Next to JMS and Peter David, Kevin Smith is probably my favorite comic
writer, when he actually writes comics (not to say that I don't love Bendis
and Johns and all the other books I buy). As much as I love the guy, and as
much as his movies have been a part of my life for ten years, I can't stand
waiting four to five months between issues. The last two issues of
Spidey/Black Cat won't be seen for a while, and Marvel hasn't even solicited
the last three issues of DD: The Target. And Kev was supposed to take over
writing the main Spidey book *and* a new Black Cat ongoing. But the man is a
movie maker first and foremost, and I can respect that.

Hey Joe, when are we going to see the Squadron Supreme book?

>Hey Joe, when are we going to see the Squadron Supreme book?

The first three scripts are in, have been for a while, and we're now well into
pencils on issue two.  The book is set to debut July 16th.

It's really pretty spiffy so far.
