So excited about this, thanks to everyone, thanks to Annie Koyama and Ed Kanerva!
I’m excited for this.
Was really happy to see there’s a whole Wrenchies comic by popgunwar (my favorite comic of the year, thus far!) exclusively up on Tor.com.
The Gentry is representative of the worst of the comics industry. Lord Broken, a demonic house loaded with eyes and composed of haphazardly stacked stories, can clearly stand for a distorted Marvel, “the House of Ideas.” Note that artist Ivan Reis has chosen for each story to be thinner and less stable than the last, perhaps a nod to Marvel’s continued mining and refining of the work of Stan and Jack, producing weaker results with each incarnation—broken visions. Intellectron, a bat-like figure with one eye, is clearly the worst of DC—a single vision dependent on references to Batman—dark and myopic.
Into this. Expanding on this idea, would this make Dame Merciless a stand-in for Vertigo? A hollow-eyed, gaunt goth woman wrapped in rags?
