Just back from call of duty 2 online and had some mad notions. I woke up two nights ago and thought of something as big and as simple as Civil War for the HCU and spent two hours during the night writing it all down.

I'm obviously not going into details, but this is so bloody simple, screws with nobody, could be explained to a 4 year old and would ramp up HC's sales as much that little Civil War book is working for Marvel. It would spin off into me doing HOT STUFF with Maleev and RICHIE RICH with Bagley and I worked out a cracking line-up of creator pals for all the other books this would influence. I said I was only doing a Marvel crossover if they let me rethink the whole MU and rejig a lot of books that needed a face-lift (some huge characters selling nothing for 5 years now). Similarly, I'd only do this if HC let me go the whole hog and, although I have no relationship with HC, I'm under exclusive for almost 2 more years.

But these notes have been filed and this thing, if anything, will work BETTER a couple of years down the line. It's incredibly exciting. I already had about 70 issues of RICHIE RICH loosely worked out and a first eighteen months on HOT STUFF, but it all came together perfectly for me over the holidays. The end of the decade just got very exciting.

Stealing from Millar? I thought you were better from that.

You've broken my heart.

But what about Casper, damnit? That calls for a JMS/McNiven blockbuster event!

If there's a crisis in the HCU, Richie Rich must be pulling the strings. There's no way you'd have that much money for that long without going bad.

This is the best parody I've seen in a while.

Now get cracking on Hot Stuff. That book would kick ass.

When Jackie Jokers is shown sodomizing Little Lotta, you're going to be in big trouble.

if that's the case, then you look at nothing but sucky-ass parody threads. (no disrespect, bmb, but you're funnier than this, man!)

Presumably a version where his identity is revealed to the public?

Oh great, now Hot Stuff is going to turn all talky-talky with nobody doing anything for big decompressed story arcs.

I want to see him put on the diaper and get involved in some ACTION, dammit!!!!!

Holy fuck, no cut and paste? On a Wednesday, too!

Bendis, definitely do "Planet Terry"

http://www.littlestuffedbull.com/images/comics/planetterry10.gif

It's technically Star comics, but Warren Kremer did do the art, so that should count for something. Plus, it was published under a Marvel imprint, and it would totally piss off that cantankerous Mr. Ellis.

If I were editor in chief of Marvel I'd prefer my writers talk about Marvel characters instead of our competitor--
