"Gwenship."





The tag for him is "I heart Man-Wolf," and I still totally do. I don't know if I could tell you the last time he's appeared in proper Marvel continuity though, so like Gwenpool, I figured he was fair game! I think when he appeared in the 2005 She-Hulk book John might have referred to himself as "Stargod," which seems a proper pompous thing to call yourself. I'm not sure he still would, though. Would he?

I did a wee bit of searching, to see if maybe Bill Sienkiewicz might've done a variant cover or something for Gwenpool--he did the cover for the '89 Alf Annual, so it wouldn't be the weirdest thing he's ever done; but didn't find any yet. (There was a Jim Mahfood one that seem very Sienkiewicz, though!)

Anyway, like a lot of these strips, the dialog has to do the heavy lifting; especially for an action sequence I couldn't possibly manage with a space shuttle, several astronauts, and a Dire Wraith. Big thanks to Blog for ROM fans who aren't dicks, who had the scan of ToyFare (still missed!) covering Toy Biz (also missed, sometimes) hyping their unreleased Dire Wraith figure. That little blurb also mentions the only alien figure they had planned that did see release, the Meegan from the Silver Surfer line; who we have of course used for these strips...about four years ago now...

Well, this all makes perfect sense, when it comes to comics.

Ha! Best one yet. You know you really should consider making those Gwenpool adventures the new side strip for awhile. Why not, right? Well besides budget restraints and all, ha ha.

So jealous of that Man-Wolf/Stargod figure too.

Poor Marc. If it ever gets out that he's this easy to convince, everybody and his momma is gonna' try and convince marc that Khnoshu's talking to him to get him to do stuff.

You know, that sounds like a series of strips to me just about that.

Really nailed her dialogue too.
Looking forward to what's in store for us next week.

I concur. More Gwenpool, harrumph. And can't go wrong with Dire Wraiths either.
