Dropping The Axe
I haven’t figured out if it’s worse to be Frank Miller this week, or on the creative team of a low-selling Marvel title.
Indeed, it’s been a rough week at the House of Ideas, with several series getting the axe, including Ghost Rider, Black Panther and the above-mentioned X-23. While many will look at this as a negative, my optimistic side hopes that we will finally learn the true origins to X-23 (also mentioned above).
The other thing I’ve always found amusing is “Department K,” especially being Canadian. The government doesn’t have enough money to build proper roads, yet somehow the export of logs and maple syrup were enough to fund a top secret research station to experiment on mutants.
To be fair, if I ever got into politics, that would be basically be my platform.
