Next, the group talked about what’s funny – and what’s not. Turns out generally, bodily functions are funny, and pieces of people falling off is funny. “Drugs are not funny, because it’s always a you had to be there thing,” said Dorkin. “Monkeys are funny, but they’ve been played to death, like zombies.”
Fraction preemptively answered a question that gets asked quite a bit and detailed the process that Senior VP – Executive EditorTom Brevoort took to start a Cap/Thor event in between the two summer movies on Marvel’s plate. His goal was to lead off with the event keeping in mind people who may have just seen “Thor” and then transitioning into a more Cap-centric story by putting him on the front lines of a World War, reflecting somewhat the situation in the upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
We found some neat art that caught this eye. CT asked Andy Belanger for a Batman. He said it would take about 20-30 minutes and to come back. When we did, WOW! He did a seriously amazing job! He drew Batman and filled the black in with actual painter’s ink and was cool to watch. It’s on of my favorite sketches. It’s just so B&W. He was with a group and they have a comic series called “Kill Shakespeare“. We bought a single issue and they guys signed it for us. I, personally, have not read it yet, but i plan to and hubby says the trade would be a good read.
