So What Is Brian Bendis And Bryan Hitch’s New Comic Project?

Bryan Hitch, recent new dad, was talking on Twitter on being a bit tired and down. Brian Bendis offered some words of support, from which the following exchange emerged.

HITCH: don’t worry, it wasn’t your stuff that was killing me! It’s all those nasty little things you put off catching up

BENDIS: i knew that. my script is awesome :)

HITCH: The most fun I’ve had ‘directing’ characters and dialogue since Ultimates, actually.

HITCH: that phone call in the second scene has come through powerfully

BENDIS: awesome!! i have given more thought to how to write for you than would even believe! so excited to see it.

HITCH: Likewise, I’ve had to think harder about how to run at your scripts; keep essential Bendis but blend some Hitchy to it..

HITCH: Hopefully you (and everyone else) will like it. That or they’ll think I’m butchering you.

HITCH:Should see the first two scenes fully pencilled next week.

HITCH: maybe more if things go well. Just settling to it nicely.

BENDIS: it will be the best issue of power pack ever!! :)

HITCH: …for grown ups. The sex scenes and graphic violence you wrote may have to be toned down. This isn’t a Millar Comic.

So there we have it folks. A Brian Bendis/Bryan Hitch comic project in the pipeline. Both prominent Marvel creators, they’ve never worked together before. Both were early proponents of the modern decompressed comic book, though with remarkably different approaches. It should be a very interesting combination indeed. And Hitch is working on it right now.

I wonder if it could be Marvelman? No of course not. But still. Maybe a Siege-related oneshot? At this point Bryan Hitch began to tease his audience…

HITCH: okay, so you know I’m doing something with Bendis. here’s a clue: the first page uses the words “I’m Coming…” no Joke.

HITCH: the preceding balloon says” …It’s very difficult for me to come…”

HITCH: next page: “I’ve waited years for you to come”. Bendis, dood. Is this really the Rom/Millie team up people want?

Expect a proper announcement at some point of other.
