It's about that time again.....

What's up people?
Today's nw skit is actually current/contemporary since it addresses the Silver Surfer getting another ongoing as part of the next wave of Marvel's Now hype machine. Do I think it'll last? Nope. Not even with the beautiful Mike Allred art, and Dan Slott behind the writing. I predict it'll fold around #12 if it last that long.
But that's just me.

Ready to have fun +Karl Disley ?


The End

Hey, like we all haven't wondered how Ben and Alicia would ever have regular sex right?
Surfer I get. It's like fucking a shiny dildo, but Ben? Fogetaboutit!!!!

My mind has always veered away at any thought regarding The Thing and sex. There are some things I just don't want to know.
It'd be nice for the Silver Surfer to keep his mag, but I agree with you, I don't think it'll last long. The editorial staffs seem to have less attention span than a three year old these days.

Dale Bagwell said...

Right? All I can say is I know this is right up Karl's alley, as well as the chick with the Thing fetish.

As far as the short attention span...they seem to be mimicking/going right along with the current ADD trend most people/kids have nowadays...and that's not exactly a good thing.

Randomnerd said...

Because as anybody will tell you, the echo game is darn annoying after two sentences.

Dale Bagwell said...

Right? Oh, and yes, can't help myself when it comes to surprising people, I sent out the newest issue of Batman 66' to ya yesterday:)

Hey, thanks for the shout-out, Dale, post my google+ page for all and sundry, why don't cha? [hey, click on it and leave a comment].
Regarding the Thing and his sexual whatevers with Alicia [good thing shes blind and dosent haveta see his rock-hard dick - literally!] we were discussing such a , er, touchy subject on my FF forum some time back and said weirdo got very hot and bothered over why the Thing shouldn't be having it off with anyone else but her, sad deluded fool that she is.
We all eventually decided that he mustve fucked her when he was Ben Grimm in human form [Alicia, that is, not the pedantic creep].
This Silver Surfer book wont last long - I bet it wont go past twelve issues, and having Allred's creepy kiddie art on the cover wont help. I was re-reading recently the classic issue where the Thing thought the Surfer was 'making time with his girl' [great phrase] and it was all a big misunderstanding [cause that NEVER happened in early Marvel, lol].
and the Thing smoking stogies...yet one more thing he doesn't do anymore in the comics. Like Nick Fury, the Thing knew how to appreciate a good cigar.

Dale Bagwell said...

@Karl: Figured you'd get a kick out of this one. Especially that girl if she ever finds this blog posting;)

Creepy kiddie art? really? I love his work myself, always have. I just don't see it helping in the long run. Didn't keep that FF title from being cancelled, but then again Fraction reducing his workload didn't help it either.

And yeah, I miss the days our Fury, Logan, and any other smoker being an adult and actually smoking. None of this PC bullshit.

Shlomo: Ha ha right?

You're nucking futs if you think it will only last a year! Hell- it's getting me to buy again after almost three! And I won't be the only one... It has been so long since he had his own title and now Allred and Slott come a'knockin' with a Doctor Who approach to the Silver freakin' Surfer! Here's to 146 issues, baby! SIX SEASONS AND A MOVIE!!!
...sure the 2000 series only went for 14- but it SUCKED.
(Realistically, and fan-boy gushing aside, though- it will probably only go for 16 issues and after a creative change up- be rebooted as a #1 again and then that will only be a mini-series. Then he'll appear in another book for awhile- like The Defenders or Guardians of The Galaxy and then that will be it for the Silver Surfer for awhile again... Until the new mega-crossover event Infinity Forever in 2015. *cough* )

Fucking The Thing would be like being penetrated by a cinder-block.

Randomnerd said...

The two sides of any fanboy/girl is moderating the enthusiasm and heart palpitations with preparing for crushing disappointment.
@Dale, thanks so much! That's becoming one of my favorite comics, not just for the nostalgia but the art is crazy cool.

Dale Bagwell said...

@King: Well it's not like I wouldn't want a new SS title to last, just with the current trend and all from Marvel, I don't have high expectations for lasting too long.
I still miss the Ron Marz/Ron Lim era of Silver Surfer though. Damn good stuff!

@Hannah: You're welcome;)

Dan W said...

Actually it's a little known fact that 'little Thing' was the one part of his anatomy not mutated by cosmic rays. Now you really get the sadness of Ben Grimm don't ya. Blad luck poster boy from the very beginning. Still it allows the odd blow to continue as ever so what you lose on the roundabout you make up fer on the swings.

I'm hoping quite a few series break the 12issue thing. Silver Surfer, Elektra, Ghost Rider and War Machine most. Sorry not Iron Patriot that name's left of lame. Surfer is one of the great concepts. And after being a supporting dude for so long here's hoping this one actually soars.

Dale Bagwell said...

@Dan: I definitely agree with you about the lame Iron Patriot name. That should've died when after Siege ended, but thanks to the very recent and very popular Iron Man 3 movie, it looks like its here to stay.

Again, with the current trend of starting, and re-starting titles to boost sales of new #1's, I don't have high expectations to for them t last past or up to 12. Shit, they're gonna' cancel Mark Waid's Daredevil run with #36, then re-launch it, so you tell me. And DD's a consistent top seller.

As for The Thing's "thing", you're probably so dead-on about that it's scary. Maybe you and that chick with the weird Thing fetish have been talking like little school girls lately;)
