Hey kids, while you’re enjoying your turkey leftovers and getting ready to do battle on this, the Blackest of Fridays, why not make it easy and get some Gutters Books? They are still priced ridiculously low (75% off!!)and ready to ship to your door!
Now, as for today’s page:
“Hey, come into my office and read one of the most horrifying things I’ve ever written.”
In most people’s jobs, this would be a strange sentence, but around these parts it’s a pretty standard practice.
The idea of Magneto bering behind the Kennedy Assassination is actually kind of an intriguing one. It’s timely considering the 50th anniversary of the even just passed and it’s also not the most insane or improbable theory as to what actually happened that day in Dallas. It also takes our attention back to the forthcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past movie.
Much like it’s predecessor, First Class, I’m cautiously optimistic about Days of Future Past. I enjoyed First Class way more than I ever thought I would, even going as far as to say it’s probably my favourite of the X-Movies. What I liked about it though was that it stood apart from what had come before. The Patrick Stewart/Ian McKellen trilogy was what it was, and First Class was a new direction that would allow them to touch on some of the same themes and events, but in a different way. Much like the JJ Abrams Star Trek movies.
So, when I heard that they were going to tie the two “eras” together in Days of Future Past, I wasn’t quite sure if it would work (muddled and confusing continuity not withstanding). Time, of course, will tell, but I’m cautiously optimistic.
In the meantime, conspiracy theories aside, today’s page comes to us from David Namisato:
David Namisato is an illustrator in Toronto, Canada. David is currently working on two creator-owned comics, a fantasy adventure series called “The Long Kingdom” and a Japanese language comic strip called “Mark to Minna” (English: Mark and the Gang).
Have a great weekend, folks and see you back here Tuesday!
