A Sort Of Amused, Smirking Response To Hatcher’s Post About Twelve Year Olds Running Comics

by  in Comic News Comment

Or another way of describing this. Which continues Hatcher (or OG Greg, as I call him, because for a middle aged comics nerd who teaches art, dude’s street) great streak of reminding all of you young punks that nothing in comics ever changes. I think. Maybe I missremember it.

Ahem. One reason why I’ve never been able to freak out adequately about Joe Quesada giving Spider-Man a satanic divorce (beyond the great amusement I get from Spider-Man getting a satanic divorce when a normal one was deemed too controversial) is that I know that, if Marvel is still bothering to publish comics in 20 years, someone my age will revert the marriage back. Provided Joe and co. don’t do that in a year or two anyway just to appease all of the barbarians at the gate. You whiney babies ought to get a bottle some day, I guess.

Also, is there any way we can get reprints of those Engleheart Beast stories? I mean, it seems like Marvel will eventually reprint everything they’ve ever published, but could someone fast track that? Or did they when I wasn’t paying attention? If I could swing it so that Spider-Man re-married MJ, would someone help me out in getting those in print? While we’re just throwing things out there that aren’t happening until a slow month in 2012, you know.
