I’ve been working for the last week or so on the next storyline of The Big Crunch. What I thought was going to be a longer one-shot has turned into a full-length story with a brand-new character that I think deserves a larger stage. So, I thank you for indulging me while I perfect the script and can’t wait to share another part of Thanova with you. I’ll begin the art later this week, and I’ll tease the story with this: you’re about to be introduced to the galaxy’s largest online social network. See you soon.
Look, I know you don’t need me to recommend the Avengers movie to you. If you’re reading this, you’re probably a comics fan. And if you’re a comics fan, you already know that the Avengers movie is nerd mecca. But I’m going to say it anyway: go see The Avengers. I haven’t had a movie take my breath away in a long time, and this one left me breathless.
Mark Ruffalo deserves every decibel of resounding praise he’s received for his portrayal of Bruce Banner and the Hulk. This was the first time in a Marvel film when I felt like Banner and Hulk were the same person, made possible I’m sure by the new motion capture technology introduced by Avatar and the impeccable character rendering based on Ruffalo’s features.
Ruffalo has said in interviews that to play the Hulk, he channeled the rage of a 10-year-old, who is constantly being told how to behave in a social context but simply wants to give way to his impulses. And when you see Banner’s first transformation, and the trembling anger of a child amplified by the Hulk’s brutal, simian face, it’ll send chills down your spine.
