Links with the Quickness

Just a few notes before these stories become completely irrelevant. I hate when people just present a list of links as an article, so I’ll be sure to give you my thought, brief they may be.

Ellen Page in talks to play Tara Chace in a Queen and Country film.

Love Queen and Country. Love Ellen Page. But I’ll believe it when I see a trailer. And for all of our sakes, I hope it turns out better than Whiteout did.

All-New Marvel Now Titles

Marvel is prepping their second wave of Marvel Now! titles. That’s fine. Hopefully, there are some new fun titles I can start reading. But here’s the line that really got me: “Select .NOW! titles will also come with a digital code for the entire first collection of that series absolutely free!” Now that I dig. A free digital trade for buying a $3-4 issue? That’s smart. I’d pick up almost anything for that.

Grant Morrison thinks Batman killed the Joker at the end of The Killing Joke

Here’s the thing. Maybe Grant Morrison is right. And maybe that’s what Alan Moore wanted to depict. But let’s be honest. All that stuff really did happen to Barbara Gordon, so the story happened. And the Joker is still alive, so he couldn’t have been killed. Unless that was the real Joker and everything we’ve read since then has been an actor portraying the Joker!

Yes, I’m kidding.

I hope.

That’s all I’ve got for now, but come back soon. I have some ideas bubbling.
