Why we'll miss this Hawkeye run
io9 has a great write-up by James Whitbrook on what was so uniquely fantastic about Matt Fraction and David Aja's Hawkeye should be required reading not just for Marvel fans but for anyone looking for a story that is smart, touching, laugh out loud funny, and one of a kind.
Glad to see the writer gave a nod to Matt Hollingsworth's colors--the palette of the entire run is so perfect and thematic it deserves a round of applause all of its own.
Book 3 Cover Reveal
Have I posted this yet? I haven't posted this yet! Book 3's cover is official. I think I'm in love with it.
Current release info: August 14th for the Kindle version (available for pre-order on Amazon), all other formats due roughly the same time (we file the book for print and all four e-book formats simultaneously, but only the Kindle lets us set up a pre-order date so there's our rough idea when).
Questions? Ask below or over on the Facebook and Twitter pages and I'll do my best to answer!
In case anyone's in a really big hurry to get their hands on Book 3, "The Entropy of Everything," the Kindle preorder page just went live (yay!). If you're not a Kindle reader, never fear--the other five formats the book will be available in will all go live right around the same time. The others don't allow a preorder date option, so we're announcing this early, but paperback, Nook, Kobo and iBook will all be available right around the middle of August.
Stay tuned for details!
Superheroes as allegory
This (spoiler-y) panel came my way earlier today from Marvel's "Years of Future Past." Leave it to Colossus, who has always had one of the biggest hearts in comics, to explain the adaptiveness of human hate and its ability to hurt everyone and anyone. It's a single panel with a lot of words, but writer Marguerite Bennett deserves some serious praise for it. Unconventionally wordy for the medium, but important, and speaking volumes, and something that absolutely should be shared.
The panel can also be found here.
