It will be interesting to see if I like the issue. Seriously. My second favorite writer and my second most disliked writer are writing the same issue. What in the holy blue hell is up with that? How's this going to work? How will this read? Will I like parts of it and hate the rest? Will I blame the wrong person for something I dislike (or even like)? Sweet Mary Sunshine, this will be some experiment, eh? I know at least Doc Shallot will be curious as to the results!
> I am curious. I won't be reading the issue myself until at least next Wednesday, I didn't pick up the latest issue due to some budget constraints. Last issue, the one featuring Butterball(a character I believe you once proclaimed had to be a Slott creation) was one of my favorite comics of the year so far. Gage was the solo writer on that issue.
I think I thought Butterball was a Slott creation because I thought Slott was the solo writer on #13, not Gage. In any case, I heard Butterball was washed out, so me no see him in #14, I think. I also heard Devil-Slayer returns in #14, so I hope that is Gage's idea. : )
