A few months ago, the DC press machine was hard at work telling whoever would listen that J Michael Stracynski was taking over both Superman and Wonder Woman titles. According to them, if Jesus himself came down from the heavens and demanded to write Superman, the answer would be ‘No. JMS is doing it.’.
And yet, here we find ourselves, barely 4 issues later, with the announcement that JMS is leaving the title behind to focus on self contained Graphic Novels. Whether this is the real reason, it took me back a few years when JMS left the Spider-Man title, and Marvel.
Is history repeating itself? Is Dan Didio about to pull a Quesada and Retcon Superman and Wonder Woman beyond recognition?
But wouldn’t it be amusing if they did?
Today’s page was done by pencilled by Mark Robinson:
Mark Robinson wants you to believe he is simply a human that makes his living drawing funny books. Indeed, it is the front he puts up for the world to see but let us look at the facts. His name is Mark A Robinson, the first 3 letters of which spell out most of the planet named MARS. His blogspot, http://marsisalientechnology.blogspot.com/ eludes to the fact that he may well be “alien technology”. His artwork has been known to make readers’ jaws hang open as though unhinged because of his ability to make two dimensional renderings of people appear as though they’re moving on the page, a skill rarely mastered by even the greatest of homosapien artists. Finally, he has publicly stated that there should be “More Laser Beams”, though to whom he speaks and why can only be guessed at.
He may want you to believe that he’s just a comic book artist from Philly but until its finally proven to be truth I will remain skeptical.
We’ll see you on Wednesday, folks, we’ve got a good week lined up for you.
