus far, and the promised “Hell Comes to Frogtown” episode has not appeared yet, but we’ll be anxious waiting every day until it does.
De Campi is right about Marvel needing this kind of thing. It’s a great, fresh take on the Marvel U. Marvel used to do funny self-aware comics – it’s a Bullpen tradition. More like this, please!
